Question about Toshiba Tecra 9000 Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless LAN PCI card

The wireless LAN on this aging but excellent laptop no longer works. System reports the card as working but says it's not turned on. Turning on the manual switch (or using the keyboard shortcut) no longer turns on the LED for the wireless card and does not affect the card. I have a replacement card (found on Amazon for very little money BTW) but before I tear the 9000 apart and install, I want to see if it is the switch itself that is faulty. Any suggestions or links to helpful sites would be greatly appreciated.

For the tecra 9000 it does have a wireless switch on the side of the laptop or infront.

the only way to test this is by dismantling it and using a tester. (hope you have them).

Below you will find 2 options to add wireless connectivity to your desktop.
A. USB Wireless LAN
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&category_id=6638&nf=44907%7e0%7e598274&sort=-ratingaverage&~ck=anav
This is the easiest solution to add a wireless connection. Simply connect the USB adapter, install the software it comes with and connect to the wifi signal, once configured.

B. PCI/PCI-e Hardware Wireless LAN
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&category_id=5821&nf=44907~0~598274&sort=price&~ck=anav
Adding a PCi/PCI-e expansion card requires opening your computer and manually installing the card, then installing the driver/software and configuring the wireless access. These cards typically offer faster speeds and stronger radios to communicate with wifi signals better.
NOTE: There are 2 types of wireless cards in the second link: PCI/PCI-e and Half-Card/Mini-Card. Half/Mini-Card adapters are for laptops only - they will not work on desktop computers!
Both USB or PCI/PCI-e offer excellent solutions to getting wireless access from your desktop. Furthermore, since it can be purchased through Dell.com, they can ship anywhere worldwide, so delivery to the Netherlands should not be a problem.
If you have any questions, you can always contact Dell's Customer Support by telephone and be sure to give them your service tag number, that will ensure that you get only the parts that match your desktop.

LAN Nic Card Seems to be bad? No longer works.


Before getting to this conclusion ...try to see if it isnt a driver issue ..the driver can be missing if you uninstalled it by mistake ..or if a an automatic update installed a wrong driver....or if you reinstalled teh operation system and did not installed the driver for it ..
In this case download the original driver from the support site ..and run it into computer ..restart and try out the card and see if it works ..if it does all good..if not ..than you may think of getting a solution ..usually the card is on the mother board..unless you are talking about the wireless one ..the wireless card can be changed a..and so the LAN card if it is not built in the mother board ..If it is ..and you do not have space or slot to install it..just get a card on another bus.. either usb or pci ..

Try uninstalling your pcmcia drive in device manager and then restart the laptop and let windows reinstall it. With the pci wifi card out of the slot of course. Then once the laptop is started back up and the slot is reinstalled by windows reinsert your wifi card and reload the proper driver.
Good Luck.

Compaterable PCI adapter / motherboard.


Hi Peter,

To my knowledge it will still work. Most hardware compatibility issue has been addressed by the manufacturers when it comes with motherboards, meaning the PCI wireless LAn will auto-downshift itself to conform to whatever the motherboard PCI slots are capable of dishing out. Based on experience, comparable brands/models (LinkSys, NetGear & D-Link) have worked with Socket 370 motherboards (PIIIs & Celerons) as well as Socket 472 (Durons & Athlons).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
