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.
