Satellite C55-A-130 (PSCG8E-00X00DY4)

 

From Croatia.

 

We don't blindly try them all! Open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) and look under Network adapters to see whose wireless you have.

 

   Realtek Wireless Lan Driver for Windows 7 - 64 Bit, 2.00.0021, 30/07/13

 

   Intel Wireless Lan Driver for Windows 7 - 64 Bit, 15.4.1.1.0.s64, 30/07/13

 

   Atheros Wireless Lan Driver for Windows 7 - 64 Bit, 10.0.0.247, 29/07/13

 

 

And "with no effect" tells us nothing. If something doesn't work right, give us all the details.

Thanks for quick reply

 

"With no effect" I mean, that in the Device Manager Wireless Adapter isn't recognized. Under the Network Adapters are only successfuly installed Qualcomm Atheos AR8172/8176/8178 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) and Bluetooth Device. I still have one unrecognized device named Network Controller, what I assume Wireless Adapter is.

 

I tried all three drivers because I couldn't know from anywhere witch Wireless Card is in my Toshiba. Any suggestions what to to?

I still have one unrecognized device..


Right-click that device and click Properties. On the Advanced tab copy the Hardware Ids and paste them into your reply.

I don't have Advanced tab on the unrecognized device. This tab is available only on devices with installed drivers.

Re: Toshiba C55-A-130 Wireless Driver

That would be an Atheros device. Exactly what happens when you try to install the Atheros driver?

Re: Toshiba C55-A-130 Wireless Driver

First I run system restore, because I tried to install all three drivers.


Then I downloaded wlesslan-20130729134923.zip from Toshiba download page which should be Atheros driver for my Toshiba.

Inside this ZIP is TCA0096900B.exe. I see that Toshiba Extractor after extraction wants to run "tinstall.exe"...
I press Start.. then I allow permissions by clicking on Yes... and then nothing.. no installer :/

Then I went to extracted folder, and run "setup.exe".. installer appears.. and says that installation was successful. On device manager still Wireless Network adapter unrecognized :/

Same after rebooting. I do not know what could be wrong.

P.S.: I apologize myself for my bad English.

I discover that Toshiba C55-A-130 (PSCG8E-00X00DY4) uses Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter.

Problem solved with package Atheros 10.0.0.255. On Toshiba download center is version 10.0.0.247, which didn't work for me.

 

Thank you Jerry for helping me Smiley Happy
