This happen regularly on the older Toughbooks. Find an XP or Win2000 modem driver for the 27 or 72 at Panasonic's support site or and it should work just fine. It will allow the machine (XP) to recognize the modem and install the drivers.OS wont recognize wireless modem - spellcheck.gif

Internal wireless modem on but os does not recongnize it

check the network adapters in control panel, right click on the wireless adapter, check to see if it was inadvertently set to "disabled" then there is also sometimes a wireless off/on soft switch like FN button and a corresponding number key (look for the wireless icon), and sometimes a wireless physical switch on the front or side. if the above all fails. Identify the adapter. I would flip it over to get at the bottom, next I'd take the bottom cover off to expose the wireless adapter, this cover is typically marked with an antenna icon on the bottom. the card fits into a small slot about 1 inch wide held in by two clips on the outside. very easy to get out. then look at all the markings to identify what wireless make/model the card it is. and you can also check to make sure its not gotten knocked out of its seat. Now you know what your dealing with you can surf to the manufacturers website and look for a "driver" or software for your operating system. eg. vista. or xp. download, install , reboot. and with an ounce of luck. it will now work. (alot of these adapters also install ) best of luck. Cheers

I need to know what is the highest operating system that can go on my panasonic CF-27 toughbook?

Most often the OS that came with the system is usually optomized fot the hardware.
However if the notebook came with say Win 98, ME, or XP you should be able to upgrade to the latest XP SP-3.
I would be surprised if Vista would work on a machine that wasn't already equipped in running at least XP SP-2

CF 27 Original Boot Disk

What OS did you load? It originally came with either Win 95 or Win 98. I believe I've got the restore cd for the CF-27 Win 98 at the shop. I could burn you a copy.
BTW, how did you get it to load from a usb cdrom?
