Equium A100 new hard drive, need drivers for wireless internet
Posted: 21-Nov-2009 19:28
 
Hi,
I just upgraded ny hard drive and added xp instead of vista to my laptop.
I now cannot connect to the internet (wireless option is not even showing as available in network connections) and next to ethernet in devices there is a yellow question mark and exclamtion mark next to it.

I have checked the drivers download page, but there are so many to choose from to download.

Can anyone tell me which one I need?
Also, a link to the drivers for my sound card would be extremely helpful too as those seem to disappeared too!

Hope you can help!

You need definitely the WLan driver.

Here you will find all Wlan drivers:

Sorry but there are many Equium A100 models and therefore it’s not possible to say what WLan driver you have without knowing the model number….

Hi

I think the notebook uses the Atheros Wlan card (ATHEROS 802.11 B/G XB61).
So try to install the Atheros Wlan card driver and test it!

I think you will get it running...

Hello

You should try the Atheros driver from the Toshiba WLAN portal. It should work for all Atheros cards normally.

Check this!!!!
