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.

  • 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 P15-8409, Atheros wireless network adapter problem

    Hello. I'm having a frustrating problem with an old laptop Satellite P15. I restored the phone to default settings using the recovery disk that the system was working very badly. After that, the wireless network adapter has stopped working. In the Device Manager "Atheros AR5001X + Wireless Network Adapter" is marked with a yellow exclamation point. In the menu properties, under general, the State of the device the following is listed:

    The device cannot find enough free resources that it can use (code 12)

    The operating system is Windows XP Home Edition. The same problem has been present in SP1, SP2 and SP3. I also updated the BIOS to V2, but it also did not help.

    At work, we use a wireless internet connection. At home, I have a DSL connection. Curiously, when I plugged the network cable to the House, the yellow exclamation mark disappeared and a wireless connection icon appeared in the network connections window. I assumed that the problem has been resolved by updating to Windows; However when I brought the computer in the office, the wireless adapter was once more in the State I described.

    I searched the internet for the same problem, but was unable to find anything. I would be very happy to help.

    all the best,


    BIOS version is installed on your machine? And you have you recently changed some hardware etc...?

    I don't know what it could be, but in the worst cases, the wlan card has certain shortcomings. You can check this by getting somewhere such an atheros wlan card or intel and install it instead of the one installed.

    Maybe the exchange of cards should solve this problem?

  • 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 - update Intel HD graphics card problem


    Sorry for my level of English, I'm French

    I have a problem without a solution with my Satellite C660 (for the moment, I hope!) I downloaded the software google sketchup 8, dedicated to the development of architecture, but it does not work, I still got a bug message advising that it is necessary to update the graphics card drivers (according to google support it seems that OPENGL functions must be implemented in the drivers of my laptop)

    So I downloaded the latest drivers available for the configuration I have (Intel HD graphics for pentium, 64-bit windows 7).

    the link (french site, that Intel is not currently available, it is a document of .exe)

    I tried to update manually driver graphics card with Device Manager menu (graphics card > update drivers button > file.exe manual selection), but in the end, there is no update, I did that a very small message advising that windows has determined that the pilots are already updated.

    In fact there is no change on the drivers (always the same date of the 2010-07-28 drivers in the properties of the graphics card) and sketchup is still unemployed

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance


    What C660-xxx you have exactly?

    If you have an Intel graphics card, you must download the driver directly on the Intel site.
    There you should find the last version of driver

  • 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

  • Satellite C660 - 1 MM-wireless network adapter is very slow


    I bought a Satellite C660 - 1 MM and I have 2 problems.

    The first is that there is no C660 notebook - 1 MM on Toshiba sites, but I could find drivers with the PSC1NE thing.

    The biggest problem is that the card WIFI (atheros) is very low (or slow). I read that someone has the same problem, but a BIOS update solved this problem. My BIOS version is 1.00 (released in 2010), and I guess that perhaps this cause the WLAN problem. I tried to update the BIOS, but the Toshiba site, the latest version of BIOS of PSC1NE is 1.00: o

    So now I don't know what to do. I think that it would not be a good idea to update the BIOS with another version of the C660 series but now I can't connect to internet :(

    Please help me someone! Thank you for advice!


    On Toshiba page you can only download BIOS version 1.00 and I don t think that there is a BIOS problem. Otherwise Toshiba unlock a new update for the series PSC1NE so Don t worry.

    In your case, I'll try an update of the WLAN driver. You can download the latest WLAN driver on Toshiba WLAN Portal:

    Here in the forum I found some discussions on the issues C660 and WLAN, WLAN driver update worked :)

  • Wireless network card problem code 13

    I had trouble with my network using wireless for the past weeks. When I went to see what was wrong with my wireless adapter, it was no problem, but the 6to4 card and adapters itap had an error 13 code. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but my wireless still doesn't work.

    Read the above on 6 to 4 adapter problems.


    ·                        ISATAP adapter:



    On a Windows Vista-based computer or on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, the Microsoft ISATAP map appears with a yellow exclamation mark next to it in Device Manager, and you also receive an error message

    Windows cannot load driver (Code 31)

    You can ignore this error message. This error message does not indicate a problem with the adapter. The adapter will continue to function correctly.


    For wireless problems:

    Check that the wireless switch, if there is one in the laptop is turned on;

    Go to the website of the manufacturer of your router > make sure you have the latest Firmware in Vista for it.

