The Intel Pro wireless 2915 AGB in my toshiba M40 has stoped working. As its out of warrenty, toshiba are quoting $90 just to look at the problem and from previous experience I know any parts will be at highly inflated prices. I have found a new card for sale for $60 and am wondering how to replace it. I have limited experience in changing computer parts and would like to know how it is done.
On the bottom of the laptop there will most likely be 2 panels to remove. One will be the hard drive, the other will be your RAM modules and most likely your wireless card. It'll probably be in the middle. Open this up, your wireless card will have two wires plugged into it that you'll have to unplug. Then on each side there is a tab that you have to click outward, then the card will flip up. Then you can just pull it outward. Do the reverse for installing the new card.

I dont think so as the S1712 uses the Atheros® 802.11 b/g wireless-LAN card and the s2716 uses the Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG card. You can call Toshiba TS to verify, but most likely they are not interchangeable as they are different. That doesn't mean that it is 100% a no go as it still might function, but chances are slim. Here are links to the specs for each machine:
The internal wireless cards of these laptops are underneath the keyboard (remove the plastic strip above the keyboard, then 2 screws holding down the keyboard, then remove the Torx security screw holding the WiFi cover). See if the snow job might have gotten to it and perhaps corroded it? The stock WiFi card is an Agere MPC-13a/20 (MPC-13a/20R) model - widely available on eBay for $10 or less.
If it's too troublesome, a wireless card that plugs into your PC card slot is probably the cheapest solution.
Depends on the model mate most do but, as for the ones that don't then the ATHEROS chipset WIFI board that fits insde and is widley available froom sellers on-line better on ebay though also you can always use a wireless PCMCIA card in the card slot or, buy the internal one and fit it.
Not enough info per problem description. Not all 1900 series laptops have wireless cards installed, and not all 1900 series laptops are ready to handle wireless cards, either. Need to know what model your computer is, what wireless card you're using, ... C'mon. Let's have it...
