Go to the IBM WEB site to their support/download page and download the XP versions of the drivers you need for your model laptop.
You will need to do this from another conputer that is connected to the Internet.

Wireless button


The T30 laptops do not have a on/off button that turns the wireless card on.
Once the wireless card driver is installed the wireless card will detect any wireless router and access point within its range. You need to configure the wireless card to connect into the wireless router or access point eg. the encryption, SSID etc.
The Thinkpad laptops have different wireless LAN cards installed, when you install a wireless card driver and it doesn't work, then install a different model wireless card driver. Also make sure the XP or Vista version of the wireless driver matches the Windows version that is installed on the laptop.

Not detecting Wireless Adapter


Reinstall the wireless adapter driver, if need download a copy from www.dell.com use the Service Tag number (its printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop) to get the correct model laptop drivers.
Use another computer to get on the Internet.
You could use the Restore function, select a date before you installed SP2, then download the driver before you install the SP2.
Please note, you should be installing SP3 not SP2.

Lan and wireless driver for toshiba a135-s2246


Unfortunately, the Toshiba Satelite A135-S2246 was never designed to run XP, only Vista. Which is why you can't find any drivers for XP. The nearest you can get is to find a laptop running XP SP2 that is using the same LAN (ethernet controller) and WLAN (wireless ethernet controller), and see if they will work.

Here are the drivers I found for XP (please check which one's you are trying to install):

Atheros WiFi card driver:
http://www.wireless-driver.com/download/atheros/2007-7-23/Atheros-ar5bxb6-AR5424-mini-PCI-E-Wireless-Card-Driver-Download.htm

Intel WiFi card driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx
You will need to search for the card that you have.

LAN (ethernet controller):
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#1
You can pick third or fourth from top depending on your preference.

Please remember that Toshiba, Microsoft, Atheros, Realtek, Intel and especially myself accept no responsibilty for what may, or may not happen when installing drivers not specifically designed for your system. All that said, I hope it works for you.

Satellite a65 problem with atheros wireless driver after XP Pro SP2 installed


Hi,

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.

I cant get my wireless to work.


What service packs are installed,
if OS is XP then update to SP2,
any devices present will automatically be updated when you do a windows update,
update then reboot and try again.
Uninstall/reinstall both devices,
You can do the updates from your device manager just select the device right click and update.

This should fix both issues,Wireless and Sound.
