You need to download the driver to another computer then transfer it to your ibm by cd or usb drive or even floppy.

After you have the eternet installed then I would visit the Windows Update site and run a custom update so that it will detect missing drivers and install them. It might not detect everything but that's a good place to start.

Let me know if you have any other questions or problems.

Best of luck!

Ethernet controller on my laptop


Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
Use this link :-
http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download

After you download the driver file, click on this file and it will unzip/expand the drivers and copies the files to the hard drive in c:drivers... take a note of the folder it has created to store the driver files and then go to this folder and run the SETUP file.

Ethernet drivers


My thinkpad R50 also has same problem, I update the driver and patch from the lenovo . You can update your network card diver and then open the admin tools to add the ethernet controller. Take a try.

Good luck.

Sounds like you didn't download the right drivers. These devices will work if you get the right drivers, keep trying.
