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: R60F, R500F, T61, T410

Collecting dust: T60

Enjoying retirement: A31p, T42p,

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".
