IBM Thinkpad, Can't connect to the internet
Posted on 2004-04-12
I don't know what to do anymore. I received this new IBM Thinkpad from my work and I can not connect to the internet at home. I am fairly proficient with networking and such, but just can't figure it out. I have a linksys wireless router that is giving out dynamic ip addresses. When I turn my computer on it recognizes the router, but I can't even connect to the router's homepage via an internal ip.
I have even tried modifying my tcp/ip setting to resolve the static ip I have with my service provider dsl extreme. This didn't work either. My computer recognizes a connection but doesn't connect. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions would be great.
I am on Windows XP, with an IBM Thinkpad Type 2373.
I know the connection works because I have a Tosiba Tecra and a Sony Vaio that both connect without a problem.
