Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook ?

Internet Connection My older brother gave me his IBM thinkpad 2647 to use and I can't figure out how to get an internet connection through wireless or ethernet. I have a 3com Megahertz 10/100 CardBus PC card with XJACK Connector which is the only way I can get the ethernet to come up at all on my modem. I have set up my initial connection to the internet through a friends laptop but still can can't get anywhere with mine. I tried calling the Att highspeed/dsl/wireless tech support and they could


Answers :

A few years ago, i too had an IBM thinkpad and encountered some issues as well when connecting to the internet.

The IBM 2647 does not have a built in wireless card, meaning that you need to purchase one from your local electronics store to use wireless internet. The software provided with these CD's can often be quite helpful and will help you set up the connection.

The 2647 only supports an analog modem connection, and the modem in the area you are attempting to connect via ethernet may use a digital modem. Adapters are available although they are quite pricey (ranging from $200 and up.)


Hope this helps.
