Advice of A20 103D Mini PCI Wireless Installation of satellite map

Some basic tips on installing a Toshiba PA3300U-1MPC card can be appreciated. The manual States that the card must be installed by a qualified engineer. The main request is where can I connect the wires black and white to. will I need to download a driver or will the device automatically recognized? Are there other issues to be aware of?

Thank you


Hello Wally

As far as I know there are two connectors that are marked with the HAND and to THE.
In this case, please connect the white cable to the HAND and the black cable to the auxiliary voltage
Additionally, you have the drivers and Utilities CD Utility & Tools, or you can download it on the Toshiba site. To my knowledge, the PA3300U-1MPC is an Atheros WiFi card.
Therefore, you need Atheros AR5001X Mini PCI Wireless Network Adapter V2.1.2.16 and Atheros Client Utility V2.1.2.16

Good bye

  • Need advice for the purchase of a mini PCI Wireless


    I have a laptop Toshiba I bought nearly two years ago. This laptop has an Intel 2200BG wireless chipset, which works, but the quality of connection is quite low. Sometimes, the connection speed climbs, sometimes it falls in total. I tried all the updates driver, power management tips and everything that could be found on the net. Some of these help, but there is always something that doesn't work as it should.

    Long story short, I decided to buy a mini pci wireless card. The problem is that these cards are nowhere to find. There is nothing on the Toshiba site, and apart from a few offers on eBay, there is almost nothing to choose. I know there are other options, but I prefer a mini pci card.

    Can someone help me on this issue?

    Thank you


    Hi Peter

    Can you please tell us which laptop model you have?

    In any case, the network without WIRE Intel 2200BG card is good enough and works very well on my Satellite M70 (with the latest driver). Download speed is very good and I do not need a wireless network card. I don't know what is the problem with WLAN connection in your case, but please try to test with another router WLAN (maybe your friends have all other routers). Also, install the latest WLAN driver for this card.

  • Mini-pci wireless, RAM & CPU upgrade on S1000-z2


    I got my S1000-z2 again and finally decided to update it. Unfortunately there is very little technical info on the toshiba site / google, I'm looking for a little help:

    1. I believe this model has an empty mini-pci port. Is that correct, and can it be used for a wireless card.

    2. any body confirm the max ram installable cany? I've seen reports of 512 MB and 1 GB. As it's using an old bios (phoneix 2.10), I guess that 512 is correct. If anyone can confirm this?

    3. I guess that the CPU is not extensible?

    Thank you



    I know this machine and the only information I can give you is:

    1 it s not extensible, because the mini-pci slot is just for technicians and their weird testtools

    2. the maximum capacity of RAM is 1 GB

    3. No, it s not.

    I receive this information, due to an "information tour" with a helpdesk phone-guy tosh because I got the same target as you. :)

  • Install the Mini PCI wireless network card. Need help!

    I have laptop Toshiba 5200-701 which is upgradble of wireless network, so I bought the mini PCI card Philips wireless brand. The reference is PH12127-E/PH11107-E and support 802.11a/b/g network address MAC 00 4F 05 43 88 F4.
    When I inserted the card in the laptop it shows new hardware found and then I downloaded website IBM software since I was told that this card is basically designed for laptop IBM, however, my laptop is unable to install the software and still facing problem... so please could someone help.
    Thank you very much.

    Moral salvation

    Well, in my opinion, you bought a bad wireless card. I don t think that your game can works with your device. Before you buy some hardware components, you need to check the compatibility of these parts. Toshiba service partners always have information about the units on the right. However, I found a wireless card that is compatible with your laptop. It's a PA3212U-1MPC.

  • Satellite P300-23F-mini-PCI Wireless card Replace?

    Question: would it be possible to replace the card of wireless mini-PCI Intel 5100AGN with version 4965AGN or 5300AGN?

    The thing is, recently I bought the Satellite P300-23F. Great laptop. Apart from one thing. I use the Intel 5100AGN wireless. Type of damage, the rest of the components used to build this laptop are high-end. I would have liked to see the 5300AGN of even the old 4965AGN adapter instead. These are both a bit more expensive, but still on the market for the price difference is a simple slice of $20. The 5100AGN TX is only 150 Mbit, which is half as fast as the two other Intel wireless modules. In general, a lot of people seem to have problems with the 5100AGN, seems to be a troublesome product altogether.

    Performance of the real world of the 5100AGN on a Linksys WRT54G is around 15 Mbps (1, 8 MB/s). My other computer laptop, equipped with a 4965AGN will be double that in the same circumstances. Tried all the drivers I could find, but the above values are the best I can get.


