Question about IBM EtherJet Network Adapter

1 Answer

Doesn't install properly on Thinkpad 760XL running WIN98 SE

Card is actually an IBM EtherJet 10/100 CardBus Adapter with 56K modem. I'm trying to bring up a wiped system with this card using the necessary files I found on the Lenovo site - installation, utilities and V.90 flash. The card seems to install but in Device Manager it says that IRQ steering must be enabled. Doing so doesn't change a thing. I've tried freeing up resources by disabling both the ES1688 AudioDrive and the Intrared PnP Serial Port but all this does is get me an extra IRQ11 as a holder for IRQ steering. If I try to set the NIC or modem resources manually I see only one basic configuration for each which have I/O Range conflicts that cannot be modified. I've also been trying to install a Linksys WPC54Gv7 Wireless-G Notebook Adapter in the other slot (both use a TI PCI-1130 CardBus Controller) with similar problems/non-results.
Thanking you in advance,

Make sure you have all the drivers handy.
Uninstall the sound
Uninstall the modem
Uninstall the nic drivers as well as the wirelss nic drivers.
Uninstall all others that have conflicts.
Remove the adapters out of the pcmcia slots. (Ethernet, etc
Shut down and restart the system.
The system should detect all hardware again.
Now if this laptop has an onboard nic and modem disabled them
Shut down and restart system.
Check control panel to make sure they are diabled.
Now istall the combo card nic/modem.
If this does not work you should try diabling them in the bios.
As for the wireless nic. You normally would have to install the software prior to inserting the adapter.

Let me know what happens
Hope this helps you

Does this devise pick up internet on laptop or desk top either one

Hi cfisherman8

This is a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Card.

It slots into the large PCMCIA Port that almost all larger laptops and notebooks have.

This device can also work in a Desktop computer but requires a PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter to be installed in the Desktop Computer for it to slot into. There are different types of Desktop PCMCIA Cardbus Adapter. Some types internally connect a PCMCIA Wireless Adapter Cardbus to an empty Motherboard PCI Slot and others externally connect a PCMCIA Cardbus to the computer via its USB or Serial Ports. See here for examples:

Other alternative internal wireless networking devices for Desktop computers include a PCI Wireless Network Card. See example here:

Once installed, it is able to send and receive data wirelessly between the computer and any Wireless Router/Modem to which the computer is configured to connect.

This device is most easily used with a Laptop. An easier solution for a Desktop PC would be a USB Wireless Adapter.

I hope this helps.

Think pad wireless card

You may try the following:

1) Plug the wireless card on another slot
2) Update the drivers of the wireless card

If those does not work, you may try to install the wireless card on another computer just to isolate if the problem is on the wireless card or on the slot of the computer
