But not just for the ethernet or wifi but the motherboard drivers are usually overlooked. Sorry, but the easy way out is to use the Restore CDs for the laptop then upgrade to XP Pro.
I had to reinstall XP Pro on my Pentium 4 IBM T30 model 2367 laptop recently, everything works fine including the internet network via my wired ethernet connection but not wireless. I've used and tried all 7 of the possible drivers for the Belkin wireless adapter, supposed to be version 7 in my case, plus reinstalled all possible drivers via the Lenovo/IBM website but the device manager still shows the network adapter as a network controller in yellow with an exclamation and question mark, i just cant figure out how to reconfigure this laptop to get wireless networking, which was working fine before the crash. I've done all the updates and installations for the drivers correctly, rebooting, etc. The Belkin network manager shows no network, and i cant add a network via this software so that it shows my Sitecom wireless router. Any ideas on what i'm doing wrong?
