Satellite L100-108: Upgrade from Intel 3945 WLan to Intel 4965agn

Question: Satellite L100-108: Upgrade from Intel 3945 WLan to Intel 4965agn


It is possible to replace the wifi card that brought the Satellite L100-108 (Intel 3945ABG) for the one Intel 4965AGN?
Both cards are mini pci-e and the chipset on the motherboard (with the Everest says only that it is Toshiba), is the Intel i945GM.

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Satellite L100-108: Upgrade from Intel 3945 WLan to Intel 4965agn

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite L100-108: Upgrade from Intel 3945 WLan to Intel 4965agn


Why you want to upgrade the WLan card?
I mean the Intel 3945ABG provide three different WLan standards.
OK, the Intel 4965AGN provides the 802.11 N standard but this standard cannot be used because the WLan card would need 3 wire wlan antenna?
As far as I know the L100-108 has been equipped with two wires Wlan antenna which is designed for A B and G WLan standard.

The originally installed atheros wlan adapter is just b/g and too slow for my network/needs

So I bought a n-draft one: 4965agn mm1 (intel) (it has got a toshiba p/n and s/n too)

I replaced the atheros one and plugged in the Intel - booted and installed the drivers - reboot -> adaper works fine -> reboot - nb stops at the toshiba BIOS screen without loading any windows. i can't even get to BIOS -> removed Intel wlan adapter and nb boots as usual.

Please let me know what I'm supposed to do to make things work

I have a Sat P100-160 running Vista which has been pretty unstable since Day 1 with frequent Windows restarts citing BSOD. Sometimes it has suggested that the Intel driver was the issue, so when I got an upgrade advice from Toshiba I thought this might fix it.

I downloaded and expanded the contents, then ran IMDGinst.exe as advised. The system just ran and ran and hung up, finally telling me that it hadn't installed properly. This was all I could do.

I then went to Device manager to upgrade the driver by finding the file on my system. This seemed to work as I now have the right driver showing on the tab, but again did not actually completely run through the installation process, advising that program was not responding.

So now I don't know what I really have installed at all and the laptop is just as unpredictable as previously.

Any advice on how to proceed? I'm thinking that perhaps I should remove the driver using Device manager and then try to reinstall using the upgrade or search the internet for the right driver, but this might be an optimistic idea?

> So now I don't know what I really have installed at all and the laptop is just as unpredictable as previously.

In my opinion you should use delivered recovery media and install operating system again. Recovery image contains all drivers you need and you will have absolutely clean operating system. Use it for a while and please pay attention about BSOD.

To be honest I can not imagine that BSOD will occurs because recovery image is already tested and there is definitely no reason for BSOD (I presume there is no hardware malfunction).

I also have an ASIX AX88772A USB2.0 Fast Etherner Adapter as part of a Toshiba port replicator which works fine. I have clened the registry of all errors.

Answer:Satellite A300 - code 31 with Intel 4965AGN network adapter


What drivers have you reinstalled exactly? Normally if error code 31 appears in device manager it should be enough to reinstall only the driver. You can find it here: => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

You can install the driver if you go to device manager and select the WLAN card. Right click on it and select ?Update Driver?. Don?t forget to choose the advanced installation where you can choose the driver yourself.

Hi everyone,

I've recentlly bought a new WLAN card Intel 5300 (533AN_MMW) for my Satellite A200-1CG (PSAE3E...). I've installed a new card without any problem, downloaded and installed new (Win7) drivers too.
The problem is that the Wlan led does not lit at all. So I see that the card is normally working in device manager, but can not establish a wireless connection, because the device manager reports that the WLAN switch is switched off.

Anyone else have a problem where you can't spoof a mac in 7? (I've heard some people have the same problem in Vista) It works for me in XP on the same laptop, and works in Linux, but in W7 directly adding NetworkAddress key to the registry, or using a mac changing prog only works if the first pair of HEX is 0A or higher. It simply doesn't recognise 00 as the first pair (which is the value in most hardware adapters....). This makes it difficult to test IDS systems, firewalls, etc...

