Re: Ethernet driver IBM ThinkPad T42

Welcome to the forum!


Here's the driver :


After downloading it, you must unpack it from C>Drivers>Win>Ethernet.


Hope this helps.



In daily use: T43pSF, R60F, T61, X220T, X301

Collecting dust: T60, T60p, T61p, R500F

Rebuilding: A31p, T42p,

I build FrankenPads....scary FrankenPads...

S = SATA-mod (on T43/p units only)
F = FrankenPad
L = LED-mod utilizing an UXGA AFFS LED screen

Please DO NOT PM me with requests for individual support, but post your questions and concerns in the appropriate section of the forum where other users can benefit from them as well. Thank you.

Re: Windows 7 IBM Thinkpad T42 2373 4wg Network Controller issue.

Hi team,


I just installed a Windows 7 on a second hand IBM Thinkpad T42 2373 4WG and I am having an issue finding the Network Controller driver.

I've been looking everywhere for this driver, but every single one that I install, does not work.

I hope you guys can help me with this because I don't know where to look anymore.

Thanks in advance, Cleber

Use Windows Update and look under "Optional Updates".
