Question about IBM ThinkPad 570E Notebook
I have a very old laptop. IBM ThinkPad 570 with Windows 2000/Xp. I can't seem to get the internet connection on it. i have the wireless connection and the disc that goes with it. but when i tried to install it, it doesn't work. the wireless card and the router is fine. but could the problem be the fact that the computer is too old? or maybe something is wrong with the motherboard? please help!!!
This is going to be with the machine, yes, too old. These machines take a 16 bit wireless card which is almost impossible to find since they stopped making them 6 or 7 years ago, and 16 bit cards were never produced by cellular providers, so a cellular card is completely out of the equation. The cards on the market today are a 32 bit card. I know you're trying to go wireless, but if you want to connect to high speed, you can use a bus port ethernet card that will allow you to plug an ethernet cable into the machine.
