Thread: Can't find ethernet driver for my Lenovo T410

  1. #1

    Default Can't find ethernet driver for my Lenovo T410

    Hi All

    I have a Lenovo T410 laptop. I'm unable to find drivers for the ethernet card, the wireless card and graphics. I don't even know what hardware is installed in the system.

    Here is the product ID if it can help in identifying the hardware.

    Product ID : 2516CTO

    Please help me in installing the drivers for my laptop.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Juzer

    welcome new poster! i see this is your first post, would i be correct in
    assuming you have very little experience with Linux in general or
    openSUSE in specific?

    you say you need to find drivers--but, you don't say why....that is,
    generally when one loads openSUSE the install routine will provide an
    array of drivers fit for your machine....including drivers for wired and
    wireless internet and video graphics...

    are you saying you have none of these working:

    -wireless internet?
    -wired internet?
    -video display?

    did you install openSUSE yourself? what version? where did you get the
    install disk? did you do this prior to install: http://tinyurl.com/2ebcf27

    I'm pretty sure it should work.
    But it would help if you could post the result of:

    Yes you're right. I'm pretty much new to Linux.

    Now its not that that I can't see anything on the screen. The display is there but its just using the generic video drivers and I can't use my LCD's native resolution. I searched online for the ethernet card installed in my T410 and apparently I have an Intel 82577LM card installed. Therefore, I downloaded the drivers and Linux now seems to recognize my card although I'm still not able to connect to my LAN.

    And about the wireless and graphics, I'm still not sure.

    And yes, I've installed openSUSE 11.0 myself. I downloaded it off the internet and the DVD is in perfect health as well- as verified by the boot menu option.

    ok, i thought so from the way you phrased your question (sounded kinda
    like you were used to going out on the net and tracking down drivers
    from all over, like that other system was doing last century, AND this
    one)..

    you should expect to find and install most everything you want/need in
    one of the openSUSE repos...

    i see caf4936 asked a more direct question and answer leads me to notice
    you have nvidia graphics but i can't figure out which, so i'll wait for
    a nvidia guru to fix that up..

    i'm amazed that it didn't "just work"...i can't help with that either
    (mine just worked, whew!)

    well, when did you download that 11.0, i ask because it reached end of
    life on 26 July 2010!! cite: http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime

    so, that might account for why your install didn't "just work" (you have
    a lot of hardware that hadn't been thought of when 11.0 was released)..

    so, i'd suggest before you spend a lot more time on that install, you
    begin again, here: http://software.opensuse.org/

    As it looks like the ethernet controller is recognised and the driver is installed there seems to be a problem with the configuration. Can you please post the output of the following commands to get us going:

    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig
    
    /sbin/route -n
    
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    Thank you.

    Yes you're right. It might be because of this old distro that I'm having driver issues. But now my ethernet adapter is working. Unfortunately, I have installed so many applications and have made so many modifications to this installed version that reinstalling the whole thing might not be the option for me here

    Can I update from 11.0 to 11.4 though?

    Thanks for your comments.

    Yep, it's working now. Thanks a lot. However, I still need to find the drivers for my wireless and graphics card :S
