This lady just got an IBM thinkpad with a lucent wifi pc card (yeah i know, old). Anyway this lady wants to use it and asked me to configure her card to her home network. Thing is I have no clue, I've always had issues with wireless connections. I figured I'd look for the name of the wireless network and I think i found it. I punched it in her laptop and I think its connected but still no internet connection. Any and all help is welcomed, thnx!

Yeah she has a network at home with a couple pcs and a couple of game consoles. She wants to use this old laptop for her writing but she wants to be able to access the web.

The pc card model a Lucent Technologies PC24E-H-FC ORINOCO GOLD
The laptop is an IBM Thinkpad (I can't find the specific model). It's running Windows 2000 PRO off a Pentium 3 (HAHA).

Does her router have security settings? If so, you're going to have to work around those...or turn them off until you have this issue resolved.

Is she using WEP or WPA for the encryption key?
Does the wireless card support either of these encryption methods?
What wireless standards does that card support and what standard is enabled in the wireless router config?
