Wireless Card not working

I bought a new Toshiba Satellite A350D Laptop late last year. From that time the wireless card only works sometimes. When the laptop boots it does not start. It has a an exclamation mark in device manager. I have to uninstall it and restart the machine for it to work. I have the latest driver installed. What could possibly be the problem?

Possibility one: defective wireless card. Possibility two: improperly installed card driver.
Possibility three: wrong card driver
Possibility four: device conflict with card
For possibility four, does the card stop working when you use another device on your machine? Try disconnecting all other connected devices outside of the laptop (printers, scanners, webcams, MP3 players, etc) and see if the issue goes away. Keep us posted.

I need a wireless pci cardslot for my toshiba satellite m35x s109


Don't waste any more of your time trying to find one. Even if you found one, you more than likely wouldn't be able to get it to work well with a modern wireless router. Get a wireless USB adapter instead. You can get them for less than $10 from just about anywhere and it will actually work without hassle with your wireless router.

Which wireless card for Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301??


Lots of incompatibilities and covering pin 13 does NOT solve the problem with this series laptops. Get the MPC13A-20/R 802.11b card - it works wonderfully well, even though it's only a 'b' card.

Toshiba Satellite M35X-S109 wireless problem... will not see wireless.. says turn on ... how do i turn on wireless it worked yesterday


Hi,
You can press the Fn key + F2 to enable the wireless card.
The other way to do the same , would be through wireless switch located either on the left of right of the laptop.

You can also try restarting the computer, sometimes the driver for the wireless card can casue the conflict.

Thanks for using fixya

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.

Can't use wirelessly


Assuming you're trying to go wireless with an internal mini-PCI wireless card - this series laptops has lots of incompatibilities with WiFi cards. This one I know for sure works well: MPC13A-20/R. It's an 802.11b card and it flies. Get it.

Not getting connected to the Broadband internet


Right click on the wireless LAN and then click Repair. Do this in the Control Panel - Network Connections. This will force the wireless LAN card to get a new TCP/IP address from your wireless router.
When you get this Limited connectivity message do a repair - this is a common problem - the wireless connection icon is also on your Task Bar, you can right click in it to do a repair.

Toshiba satellite 2805-S301 laptop wireless card


Not wireless ready - as none of the 2805's were ever pre-wired with wireless card antennas. You can install a PCMCIA wireless card, or use a USB wireless adapter. Either one will work - the PCMCIA cards will be faster.
