WLAN on Tecra 9100 - LED should go orange if the s/w keyboard shortcut NOT installed?

I bought a Tecra 9100 that had been restored to XP SP1 and without good Toshiba utilities that most drivers seemed to be OK - for example screen OK but USB has been 1.1 until I added the Intel Chipset drivers.

I can't get the WLAN card to work by sliding the switch (close microphone) - also, it does NOT appear in Device Manager. I spotted a post below (which was locked) where Pedro said WiFi hotkey software must be installed to make it work. Two questions:

1 if the s/w keyboard shortcut IS NOT installed should always be able to mount the light Orange / appear in Device Manager
2. is there an alternate download site because I tried 20 times in the last 15 hours at: http://support.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-files2/0/cmod-en-20070925121500.zip (for the common modules) and the site just seems to be 'dead' - nothing is received at all

Thank you very much in advance - I want to become a happy member of Tosh' club... Cheers, Brian R.

PS; The Tecra has a WiFi tag on the bottom and even a MAC address and I have not yet looked for nothing changed so much material.

Pedro post follows:
+ Hello +.

+ Is the map original WLAN or you have upgraded on your own? What is with Device Manager, this is the card of wireless network which are listed there? +

+ For the use of WLAN, there are few requirements: +.
+ WLAN switch must not be broken or defective.
+ Wireless network card must be compatible one.
+ The WLAN antenna must be connected correctly.
+ Wireless network card must be installed properly (the right driver must be installed) +.
+ Wireless network card must be enabled in the Device Manager.
+ Wireless network card must be activated using the FN + F8 key combination (Wireless Hotkey V2.0.0.1 must be preinstalled) +.

(1) first you should check if there is a yellow exclamation (unknown device) in device under network adapter Manager.
If you find any unknown devices in the network adapter section then your laptop was not equipped with WLan minPCI card!
The shortcut key has nothing to do with the WLan card status in Device Manager! The keyboard shortcut software only controls the function FN + F8.

(2) don t know what you mean! The functions of link!

  • 54 MBit WLAN for Tecra 9100?

    is there a module to replace the stock module W - LAN in the Tecra 9100 to get 54 MBit?

    I often copy large amounts of digital photos on the network, so the 11 MBit nerves really me


    I guess you need a WLan card with a 802.11 G standard.
    I don't know if you can use a network card local minPCI 802.11 G as far as I know the laptop was configured with a and B standard.
    You can ask the Toshiba service partner in your country if there is a compatible Wlan G card and supported for this device.
    If this isn't the case, then you can also use a key USB Wlan with 802. 11 G.

  • Tecra 9100 - BIOS block 1 damaged and the update of the BIOS?


    I have an old Tecra 9100 with years of quality service, and it is my first problem, but is a great, after a forced restart the display shows the message BIOS 1 damaged block. I tried to fix the BIOS upgrade to the latest version I found, the 1.6 one, but it is a version of Windows (to upgrade a Toshiba computer I think) and when I try to run it in another computer to generate a floppy and upgrade the BIOS drive, I can't, because a common message from modules of Toshiba.

    Its there any floppy BIOS image - archive I can download to perform the BIOS update the BIOS?

    Thanks in advance.


    All you can find is stuff on the Toshiba support page. I don't know where you live, but try to contact nearest Toshiba authorized maintainer.
    They have access to the database of Toshiba and they can get it for you. Call and ask for help. I'm sure they will help you fix this BIOS.

  • Tecra 9100: Accupoint skids permanently mouse to the side

    Hey guys!

    I have a Toshiba Tecra 9100 with a built-in mouse AccuPoint, I never really liked.
    So I plugged in a USB-mouse standart for using Windows XP.
    But whenever Windows is running, my mousepointer is drifting sideways. If I klick anywhere, I must, with one hand, difficulty the Accupoint for the opposite direction of where my pointer is moving and with the other hand using my 'normal' USB mouse

    I received the new Service-Packs of XP, latest Version of BIOS and tried to say the Toshiba control center to disable the AccuPoint by "auto". But he always arises when I touch it.

    I don't know what the problem is. Is it possible to completely disable this AccuPoint? Or do you have other ideas what this could be?

    Thank you very much!


    If you use an external mouse I recommend you to disable the mouse on your Tecra AccuPoint. I had similar problem on my Tecra M1. I also disabled AccuPoint-mouse and touchpad.

    Now, I can work without this very annoying problem.

  • Should I wait for the release of FF 4 to install on my new laptop?

    I have a 3.x version of FF on my "old" laptop, but I bought a new laptop a couple of weeks and you want to install FF4 on it. Q: should I wait until the complete liberation of 4 FF to install on the new machine, or it would be 'better' download FF 3.x first?

    Personally I use the version release candidate of Firefox 4.

    Firefox 4 release candidate now will become the official version of Firefox 4 providing that no bugs are found which forces a new version should be created. If there is a second release candidate, those who use the first release candidate will automatically be updated to the latest version. It is still subject to quality assurance testing, but so far no showstopper bugs were found.

