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

Good bye

    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 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.

    Hello Michi

    It is not easy to give you accurate information, but if your laptop is the Intel Centrino mobile technology you can use of LAN Mini PCI Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG adapter. I have the same WLAN card and can use WPA and 54mbits data transfer speed.

    If you want to be sure, try contacting the Service of your country partner. They should know this for sure.

  • 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.

    I can't get my Toshiba Tecra 9000 to work with the Agere wireless Mini-PCI card.
    The Wifi card is 100% working since I've tested in Tecra 9000 my friend.
    The drivers are properly installed.

    But when I switch the equipment on the side of books, the led remains dark. In addition, Agere MiniPCI Wlan Card is not displayed in the XP Control Panel.

    All solutions?

    I've got some hard get my WiFi integrated to work. I can't seem to find a driver for it anywhere (to install even the damn thing) and I can't seem to find anywhere in the BIOS that will allow me to "enable" it.

    I spent it to 'On' but still no luck. Could someone help?

    Thanks in advance,


    I assume that the laptop has been delivered without any WiFi card and you have installed the minPCI wireless network card. Am I wrong?
    Well, first of all, how did you install the wireless network adapter?
    As far as I know there are Brown and white 2 cables. The white goes to the hand and Brown to auxiliary voltage
    Then Device Manager should recognize the device is an additional device. I put t know what WLan card you use, but the drivers compatible, you should find on the Wlan card manufacturers website.

    On the left side for laptop, you'll find a Wlan antenna switch. This switch must be turned on (LIT) If you want to use the Wlan

  • 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

    Good bye

  • Problems installing Satellite Pro 4600 wireless network card

    I have a Satellite pro 4600 since 2002. I've never been checked his internal wireless network card. Today I'm trying to use it, but I am unable to even install it.

    (2) there is not any link showing option wirless card I can update and install the Device Manager.

    (3) I have dual boot windows 2000 and xp. In the two I tried to install the driver of his CD moose. But there was no requirement for the office and even in network and Device Manager.

    Please give me an urgent response.

The text of presentation for the Satellite Pro 4600 says 'model of communication center Mobile with wireless built-in on all IntelĀ® PentiumĀ® III, LAN module card integrated 10/100 Ethernet NETWORK and international integrated V.90 data/fax modem'. Mine is a model of the Pentium III. Operating system is W2K fully patched.

  • Re: Satellite A40 - can I get a wireless network card?

    Anyone know if I can get a wireless card for the A40 Satellite?

    Thank you

    Hi calibra,

    Before you buy a wireless network card, you should check if your laptop is already equipped with WLAN antennas. The antennas are installed as part of the screen and are necessary for the wireless network adapter. If you n t have it your WLAN card will find not all networks.

    By the why: you can get a compatible WLAN card to an authorized service provider. Do you know how to contact the guys?
