Look in the mini-pci slot on the back of your computer (1 screw opens the compartment) and make sure you have the 10/100 ethernet & 56k combo modem & that both plugs are firmly seated in their ports on the mini-pci card.

sometimes there is just a 56k modem card installed, in which case you will not have ethernet high speed internet capability.

Easy to tell which mini-pci card you have.
1. The ethernet/modem combo has two ports on the card (wide for ethernet & skinny for modem) to connect to the corresponding two wires coming from the motherboard.

2.The modem alone one only has one skinny port available on the card .

Amber light is flashing on network card


Switch off the printer, re connect the net work cable, switch on the machine & wait till ready mode comes.. Go to administration on control panel, select configure device,select configuration page, print,, total three print out will come, in that see the IP address.. If any IP address showing, ping that IP from system, if its pings, reload the drivers once again.. check for the print. If no IP adress showing in configuration page, try with another net work cable & try above said exercise.. Even no luck, remove formatter from the slot & re-fix once again & try... Even no luck.. it might be network port faulty. If its warranty contact HP support for free replacement.. If no warranty purchase HP620n or higher version of zetdirect card(net work card) install it... But take service engineers suggestion before replacing the network card..

I bought 1 box of belden cat5e for LAN. when i test it with LAN tester the cables are good but when i connect it to the modem/hub it is not connecting.. please help me.. thanks..


If you've tested the cable and your not getting a link light, there is a posibility that either the port in the switch or the network card is bad.You can try moving the cable to an existing working port on the switch to see if it links up. If not then try another device like a laptop or printer with a NIC card on the cable

I FORMATTED MY MACHIN BUT NOW I DIDN'T GET THE NETWORK DRIVER


Hi,
if it's a genuine IBM computer, give their support line a ring and ask.
You can also visit their website and in the Support section, have a look for the network driver for your particular computer model.
What model is your IBM computer?
In system properties, can you click update driver for the network card?
To get here click on Windows Start (bottom left of your screen), then select Run, then type in the box this: sysdm.cpl then hit OK. Then select Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Scroll down to your Network Card which will probably have a Yellow exclamation mark next to it. Double click on the network card, then Select Driver and then Update Driver.
If you are on the net at the time Windows should search the web for the right network driver.
Cheers,
Steve

IBM ThinkPad T20


Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.

The ethernet port is not working, and the network card is not being detected in device manager


If the device manager is not detecting the network device it is not going to work. turn off the laptop and remove the network/modem device located on the bottom of the laptop, then restart the laptop, now shutdown the laptop again and reinstall the device restart the laptop if device manager still does not detect the device then it is defective and will need to be replaced.
