Question about Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 Notebook
We recently installed Windows XP Pro with SP2 on my A65 labtop and in the process of installation there was an error that warned: windows does not support realtek rtl 8139 ethernet but we continued with the installation. Then a second error popped up: windows does not support atheros wireless driver or something to that effect. So we hit cancel installation and now even after restarting the wireless card is no longer working and we can't get a LAN connection to work either. Please help?? Any idea why XP Pro with SP2 does not seem compatible with my ethernet and wireless driver?
Perhaps what is required is to install the drivers separately and use those from the manufacturer, Toshiba. Incidentally, there are 18 versions of a Satellite A65, which one is yours pls? (Versions start from S1062...S1762).
Pls start here and select Portables, Satellite, and A65 + Version, then click on "Show Results" button.
Alternately, you may want to jumpstart and try this for the RTL8139 and/or this for the Atheros WiFi. Both are for Windows XP.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
