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
to update.

Panasonic CF29 usually used Intel Brand WIFI adapters
so drivers could usually be found at the link:

SOURCE: get wifi to work on Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 PC Notebook

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,,,

    Cf-29 replace mouse pad


    Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 series of Notebook PC's, Service Manual,

    http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-panasonic

    Go to the line that starts with CF-29N3LGZBM, and CF-29NTQGZBM

    For the CF-29N3LGZBM the disassembly starts on Page 19, and for the CF-29NTQGZBM.
    I don't see the difference, but perhaps you will between the two.

    To me a CF-29 is a CF-29

    You disassemble from the Bottom up. Remove Base Enclosure,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ITIcLckkIw

    (No narration, just 'elevator' music)

    Remove Mousepad,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=8BJRwBwCKhg&feature=endscreen

    A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery

    B) USE an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
    (Electro Static Discharge)

    Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
    Wear an ESD wrist strap, and your laptop is safe from Static.
    (From you)

    Don't wear one, and use your laptop for an expensive paperweight.
    Average cost is $3 to $6. This is but one example,

    http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

    I connect to an unpainted surface, of an empty open desktop computer case. (I don't feel an Anti-Static Mat is warranted, and can explain)

    You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
    Or perhaps a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

    You can't discharge Static by touching the metal frame, of the laptop.
    Doesn't work that way. (ZZZZZzzzzap! Goodbye computer )

    C) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
    Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
    SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws!
    Advise do NOT mix them up.

    D) Take photos, or use a video cam; if available. Use good lighting.
    Make notes, and/or drawings if you wish.

    It's nice to have a Personal record, as well as a Service Manual, and pictorial information.
    It's nicer to have YOUR method YOU used, along with the above.

    Jus sayin'.

    No.1 Philips screwdriver

    Put everything back just LIKE it came out. Don't pinch any cables.

    I can't say 100% for sure, but usually if the wi-fi works for a computer, it should work for an iPad. Therefore, I highly doubt you'd have to upgrade the router.

    CF-29, shuts down periodically. restarts then works for a while, then shuts down. Error message says something about a mini dump.


    Hi,

    Maybe due to overheating issues. Clean up the cpu FAN (HAS TO BE FREE OF LINT AND DUST). For this you have to disassembly your laptop

    If that doesn't help you may want to run Windows Recovery Console
