    Hi there,



    For both of your suggested downloads, I had tried before your suggestion from lenovo support. None of them works for my problem. I purchased the pc on Dec. 2003, at the time it was still ibm's notebook.



    Could you give me a hand for the problem?

    Hi there,
    I tried all the downloads in the list you gave to me before. None of them can work for my problem. I thank you for your help, though.

    Hi Tim,

    Thank you for your help. However, my problem on my NB is still existing. I have been in PC industry for 10 years, finding drivers for me is not so difficult. Sorry I cannot press that bottom.

    Hi Tim,
    as I informed you before, I reformated my hard drive with Windows again. Because I do not have those Ethernet and Wireless drivers, I cannot access to internet. Therefore, I cannot locate them either. I just wonder if there is anyway that I can get away with this problem.

Sure thing, this should be the ethernet driver:

This should be the wireless, but there are many variations on this laptop, let me know if either of these don't work:

    Strange, ok well it has to be one on the list here, unfortunately there are many variations they put in, and I'm not sure which yours has, even based on the date. It will be one of these though, the best thing you can do is to download them all and try them:

    Hmmm, you may have an add on card of some sort... strange... If anything you can call Lenovo support.. They will know of some other drivers if such things exist, but they should be the ones I showed you there..

    If possible please come back to the question here and click the Accept
    This Solution button, otherwise I don't get credit for the help
    provided.



    Thank you so much,

    Hmm ok, well it doesn't make much sense that somehow you would have hardware that is not listed on the support page inside the laptop.... I work at IBM and have verified that those are the only hardware combinations out there for this laptop. I am sure you would know if you had an add in card as well. Have you tried the windows update driver search to see if it can locate them?

    I figured you don't have internet on the laptop, but you obviously have internet on whatever computer you are using now. Download the drivers, put them on a thumb drive (flash drive) or burn them to a cd...

    Oh I see what you're saying, for the windows update... You can use a USB wireless card or ethernet adapter. Here's a tip for you... you can always buy one at best buy, use it with the machine, and return it when done..

You need to download the drivers for your Netgear.
The IBM drivers also need to be found,Depending on your model, it may have WiFi. From IBM spec sheet:
  • 10/100 Ethernet installed on the system board
  • Selected models will have Intel Wireless and modem Mini PCI combo cards
  • Selected models will have CISCO Mini PCI card
  • Selected models will have Bluetooth communication daughter card

Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.

Operating Systems as supplied from new.
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005

Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?

IBM ThinkPad i Series 1200


Try this driver. I've used it on a few I-series Thinkpads that I've had come through my shop. After the download, uninstall the ethernet drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the ethernet port and reinstall the drive automatically. If this one doesn't work for you, let me know, an d we'll try a different one.
