    Question OT: computer driver problem

    Hi guys:

    I have an IBM 8187G3U computer which has no installed network drivers.

    I downloaded the "IBM driver installer" and transferred it to the 8187G3U via memory key but it wants internet access in order to install the specific required drivers and of course, can not, due to the missing driver.

    Help appreciated.
    Mike

    FOR NEXT TIME


    if you look on the torrents sites ..there is a file called 50000 windows drivers or something or other....download it and put i on disc

    be careful some of the drivers on it will be picked up as viruses..but they aint .,..just the way the virus prog works .

    when you do the search for the driver point it at the disc and maybe it will find it .

    no more looking around .

    Why not get the drivers directly from IBM?

    Try here

    The IBM "driver" appears to be a web install which is really stupid since it is a network driver.

    You have to download a program called utorrent , or deluge or vuze

    you then have to configure the program ..through your firewall and so that it runs to your bandwidth expectations up and down

    Then pick your torrent file to download from only a couple of trusted sites like isohunt or demonoid, don't trust any other sites except the private members only sites....
    don't trust any of the sites that come up first in Evans google search..

    the file will then automatically download when you do the search on isohunt or demonoid and click on it

    Yes, I spent an hour finding that out.
    I finally got an IBM driver but had to make some guesses which seem to have turned out OK.
