The lights on the modem are flashing. The lights on the laptop are flashing. The "warning" said that there is limited connectivity. It seems that the computer is seeing the modem, but the internet can't be reached. There are 3 computers connected directly to the modem. The original 2 work fine. My wifes... well that is why I am here.
I have been on the phone 2 times with tech support from the company that installed the original network and DSL and they have been less than helpful. We have tried diferent IP address', rebooting the modem, and what seems like a million other things short of blowing up the whole system.
I have tried connecting the laptop directly to the modem (thinking my wiring was bad) and no luck. I brought the laptop home and connected it to my home Verizon DSL and it connected to the internet immediatly. I took my personal laptop into her work and it won't connect. My thought is that it is in the modem settings and the settings on the laptop are not matching. I am also thinking that there may be some sort of security settings that are blocking me. When I do a "repair" to the connection it hangs on the renewing IP address and then gives me an error message.
The laptop is an IBM thinkpad. The modem is a Diamond ADSL modem + Wireless 802.11G Router + Four Port Switch model #DSL642WLG.
Any advice would be helpful!
Thanks in advance
