Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop doesn't recognize a wireless card.

Hey, I bought a Toshiba Sattelite L300 PSLB0E and I figured that I wanted Linux on it, so I reinstalled but after a few months I wanted Windows Vista on it again. Unfortunally when I bought it I didn't get either the operating system or a cd with the drivers. So I went online and downloaded all the drivers that were suppoused to work on that specific laptop but of course something had to go wrong and now the laptop doesn't seem to find the wireless card even though I installed the correct driver for it downloaded from the Toshiba website. What can I do to fix this?

You have to install the correct Vista driver for the 'type' of card you are using. It could be an Intel, Atheros, Realtek etc
Have a look here:

You could download Belarc Advisor, which will tell you a lot about your computer and the hardware that it is using, including your wireless card type. Download and install the appropriate driver from that site and install it and reboot.
Hope this helps:)

    Also, you can download the .iso for the new Ubuntu distro and burn it onto a disk, and let it install on a different partition during the install, and that way you'll have both operating systems, and the update manager in ubuntu should automatically detect your wifi card and download the driver and dependencies from the repository for you, and autoinstall too..
    try that..

Hi my wireless has just gone it is not recognized in the device manager and a USB Device not Recognized pop up is showing up. i restart it a couple of times and once it did showed up but after i did it...


Try unplugging the wireless adapter and plugging into a different usb connection. Windows will install it and then check if it works. You can also try uninstalling the adapter from the device manager and search the manufacturers support website for the driver download page. You should be able to find the wireless adapter driver here, download and follow installation instructions to install a new one.

Activating wireless


Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless card is working and enabled. If not reinstall the wireless card driver.
If this doesn't work, you may have a faulty wireless card.
If the wireless card is not built-in remove it and insert it into another computer to test the wireless card.

My toshiba satellite l300 laptop wont connect to my wireless device this is wot its saying is wrong wot does this mean and how do i fix it atheros ar5007eg pci/ven_168c&dev_001c&su code 43 thats wot it is...


The Atheros AR5007EG is a wireless adapter card, that plugs into your Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 laptop. The Code 43 means Windows doesn't recognize it anymore. I suggest it's either a Driver problem, or the wireless adapter card itself is bad.

This is Toshiba Support. On this page you will see the following headings,

1.Choose Category
Click on Laptops

2.Choose Family
Click on Satellite Pro

3.Choose Model
Using the side bar, click on the down arrow, and scroll the models down. You need to click on the exact model, of L300 you have.

As you can see, there are many. Look on the bottom of your laptop, and you will find the exact model number. I suggest you write it down. Then match it up to one of those model numbers.

When you have matched it up, click on it. Then go to the right, and click on GO, in Red.

Since I do not know your exact model number, I'm going to choose -> L300-EZ1004V <- (First L300 in the list), for an example,
(You Must have the exact model number. You need THE drivers for YOUR laptop)

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2041070&rpn=PSLB1U&modelFilter=L300-EZ1004V&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667

This takes me to the main page for support, for the Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-EZ1004V

You will see the Support Bullitens for this laptop, and the Support Bulliten tab.
Click on the -> Downloads tab.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2041070&rpn=PSLB1U&modelFilter=L300-EZ1004V&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667

The above page is what I get. I'm on Page 3. If this link doesn't take you to Page 3, then go to the bottom, and click on 3, or click on ->
Next, until you are on Page 3.

On Page 3 you will see ->
Atheros Wireless LAN Driver for Windows XP (v7.4.2.75;04/07/2008;5M)

For the Atheros Wireless LAN driver, for THIS laptop, that's what I would click on. Then I would click on Save. If you don't have your downloads saved to your My Documents folder, it will go straight to your desktop screen. This is for whatever computer you are using to download this driver file.

You then burn this file to a CD disk. This disk is installed into your Satellite Pro L300 laptop. When you save it, try to save it to your My Documents folder. Then go to Start>My Documents, and double-click on this file. It may be a zip file. If so, the Extraction Wizard will come up, and you go to the top left, and click on ->
Extract All Files.

Then click on Ok, and in the next window click on -> Next.
Look for a file that states -> Setup, or a file that ends in -> .exe
Double-click on that file. If you get a Microsoft warning window, ignore it. Click on Run, and Run again.

NOW remember! The above IS JUST AN EXAMPLE!
You need to find YOUR exact model number, and go through the example shown above.
