Ethernet Adapter for IBM Thinkpad

I have an IBM 760L Thinkpad laptop computer (Type 9547-UO1-S1N23-H9130). I have been using an Olicom Go Card Combo Eth/Modem 336 (OC-2232) for dial up service through AOL. I just had Cablevision Optimum broadband installed but cannot hookup my computer to the Cablevision modem. I am told that I need an Ethernet Adapter PCMCIA Card for my computer (that only has Windows 95 now). The adapter card that Cablevision tried would not fit into my computer slot. Do you know what type of adapter card will fit and where I can buy it (e.g. make, number, etc.)?? I know little about computers but am very anxious to re-hook up my computer to the internet.

THANKS!!

here you go... it's an 1 slot PCMCIA. I'm sure there's cheaper one out there but with a quick search , this one came up.
good luck. This is hardline ethernet connector (not wireless).
ps. might want to upgrade your OS :)

    After searching, the drive that both of us suggested will nto work b/c it requires CD-Rom drive to install the driver.



    For my card suggestion, it will not work b/c it doesn't support Win95. Will look for other cards that does support Win95

Connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then plug the USB adapter with the hard drive into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders and files and backup or copy them to the computer.

  • Selected models will have Intel Wireless and modem Mini PCI combo cards

How to turn on wifi


hi

the T42 does not have WiFi, instead it facilitates internet connection via 16 BIT & 32 Bit PCMCIA slot to install a WiFi card , in order to go on the internet.

The ThinkPad uses the following adapters: v 360, 365X, 380, 600: 16-Bit PCMCIA v T20, T22, T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI v T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI Daughter Card v T30: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB) v T4x: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB). 16- and 32-Bit PC Card adapters are configured during ThinkPad initialization. Network Interface Controller data rates are: v For Token Ring: 4/16 MBps v For Ethernet: 10 Mbps...........16 bit PCMCIA 10/100 Mbps.......32 bit CardBus 10/100 Mbps.......MiniPCI and Daughter Card 10/100 Mbps.......T3x and T40 LOB 10/100/1000 Mbps..T42 LOB The MiniPCI Ethernet adapter is accessed behind a removable plate located on the bottom of the ThinkPad directly above the Model/Type S/N sticker. For T20 and T22, the MiniPCI adapter may be an Ethernet/Modem combination card. The Daughter Card (T23) is secured with two screws and is located next to the MiniPCI modem adapter.

Does IBM THINKPAD type 2652 1.8GHs has wifi cards


This particular model don't have a built in wireless card on it , it only has a Integrated Network Card for wired connection .

So if you want to make this laptop work wireless you need to get a wireless adapter like this adapter from Linksys WPC54G or WUSB54GC so this laptop can be use wirelessly.

Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.
