Have bought and installed card into the A30-104 correctly, but the PC then looks go online and find to install software. I can go on line via ethernet but it can't find the software required.
No software or instructions came with the card. any suggestions?

Hi,

First of all: where did you bought that card? Which model number is written on it? Is it a toshiba card or 3rd Party?

Please give more details because your description sounds like: I bought a new car. Which tires do I need?

More details and I would be glad. Then I/we could help you to get some real good drivers. :)

Ok, thats better dude.

You have to download a Atheros driver for your card. Go here:

download the drivers and install them. Then you should be able to work with your card.

Great, thanks.

just one last question, i've had a look at the link, but there doesn't seem to be a specific reference to this card so i'm not quite sure which version to download. I'm operating off Windows XP. Any recommendation?
