ThinkCentre m72z ethernet controller can't be installed

2013-05-09, 16:20 PM
I am trying to enable the ethernet driver on a ThinkCentre M72Z 3554-AQ8 that was not preloaded and did not even had a media disc with drivers, I downloaded them all from the webpage but the only one that does not work is this one according to the support site there are only 2 drivers both of them are Realtek but in the end the controller does not get installed and It can be used, I have the cable plugged and the signal light goes on on it, I have tried to get the driver from the update page of microsoft since I have windows 7 running on the pc, I have tried to get in the support page of intel and I have run the driver scan tool but it says that with the ethernet controller there is an error. Teh pc is brand New so I am really stressed out with this isue since the pc was requested by the CEO of the company, hope I can get some help in this forum.

I am having the sme issue as the original poster.  I am doing an install of Vista Business x86, all drivers are working properly except the network controller.

 

Hardware ID's

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_42628086&REV_C4
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_42628086
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0888&CC_028000
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0888&CC_0280

 

It is definately the Intel Wireless N2230.  I have downloaded the Lenovo drivers, I have tried the drivers directly from Intel as well.

 

The driver I downloaded from Lenovo appears to be 13.4.0.139 according to the .inf file.

 

The drivers direct from Intel were 14.3.0.

 

I have tried using the full installer - no joy.  I have tried to update drivers and point it directly at the Vista x32 driver folder.  No joy.

 

If I go into the BIOS and disable the wireless - my Network Controller issue goes away.

 

Anyone have a solution for Vista?

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

Hi dixons, Are the drivers getting installed on your machine?. If yes, is there a wifi led on your machine? are they glowing or ...?? If drivers are not getting installed, have you tried to update manual? Device manager>network controler>update driver> browse my computer>let me pick driver from list> network controler>have disk> "select the path where the files where extracted to (c:\drivers\win\......)) select Intel Wireless N2230.

For those unable to load ethernet drivers for the m72z. Go to the following website. https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds029370

You will be able to get the proper driver.
