Satellite A300-2 TB-Ethernet network card problem

Hi all

I have a laptop Satellite A300-2 CT with Windows XP SP3 for a year. There is a problem in the network ethernet card, I think.

If I connect my computer to a wireless network, all right. However, if I connect the computer to a wired network via the ethernet card, problems begin.

A little later after the connection. 'something' is happening and my windows theme changes to "classic", plus none of the applications that uses the beginning of the soundcard NOT working. In addition, the system slows down a lot for all the one or two minutes. When I check running applications during the"slow", I see that deferred procedure calls takes a lot of time processor.

Problem does not end with this, after that I disconnect the ethernet connection and restart my computer, the application of the wireless (Atheros) adapter takes control of wireless connections, so I can not connect wireless networks I wanted. I have to restart the computer to resolve this problem.

I've updated the network ethernet card driver, nothing changes.

In conclusion, I think the network ethernet card has a problem and maybe it is in conflict with other hardware (such as the sound card).

Y at - it suggestions to solve this problem?

Thank you.

Hi alp37,

I have never heard of this issue, and I think all you can do is update the LAN and the audio driver. The two you can download from the official website of Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

If it doesn t work I think I think it is a software problem I would recommend reinstalling Windows Toshiba recovery disc. Who can restore the factory settings, and then you can test it again.

  • Satellite C660 - 2 7 - wireless network card problem or not?

    A couple of days, that I dropped my laptop maybe 3-5 inches above the ground and he hit the brick of charger with a small thunk. I have use it again until the next day and since then, internet connection has been patchy, at best, for the most part drops every 3-4 minutes (he always considers it is connected for awhile, but no page doesn't load and Skype shows no connection) and slow when you are connected.

    Running the tool to diagnose windows usually resets the wireless network adapter, also tells me reset the router and will often complain of DNS...connectivity/nameservers/something of this type, usually that they one after another, what is the problem is not really clear. This problem only occurs on the floor and everything seems fine down (the router is downstairs, but is not really further and is located next to the open staircase), but as it was only a few days, this could just be lucky and not relevant. Also the internet connection (ISP, BT terrible btw) has been terrible lately in general, have been on the phone to BT about it several times to complain with no improvement (because they have not done anything).

    Thus, it + pourrait + just to be the internet connection, I really only has not let down any high rise (it was a landslide while reaching to position it on the ground), he is poor at the moment and reset the router seems to have an effect, but does then reset the wireless network adapter (temporarily) and timing is a bit co accessory. I think that this is probably the Ondaaah just lost, but I'm not an expert or a techie and this is my first windows laptop to... Well, never! And I could be totally off. It is also been connected all the time that I was typing without problem, but I got it with the keyboard tilted up slightly to rest.

    Can anyone help? I don't want to get it looked at if nothing is wrong (especially if it's just BT once again, I'm about to give them up for another access provider), but I don't want to leave if it needs fixing and find it does any connect. Even a "Yes, it could be that" or "no, it won't be this" kind of reply would help ^^

    * Edit I ran the Toshiba assist, diagnostic tools and it passed all the tests by default, but he will try next time stops internet connection (probably soon)

    What is with the local network connection? Have you noticed similar problems link your laptop by using the LAN connection?

    Test it and send feedback.

    At least, you can install original recovery image and test the feature with the factory settings.

  • Ethernet network card does not show my Satellite L830 - 16H


    Ethernet network adapter do not show my Toshiba Satellite L830 - 16H, and it can not reset it

    What can you do to restore it?

    I thank everyone

    You can try to access the BIOS (turn the unit on and press F2) and set it to default and save the changes.
    Sometimes this help

    Otherwise, it can be device LAN card problem.
    The fix can be very expensive because such port is part of the motherboard.

    I think you can try using an optional USB LAN RJ45 Ethernet adapter

  • Satellite A300-15J: Vista x 64 Card reader driver problem


    I have a problem with the driver for my internal card on my laptop (Toshiba A300-15J) reader and I use Vista x 64 system.
    I am really lost, just tried to add, for almost every driver possibble to many other copanies, I'm looking for help here.

    If someone I also have this problem or have solved this problem, please give me a link or advice how to get this device works on Vista x 64.

    Kind regards



    Seems that the 64 bit Vista drivers are not available for this new series of Satellite A300-15J PSAJ4E.

    But as far as I know the laptop supports a digital media card reader that has been integrated into another series of small notebook common Multiple.
    So why you n t try some card reader controller driver Vista 64 bit published BLAH IE Satellite A210 or another series.

    I recommend you test some drivers

    Good luck

  • Satellite A300-10 s / wireless network hardware not installed


    Yesterday, I bought a Satellite A300-S10; everything works fine, except for wireless network equipment. When I go into Device Manager, I see 'controller Ethernet", with a yellow exclamation point listed under 'other devices '.

    I downloaded some drivers of your wireless download page. Problem is that I don't know what wireless hardware is inside this laptop, so I don't know which driver I excactly must download and install. I tried a few, but those who did not.

