Question about Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
On ALL older Panasonic Toughbooks the original
WIFI drivers were the original drivers which shipped
with the operating system.
These drivers usually have a date of 2003 or 2004.
There are NEWER WIFI drivers that work with the
latest routers (G or N). The new drivers have dates
of 2006 or 2007 for Windows XP and 2008 or 2009
or even later for Windows 7.
The CF29 MK1 used a WIFI "B" Adapter which is limited.
The MK2 used a WIFI "G" Adapter which will be easier
Panasonic CF29 usually used Intel Brand WIFI adapters
so drivers could usually be found at the link:

CF 29's usually use the 3945 Intel card but I've seen some with the 2200. The trick is to make sure you get the right drivers. You can use the Intel reference drivers or fight your way through the Panasonic website and get the ones supplied with your pc. I've seen some of the older toughbooks have problems with wireless because they have an AB card and some access points don't even fall back to G never mind A. If your access point insists on N or G and you demand A or B (different speeds, mostly) then you won't be able to connect.
Swapping the wireless on a CF 29 is a pain, need to remove the whole bottom and then seal it back up with Official Black Silicone :-) in case it falls in the swimming pool... But the cards are cheap. If this is at home it'd be way easier to buy a dual radio access point for 50 bucks and run G AND N,,,
