I have a IBM T42 running on Windows XP. I can run several other computers through my modem but for some reason whether plugged in or wireless I can not get the T42 to log on to the internet. the error message that shows just says internet explorer cannot display web page yet connectivity indicates it is connected.

Hello,

I don't think the information about subnet mask is correct.
You may have copied incorrectly.
Can you please perform ipconfig/all again?

Can you also inform us if you are acquiring IP address automatically or have you set it as static?

Please post the exact results. Sorry for the trouble. :happy:
