Ethernet port not working

My Thinkpad became infected and efforts to remove it were unsucessful and I had to reload the operating system. Everything appears to be working except the RJ45 ethernet port. What driver(s) do I need to get this machine back to normal?

How the change ethernet port on my t43 thinkpad


To change the Ethernet port you need you open up everything and tell some technician who can repair mother board.
But still i'll not suggest you to do that because after repairing mother board you never know when you might get some other problem too.
So i'll suggest you to buy and use USB to Ethernet converter which is Cheap and easy to use also.

I loaded xp pro but my ethernet port is not active. Do I need to load ethernet drivers?


That means that the operating system doesn't have a database for your Ethernet device. You have to have the driver that came together with your PC and you should find the driver for your Ethernet device using that.

IBM ThinkPad i Series 1200


Try this driver. I've used it on a few I-series Thinkpads that I've had come through my shop. After the download, uninstall the ethernet drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the ethernet port and reinstall the drive automatically. If this one doesn't work for you, let me know, an d we'll try a different one.

Computer is infected with viruses


Blue screens as a result of infection mean the virus has corrupted the operating system. You can fix it by doing an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Depending on the virus, this may only be a temporary fix. If this turns out to be a temporary fix, then the sure way to fix it is to completely wipe the hard drive, completely reformat using NTFS, and reload the operating system, which I would recommend. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the virus damaged the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

Ibm think pad t30


Hi,

To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.

Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
