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"

    If your computer has USB ports, I would buy a USB Ethernet adapter and use that. I doubt that you will be able to find any PC Cards that are supported by Windows 7. PC Cards have fallen out of favor.

    Here's an example of a USB Ethernet adapter:

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.
please go to this link to read the manual -- it will explain the features for this ThinkPad of various series T42 model-type .

I have a dell inspiron 2650 aproximatly 2002. I have tried to install a dynex usb 2.0 cardbus adapter unsuccessfully and it slows down then shuts down my laptop. the instructions say to just put the card...


Hi there! The Cardbus adapter should come with a cd installer/driver. The driver should be compatible with the operating system you're running on your com[puter.

Try to install the driver first adn then when prompted, insert the cardbus adapter.

Hope it works!

XP won't boot without IBM 10/100 EtherJet NIC


Check the BIOS to make sure the machine is not trying to boot off of the network card (PXE boot) and make the hdd in question the primary boot device.

2 ethernet cards can't work together


If in your network you are connecting computers directly to a PC thru multiple nics and not a router or hub leaving one as server and the others as clients and that server is NT 4,0

NT 4,0 can not auto configure the cat5 cable and would need at least 1 cable to be a cross-over and not a patch.

Doesn't install properly on Thinkpad 760XL running WIN98 SE


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

Quantum Maxtor Serial Adapter


Though I suspected that I already knew the answer to your question about a source for drivers for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter, I wanted to research this in order to be able to provide PROOF that my answer is correct. As a result, I've now spent more than two hours researching this issue for you... As it turns out, the drivers you have requested are actually EMBEDDED within Windows itself, and have been ever since the release of Windows 98 Second Edition. They are listed within Windows as "OHCI 1394" drivers, which is another designation for FireWire / IEEE1394 device drivers. According to the Seagate / Maxtor Knowledge Base, there are NO downloadable drivers for the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter, and none have ever existed. The software originally provided on the CD in the retail package for the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter did NOT include drivers, which I'll explain in more detail later... As a general rule, when installing the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter into a system for the first time, you insert the PCMCIA card into the Type II slot while Windows is loaded, NOT while the system is shut down; after inserting the card into an empty Type II CardBus slot, you should then hear a tone indicating that Windows has detected a device in the slot. The Add New Hardware Wizard should then load, and you might be prompted to insert your Windows CD into your optical drive, though this should NOT be necessary if you've previously installed any other FireWire devices on the same system. You can download the Installation Guide (in .PDF file format) for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter from either of the following links: http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/maxtor/en_us/documentation/ins tallation_guides/1394_cardbus_installation_guide.pdf http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000 041641.pdf Simply right-click one of those links, and choose the "Save As..." option to download and save the Installation Guide to your Desktop, or to another folder where you can find it easily... The following links should help you to learn more; the first link explains the reason why drivers are NOT available for download for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter: http://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_adp.php?p_faqid=831 The next link describes a known problem (and the solution) when the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter is installed on some IBM Thinkpad laptops: http://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_adp.php?p_faqid=1959 The next link describes the hardware and software requirements for installing the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter: http://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_adp.php?p_faqid=762 As I've previously mentioned, the original software (on the CD-ROM) provided with the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter were the "MaxTools" utilities (which I have NOT been able to locate for download); they were NOT actual hardware drivers for a Windows OS... Well, I hope this solves the mystery of the "missing" FireWire drivers; though I don't recall ever needing to load third-party drivers for ANY FireWire devices I've installed in a Windows system, I wanted to be able to PROVE to you (and to anyone else who reads this in the future) that the drivers are already embedded within Windows, and that they are NOT available for download. As long as you use a supported version of Windows (all versions beginning with the release of Windows 98 Second Edition), you already have the drivers available, though Windows will probably need to extract them from the Windows CD, if they haven't been loaded onto the system previously. Good luck with this; let us know if you have any problems installing your FireWire card. I don't think that is likely to happen, as long as you follow the steps in the Installation Guide. You might want to create printouts of those Seagate Knowledge Base pages (or copy them to your hard drive, or at the least, bookmark the individual links) for future reference.

Machine locks up


install the vendor specifig driver for the PCMCIA. because windows XP sp2 is also able to detect the device and when you push the device online it is detecting and there is some other device which has got same IRQ and that is conflict with this and stop. see any error that is generated in event viwer * run>type "eventvwr" and enter * see the application/system try to detect your error log and see what microsoft says about it. otherwise post the error report Thanks Arun
