I recently purchased an IBM ThinkPad T42. During the day this machine is attached to a docking station and used at work. At the end of the day I undock the computer and take it home with me. I am attempting to use IBM Access Connections to have the computer automatically switch between my home and work network settings. I set up a “Work” location profile that uses the NIC card and applied the appropriate proxy settings. I also set up a “Home” location profile that connects to my home wireless network and applied the appropriate proxy settings (none). The “Work” location profile works fine. The “Home” location profile does not. When I turn the computer on at home it automatically switches to the “Home” location profile and connects to my wireless network. I am then able to successfully ping the router and various web sites. However, when I attempt to view a website in IE I receive a “Page Cannot be Displayed” error. Does anyone know what may be causing this?
Thanks in advance for your help.
