network on ibm T42 laptop


I’ve a T42 and qnx don’t find network card… what can i do???


You should find out exactly what ethernet chipset is in your laptop, the specifications might be on IBM’s website, or maybe Windows will tell you. It’s possible that the ethernet is just not supported, and you might need to get a PCMCIA ethernet card.

Type the command “pci -v” in a shell. You’ll find a “Network” device in the list.

I’ve find this :

Class =Network(Ethernet)
Vendor ID = 8086h, Intel Corporation
Device ID = 101eh, Unknown Unknown

What can I do with this?

I’d guess that might work. I was going to point to the right page but the new method QSS have chosen makes it impossible. :frowning:

For a test run, try: io-net -ptcpip -di82544 did=0x101e
This should bring up a Devices tab in the network prefs if it works.

PS: Make sure all copies of io-net are slayed before each attempt.

I have not the file :frowning: where can i find it?

Interesting, I guess it’s new for QNX 6.3.0. It’s unlikely it’ll run under 621 … Some more downloading for ya ;)
