Hi, I already tried the latest E1000 drivers and unless you got some secret lab version, I doubt yours would make any difference.
The chipset changed between in the PL version of the PCI card, I was able to confirm that in various newsgroups, and so other people have the same problem (Linux, BeOS...) that their "old" E1000 drivers no longer work.
And for the T43p there is a WiFi card from Broadcom that has official OS/2 support, even w/o GenMac.
I was able to read through their docu file before I made my purchase decision.
And you are right, at this stage I have to stop wasting time on that T60p nonsense and get back to work.

OK, Rick, I think we can both say that we took "umbridge" at phrasing
used in each others texts - lets drop that.

It is, unfortunately, still an issue with eCS that new hardware support
takes longer to come along for eCS than for Linux and of course the
manufacturers always produce Windoze drivers.

I agree with you that there are too many issues on that particular T60
model - I had a T42 working fully (except for the dial-up modem) under
eComstation 1.2 and have a T30 working now, just as well under eCS 2.0
beta - but in both cases these use older chipsets.

I thought you were going to say the WiFi is a 2945ABG or a 3945ABG - it
doesn't help you however several people have reported issues with these
cards and Genmac The requirement I believe is being worked on. If your
T42p uses a 2945ABG, you're probably still going to have issues, however
if it is the 2200BG, that one seems to be the one that works the best as
a Mini-PCI card in Thinkpads with GenMac. I have this card in both the
T42 and added one successfully into the T30.

Without suitable video drivers a laptop is a real "dog" I don't know
what is planned in the next release of Scitech SNAP.

I have two different Intel Pro/1000 drivers that I could send you
directly to try - you'll need to give me your e-mail address however as
this list hides the senders e-mail address - I guess to protect against

However I think you're at the point where you don't feel like investing
anymore effort - which I can completely understand.
