Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook PC - Intel Pentium M 1.73GHz, 1GB DDR2, 40GB HDD, DVD, WiFi 14 ?

Internet connectivity problems on my type 1872 T43 help me!!!

\015 I purchased my t43 last year with a legal genuine version of xp\015\012professional and in the last couple months, as my computers so often\015\012do, this computer had begun to run slowly dragging out the amount of\015\012time to preform basic processes. Long story short my computer\015\012completely crashed and since I didn't have anything important on it I\015\012reformatted the hard drive. Now with xp reinstalled the computer can't\015\012seem to find some necessary drivers. Under the device manager under\015\012other devices there are: ethernet controller, multimedia audio\015\012controller network controller pci modem unknown device (x2) video\015\012controller, video controller vga compatible. I went to the lenovo\015\012website and downloaded several drivers that did not help. The laptop\015\012won't connect to internet via any platform, so I can't run any of the\015\012diagnostics that I know how to use. I do not know much about\015\012taking apart laptops or cs in general, but I do need this laptop for\015\012school and definitely can't afford to get it fixed, so I plan to try to\015\012learn and would greatly appreciate any advice.Thanks for reading Marty\015

No don't re install ,there is nothing to re install to, If you have your router hooked to the modem and your laptop in front of you, you may still need the Dns and ip address from your provider, but this is how you would normally set up, either wired or wireless. If router is a linksys, the router ip window is, just keep that aside for now. Rt click on the my network connections icon on your desktop, go to properties and click again and you will see, establish network connection, just fill in the wizard as it asks you the questions, it may ask for certain things that you need to get from your isp, but it also may not, so go as far as you can, and if necessary, call and get the ip, or dns or mac filter, again you may not need any of theese because of the router. The router will want the security type that you are using like wep1, wep2 personel, etc, just pick the basic one that uses both types like wireless b,g, or both, then you will be asked for an encryption key, you can make that whatever 10 digit number you choose, phone numbers are good if you need to remember it. And you should be ok, I will check in on you later on this evening to see how you are doing, good luck

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
