I can't find anything on a Protege M570 on the Toshiba web site. Is there a different model number anywhere on the laptop?

Hello griruco

How are you trying to connect to the internet as in wireless or ethernet?

You may need to download the drivers on another computer, save them to a thumb drive or burn them to disk and then install them from there.

XP drivers are available from the same link, all drivers http://toshiba-id.bl...-windows-7.html
WLAN drivers https://aps.toshiba-...?page=downloads

NB: If you have not done so already ensure that you install the chipset drivers first.

If I may offer some slight assistance for a moment, what we need here Gregg is the S number that follows the M750 as shown in this shot.

The model is a Portege m750-s7201 to be accurate, thanks for the help, Wolfeymole!

I'm not sure if this link will work.


Edit: No it doesn't so go here and click on Downloads and the link for your machine.

Make sure that XP or XP SP 2/SP3 is in the "Refine Search By" box and scroll down to the LAN driver.

The 08-18-2009 LAN driver is what you need. This is the link to the actual download on that page: driver_lan_intel_TC00231100A.exe

When I downloaded it, this is what I got:

If I remember correctly XP does not possess any decompression software as standard so download the .exe file in the very top box which says 7 - Zip for 32bit windows and run it.

Once you have done so you will be able to unzip the file from Toshiba.

It's a self extracting .exe, no unzipper needed. When I run it under Windows 8 and XP, this is the window I get:

griruco, can you run any .exe programs?

The program freezes every time the self-extractor attempts to extract the program, so I never get to the point of running the program itself, window just sits on the extracting file screen and never progresses past that.

Thanks

It is self-extracting and doesn't need an unzipper. I tried anyway. No luck.
Any other ideas?
