    Have managed to upgrade an old Thinkpad laptop to win2k and am able to network it wirelessly to buffalo router. My problem is after upgrading to IE6 I cannot connect to the internet. BTW Only 64k RAM. have also tried firefox.

    What happens when you try to connect? Are you getting a valid IP address on your Thinkpad?

    Buffalo router IP is 192.168.11.1 and Thinkpad Ipconfig /all showsIP Address of 192.168.11.3 with Gateway, DHCP and DNS server set to 192.168.11.1
    I can copy files in both directions. Any suggestions gratefully received

    Thank you its been a real saga given to me last week as a win95 fat16 laptop with only a floppy disk available.
    Then after beating all the problems i can now access the internet from win2k, i was really pleased when it all came right
