Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S157 Notebook
Wi-Fi not connecting. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wi-fi adapter but now get a "this device cannot start (Code 10)" Intel (R) PRO/100 VE network connection.
Dude, I have the same laptop as you, and the same problem as well ! I managed to try some things out and i figured out that your wireless settings are ****ed up as soon as your laptop runs out of battery while the cover isn't open. Just shut it down by pressing the power button 5-10 seconds, then restart in safety mode with the network reset thing. This will reset the whole network settings back to defaults... ;) i know I'm a year too late, but I hope it'll help some people !

you tried giving it a static IP address rather than using automatic settings (i.e. DHCP).
Sure enough, this cured the problem, connected fine. I looked in the
dhcp server logs and while it was not complaining that the IP address
pool was all used, it did seem that all the IP addresses available were
being used. I increased the number of IP addresses available to be
allocated by the dhcp server and problem solved.
The big mystery to me is why Windows
XP would report this as a problem with a weak signal? Isn't the access
to the dhcp server and the allocation of the IP address at a layer
above the wireless connection? Anyway, it's useful to be warned that
the wireless diagnostics are misleading.