The MAC of the intel wired NIC on the same machine (in W7) changes just fine using all available methods.

Anyone found a solution to this, other than using 0A, etc? Is there an older driver (im using that works correctly? Or is this a W7/Vista + Intel issue?

what is the difference between the dell wireless 1390
and the intel 3945 cards?
i know the intel card will be the last piece of intel hardware that will put the centrino sticker on the laptop.
but is there any advantages performance wise compared to the dell 1390, more sensitivity/range anything like that besides the sticker?
I've heard that the dell uses broadcom, and broadcom is supposed to be pretty good.
and i've also heard that intel drops your connection alot because of the power savings feature it has.
is what i've heard true?

First off, Im not too knowledgable on Wireless networking, much less computers/internet so the solution to this escapes me.

My setup is a main desktop in the living room that runs on Broadband DSL which runs on 100.0 Mbps. Connected to that is a Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless-B Broadband Router. Then I have my dell Inspiron 9400 laptop with an Itel Pro Wireless 3945 (which I guess is a/b/g?)

I might be wrong about the 3945. It could be the same or different from what I'm looking at under Wireless connections which says:

Wireless network Connection
connected, Firewalled
Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network connections

Is that the same as an Intel Pro Wireless 3945?
I'm thinking I should have faster speeds than this but from what I've read, my problems would be either my router, the card in my computer or both. The signal my laptop receives only runs at 11.0 Mbps which is a bit slow for me.

Is there any way to boost the speeds up with what I have or do I have to replace either the router with a Wireless-G Broadband or the PCI?

I've also read that the PCI and the router type has to match. Is this true?

Again, forgive me if I made any mistakes in my breakdown of my equipment. Dealing with these are new to me.

Answer:Intel Pro Wirless 3945 or Wireless-B Broadband Router?

Your right that is your Laptop wireless.

No the router and the laptop's carddon't have to match brands but it does help in ensuring compatibility a little IMHO especially if your having wireless problems you can then go back to 1 company instead of having them play the pointing fingers game.

As far as yours running at 11 its because your router is only B you won't get higher than B speeds on a laptop with G if the router is only B since you can only go as fast as the SLOWEST component.

If you want it faster what you want to do is upgrade the router to G. The card should then start working at G speeds. The desktop uses a hardwire so this isn't even affected it should still hit the router at 100mb

Expericing random BSOD with Dell XPS M1330 Notebook.
BSOD occurs during web surfing, skype calls, idle, or bt downloading (basically, "random")

Using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit english - as far as I can tell all drivers are up-to-date. (used "drivermax" application to get a diagnostic, then went out to search for all individual drivers)

Install is OEM upgrade disc and did clean install from working XP pro on the machine

from my own testing nearly 99% sure it's the wireless acting up --reasons:
1) no BSOD occurs if i plug in an usb external wifi dongle or use the wired NIC
2) no BSOD occurs if i turn-off the on-board Intel wifi using the physical wifi on/off switch on the compter.
3) BSOD occurs randomly when on-board Intel wifi is on, no matter which power setting or action.

my laptop is a Dell XPS M1330

Answer:BSOD on Dell XPS M1330 -- poss. culprit Intel wifi 3945

It looks like you've done all the work for us! That's some nice troubleshooting!

Well, if the wifi is bad - then it's either the driver or the hardware. So, let's start with the driver (it's free, and it's easier than messing with the wifi card).

Download Intel wireless driver from Intel ( )
Uninstall the current Intel wireless driver from your Dell
Install the freshly downloaded driver and see if the BSOD's stop.

Running the dump files, will be right back.....

I think you used simply a not compatible WLan card?

As far as I know the notebook has been already equipped with a miniPCI WLan card and according to your posting the notebook is running properly using the previous WLan card?

If you want to solve this issue -> use the supported WLan card!

