Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook ?

No ethernet with docking station

\015 I have a T43 laptop and when I connect it to a socking station the ethernet does not work and is unable to get a connection. I have tried with several different stations and get the same problem, so im pretty sure its not a faulty station. When plugged directly into the laptop there is no problem but once its hooked to the station I am unable to connect. Everything on the laptop is updated, (drivers etc). Any ideas? Any suggestions and or feedback is greatly appreciated.\015

Try turning off the computer, removing the laptop from the docking station, rebooting, right clicking on my computer, in the system properties box, go to the hardware tab, delete the docking station profile, turn off and put the laptop back on the docking station, boot up and let it reacquire settings. Sometimes the software connection to the docking station gets corrupted and reacquiring the settings will often do the trick with anything that works on the laptop but not on the docking station.