    Go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > look for it last network adapters Vista drivers > download/install the.

    Troubleshoot network adapter problems to Microsoft link above.

    Try without commitment TCP/IPv6:

    If you still have internet connection probs, one thing to try is the separation of the TCP/IPv6 (which is done by going to network connection > right click > properties > it uncheck > OK.)

    See you soon.

  • G62-233NR wireless network card problems

    Okay, so I tried to do a little research, but I'm not sure I found my problem or a solution.  I have laptop HP G62-233NR and it worked fine up until tonight.  He won't have a wired or wireless connection to the internet.  The troubleshooting tool Windows says there is a problem with my adapter wireless and wired.  I have the Realtek RTL819SE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter and under my connection to the local network, it says the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller.  Now, I tried to download the latest drivers on my desktop and install via USB key, but even after that I have do always run into the same problem.  So I have two questions, is any way to fix this and if it requires one or more network cards new that it would be better that I can get which is compatible with my laptop?  Thanks in advance!


    I doubt the two cards that jump on you at the same time, but who knows...

    You can install one of the cards in your maintenance manual with the part number of HP wireless. The wired adapter is part of the motherboard and cannot be replaced individually.

    While I don't have a definitive answer for you, I suspect some sort of software problem.

    It may be worth it to you to back up your files and perform a system recovery and see if that solves the problem before the purchase of new equipment.


  • 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

  • Satellite Pro A10 - no wireless network card are not not in Device Manager

    Can you help me - Toshiba Satellite Pro A10
    Model no PSA15E-01PFQ-FR
    Series No Y3602494G
    Windows XP Pro

    On the front of this laptop is a wireless switch - this switch is set on, Windows XP Pro can't find any wireless device - Windows Device Manager shows not all adater wireless. You can advice please - what do I need to install driver - this laptop supports wireless?

    Thank you very much



    Usually, if you have a laptop wireless switch should have a wireless LAN card too. In your case I would try to install the driver. Then the WLAn card should appear correctly in Device Manager: > support & downloads > download drivers

    If that doesn t work, you can try a BIOS update.

    Are you running the factory settings or you have installed your own version of Windows?

  • Satellite P100-429 - new wireless network card does not work


    I just upgraded my home network to the draft of the standard "n" and thought that I would upgrade my wireless card on my laptop P100-429;
    Laptop is under Vista Home Premium and has the latest version of BIOS and drivers installed.

    Laptop currently has an equipped Intel 3945ABG card that works very well. I bought an Intel 4965AGN card but when I enter it, the powers of computer to top, but wont load (lights, fan-nothing else)

    Okay - so I read on some forums, could be a bad card, so I bought a brand Toshiba 4965AGN card - P/N G86C0002P710
    Still having the same problem - the computer refuses to start. Intel technical support say the card should work?
    Obviously is a compatibility problem - what can I do about it?

    Or did someone knows what kind of card I should use?

    Thanks for your help!

    I m not a Satellite P100 owner but is your laptop equipped with 3 antennas or only 2?
    If your laptop has only 2 antennas t, you can pass it to N project because this WiFi standard needs of 3 antennas.

    I think that your laptop has only 2 antennas, so that would be the reason why the two cards are not compatible to your laptop.

  • Aspire 4730Z wireless network card problem

    My internet connection suddenly stopped wireless adapter. He pointed out that my wireless router cannot connect to the internet. However, I know this isn't the case since all my other devices connect via the same router. The same thing happens when I plug into the ethernet cable.

    Sometimes, he says that the IP configuration is wrong on the router. I wonder if something happened to the Aspire that it prevents to read the IP configuration, and the error message is an error of interpretation of this problem.

    I would discuss with support on this point, but my series/snid number rubbed on the label, and I don't know what it is.

    I had already tried these suggestions. Here's what worked - I downloaded and installed version 8.1 of Windows driver for the card. So far, Microsoft update he crushed once more, but now that I have the installation of the adapter installed on my desktop, it's easy to put the old one back. Apparently 10 Windows is not stable drivers for all Broadco / Atheros adapters again. It's the wrong Microsoft adapter driver in Windows update that caused the problem. To fix it, visit the website of your computer manufacturer and download and install version 8.1 of Windows.
