On Lenovo (IBM) website there are dropdown with 3 types for the R50e i.e 1834, 1842 and 2670 meaning once one of the 3 is chosen , you will be able to choose the Model and then the Operating System....have you done that so that you get the right d'load?

Alterantively you may be having problems installing it due to an anti-virus program or not having the right application/program to run open the driver package, in what ever extension it is in, i.e .exe, .rar, .zip

Anyway I hope you got it from this page below, you just have to choose the OS and whether Wireless or Wired Lan Driver

Ethernet controller i need to instal ibm thinkpad r50e


The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

Hi, Here you can find all the drivers for your computer: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55042.html
Please note that usually network card does not requires drivers for Ethernet port - Your network might eventually be defective if all drivers installed does not fix the issue.

I have just reinstalled my friends IBM Thinkpad R50e with XP and I can't get internet working, wired or wireless


This the common catch 22 that happens when you install XP and it does not have the network drivers for the laptop you are working with on the disc. The fix is to go on the internet and download the drivers for your device, but wait... you can't get on the internet!

You will need a 2nd computer and a thumb drive/blank CD to resolve this. On the 2nd computer go to IBM's site to download your drivers here:
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-55042.html

Download the network drivers to your thumb drive/CDR then install them on the R50e. In the future you should always keep a thumb drive or a burnt cd of your network drivers handy BEFORE an OS reinstall. Once you have the network drivers installed you can fix pretty much anything else that needs drivers. Also, be sure to run windows update and get all the patches for XP. It will take a long time, but it is VERY important.