Do you have a minPCI WLan slot at the bottom of the unit?
If yes, then a minPCI WLan card upgrade could be possible.
From my knowledge you could also use the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG WLan card.

The Wlan card must be connect to the WLan antenna. The two antenna cables must be connected as follows;
The white cable must be connected to main and the black cable to aux.

Hi All,

New to the forum, so hello.

Got given this laptop by my son-in-law as he got a new one. Fitted a hybrid drive and a clean install of Win 10 without too many issues. I wanted to upgrade the centrino wifi+bluetooth to a newer card and use my 5GHz at home because 2.4Ghz is too slow. Got the card, installed it - default drivers were installed and it said device was working, but no connection.

Did some reading online - tried the tape over pin 20 but that didn't seem to work. Couldn't find anyway of turning the wifi adaptor on.

I've put the old card back in for now. The Fn key works with the old one, but didn't work with the new one, so I'm wondering if this is the "whitelist" issue where this new card isn't supported in the BIOS. As far as I could tell the new card is the same form factor etc so should work.

Anyone got any ideas?

However, i am uncertain if the bios will accept this.
The card i would like to install is a Intel n-6230. However, can't establish it would be ok.

Does anyone have any idea if the device would accept this?
All help much appreciated. Link below ducts_id=19782

Answer:NB 550D - Intel n-6230 WLan upgrade question

>Does anyone have any idea if the device would accept this?

I think this is a point where nobody could be able to provide an 100% right answer?
Since there are no inforamtions what devices would be supported and recognized by BIOS, we can just assume about the compatibility?

Found more details here:

As far as I know the NB550D series was equipped with different Wlan cards
?? Atheros 802.11(b/g)13ch-HB95 MOW-HMC
?? Atheros 802.11(a/g/n)13ch-HB116 MOW-HMC
?? Realtek 802.11(b/g/n)13ch-RTL8188CE MOW-HMC
?? Atheros 802.11(b/g/n)WB195-HMC w/ BT V3.0+HS
?? Atheros 802.11(b/g)WB195-HMC w/ BT V3.0+HS

So these Wlan card would be compatible for sure...
The Intel N-6230 is an mini PCI-E Wlan card and the notebook supports the PCI-E slot so theoretically it should functions.

I recently installed a new wifi card into my laptop in order to give it dual-band support.

However, although everything went good in regards to hardware and installing drivers, the computer fails to actually use the wifi card, and insists that the card is "off", even though it's enabled in the device manager, the computer recognizes it, and the computer is not on airplane mode.

There is no physical switch on the laptop or the card, the function key does nothing (except flip between airplane mode and not-working mode), and even the diagnostics insist that I need to "enable wireless capability".


Answer:New Intel 6300 Wlan card does not work in Satellite P850/49

Not quite sure if you would be able to get this card working.
In many cases new modules and hardware parts don?t work because of the compatibility issues. Even if the module supports an mini PCI standard, this does not mean that all mini PCI Wlan card would be compatible. This is a big misapprehension.

However, I found some interesting tips on the Intel page:

What you could do is this:
In Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections, right-click on the adapter. Check if the adapter can be enabled there.

You can also try to install the Intel? PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility
You can turn on or off the WiFi radio at the Intel? PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility main window. The status icon on main window displays the current state of the radio. At the main window, click WiFi On or WiFi Off to turn the radio on or off.

In case this would not work, I assume the notebook cannot enable the Wlan card due to the different pin assignment.
For example some mini PCI WLan cards needs to mask the pin 20 (thin strip of electrical tape and stuck it over pin 20) in order to get it enabled.
Search on Google for mini pcie pin 20, and you will find that you are not the only ones with this type problem.

If you want to update the WLan driver then visit either the Toshiba Wlan driver page or the Intel page.

You can visit the Toshiba European driver page and there you can check what newer drivers have been released.

Dear Toshiba forum members.
First excuse me for my poor English because my native language is Dutch.

I have recently bought my third Toshiba notebook A Satellite R850-18W.

