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?

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.
Just use "Atheros 802.11a/b/g,b/g Mini-PCI/PCIe Driver v126.96.36.199 or later for Windows XP"and get the problem solved.You can either download the driver from Atheros site or search for that on google.I am using Windows XP Pro with SP3 on the same mechine and the wireless is working fine.In case of any problem you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
