Question about Toshiba Satellite 5105-S501 Notebook
My brother gave me his old Toshiba satellite 5105 s501 laptop, so i reformatted and reloaded windows. everything is working just fine, except for the wireless. It won't recognize my router. I have tried reinstalling the drivers, I have looked in the router settings by logging into it and it seems to me it is all set up and ready to go. We've had the router for a while actually, and multiple computers have connected, even the laptop, before I reinstalled windows. Ideas?
Did you install a retail version of Windows? You should have used the restore disc that came with the laptop when you purchased it. That will solve driver related problems if your wireless card is okay.
Check Device Manager if wireless card is still there.
If you install a retail version of Windows, check the support website. Check the wireless card's manufacturer and contact that manufacturer so they can give you the driver for the wireless card.
If you install a retail version of Windows, installing the driver from the support website might not work.
If you used the recovery disc that came with the computer, it should work.