I already bought a replacement wlan adapter for the original Atheros AR9002WB adapter.
Changing the the adapter in the notebook is easy, I have already done that.

The only problem is, I couldn't get bluetooth working so I put the original Atheros adapter back in my Satellite R850. Everything is working, wifi and bluetooth.

But I want to buy a router with 5ghz band possibility and take advantage of the speed en less crowed 5ghz band. That's why I bought the Intel centrino 6235 adapter.

I need help in which steps to follow to get everything working like it should.

Which software do I need to un-install to avoid problems.
Do I need to un-install the drivers of the Atheros adapter first?

I think and hope it should be possible to make such a minor change in configuration of this notebook?

I guess there isn't an easy way although Toshiba has also notebooks were they use the Intel centrino advanced-N 6235 adapter. I was kind of hoping on an easy software install of drivers and the Toshiba connection software.

Hope anyone can help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite R850-18W: Replacement of Wlan card with Intel centrino 6235


Not quite sure if you will be able to use this Intel Centrino WLan card.
There is a similar threads about the Intel Centrino Advanced n 6230 and the other user could not enable this card

Therefore I recommend talking to your dealer if it?s possible to return this kind of WLan card if there would be an compatibility problem.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 3000-514 and an Intel Centrino Mini-PCI WLan card. (Intel??????® PRO/Wireless 2200BG) Running win-XP and Ubuntu on it.

Is there a solution to sidestep the problem, that the wlan-software wants me to push a hardware-button to activate wireless lan, that my Laptop just don't have?

In a german forum someone mentioned solving the problem by using "easy button", a program I already downloaded from Toshiba.
But you can only choose .exe files to be connected to a button. Is there an .exe file to make the software think I pushed that not existion wlan-hardwarebutton?

*sigh* Help!?

Thanks in advance. Sorry for my bad english.

Answer:Satellite 3000-514: How to activate Intel WLan 2200BG hardware button


sounds tricky. I have no software solution for you, but I have an alternative solution for you.

Since you are a german guy, you can check/read this:
W0QQitemZ250170200040QQihZ015QQcategoryZ79551QQssP ageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem]

It?s an atheros card like I have in my Tecra 9100. So, I had many many problems with intel card since they require a full working centrino
platform to work and so most of these cards need a "hardware" switch (in your case a button) to work.

With the atheros card you don?t have these problems with switch/button since they are working anytime without need of switches or buttons.
The disadvantage is that you cannot disable the card for power saving purposes.

So I hope I could help you. Would appreciate some feedback. :)

Nice weekend.

Hi,I just bought a new Intel 7260 AC mSata wifi card from an IT shop to my Lenovo ThinkPad E540. ( not alibaba, ebay... ) When I pluged into the mSata slot the laptop did not started, showed only one BIOS error message:"1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in .....System is halted"I googled a bit this error and it said that my wifi card is "not genuine" ?How can I decide if a card is working with my laptop or it will not ?I do not have any databases with VendorIDs, FRU part numbers and BIOS ids to any card to match them.And why I can not use any mSata wifi card ?Why Lenovo laptops must have BIOS whitelist for hardwares ?Pictures about my new wifi card:

I've installed the Intel Centrino 6230 WLAN card in to my wife's Toshiba Satellite L655 laptop (it was intended for my HP laptop but because of their whitelist it won't boot... but that's another story).

The wifi works a treat, and I'm pulling in speeds of just over 100mb/s ( connecting to my dual band router at 5GHz.

I understand this card also has Bluetooth capabilities and I think this is where my problem originates from.

I keep getting a warning balloon appear in the system tray saying "USB device not recognised" (

I've followed various supposed fixes, including removing the drivers, as you can see from the picture I've already done that. As I'm running Windows 8 Pro 64bit as soon as I restart the WLAN driver is automatically re-installed.

I've tried installing the drivers multiple times but I still get the error message as below:-

I'm looking for one of 2 solutions.

