Sattelite C655 WiFi Problems

I am running 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium, Atheros AR9285 wifi card.

The laptop takes 20+ minutes to connect to networks where everyone else has internet the second they start their laptop. It will say it is connected, but internet doesn't work for 20+ minutes.

Also, once it does work, it drops out every once in a while, saying it is still connected, but no internet works.

Internet via LAN works perfect, but that defeats the purpose of a laptop.

What can I do?

Waiting for you to tell us which Satellite C655? Which part number? Which country?

 

What sort of networks are you dealing with? Public? Do you have a recent wireless router to experiment with?

TOSHIBA Satellite C655-S5049 PSC08U-02D01D

US

I am working with my university network, which works for everyone else completely fine, and the same goes for my network back at home (other computers have no problem, this one does).

I can't access the router here (it's a Cisco, can't get the model # as it's fastened to the wall), router at home is a Linksys E3000

 

Thanks

Can't hurt to reinstall the driver.

I have tried that, and even found a newer driver than that?

I currently have 9.0.0.173

Re: Sattelite C655 WiFi Problems

I am having similar issues,  I have a Satellite C655-S5132 with an Atheros AR9285 wireless card.  I have installed the latest driver that I found from Toshiba.  I know my wireless router in the house works because I have another laptop that accesses with ease each time.  Someone, please advise.
