Satellite Pro L40 - wireless adapter does not work - Vista

I recently had some problems with my laptop.
A couple of weeks, I put in a disc of OpenSuse.
It's not stable anything, but locked me out of my original Vista operating system.

I reinstallled Vista Home Basic, but there are a few problems.
Mainly, my wireless adapter does not work.

When I flip the button to turn it on nothing happens and it is not recognized in Windows.
I installed Atheros Driver, but still nothing happens, light is not yet.

Any advice?


First check the device-> network adapters area manager
You see the WLan card? Or the unknown device appears?

If there is an unknown device, then the WLan driver has not been installed correctly or you tried to install a driver badly these two options are possible.

Remember that your wireless network card? Maybe it was a Realtek WLan card?

If it's a Realtek WLan card, try the WLan driver from the Realtek website and look for 802.11 g (RTL8187B) chip or you will simply check the page of the European driver Toshiba too the Realtek WLan driver also appeared on the Toshiba page

  • Satellite Pro 4600 Wireless card does not work with WIN2K?

    I have a Satellite Pro 4600 with UK dealer PA3070U-1MPC wireless operating with Windows 2000 card

    The wireless client Manager detects the network from my wireless router and the signal is excellent and I see all the Green swhowing bars.

    But I can't mske a connection in 'connections' wireless says "network cable is disconnected.

    the router works well with other laptops in my house.

    I have the latest version of Win2K also downloaded and installed the latest versions of client manager and WLAN driver for win2k to the toshiba Web site.

    'Support of toshiba in Turkey' told me ' I need another driver for Win2K for my driver wireless card cause win2K on the toshiba site isn't for "thie" wireless card ". I have been waiting for this for 3 weeks now and couldn't join the UK level 3 elusive support who supposed to have this driver. I saw on the internet is the same wireless card was sold as an accessory "made by toshiba" and he said that it is compatible with Wim2K

    What I then please? It works with Win2K, is it "another driver" and so on?

    Thank you


    I don t think that there is something wrong with the driver because you can receive signals from router (green bars). If the driver WLan would be a mistake if wouldn t receive all signals.
    Please check device manager. If the wireless card is recognized if you are using the correct driver and the driver has been installed correctly.
    Please see this page:

    In my view, the message "network cable is disconnected" appears because your (NOT wireless) LAN cable is not connected. This post has nothing to do with the question of Wlan.
    You should check your WLan settings again.

  • Satellite Pro L500 - wireless button does not work

    I have problem with my wireless switch. Take a look at this [photo:]. It is said "bryterstatus: pa ' which is translated (badly) to" change status: on»

    Although, when I press Fn + F8, nothing happens. All the other 'random' shortcuts button + FN keyboard works well. In other words, I can not connect to my wireless. I know it works because I can connect with my iPhone. There is also nothing wrong with the connection, I tried Michael / active on and outside. Tried to restart my laptop. I even downloaded the new drivers. Nothing seems to work. How can I activate the switch?

    Best regards
    Miguel Rodrigues

    Hello Miguel

    Your laptop factory settings or you changed something?
    Have you installed the own operating system or laptop has always original operating system preinstalled?
    Wireless network adapter installed and listed correctly in the Device Manager?

    Use of WLAN is so simple, and by default, it should work correctly. The same principle is on all laptops from Toshiba even. When you want to use the WLAN you move WLAN switch in position ONE and use the FN + F8 key combination to activate the wireless network card. All that s.

    What you can try is to reinstall the additional package of value?

  • Satellite Pro L300 - wireless card does not work under Ubuntu

    Hi all,

    I want to know what is the model of my wireless card. I need to know because I need the driver of windows for Ubuntu. I see on the internet for the L300 series, we have a lot of wireless card... I want to know what is the card of my pc.

    Thanks a lot and best regards

    LOL: D you're funny type. Please don t do it harder they are.

    There are many opportunities to find out what card WLan has been inserted.

    The easiest way is to check the bottom of the unit.
    There are a lot of different labels and on one of the labels you should see a WLan card model or part number.
    Take this number it in the google search and google for this field.

  • Wireless adapter does not work.

    Original title: wireless

    I install win7 in my fujitsu siemens AMILO Li 1718 model system, all the drivers are installed but I have problem with my wireless, wireless is not see the amything all available wireless driver is installed courrently can someone help me solve this problem

    Hi Amy,

    It seems that your wireless adapter does not work.

    There is no Windows 7 drivers for your model. You can check this link for simple information.

    I suggest you to visit the above link and download Vista drivers for your wireless card. Install them in compatibility mode.

    Refer to this link: make sure to run older programs in this version of Windows.

    If the problem persists, I suggest you contact Fujitsu support:

    I hope this helps.

  • WUSB600N wireless adapter does not work if hooked up to Windows startup

    I have the adapter WUSB600N wireless, and I use it with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I use the latest available driver, When Windows first starts, the adapter does not work properly and is unable to connect to any network, regardless of how long wait. If I unplug it and plug it back after that Windows is already running, I don't have this problem. This does not work when the "reboot" of the machine; only when turning the power off and then on again.

    Do you have an error message when attempting to connect to the wireless network?

    Try to uninstall and reinstall the wireless card and see if that helps you.

  • RALink RT5390 wireless adapter does not work

    My g6 pavilion laptop wifi adapter was not properly work recently. my internet router and networking are works well as it should, but whenever I restart my laptop, repeat me that there is no link and no other wifi networks when there are clearly other networks because of my neighbors.

    I tried a system restore to solve the problem, but it has no effect and my norton affects the restoration of the system to disable the antivirus.

