T42-2373 BK4

2011-02-27, 16:16 PM

I can't get the wireless controler working on this computer I have tried every driver listed and none of them are working.  The device manager recognizes a Network controler but when I try to install the driver I get the message that "the device was not installed because the driver could not be found"   And yes I used the install from the c/drivers/.exe ...

 

Help needed, Thanks!!

 

 

 

Product: ThinkPad T42 2373-BK4   
Operating SYS win XP

Original description: Based 2373-4WU: P M 735(1.7GHz), 512MB RAM, 60GB 5400rpm HDD, 14.1in 1024x768 LCD, 32MB ATI Radeon 7500, 24x24x24x/8x CD-RW/DVD, Intel 802.11bg wireless, Modem, 1Gb Ether, UltraNav, Sec Chip, 6 cell Li-Ion Batt, WinXP Pro

Hi and welcome to the forum!


It's possible that you were installing wrong driver, this time before installing the following driver uninstall all previously installed wireless drivers and install this one:- http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/6hwc05ww.zip

 

Don't forget to install from C:/Drivers/...exe :P

 

Also verify that you see two devices under Network adapaters (LAN and wireless).


Keep us informed.
