Re: T61 won't connect to new router

Greetings gcrawf;

  One other trick you might try. As I had to do with 2 of our Thinkpads, I gave them a static IP address and used the other setup pages in Access Connection through XP SP3 networking required. I then went to my router's homepage and manually entered the MAC address from the bottom of the laptops in the "MAC Address Filtering" boxes. For some reason only our old IBM desktop and my wife's Acer laptop setup automatically via DHCP. Hope this helps in some way or others may use this as well.
