Question about Toshiba (K000006610) for Satellite P25 Series Motherboard
I was given a P25-S477 with XP on it. I decided to swap out the hard drive and install windows 2000, just to play around with it.
Everything works fine, except the Toshiba internal wireless.
I tried all the 'ConfigFree' utilities from Toshiba's website.
All of the correct internal wireless card drivers are installed, no problems in device manager.
It 'sees' the network with a 100% signal, yet will not connect.
I tried every combination of settings with the router, even completely dropping all security settings.
When I put the XP hard drive back in, it works fine, even with MAC filtering enabled on the router (i added the MAC to the allow list).
Am I over-looking some goofy setting somewhere with this 'ConfigFree' utility??
As I said, it's just to play around with W2K, so it's not really a big deal, I just hate when I can't get something to work.
There is a wireless kill switch on the left-hand side of the laptop.
Also, there is a hot switch button FN-F8
