The Atheros AR5007EG is a wireless adapter card, that plugs into your Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 laptop. The Code 43 means Windows doesn't recognize it anymore. I suggest it's either a Driver problem, or the wireless adapter card itself is bad.

This is Toshiba Support. On this page you will see the following headings,

1.Choose Category
Click on Laptops

2.Choose Family
Click on Satellite Pro

3.Choose Model
Using the side bar, click on the down arrow, and scroll the models down. You need to click on the exact model, of L300 you have.

As you can see, there are many. Look on the bottom of your laptop, and you will find the exact model number. I suggest you write it down. Then match it up to one of those model numbers.

When you have matched it up, click on it. Then go to the right, and click on GO, in Red.

Since I do not know your exact model number, I'm going to choose -> L300-EZ1004V <- (First L300 in the list), for an example,
(You Must have the exact model number. You need THE drivers for YOUR laptop)

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2041070&rpn=PSLB1U&modelFilter=L300-EZ1004V&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667

This takes me to the main page for support, for the Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-EZ1004V

You will see the Support Bullitens for this laptop, and the Support Bulliten tab.
Click on the -> Downloads tab.

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2041070&rpn=PSLB1U&modelFilter=L300-EZ1004V&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768667

The above page is what I get. I'm on Page 3. If this link doesn't take you to Page 3, then go to the bottom, and click on 3, or click on ->
Next, until you are on Page 3.

On Page 3 you will see ->
Atheros Wireless LAN Driver for Windows XP (v7.4.2.75;04/07/2008;5M)

For the Atheros Wireless LAN driver, for THIS laptop, that's what I would click on. Then I would click on Save. If you don't have your downloads saved to your My Documents folder, it will go straight to your desktop screen. This is for whatever computer you are using to download this driver file.

You then burn this file to a CD disk. This disk is installed into your Satellite Pro L300 laptop. When you save it, try to save it to your My Documents folder. Then go to Start>My Documents, and double-click on this file. It may be a zip file. If so, the Extraction Wizard will come up, and you go to the top left, and click on ->
Extract All Files.

Then click on Ok, and in the next window click on -> Next.
Look for a file that states -> Setup, or a file that ends in -> .exe
Double-click on that file. If you get a Microsoft warning window, ignore it. Click on Run, and Run again.

NOW remember! The above IS JUST AN EXAMPLE!
You need to find YOUR exact model number, and go through the example shown above.

Laptop been rebuilt now cannot connect via wireless, even tiscali cannot help


Go to this page:

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download

Then Choose Laptops, satellite pro, then you'll need to find the exact model of your laptop. it will be on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

Click on that model in the list and click on the go button. Choose your operating system that you have installed on your laptop.

For the category choose wi-fi. There might be up to three different drivers to choose from. Choose the Atheros driver first, download it and install it and see if the system recognizes it. If not then do the same for the realtek and then finally intel.

If after all this the card is still not recogized then your wireless is bad and would need to be replaced.

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,

Laptop doesn't recognize a wireless card.


You have to install the correct Vista driver for the 'type' of card you are using. It could be an Intel, Atheros, Realtek etc
Have a look here:
http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=

872538f.jpg
You could download Belarc Advisor, which will tell you a lot about your computer and the hardware that it is using, including your wireless card type. Download and install the appropriate driver from that site and install it and reboot.
Hope this helps:)
