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.

  • 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 Pro L10 - wireless network cards are compatible?

    I have now managed to dual boot my older Toshiba L10 with XP and Windows 7.

    The existing wireless LAN card is not compatible with the Windows 7 partition and I use an external usb wireless.

    Does anyone have recommendations on an internal wireless card I can buy which can replace the existing one and is both compatible with XP and Windows 7 32-bit? Is it easy to replace one card with another?


    Hardware upgrade on mobile machinery is very limited and most of the information you can get on an upgrade supported for RAM or HARD drive. Upgrade for all other hardware is not supported, so actually there is no info on the hardware compatibility.

    Nobody here can offer you a list with 100% compatible cards WLAN.
    What WLAN card is inside your old L10?
    Have you tried to install the drivers of Toshiba Portal Wlan WLAN -

    Download driver driver from here and install it. Maybe this will help you get the wireless network card is functioning properly.

  • 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.

  • Satellite Pro L10 - wireless network card is not detected in Win7


    I have a dual boot with XP and Win7 Pro.

    If I install the wireless driver from the download on XP site, no problem.

    I tried the same procedure using the download wireless driver on the partition Win7 using a) driver XP b) driver Vista & c) the Vista driver in compatibility mode. Nothing worked and it is even not a yellow exclamation in Device Manager, so the wireless card point don't has not recognized at all.

    Same problem with Ubuntu Linux.

    In XP, it is recognized as "INPROCOMM IPN2220 Wireless Lan Card".

    Any ideas?

    The entry in Device Manager is right and so must be included in Windows XP Home edition.
    This old model of laptop is not supported for Win7 and on the download section Toshiba WLAN I cant find driver for Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 WIRELESS network card.
    Googling around, I see many people have the same problem on different models of old laptops.

    Have you tried to find the driver Googling autour?

  • 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 A300D-11v - wireless network card does not work under Win XP

    I ve problem. I'm looking everywhere and I don t know what s happened.
    I installed XP and I ve problem with WLAN. Before I've used Vista and was ok :)
    I got the driver for RTL8187b of Conn = 5 & DownTypeID = 3 & GetDown = false & downloads = true #R TL8187B
    and I tried the official website of Toshiba.

    In Device Manager, everything is ok, but I can't connect.
    This n t work:
    "The wireless network card is Atheros and not Realtek! The LAN card is Realtek but not the wireless network card!
    The Atheros driver can be found here:

    Can someone write me step by step how this fix.

    Please help me and sorry for my English :)

    > Also may try to reinstall the drivers that appear in this web site, appear here the Atheros drivers your need of portable.

    Your computer laptop doesn t support card Atheros, but card Realtek WLan.

    > In Device Manager, everything is ok, but I can't connect.
    As you say the WLan card is recognized correctly, but you can't connect.

    I m do not know why, but you should check first if your WLan router uses the same standard WLan (802.11 A, B or G) as the WLan card.
    Check the settings!

    Then check if the right WLan encryption has been selected, check if the Mac address was not enabled, check if the firewall doesn t affect the WLan connectivity.

  • Satellite Pro L300-1FL - WLAN network adapter does not exist

    Model: Satellite Pro L300-1FL (PSLB9E)
    Operating system: XP Pro SP2
    Wireless card: PA3616u-1mpc (atheros AR5007)

    the laptop came with pre-installed vista, everything worked very well (including wireless), although a little slowly, but decided to downgrade to xp. integrated SATA drivers into my xp with nlite installation disc. XP installed fine. visited the toshiba support site and downloaded all the drivers for xp and install.

    Despite the installation of the wireless driver there is still no present in the wireless network card device driver. It is an "unknown" device listed, which I think is the wireless card.

    at first I was not sure what card appeared so systematically installed that all options of wlan of the toshiba download page [intel/atheros/realtek], none has worked. little more digging autour and discovery was a then reinstalled atheros atheros wlan client on the toshiba site. still did not work. found a update atheros ar5007 driver installed, still no joy.

    forward wireless switch is on [the orange light] and has been throughout the process. have you tried enabling / disabling fn + F8, which doesn't do anything.

    I think I read somewhere (having read much too many post on this over the last few days!) that update the BIOS to version 2.4 can solve the problem. However the version offered for my model by the toshiba page BIOS update is 2.1 (which I've updated when you install all drivers in xp) and I'm not that eager to update the BIOS to a version that is not supported by toshiba, because I have no idea how fix an incorrect BIOS prevents starting the computer.

    When you look at the BIOS option "wake we wireless" is grayed out and not selectable. There is no other network without wire/related parameters. This might infer that the BIOS does not recognize the card wireless for some reason any. whereas he should have before, I started to lose its time, as worked it fine under vista wireless. so I think that upgrading the BIOS might have broken, although I can't be sure that I've updated the BIOS until I realize that the without wire did not work under XP, so it could have been broken before the BIOS update. Does this sound plausible? also, I have no idea how if is take to solve this - you can downgrade the BIOS?

    any help greatly appreciated - have been pulling on my hair for 2 days now and there is only so much googling, you can do before find yourself you constantly re - visiting the same sites over and over again!

    Thank you

    worried that he may have been conflict for different drivers wlan I had initially installed, so have done a complete re - format and re-installation of xp. Install the drivers, including the wlan driver atheros. but still no adapter wlan in Device Manager.

    the unknown device in the other section of the Device Manager is listed as an ethernet controller; However glancing upward from the PCI/VEN # (C & DEV_001C 168) on the basis of data from the provider PCI identifies that this is indeed the atheros card.

    This means that it is not a hardware/BIOS problem as I previously suspected. XP can 'see' the device, but for some reason, the driver won't work. Hmm

    someone at - it had a similar problem? is it just a matter of finding the "correct" driver

    Thank you

  • My wireless network card does not work! (Computer HP laptop, 2000;) Win7 Home Premium 64-bit)

    All of a sudden out of no where my wireless network card screwed! I now use a straight-through Ethernet cable. I have no idea how to solve this problem! If it's just a software thing, then whatever, but I will have to consider to Best Buy or what?

    (1) did you check that you have not turned off accidentally any possible hardware switch?

    (2) have you checked that the correct drivers are installed?

    (to benefit other readers, this is a clean install after major problems from the use of registry cleaners and bad advice)

  • Qosmio X 500 - wireless network card is not recognized

    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem really frustrating with my WI - FI, the thing is that since this morning, my PC can't recognize his wireless network card and it isn't same state that there is a problem with her or anything, it's just like it never existed in the first place! Also the wireless light is still disabled, even if the switch is turned on, it all started this morning, my PC was in mode 'sleep', I lift the screen and the screen goes black with a loud beep and it restarts automatically, so no WI - FI more!

    I tried to restore about three days, but nothing has changed, so I tried to reinstall the driver wlan everywhere, but the installation does not start even, as if he says 'there is no card wlan here for a driver to install... "
    I'm sorry for the long 'report', but really, I'm out of my mind! Help, please!

    Can you please tell us more about status of WLAN card?
