All ThinkPad's produced the last several years have one of three Ethernet controllers integrated.
+
 
+
The Ethernet controller is located on either a MiniPCI card or Communications Daughter Card, or integrated on the systemboard.
+
 
+
=== 3COM 10/ 100 Ethernet Mini PCI Adapter With 56k Modem ===
+
Chipset: 3c556b<br>
+
Driver: 3c59x<br>
+
IBM Partnumber: 22P7594
+
 
+
This adapter is located on a MiniPCI card, together with a 3Com Modem (for which no Linux driver exists). This card is only supported on the following machines:
+
* A20m, A20p
+
* A21m, A21p, A21e
+
* T20, T21, T22, T23
+
* X20, X21
+
* TransNote
+
 
+
=== Intel 10/100 ===
+
Chipset: Various Intel Mobile Ethernet chips<br>
+
Driver: e100
+
 
+
The e100 driver is the suggested driver, but 'eepro100' should also work.<br>
+
On older ThinkPad's this is implemented on a MiniPCI card, on newer ThinkPad's this is integrated into the systemboard.
+
 
+
=== Intel 10/100/1000 ===
+
Driver: e1000
+
 
+
This chip is integrated into the systemboard.<br>
+
Note: This chip support Auto-MDX, meaning you will never need a crossover ethernet cable.