    I think that this should be possible, but you must use Mini-PCI cards.

    A white cable normally goes to the HAND and a black to the auxiliary voltage


  • Startup gets "Network cable unplugged" on mini-PCI Wireless card

    I recently installed a Netgear DG834GT wireless router and now have intermittent problems connecting my Tecra 9100. If the 9100 has been off for awhile (like overnight), when I restart I get always "Network cable unplugged" for the wireless connection. Reboot several times (anything from 3 upwards) I finally get connected to the router and everything then works fine for hours. Even a quick restart at this point (that is, once that the wireless adapter is connected) does not cause a problem, but as soon as I leave the stop of the machine during a time he fails again on restart.

    There are no errors in the event log.

    I am using wireless mini-PCI cards and have already updated to the latest version of the driver.

    Any ideas gratefully received, for now every morning is a 20 to 30 minutes of rebooting frustration trying to get my connection work.

    (Running Win2K professional)


    As far as I know, the unplugged network cable message just for LAN (Local Area connection-LAN) and not wireless.

    If you want to check this map to disable LAN in Device Manager. After starting the laptop turn on the wireless card, check the status using the FN + F8 key combination. Wi - Fi is activated after a short time, you should be able to use your wireless network.

    You can enable the option Show icon in notification area when connected. You can find it in the properties of wireless under the general tab.

  • Mini-PCI I have a Satellite A60-302 - myth or reality?


    I have a Satellite A60-302 (PSA60E-00J030HU) and theoretically there is no MiniPCI slot in the computer (at least it does not mention the Hungarian manual), but the online manual (preinstalled on your laptop) refers to a cover on the bottom as "Cover WLAN", that material incidentally doesn't not part of this model. (And the part of the motherboard under this coverage is not something that resembles a slot MiniPCI, well that according to the English manual and specifications online to some Toshiba Page, I found in the Linux knowledge base, it must be part of this config.)
    Allright, there is no MiniPCI, I said, I should buy a PCMCIA CardBus WiFi adapter. I thought I'll check on the toshiba online store, to be sure, I'm buying quality products. But when I choose 'Specific product Options' and choose my config, the Bank's research concludes _only_ MiniPCI solutions for my laptop, which theoretically (and physically) does not support.
    Is it not a bit strange? :)

    beginning of the "742" series machine was delivered with Wifi (Build-in).

    But even if a Mini PCI card would fit in your Machine, the problem is that you have no generation of antenna in.

    These are normally inside the display cover.

    So the best way is to buy a Wifi USB key. His fabulous work but not manufactured by Toshiba.

    Running perfectly with my A60-102...

    I downloaded the latest drivers. I don't know what utility software that I use. I tried another mini card and it worked well. (INTEL) What should I do then or try?

    Sorry, but I must ask you something: Why use card Atheros if Intel is working well?

  • Satellite T130-17F - upgrade to the Mini-PCI Wireless card

    Card WiFi in Satellite T130-17F doesn't support the 802. 11A / 5 GHz. I would like to replace it with one that is supported. Is this possible? If so, are there any documents that show how do?

    Thanks in advance, Igor Bukanov

    Hi mate

    Usually the laptop supports WLan miniPCI module. This means that usually the other WLan miniPCI cards should work, but I read also here in the forum that it is not always the case and sometimes other WLan miniPCI card would not me recognized correctly.

    But why you try n t a simple solution like a USB WLan stick?
    It is the simpler and in my opinion the best solution for you.
    You will not need to disassemble the laptop. This means that there is no risk of damage and the warranty

    That's why I recommend you try this solution.

  • How to install mini-pci in 1955-S805 wireless card?

    I am installing a new mini-pci wireless card in my Satellite 1955-S805. I was able to lift and remove the black band brilliant above the keyboard and unscrew the two screws holding the key on the keyboard. But under the keyboard is silver metal. It doesn't seem to be a way to go beyond that. Everything I read seems to say that the mini-pci card under the keyboard.

    Anyone know how to install a mini-pci card in these books of 1955-S805? Or does anyone have a manual on this model?

    Thank you

    Hi Pat

    I don't know, but you have an American model. I have laptop 1900-703. This is a European model, and I had no problem to install the mini-pci wireless card.

    Your device also has a wireless keyboard. Am I wrong?

    If you want a built in wireless card, you must remove the laptop keyboard using keyboard left and right of your unit releases. After that, you can see small cover on the place of the keyboard and this cover are fixed with a screw. This small undercover he has wireless card slot.
