Wireless network disconnecting

After Toshiba Satellite M40 was dropped the Wireless network disconnecting after about a minute.
I had to reinstall Win XP Pro SP3, downloaded and installed the latest drivers for the laptop.
I have checked the connections to the Wireless card all is ok.
No errors in device manager or logs.
Before I buy a new wireless card any suggestions?

There should be a panel on the bottom of the laptop that you can access the wireless card from. I'd pull the card out and then reseat it back into the motherboard.

Should be pretty self-explanatory once you see it.

Let me know what happens.

Best of luck!

I need win xp drivers for a toshiba l300 laptop that previously had vista on it. I have gotten win xp to load but I need some drivers


Click or copy and paste the link below to your browser address bar. It will take you to the XP driver section in the Toshiba Support Page, when it comes up...click on the drop down menu for all operating systems and choose XP with SP2, and SP3. Your drivers will be there.

Wireless problem


if you are using windows vista

go to control panel
go to network and sharing center.
on the left side go to manage wireless networks.
remove all the wireless networks and restart the computer.

plenty of wireless network may affect and confuse the wireless adapter.

if still having the same issue then you will need to visit toshiba website and download the drivers.

cheers

Won't maintain Internet connection


Generally the modem connections have time setting. Check if there is anything on the settings.

Another possibility it might your modem doing that. I have seen that happening on a PC.

I think you have to give a little bit more details about too to give a better opinion.
