    Laptop does not recognize LAN cable

    Hi, unfortunately I have no right answer here to my problem. The laptop of an IBM ThinkPad T42 cannot see the LAN cable. Thus, there is no way to get into the Internet. Wireless Lan does not work either. The device manager both the Ethernet adapter and the network controller with the yellow question mark labeled. The current drivers I have loaded on it via USB port but not detected. The operating system is Windows XP, SP2. I have tried all things, but the router does not recognize it or not this laptop's LAN cable. I have a EasyBox 602 of Vodafone. A friend of mine is with his router other providers came with the laptop to the Internet. Perhaps someone can help me here. Thanks in advance.

    I want to know here that What is displayed under Device status, if you go in Device Manager the Ethernet adapter properties? Moreover, again: What You Did exactly as "not recognized" when installing the driver? And the second thing is that Via cable or via Wi-Fi? And the third thing is that Open a command prompt window (Start -> Run -> cmd) and type there: ipconfig / I have Post the output here (the line "physical address" please leave out). Copy the text goes beyond the editing capabilities of the system menu in the upper left corner of the window.

    Run the downloaded driver file (7ira09ww.exe). Thus, the driver is unpacked (not everything happens as a result). Should you, the default file does not regularly revising that drivers will be unpacked in the following folder: C \ DRIVERS \ Win \ ETHERNET. Incidentally, you can delete that folder after the installation.
    • Go in Device Manager the Ethernet Controller "Update Driver". You will see the Hardware Update Wizard.
    • Choose the question "Should ...?": connect to Windows Update" No, ...".
    • Choose the question "How would you proceed?": "Install from a list of install ...".
    • Select on the next page: 'Search this sources ... ". Remove the tick "Search removable media" at. Set the checkbox "Include this location in search". Fill in there the path of the folder where the unzipped driver files, and attach \ PRO1000 \ Win32 (C: \ DRIVERS \ Win \ ETHERNET \ PRO1000 \ Win32 if you the path did not top last, that would be). Explanation: In the packed driver file contains a driver for multiple controllers, each with its own subfolder. This will need a \ PRO1000 \ Win32 are appended.
    • After "Next" You should see the drivers are installed.
    • - Install the drivers I think the way for one of the worst successful parts of Windows XP.
