Toshiba P25-S477 internal wireless problem

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.

    Yes, I installed windows 2000 on it myself, on a fresh drive.

    Like I said, it's not a big deal. It's a fresh install, with all the updates, etc.

    Must be a Toshiba thing...

Toshiba boots to Windows XP logo then goes to boot screen P25-S520

This is a case where the hard drive is probably defective, or corrupted window files. Remove the hardware from the computer and then re-install it, sometimes this will start up the hard drive into normal operation, beyond this you will need a professional to take it to the next level.

That won't fix your problem. You need to find the latest drivers for your wireless adapter.

What kind of computer do you have? Model numbers are great.

Cannot get Toshiba [email protected]% S507 to see new hard drive.

you can't use a restore disk made for a specific hard drive with a much larger hard drive. This information is checked by the restore cd. You would need to contact toshiba and get a regular windows install cd.
