Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook ?

After re-installed my t42 2373K1U with windows XP SP3, the internal wireless network controller is no longer working. I have tried to download several drivers from Lenovo website but they all failed to recognize the hardware. Can anyone please help?


Answers :

When you download the T40 device drivers, they need to be the XP versions.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one.
