Hi,
please restart your system and at the blue dell logo keep tapping the F2 key, the bios setup screen will open, check in here if the lan card is enabled here or not. if not enable the lan card, once it is enabled from here windows will detect it and prompt you to install drivers.

In control panel, is wirelesss network adaptor turned on?
If NO wireless networks are detected and you know you should see some. Remove the wireless device from the system (in device manager) and restart the computer

Ethernet not work


Check in the Device manager to see if all the devices are enable and working.
The one with a yellow ? against that device requires a driver installation.
Is the LAN device OK?
How do you intend to setup your LAN, is it for Internet access or a home network?
I need more information on your problem, together with error messages.

PCMICA/USB 2.0 not recognising usb devices


Hi,

if it works on the onboard usb.
Theres a chance that either the pcmcia slot drivers are incorrect, or the actual slot is faulty.
Try it in another slot, if you have 1.
update any onboard device drivers. if applicable. try the card in a different laptop. to eliminate the card. alternatively, try a different card in the slot. wifi card et,c.

LAN CARD ADAPTOR IS MISSING AFTER FORMATING TO XP PRO


Not sure I understand you what you mean. Let me recap:
1) Your LAN adaptor was working before you reloaded Windows XP Pro.
2) Now it’s not showing up in “Device Manager”.
If this is the case, there must be some software driver missing. Make sure there are no other devices that have an error. Double check Dell’s website at www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Thank You.

Ethernet driver


dear brian,

to get you an overview on which components you have, although not installed or recognized by win xp pro, download pcwizard2008, install and run the hardware detection program, it'll give you a lots of details about your computer, you can even save the data to a pdf-file.

networking components on your laptop may be:
- the 1394 adaptor
- the( to be found) ethernet card
- and if it is onboard or u plug it in via USB 2.0 port: the WLAN-adaptor

look for the (onboard?) realtek ethernet
card(rj-45 plug, similiar to dsl-cable)
using pcwizard, find out about the model and download suitable driver rom the net for winXP.
install and then try setting up a network/internet connection

(be wise enough to use the right cable:
for hooking up your lap to an internet dsl-router use dsl cable, to establish PC to laptop connecton you will need DSL cable plus crossover adaptor !)
i recommend to use cable connections, they're
older, more reliable and for safety reasons, better than wirelessLAN!

if you have used the 1394-network adaptor before, you are better than me, I dunno anything about it.

WLAN is an option when using laptop not at home- but don't clearly understand if the toshiba model u use already has WLAN-onboard device or u do use an external, USB 2.0 device to connect to the net...?
please give more detail about that- and do tell which toshiba laptop u use as this is helpful for me to find u a proper driver, if still needed.

C U here on fixya?!
