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.
Ibm t30 wireless network problem
The worst bit is i didnt have any restore discs to begin with the laptop, but i will try as you suggest and download some motherboard drivers, thanks. I've spent a week messing about with it and its truly driving my potty !
IBM T30 wireless network error
I'm still having the same problem, i've downloaded all the drivers i could see for the motherboard and anything else possible, still the same problem with the network controller on device manager showing up in yellow exclamation and question mark.
ibm t30 and belkin f5d7010 wireless problem
Still no luck, exactly the same problem with the network controller error.I was thinking, when i take out the belkin network adapter that the netowork controller vanishes and every other bit of hardware is showing as being installed correctly, when i put the adapter back in the network controlled error returns. So surely this must have something to do with the belkin adapter? As i've said before, i've tried all the IBM and Belkin drivers, does anyone think trying a completely different network adapter pcmpcia card would be worth trying, or does anyone have any other suggestions ?
While you are not on Vista...
You could check out how our members are finding ways (and drivers) via tools like EVEREST and more on our Vista Forum.
Sorry but I think a driver appears to be missing. You could have some other issue such as the cracked XP Pro I see floating into the service area from time to time. I've found no time to see what it has issues like this. Or your CD is not a XP SP2 CD. Again, that issue (SP2 CD) is one that rankles many since they feel the old XP (no SP) CD should be enough.
All I can say ...
I got an T30 with a totally blank hard disk. I installed Windows XP, got all drivers from the lenovo-site, bought a wireless card (Belkin also), installed it, and it worked. I must have been lucky. But, alas, I can't tell you why it doesn't work with you.
A yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager is a clear sign of not having a working driver, I'm afraid.
ibm t30 belkin wireless network controller error
The laptop recognises the card when it is connected, but the lights on the card dont show anymore, they come on very dimly when the card is first connected but that is all. Do you think the card is damaged ? Under device manager, Under network adapters it just shows Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection. Underneath it has Other Devices in yellow, which has Network Controller in yellow in it. I downloaded everest home and under network i have windows network showing an intel(R) pro/100 VE network connection and then also a pci/pnp network it showed ibm pro/100 ve network connection and secondly a network controller(NoDB).
I dont have any cards used in this slot. Funnily enough, when my laptop crashed the only way i got it working was by trying out ubuntu, but i couldnt use it because i couldnt configure the wireless network on ubuntu, so i reverted back to windows xp pro.
It migjht be a good idea ...
to try the card in another laptop and another card in this laptop.
belkin f5d7010 network controller error
I've tried on another laptop and it shows on the device driver up as texas instruments pci-1410 cardbus controller, so i presume i need to find the driver for this and it should work?
Sorry, that was for the actual laptop ! It shows up on device driver as the belkin adapter, looking at the driver properties it seems the filename is netr61.sys, which i presume is what i now need to find?
