Wireless Problem

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite 1415-S105, and reinstalled the operating system.

I have gotten everything to work with installing the drivers, except the wireless which seems to be detected in device manager, however I am unable to install the drivers for it. When running the setup for the drivers it says that it was successful on installing. But it doesn't work and device manager still detects a Ethernet controller.

The driver package I'm using I found on some driver site, because Toshiba does not have the 1415-s105 listed.

Anyway the package I'm using was said to be compatible with that model number. it's called "s193wlanx.exe"

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

The driver for your wireless adapter can be found HERE, which is from the Toshiba website. I did a google search for '1415-S105 wireless driver site:toshiba.com' without the apostrophes of course.

Give it a try and see if the outcome is the same.

When you ran that file, did it extract the files somewhere? If so, go into the Device Manager and right-click your wireless device and choose UPDATE DRIVER and make it search in the folder where the files were extracted to.

I tried that aswell a little while ago, it didn't work either. :/

After extracting the files and telling it to look in that directory it just came up with the same thing it tells me when it searches online for drivers, that it couldn't be installed.

Problem solved, found out from the seller that he upgraded the wireless card. Found the correct drivers by looking at the chipset name, and DL the drivers it works perfect now.

Thanks for everyones help on trying to help me solve this problem.
