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

I have a ibm 10/100 etherjet cardbus adapter and am trying to get it up and working on my laptop that is running windows 7. Previously when i was running windows xp it work perfect but since i installed...

Unfortunately, this adapter is 10 years old and Microsoft and IBM have decided that you've used this network adapter for quite long enough and you need to buy a new one.
Microsoft and IBM have not and probably won't provide drivers for Windows 7 for this adapter. I looked at the Lenovo/IBM web site, and the last version of Windows that was supported by IBM was Windows XP. There are no drivers listed for Vista, so I'm very certain that there will be no drivers for Windows 7.
This is what is known as "planned obsolescence"
