Thinkpad T42 - No Ethernet

Hey all. I got a Thinkpad T42 and a few Unknown devices. and no network part in my device manager. I got the Ethernet driver from this site and followed the instructions. but it wont take it for some reason. Does anybody have a possible solution as to what is happening?

 

Thanks,

 

Mitch

Welcome to the forum!

 

After downloading the driver, have you unpacked it from the appropriate directory, should be C>Drivers>Win>Ethernet?

 

Good luck and let us know.

Cheers,

George

That is correct. I also just tried it in safe mode, and the network card is there and functioning. But am still unable to access the internet

Static or dynamic IP address?

Dynamic. I have tried static but still a no go. Also after I see taht its "installed Correctly" in safe mode I try again in Reg mode and its got the Yellow Circle w/ the ! in it.

Re: Thinkpad T42 - No Ethernet

I'd un-install the driver and start fresh...this is the one we're discussing, correct?
