Intermittent wireless on my toshiba

I have a toshiba equium p200, its vista, the wireless used to not function, but i downloaded the atheros network driver, this sorted this.

however now the wireless works intermittently with either me having to disable/enable the device to restart the connection or reboot the laptop. qit just seems to suddenly not recognise the wireless, the physical switch at the front works fine. help! its really annoying!

Make sure you have the latest drivers, router and NB.

Does it connect on reboot with the SSID off?

Does it work on repair?

if so, check your energy settings, some times they power down the wireless to save energy. There are also settings on how it behaves.

SOURCE: WEP key

what is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex. 192.168.1.1
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)

athr.sys = the driver for the Atheros wireless network card. You must update it.

You don't need anything like USB adapters or an external adpater, wireless Network Adapter comes inbuilt in your notebook.

Just download the the wireless driver,

If you are using Windows Vista, for Atheros chipset Click here

If you are using Windows Vista, for broadcom chipset click here

If you are using Windows XP, for Atheros chipset
Click here

If you are using Windows XP, for Broadcomm chipset

Click here

Your Wireless network will work.

Note : Install the driver according to your chipset and the Operating System.

That's it..

Problems with the Atheros ATH AR5bxb63 on XP.


Hi,

May i ask what the problem is as you have not said!!

If it is with the driver, no wireless connection, etc then please could you do to my computer, right click properties, then click device manager. In device manager click networking devices and then right click on the Atheros wireless device to uninstall it.

After it has been uninstalled can you download this updated driver and then restart your laptop.

It should when rebooted come up with found new hardware (the wireless controller). This link will take you to the toshiba downloads http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads. The first download for wireless Atheros is the most recent (06/09).

I hope this helps,

Karlos

Lan and wireless driver for toshiba a135-s2246


Unfortunately, the Toshiba Satelite A135-S2246 was never designed to run XP, only Vista. Which is why you can't find any drivers for XP. The nearest you can get is to find a laptop running XP SP2 that is using the same LAN (ethernet controller) and WLAN (wireless ethernet controller), and see if they will work.

Here are the drivers I found for XP (please check which one's you are trying to install):

Atheros WiFi card driver:
http://www.wireless-driver.com/download/atheros/2007-7-23/Atheros-ar5bxb6-AR5424-mini-PCI-E-Wireless-Card-Driver-Download.htm

Intel WiFi card driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx
You will need to search for the card that you have.

LAN (ethernet controller):
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#1
You can pick third or fourth from top depending on your preference.

Please remember that Toshiba, Microsoft, Atheros, Realtek, Intel and especially myself accept no responsibilty for what may, or may not happen when installing drivers not specifically designed for your system. All that said, I hope it works for you.

I have a toshiba Equium L300 & it cannot connect to a wireless router. I have been advised that it is missing a ethernet/wireless driver. Please advise


From what I see about the Equium, the name Equium is in use in UK only. In other European & countries USA the name is Satellite. From the specs of the model you mentioned you DO have a onboard NIC. You might have to uninstall the driver that you have due to corruption and the operating system will install a generic driver for you to use. Or you can go to Toshiba if you’re in Europe
http://www.toshiba-europe.com locate support and you can download the driver there.

If you have a driver your probably not setting (configuring the router and your computer) the network up properly.

Networking Networking: Network adapter
Wireless LAN Supported: Yes
Wireless NIC: Realtek RTL8187B
Data Link Protocol: Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g
Compliant Standards: IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED
