  1. If there was only a manufacturer website where you can download drivers...

    Oh, wait, THERE TOTALLY IS: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-71124
  2. From here:
    http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-71124

    Scroll down until you see Realtek Ethernet drivers for Windows Vista.

    Always, always, always get device drivers from the manufacturer. Not some random source you found on google.
  3. Thank you for all your prompt replies. Tried the Realtek site, located download, but there is a fault, it would not download the ethernet driver for Vista - just lots of text came up instead of download. Please has anybody any suggestions where I go from here.

    Well, there are two posts linking to LENOVO'S site, did you try those?
  5. There are several options for the download from the Realtek site--did you try all of them? If you did, I would download/install a copy of 7zip, which should fix your "lots of text" issue.

    Go there from some other PC or laptop. Save it on a USB stick.
    Install from that.

    That depends on how your brwser settings are.
    Either it always save to teh same location 0 "Downloads"
    Or
    It asks you every time.

    Yours probably defaults to 'Downloads'.
    Go there, save the file
    Plug in your USB stick
    Copy whatever file it gives you to that USB
    Plug that USB into the target PC
    Run the file
