Atheros WPA driver doesn't work - Portege 3500
Posted: 09-Mar-2007 16:17
 
Hi,
I have a Toshiba Portege 3500, but it only works with Toshiba Wlan Adapter (only WEP).
Even I tried :

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_dtlViewDL.jsp?soid=553445
it won't work !
The device cannot start.

Any suggestion ?

Thank you,
Liviu

Hi

Nothing to do dudeā€¦ The kind of WLan encription depends on the hardware and not on the software (wlan driver).
If the WLan card hardware does not support WPA then you cannot use it and the driver update or new installation will not help!!!

If you want use the WPA you have two possibilities;
either you will replace the Wlan card or you will use an external solution like an USB WLan stick or PCMCI card.

I am pretty sure that your WLAN card can not use WPA encryption because of technical limitation. The same is with my Tecra M1. There is no way to make it work with WPA.

Sorry but you must search for other solution.
