We bought two new Levono PCs last week, that both run XP. One is a cheaper version (R60) and one is a slightly more expensive one (T60).
We have a wireless router set up in our house already, that I've been using with my old laptop without issues for a while. The T60 connects to this network with ease, and I'm writing from it now, so there are no connection issues. The R60 also connects to the network, but it will not connect to the internet.
I have checked every setting I've heard of, found or searched for, but I cannot locate a fault. Internet options are set to detect automatically. IP- and DNS-addresses are set to be automatic. The "ThinkVantage" says that we can access the network, but not the internet, and gives an error message saying "Verify the configuration of your firewall program" - but the firewall settings are the exact same as on this computer.
Any ideas? The only things I can think of are:
This computer (the T60) has an AEGIS Protocol (IEEE 802.1x) installed, which the other computer does not, but if I go to the wireless network settings, the authorisation tab is disabled for IEEE 802.1x. (I have no clue what this is, other than what I could read on Wikipedia).
The R60 has a host name that was written with Norwegian characters, which doesn't work (they've been replaced with other characters), but I thought that was only relevant if you hook up the computers in a local network?
Sorry for the long post, but I'm lost and have used a lot of time on this. I greatly appreciate any help that can move me toward a solution.