1. Get the device working properly - Bluetooth & Wifi - did Toshiba ever do drivers for the 6230?
2. Disable the USB balloon, I can do this as a one off but as soon as I reboot it's back bugging me!

Any help is gratefully appreciated.

Answer:Intel WLan 6230 USB device not recognized in Satellite L655 running Win8

I had to install the drivers from the Intel webpage but everything works fine. In case it helps anyone I've added the system info from my wife's Toshiba and my old Acer from HWINFO.

I'm stuck for ideas now!

In the meantime I've ordered for ?6 !!!

I have a T61 running XP with the Intel 4965AGN WiFi adapter.  I am connecting to an AirLink 101 300N router configured as WPA2 PSK with AES encription to support 300 Mbps connections.  My wife's desktop connects at 300Mbps using an AirLink 101 300N USB adapter, and my old T21 connects at 300Mbps using and Airlink 101 300N cardbus adapter.  The Intel adapter doc implies it should work at 300Mbps, but connects at 150Mbps. I have looked at the driver parameters and installed the latest Intel drivers from the Lenovo site.  Any suggestions on what I can do to get the Intel 4965AGN to connect at 300Mbps.

Answer:Connection speed on Intel 4965AGN

eghuff wrote: I am connecting to an AirLink 101 300N router . Your Airlink operates only in the 2.4~2.5GHz WiFi band.  A fully 802.11n Draft 2 compliant device, like the Intel 4965AGN, will only connect at ~270Mps for devices which support operation in the 5GHz WiFi band. When running in the 2.4~2.5GHz WiFi band they will only connect at ~130Mbps. If you want to achieve ~270Mbps connections with fully 802.11n Draft 2 compliant devices you need a router which supports 5Ghz band operation, or supports dual band operation in both 2.4Ghz and 5GHz WiFi bands. Running 40Mhz bonded channels in the 2.4~2.5GHz WiFi band to achieve ~270Mbps operation is generally problematic and it is prone to have mutual interference with 802.11b/g WiFi traffic in the vicinity.  Cheers, Bill

Did not find any details about the compatibility with this unit and therefore I don’t think that someone will be able to provide your precise information about the compatibility…

Mostly the compatibility depends on the BIOS… so in case the BIOS would be able to handle the module, the OS should recognize it properly…

So I guess you will need to try it out…

Hi Walterh7, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
If you at any time you get more than 54Mbps, you have a 4965AGN.
To get the fastest speeds you need to set WPA2 AES-only.
At short range you should get 130Mbps at 2.4GHz, or 300Mbps at 5GHz.

if it is not from Lenovo/IBM parts bin, then you will get an error during the bootup or it wont be recognised. So remember that when you change your parts, also it may avoid your warranty if anything happens, the card is not a customer replaceable unit.

Channel width is "Auto". I have tried the router with both 20 and 40... now set at 40.

Welcome to the forum! My guess is that you're trying to install a generic Intel card, and this will not work in a ThinkPad, since the BIOS detects it and blocks the boot with the message you've encountered. Only IBM/Lenovo approved cards (with a FRU number on them) will work without triggering the error message.

After installing Win7 Prof x64 everything with WiFi was working correctly. Yesterday I wanted to try Vista x64 driver with Connection Utility. In the device manager it shows that device is working corectly but in fact it is not working at all. Uninstalling connection utility didn't help and windows cannot find any driver at the HDD or in windows update.

Any idea what could be done to fix it?


Answer:Problem with Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

Hi,When I purchase T61 and start working on WiFi it was quiet good, real transfers big files around 6MB/s. So it was nice even with WEP2 encryption.Then I update my system through TV and my problem starts. Transfer beneath 1MB/s. So I start messing with drivers and its help for a while.Now I am back to slow connection and I've try every thing I can think about(reinstall sys VISTA  included) On new system I install new drivers from Lenovo and it is not working. It looks like the WiFi link freeze for a while and the starts again an so on like that. I have all parameters on high or aggressive or max performance, it do not help much. Any one some idea? Ah! I should add. I do not use Access ControlMessage Edited by gonzo111 on 03-17-2009 07:07 AM

Greetings all! I have a Lenovo X61s that I purchased, and I have decided to upgrade the wireless card in it so that I can use the 802.11n that I have at home. When I installed the new adapter in the Mini-PCIe slot and restarted the device I got an error message saying the the card was not supported and had to be removed.  Per the X61 matrix ( the 4965AGN is supported.  Has anyone else seen this? Regards,TC Labby


Go to Solution.

