Toshiba Satellite M40 Internal Wireless Card replacement

The Intel Pro wireless 2915 AGB in my toshiba M40 has stoped working. As its out of warrenty, toshiba are quoting $90 just to look at the problem and from previous experience I know any parts will be at highly inflated prices. I have found a new card for sale for $60 and am wondering how to replace it. I have limited experience in changing computer parts and would like to know how it is done. Thanks Andy

Re: Toshiba Satellite M40 Internal Wireless Card...

On the bottom of the laptop there will most likely be 2 panels to remove. One will be the hard drive, the other will be your RAM modules and most likely your wireless card. It'll probably be in the middle. Open this up, your wireless card will have two wires plugged into it that you'll have to unplug. Then on each side there is a tab that you have to click outward, then the card will flip up. Then you can just pull it outward. Do the reverse for installing the new card.

Interchangeable parts

I dont think so as the S1712 uses the Atheros® 802.11 b/g wireless-LAN card and the s2716 uses the Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG card. You can call Toshiba TS to verify, but most likely they are not interchangeable as they are different. That doesn't mean that it is 100% a no go as it still might function, but chances are slim. Here are links to the specs for each machine:

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000. The wireless LAN was working ok till some snow got onto the back of the pc. The PC boots up ok but cannot find any wireless network. The Wireless led on the front panel...

The internal wireless cards of these laptops are underneath the keyboard (remove the plastic strip above the keyboard, then 2 screws holding down the keyboard, then remove the Torx security screw holding the WiFi cover). See if the snow job might have gotten to it and perhaps corroded it? The stock WiFi card is an Agere MPC-13a/20 (MPC-13a/20R) model - widely available on eBay for $10 or less.

If it's too troublesome, a wireless card that plugs into your PC card slot is probably the cheapest solution.

I have a Toshiba 2435-S255 replace wireless adapter.

Do not replace Internal Wireless card.Instaed go for USB card.They will give more strength compare to inbuilt one.And they cost a lot cheaper then replacing  a new laptop wireless card.

Belkin is what I recommend.

Wireless network disconnecting

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!

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.
