Hi

The drivers for the laptop components like the network adapter are probably not installed, you have to use another computer and download the drivers from http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46024.html

save the files into a usb memory stick, then move the stick to the ibm laptop, open the stick from my computer, run the setup program or extract the drivers and install them from setup or install file, if you don't have such a file with the files, heres how to install xp drivers manually. read that page it has the instructions on how to install drivers for a device by hand.

If you have a Factory Recovery Partition, Reboot and use the procedure in this forum: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/R-and-L-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/Product-Recovery-Windows-XP-ThinkPad-R50e/td-p/92036 OR, If you have the Factory Recovery Disks, put Disk 1 in the CD ROM and reboot, OR contact IBM for a Set of Factory Recovery Disks, if available.

Ibm thinkpad r40e laptop lan ethernet driver


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 XP or Vista devicedrivers for your 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=trueYoucan download the various drivers and then you click on and run the variousdriver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\driversThen install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Factory settings


Use a Recovery CD that came with your laptop.
The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the IBM/Lenovo WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.


Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your 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
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder.

I want to download lan driver for my ibm 2684 laptop.


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

I assume by IBM 2684 you actually mean IBM Thinkpad R40e. 2684 is one of the two types of that model. There are many further sub-models.

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:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-50161

I hope this solves your issue.

You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP audio driver for your model laptop,
www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39956.html

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.