    OS: Windows Vista 32 bit.

    Can someone help me please?

    Thanks in advance,


    Hello Nicolas

    Just a question: has your laptop factory settings?
    With the settings everything must be properly installed.

    According to the specifications of the laptop your A300 should have the WIRE Intel 5100AGN wireless card.

    Please suggest me how to fix card reader?

    Thanks in advance.


    Hi smarjit1,

    Have you tried different SD cards or just this one SD card? The SD card is probably the problem, what do you think?

    In addition, I would like to try an update card reader driver. The most recent driver, you can download on the official website of Toshiba:

  • Network card problem


    I have a MacPro mid 2010, 2x2.66 GHz 6 core, 32 GB memory DDR3, nVidia GeForce GTX 760, disk SSD PCIE.

    It seems that I have the problem with the network card. At first, I noticed that control avid artist (a control unit for the music studios) lost connection randomly.

    After months of trying to figure out why this happened, Avid were certain that there was something wrong with my NIC card on my mac pro. It seems they are right, because I tested and I also noticed that when I am connected to a VPN, the VPN connection fell back randomly.

    I'm not sure if it's a hardware problem or not. I reinstalled it in OS X format from scratch. problem remains.

    Any ideas...?

    Thank you


    After you have reinstalled the OS X from scratch we can assume that it is indeed a hardware problem initially. Then there are things to try-

    • Try the other network on the Mac Pro (he has two)
    • Try a different network cable
    • Try a different network Jack

    If not, help above, then it may be the chip rather than the plug or cable, whereby cases that the chip is soldered to the logic board, you will need to seek a different network card. This could be a USB one or a PCIe one. See below for examples.

    There is a problem with the wifi adapter "wireless network connection Wireless LAN adapter:" the driver is corrupted or it is incorrectly configured.

    I would start by removing the current driver of sifi and install the latest driver available.

    The IP address for the above connection is

    This state it does not connect with the router.  Alternatively, you can try to restart the computer and the router at the same time.

  • Windows 8 wireless network card problem


    I have problems with my wireless adapter (Atheros AR5b93-already updated to the latest version of the driver). Often some time after I watch videos (offline). There will be delays in the video, and then all of a sudden the wireless network disconnects and shuts off even when my Acer wireless button is showing its active (orange led is lit). Usually I click on troubleshoot and it gives the network card and all goes well for a while then it happens again unless I close the video. Sometimes the adapter will be hidden and it will say my hardware is not found (CODE 12). What is going on?

    I have made yet. I made a few adjustments. I went to the network & sharing Center > change adapter settings > change the wifi settings and I have checked this box (LLDP Microsoft protocol pilot) and disabled my ethernet (I used never she and doubt if I ever will be) well. Hope this solves. Blue microwave THX! Will follow your advice if it does not work

  • Dell Dimension 8400-has had to replace hard drive... today no unrecognized ethernet network card

    This has probably happened to 1 million people, but I couldn't find a thread!  I had to replace the hard drive and of course install Windows XP.  Everything went well. Everything works except my internet cable.  I called my provider.  They say that the problem is my pc not their equipment.  I believe them because I can get internet through my wireless on my Dell laptop.  I can't do it on my desktop.  When I go to the command line and type ipconfig I get nothing.  My ethernet card is simply not acknowledged.  I missed a driver when I loaded windows?  When I go to Device Manager I see 1394 network card w / no error showing.  Help!  Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have! : bravohelen:

  • Satellite P10 - 221: "absent wireless network card."

    Hello world

    I had this problem: the wi - fi network card is not present in the list of hardware, the installation of the driver (both Toshiba tools and Utilities CD and downloaded drivers) still fails. In the case of Toshiba CD it says "DON'T NOT updated the driver, Installation failed", while in the case of the downloaded drivers, nothing happens when I choose "Install" from the context menu (click on right .inf). The problem is: the wi - fi card is completely absent, the operating system does not, it does not matter where.

    Someone at - it had the same problem or knows the solution?

    Thanks in advance,



    are you sure that you really have a wireless network card installed? Not all machines don't.
    Check the code under the machine. It is printed on a silver label and looks like this:

    This one is a 1 GHz Pentium 3 machine. Read your code and put it here and we can tell if it has a built in network RLR.

  • Satellite Pro A40: MinPCI wireless network card required

    Hi all

    I would like to put a wireless PCI card in my laptop but don't have a clue what I'm looking for.

    Please could someone help me with suggestions, links, recommendations, information or anything that could help me
    solve this problem

    Thank you


    One question; You have a Wlan switch on the side of laptops?
    If this isn't the case, then you can not upgrade this laptop with the network card wireless minPCI because you would not be able to activate the wireless card.

    I checked the internet for a few details and it seems the Wi - Fi is available and in my opinion not extensible too.

    I think that it s better to use an external USB WiFi key
