Driver downloaded from product's page does not match device.

Device Manager: Network controller (yellow color)
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4220&SUBSYS_27418086&REV_05\4&16793A72&0&20F0

System: XP Home, just installed

All other drivers from Toshiba website for this model are OK.

How to fix this problem?

Hello

VEN_8086&DEV_4220
This means it’s Intel WLAN card that is installed in your system.

So you have to install the driver mentioned by Andrej. That’s the correct driver for this device & vendor ID.

Check this!!!

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:

INPROCOMM
%INPROCOMM.DeviceDesc% = IPN2220.ndi, PCI\VEN_17FE&DEV_2220&SUBSYS_03101468 ; INPROCOMM IPN2220 Wireless LAN Card

It is different.

OK, I found solution:

This driver works fine.

But that one on Toshiba website is incorrect.

That’s really strange.
This notebook model is so old and you are the first one with this problem.
According notebook specification it was delivered with WXP Home edition.

Do you use original recovery image you got with your notebook or you have installed own WXP version?
Can you confirm that WLAN card works with original preinstalled OS?

Anyway it is solved now but can you please tell us which error message was shown?

Driver on Toshiba website is dated 2008, so if there was no problem before as you are saying, I believe that previous version (prior to this 2008) was fine.

System is Windows XP Home Edition SP2, orginal Microsoft CD (not a recovery CD from Toshiba, as customer did not bring it with notebook), with serial number from notebook's orginal sticker.

The problem was: after installing driver from Toshiba website, wlan was still "Unknown Device" in Device Manager.

Also UPDATE DRIVER ->browse to location where driver files resided = no valid drivers in this location.

Drivers from HP forum pointing to Intel driver for 4220-intel-prowireless-2200bg = everything is OK :)

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. :)

Hmm. Interesting.

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.
