    You can purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter or a USB WiFi adapter. See images below. You can buy these at Walmart, Best Buy, or any of your favorite electronics stores or websites. They cost between 30 to 60 dollars. I have included some pictures to help you. USB WiFi Adapter PCMCIA WiFi Card Good Luck, NOLA Tech

My satellite 5505-S504 seems to heat up and shut down. I can hear the fan but the bottom of case seems to get to hot. It will not boot up completely. It boots to the point that the windows xp logo shows,...

A lot of Toshiba laptops had overheat problems. Buy a can of air and blow out your air vents real good. One in the back is a heat sink and they accumulate dust and will start heating up. You can buy the air at any electronics or computer store or if you have an air compressor you can use that, the can air is dry.

I can not find the model number on a toshiba satelite, on the back it says the seriel number but I am not sure of the model number. I am trying to find out if it is wireless or not.

If your laptop has a built-in wireless card and the driver was installed then the easiest way to check is to go to the Device Manager and check Network Adapters to see if you have a wireless adapter, this will confirm if you have one or not.

I have an old Toshiba 5005-S504 - want wireless connection

I looked at the specs of the laptop and it doesnt seem to have a inbuilt wireless card. Here is where I looked and if this is indeed the laptop you have, then it doesnt have a wireless card built it,
Since it has 3 USB ports, you can use one of those ports to add a wireless card. Netgear has a card.. More detials of this card are in this link.
So, if you plug the WG111 in and install it, it should help work. Netgear has free 90 days support and they can help you install. Not complicated at all,if you read the manual before calling the customer.
Hope this helps Ranjit

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 Secure Digital Card Slot problem

Hi there
Take a close look inside the card slot (you may need a torch/flashlight) look to see if any of the brass pins are bent or out of position, if they are use a very small flat head screwdriver to gently push them back into place.
If all looks fine with the slot and there are no foreign objects inside your card maybe faulty.
Also i suggest the you check the drivers are installed, check this in device manager.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
