IBM laptops are supported by Lenovo www.lenovo.com.

As you did not mention which Operating System you require drivers for, here is the download page for that model:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-46024

I assume by LAN you mean the Ethernet port, not wireless. Please click on Networking: Ethernet to find the driver appropriate for your OS. Remember yours is the R40e.

In fact, there is only one driver for the R40e, covering Windows XP. Here is the direct link:

please change the cable which is connecting your laptop to D-Link DES 1005 Ethernet Switch.

This error appears when you have either a bad cable or bad switch or NIC card on Laptop.

Please use a new Straight LAN cable.

carry out the resetting of the dlink router
then use lan cable to gain access to dlink router,
set up the internet conenction (i.e. your internet provider modem plugged into the dlink router also)

if it has a built in wizard then just follow the on screen instructions

you will need to define SSID (wireless network name) and passkey (password for the wireless connection)

and the your done. disconnect the laptop from wired connection and connect via wireless

Lan has limited or no connectivity


go start /run and type cmd ,this brings up the command prompt
type cd \ and hit enter
type ipconfig/release
type ipconfig/renew
this should now have renewed your ip address
filally go to control panel internet options
and if your not using dialup remove it if its still showing
go to lan and auto detect settings
you should be ok now
