Hi, obviusly this sounds like the hardware is not installed via drivers, atheros cards are a pain to be honest as they do not have a universal driver for them you have to download a pacific driver for that card, if you go to the site on this link you will find the drivers for your system, download them and install it you should be ok...hope this helps

If you have a Toshiba Recovery CD you may be able to install XP, otherwise :-
You need a Windows XP installation CD together with the installation Product code.
To install Windows XP insert the CD in the laptop and boot up with the CD and follow the screen instructions.

You can download any/all the Windows XP device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page.
Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers.
Use this link :-.

Installation of windows xp on a preloaded windows vista laptop


See this , you have to download the SATA driver , as you have a SATA hard disk , then slipstream it into the xp installation package.

Alternatively , put the driver on a floppy and press F2 when prompted during the setup when its loading all the files (It says Press F2 if you want t o install a SATA Driver"

Then it will detect your drive and install as normal :D

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