    Why you n t try to reconfigure the touchpad settings.
    Have you checked the settings in Control Panel-> mouse control?
    There should be an option and some touchpad properties that could be changed.

  • Tecra A11 PTSEOU: Some keyboard keys not working not


    In my Toshiba Tecra A11 PTSEOU - 08904L model, some of the keys on keyboard did not, initially, key 6 did not work. But now about 12 keys did not work.

    When I press one of these keys, I hear a single beep and nothing happens.
    Even I can't see the bios menu when you start the computer as "press f2 for boot menu".

    Is there something to do with the bios for this problem?
    I tried updating the bios, but the installation failed saying incompatible bios. Help, please

    Thank you

    > Is there something to do with the bios for this problem?
    I assume that the problem of its equipment and you will have to replace the internal keyboard.

    Just to confirm the problem with keyboard: you can connect external USB keyboard.
    In case the external keyboard would work correctly, the problem is related to the internal keyboard.

  • Customer password-Toshiba Tecra 9100 Setup


    I have an old Tecra 9100 and I need to access the configuration, I wrote to Toshiba Spain provide data on my computer and from there I was forwarded to a different email client and atencionn the truth is that, after nearly two months now, however, no one has contacted me!

    On the page to access this forum is reported that if the user is logged on the Club, among other things, will receive the password if necessary.

    I am really very disappointed with the service that it provides to its customers and Toshiba but I am about to buy a new one, I have serious doubts have emerged whether he should opt for a Toshiba.

    If anyone can help me write in Spanish, my post is [email protected] address



    Hello Siegen

    I am very interested to understand your problem and try to help but I really didn t understand your problem. Of course, my English isn't the best, but I hope you can clearly explain what you want to know about this old notebook.

    BIOS password has this oldie and now, you don't have access to it now?
    Is your laptop or you bought one?
    Here you can ask what you want and I'm sure that you can chat with other owners of Toshiba laptops on your problems.

    I have two of them and I am very satisfied. Support and customer service are on the high level. So I'm really interested about your problem and the reasons why you think that the service is not good for you.
    I mean, for each question, there must be a logical explanation.

    I am quite often here and you want to discuss with other people. If the last comment on the propaganda is somewhat strange to me.

  • Hi speed USB via a Port Replicator advanced for a Tecra 9100?

    I have the same problem with a Tecra 9100 and upgrade to hi speed USB as a previous post where the proposed solution was to use a PCMCIA card.

    (see link: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=24103)

    I had an idea, but I don't know if it will work and need some advice?

    Can you buy an Advanced Port Replicator that has Hi Speed USB 2.0 ports on it (like the PA3082U APR II that works with the Tecra 9100) instead of the PCMCIA card.

    If the docks of Port Replicator in the motherboard will it give you Hi Speed USB 2.0, or is the Tecra 9100 forced to USB 1.1 via hardware in the laptop itself and the Replicator will not help?

    Also if I go down the road of Port Replicator I need drivers for speed ports Hi of the Replicator to work on the Tecra 9100?

    Or to ask the question – what is the PCMIA USB 2.0 card in that advanced with HI Port Replicator speeed USB is not?

    Thanks in advance


    the Tecra 9100 has NO usb 2.0 and it's a fact. Given that the Replicator has these USB ports 2.0 does not mean that your machine when it is docked to the Portrep, is able to manage USB 2.0 devices. The portrep, it's like a usb hub and behaves like. So if your machine doesn´t have it then that's it.

    And the explanation on the PCMCIA/Cardbus solution:
    The pcmcia card USB 2.0 Chipset, this is the reason why it IS a USB 2.0 device (roothub).

    I hope this was clear to you :)

    Just buy this card and you will have USB 2.0

    After the upgrade to windows 10, I checked the updates from Microsoft and HP through the HP support Assistant.  All updates installed HP exceptiont for 'dual-band Broadcom WLAN drivers for Windows 10'.

  • TECRA 9100 - loss of sound, WLAN, BT, and SD function


    during the operation of a USB - HDD and mp3 player on my Tecra 9100, abruptly stopped, power to the WLAN-, Sound-, Bluetooth, SD - Card.
    For example: no sound microphone, WLAN switch does not work, reports of Bluetooth: no power supply.

    On this issue, I heard more often in some forums. My warranty has expired. Regular service is more expensive than a Tecra 9100 of second hand.

    Can anyone give some advice? Which piece can be damaged, motherboard, I I/O-board?

    Post edited by: apco

    It sounds really bad.
    As far as I know there is only one Board and if something is wrong with a part of the motherboard only management as a whole must be replaced!
    As you have already said this replacement is not very cheap, because the jury is one of the expansive laptop parts.

    Without diagnostic tests, no one will be able to provide a just and final diagnosis.
    That's why I recommend you contact a technician from laptop to a cheque

    After these checks you can find out more details on the breakdown and could decide what you what to do; buy a second hand laptop or try to repair the old Tecra

    Good luck
