Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook ?

My thinkpad will not connect to our wireless router. it shows our neighbors routers. I am on my husband's laptop which is right next to my laptop. His laptop is showing full signal. We have a Linksys wireless router, that we do not have problems with. It does require a password to connect to.


Answers :

Sounds like your wireless card is not configured properly. Go to Control Panel - Network Connections - new Connection and set up wireless config . Reboot and it should see your router and then log on using password
Check you internet settings. Set up a home network from your computer and use all the recommended and default and automatic settings. Then the program will renew the IP address on YOUR pc to match the routers.

To access your router. Go to your pc's web address and type 192.168.1.1
If it by chance asks for username and password, type "admin" for both. Now you can set up your router options from your pc