    I'm stuck on ideas to solve this problem and I don't know much about networking and internet stuff, so I'm pretty powerless here

    Here is a link to my features of laptops if necessary:

    These ralink adapters are simple ol ' sh * t. I don't know if it will be a complete solution for you, but I was pulling with my network card for months and this has proved to be the most effective for my computer. I have a HP Envy luck to be equipped with a Ralink RT3290, Windows 8.


    Out of the box, my computer was working fine and it connected to the network OK. As soon as I moved further away from the router, I known constant dropouts, and the connection always folds between the low signal strength, to completely disconnect the router, where I had to re - connect manually there. This question really frustrating. I use my computer on the top level of my house, and the router is in the basement. If I was getting sick of this fast. Update driver after update driver, no luck. After trying everything under the Sun, I decided I would bite the bullet and I tried something a little bit Orthodox...

    I just uninstalled the driver for my computer. Yes, really. When a component on your computer a driver is stripped, Windows software has a few drivers that will install by default for your material so that it can remain functional on your computer. So, once remove the driver ralink on my computer, windows installed sound driver by default for my network card and... Voila! My connection problems are virtually non-existent at this point. The material is not always the best, but at least I can surf the net in my room without my connection affected by constant stalling.

    Now, other that the light on the button stuck wireless with an orange glow and list my NIC as #10 Device Manager, I always use this driver with minimum questions. Occasionally, he'll forget the connection once I wake the laptop from sleep, but this issue has been much worse with the ralink drivers than without.

    If you are aware of the risk (what is low, to be realistic, this can always be undone and you can always reinstall drivers ralink so that deosn proved to be an effective solution), I will explain in detail how I managed to do.

    (1) open Device Manager (right click the lower left corner in windows 8 and a shortcut appears in the drop-down below)

    (2) find network adapters and display its contents

    (3) make a right click on your wireless network adapter (should be something similar to "Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n... ") and click on"Uninstall"in the menu drop-down

    (4) a popup should appear and you should be given the possibility to uninstall or cancel it. Make sure you check "suppression software driver for this device" until you go forward, or Windows re - install the ralink driver.

    -Search for new hardware if your network card is not detected after you have uninstalled it. Your card should appear as "802.11n Wireless LAN card"

    -If you have an installer driver ralink that is newer or equal to the driver that is already installed, you can run the Setup program to remove any driver software remains which is usually overlooked by the device during the uninstallation Manager there from your computer

    -As an option, you can check potential driver leftover files C:\Windows\System32\Drivers. It is important to search for remains that Device Manager / ralink Installer may have missed because it can potentially conflict with the replacement of windows WLAN driver. pilots should have a short name for your adapter (e.g. rt3298.sys); they shouldn't be hard to find. Be careful as well; IT IS WISE TO ALWAYS SAVE no matter WHAT DRIVER SOFTWARE, YOU CAN REMOVE in CASE YOU MAKE a MISTAKE.

    (5) re - enter your information network and you should be good to go!

    I hope that it is of no help to you. People who know nothing about what they will tell you to install the latest driver and yatta yatta yatta this way, because it does not work I had to take the liberty to try to find a solution for these adapters cursed myself. I hope this helps a bit your question!

  • Satellite Pro C650 - cooling fan does not work

    My Satellite Pro C650 overheats and stops automatically within 20 minutes of leaving upwards. I checked the CPU fan and noticed that it does not turn upward, even if the laptop would become very hot. I tested the fan with a 9 volt battery and it works perfectly.

    Can someone tell me exactly what the problem is? And how to solve it.

    Thank you.

    > Can someone tell me exactly what the problem is?
    On this virtual path, no one can say with certainty what the problem is. We can only speculate what may be the problem.
    Usually, cooling fan starts immediately after starting the laptop slows down and offers the optimum temperature of material. After reading your ad I didn t understand how it works. He turns and there is no sign of life?
    Problem can be power.
    Cooling fan will be controlled by sensors of temperature and activity depends on the temperature of the material but if your machine cooling fan does not work, I imagine that there is no electric power.

  • Re: Satellite Pro S500 - brightness adjustment does not work correctly

    On my Satellite Pro S500 (preinstalled Windows 7 64-bit) change the brightness by pressing FN - F6 or FN + F7 does not work. The other NF - f... combinations seem to work correctly.

    When I press FN - F6 (or F7) a control box to change the brightness to poster (as expected), but the level is still displayed as "1" independent of the current value (for example changed from Control Panel or with the eco utility) and it is not possible to change it with FN - F6 or F7. I just reinstalled vap and restarted the computer, but nothing has changed.

    Hi asdf.

    I put t know what s wrong exactly but normally the FN keys are associated with value added Package, but you wrote that you already reinstalled

    In my opinion, you should try a system restore to an earlier point. Maybe something messed up the registry, you can start System Restore in Windows Advanced Boot menu.

  • HP dv6-6c10us: HP dv6-6c10us Broadcom 802.11n wireless adapter does not work after windows 10 installed

    I have a laptop HP dv6-6c10us with a Broadcom 802.11n wireless adapter.  It worked fine on Win 7.  When I upgraded to win 10, it has stopped working.  The driver has not been updated since 06/02/13.

    Until the driver is updated by Broadcom or HP, this computer is now a desktop computer.

    Any suggestions on how to get the adapter wireless on Windows 10?

    I recommend you to go back and do a system restore to a point before started to install the automatic updates, and where worked the wireless.

    Then download this tool that stops updates to install automatically.

    Hide all of them and then install one by one until you find the one that is to destroy the wireless connection.

    When you have found the culprit just hide it again and it will not be installed.

    You can create a system restore point each time you install an update.

    Tedious, but you should get where you want to be.
