Yes, i've tried this driver. It has different vendor id in .ini file, so it does not match. Even after editing .ini file & change vendor/device ID, system can recognize and install driver, but can't start the device (error message). So it seems to be invalid driver.
This driver has following pci/ven id in .ini file:
The problem was: driver on Toshiba download page is invalid for this hardware.
It is logic that this statement is based on your personal experience with this but nobody can confirm this.
It will be interesting to know if the same problem can happen after recovery image installation, and WLAN driver update only.
Most important thing is that WLAN works properly and you was able to solve this. thanks for driver download link.
Is it possible that this notebook model was not orginally equipped with Wireless network card, and the card was added for example by seller, so it differs from the orginal WLAN card from WLAN-equipped L10-193 ? Or WLAN card has been replaced for some reason?
This is not my notebook, I only support users sometimes (this case was: recover as many data as possible after hdd hardware crash), I only know user bought it from company he works for, and company bought it years ago in the shop.
