Question about Toshiba Satellite 5205-S503 Notebook
I just did a clean install of XP Pro on a toshiba satellite 5205-s503 laptop.
Went to Toshba for the drivers and got most of what I needed using another machine. The device manager indicates missing drivers for the Ethernet controller and the USB controller. Nothing from Toshiba will correct this problem and as the unit will not access the internet, it can't go look for drivers.
So as a work around, I tried to install an old trendnet TE100-PC16R pcmcia ethernet card but it will not install on XP. So much for that idea.
The computer almost connects to the router using the onboard cat 5 connector, but comes up with a "limited or no connectivity" due to the fact that the router did not assign an IP to the laptop. I tried assigning a static address to the laptop and used two good Dns's but still no luck accessing the internet.
