Toshiba Wireless Mini Lan Card, No Signal!

I Installed the card and configured the network, it will connect, but i get NO SIGNAL!!! very frustrating! Do i need to update the driver? the driver is pretty damn old (7/1/01), and to be honest i dont want to DL just anything off the internet. and i can't find this model on the Toshiba website. i have already sunk many hours on just searching.
I have a Del B130, OS -XP, i also just installed new memory (1 gig)
Device manager says the hardware is working properly.
Any advice would be appreciated...Greatly!!!
Thanx in advance!

Try finding an updated driver @ driverguide.com. it usually has obscure drivers for older equipment.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.


that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.

My Internal Wireless Card will not work.


there are none available. somehow its lost its ability to communicate with the driver ,more than likely from a virus that wuold be contained by a virus software update. save your files to a flash drive or disk and run the factory restore disks that came with you pc or run the image program from the hard drive. tutorial to both processes can be seen at the toshiba web site under support

How to enable WI-FI function on Compaq Presario 2500 lap top.


Go to "network connections"

It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.

If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.

Double click it to correctly install the Wireless adapter.
Follow the instructions on screen. This should take no more than 90 seconds from start to finish.

Wireless Problems!


The computer looks for the cable because wireless is not working.

If wireless card is usb try removing laptop battery, unplugging power adapter and wifi cards, connect in five minutes and see if it works

If it still does not work, reinstall wireless card drivers.
If you have a disk reinstall them from disk.
If you lost the disk download drivers from the Internet, post model on fixya to get the link.

If the wireless card does not work after reinstalling drivers then it is probably faulty.

Note: if you use laptop internal wireless, usually you need to activate a switch to get it working.
