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 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

    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 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 - 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?
    >... but will try next time stops internet connection (probably soon)
    Test it and send feedback.

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

  • 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.

  • Satellite P10 804 upgrading wireless card


    Ive been trying to find a list of compatible wireless cards to upgrade my Satellite P10 804 but can't find.

    The wireless card is a Toshiba PA3171U-1MPC, but it does not have the standard 802.11 G and no WPA security.

    Anyone know of the good cards replacement that will work on my laptop?

    Ive met this one but I'm not sure if it's compatible or not because I can't find any compatibility for it info: PA3416U-1MPC

    I think that the PA3416U-1MPC should be compatible.
    I mean the laptop supports wireless Mini-PCI network card and PA3416U-1MPC is a Mini-PCI wireless network card.

    The WLan antenna behind the screen of the laptop computers must be connected to the connectors on the wireless Mini-PCI network card.
    Both connectors are identified with MAIN and auxiliary normally a white cable goes to the ESSENTIAL and a black at the entrance to THE

  • Satellite Pro A40 fell on the wireless network card; Damaged PCMCIA slot

    This morning my Satellite Pro A40 (Celeron 2.6) fell 40 cm. He fell right on the wireless network card that has been inserted. This card is still alive and so is the rest of the laptop, but the PCMCIA location is little damaged. I can insert PC cards almost completely, just the last piece (when the pins are) wrong.

    I removed the cover near the CPU, and there, I could see the inside PCMCIA slot; I could see the main part and the last part where the pins are. That little part as is pushed upward, as you can see in the pictures.

    I think I'd be able to fix myself this PCMCIA slot, but I can't remove it. I removed all the screws on the rear plate, but he is still blocked.


    PCMCIA slot

    The PCMCIA location; on the left, you will see the part with the pins, which is pushed upward. It's also what I see when I look at the pins in the PCMCIA slot. as they are pushed down, but I don't think they are folded.

    Wireless network card

    Wireless network card; It is a little damaged but it still works.

    Does anyone have an idea how I can remove the back plate, or another way to remove the PCMCIA slot and fix it?

    Hi Steve

    Well, I can give t well you not answer how you can just remove the PCMCIA slot.
    There are a lot of screws and to my knowledge, it is necessary to remove all covers and screws that are placed at the bottom of the unit and inside under the keyboard.
    Please check this specific device. Perhaps you have overlooked a few screws.

    But if it is impossible to remove the PCMCIA slot of the unit, I recommend to ask the service partner for a detailed instruction.

    Good luck

  • Satellite A30 - what wireless network cards are supported?

    Have a computer Satellite A30 laptop-404, I wonder what kind of card Mini-PCI Wireless would be compatible with my PC?

    Found this one for example.


    Anyone who knows what other types could be used?


    Hmm, well I've never heard of Gigabyte WLAN cards and I don't know laptops that are equipped with these cards.

    I checked Toshiba Web site and some Satellite A30 models shipped with a card Atheros and Intel WLAN. So, I recommend buying a those manufactures wireless network card.
    For example Wireless LAN Mini PCI card (2, 4 GHz, 802 11 b) PA3212U-3MPC should be compatible.

  • Can satellite M65-S9092 - I put the wireless network card?


    Can I put my card Intel pro 2200BG on Satellite M65-S9092 wireless network so that it is no longer compatible with Windows 7? The Intel Pro 2200BG is no longer supported by Intel as it was abandoned and so they have not issued a new driver so that IPv6 works.

    So I would update my card if possible.

    Thanks in adavnce



    I think that it shouldn't be a problem to upgrade the WLan card.
    As far as I know its a card wireless network of miiPCI and you would need to also use a WLan card which would support the miniPCI interface.

    The wireless network card supports two pins for the WLan antenna cable.
    Usually, you must connect a white cable to the HAND and a black to the auxiliary voltage

    Seems you can use different network card that supports the 802.11 wireless standards B.
    I discovered that you can use the reference number of the wireless LAN card Kit: * PA3212U-1MPC *.
    You can google using the part number to find the compatible wireless network card and some dealers who offer this part.