Answer:X61s will not accept Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

The BIOS has a whitelist of supported wireless cards. You need a Lenovo branded 4965agn card or else the BIOS will not allow you to boot the computer until you remove the card. The Intel 4965agn wireless card you are looking for is the FRU 42T0865.

Recently, I found my Intel 4965agn wireless lan adapter on my T61 laptop automatically disabled after I connected to the public wireless network (no password required) in my university. Sometimes it could work for 3-4 hours, but sometimes it could only survive for few minutes.When the adapter was disabled, I cannot start it in any way except restart my laptop.But this phenomenon never happened in my apartment, where the wireless network has a password requirement.Anybody has the same experience or any solution? Thanks. BTW, My T61 is 7662-CTO. This problem happened on both Vista Ultimate 32x and XP SP3.Message Edited by musicx on 03-02-2009 11:19 AM

Answer:[Problem] Intel Wireless Card 4965agn Disabled for NO reason

Same problem... I've had this issue and reported it many times with no results from Lenovo or IBM. My card is an intel 3945ABG, and the same issue - not  problem on some networks and a disaster at school (many access points and a WPA-Enterprise security). I have taken out access connections and tried the intel pro wireless software.. while it hasn't fixed the problem, it's better. About once a week my card just turns off - disables itself somehow. The light goes out, and it disables itself in the device mangler (red x) but I can't re-enable it, the device manager just crashes. If I flick the Wifi switch, nothing, click enable in the pro wireless software, nothing. I have unchecked the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" everything....  Someone from Lenovo, please give us an answer about this... I think this happens on most computers (all 4 thinkpads in my class have this issues), just rarely enough that no one complains. Is this a firmware issue? a irq issue? What do you need to solve this? whiteatom

Type: 7764-CTO S/N: L3-xxxxx OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Driver version: In a nutshell, my WiFi has stopped working overnight; that is, it had been working flawlessly for more than a year, and one day when I woke up it decided to quit. Here's what happens when I turn the radio on now: it will scan for APs as usual, but only report a fraction of the list as it used to - it may not report even the preferred APs, which it had no problems connecting to before - and never make a connection. On some rare occasions, it might be successful at making a connection, but the connection would be reported as limited (i.e. no Internet access) and it would not stay connected for more than a few seconds. 90% of the time the 802.11 radio would try connecting, fail, and power off. Here's what I have tried: I have tried updating to the latest driver, as well as reverting back to the Windows 7 bundled driver. I have tried making connections to several working networks (e.g. friend's home, office, cafes, etc) to rule out my router being the source of the problem. I have also tried running the Ubuntu LiveCD to see if it would work under a different OS. Obviously, nothing has worked. For those who are curious, ethernet connection is working fine. I'm leaning toward it being a hardware failure. Does anyone have other thoughts and perhaps even a solution?

here's all my specs before i get into the issue:

OS: vista home premium, 32 bit
wireless card: intel 4965AGN
laptop: inspiron 1520
processor: intel core 2 duo CPU T7100 @ 1.60GHz
no recent crashes to cause the problem, and i haven't been using much anti-spyware other than mcafee security center.

allrighty then, i don't know if that's enough information about the hardware or not. here's my problem, as detailed as i can manage:

my wireless seems really inferior to other computers. i'm right now in about the middle of my campus, UT austin, and i get disconnected from the wireless intermittently. just sitting here i've been disconnected 4 or 5 times over the past 40 minutes or so. in my apartment, they have their own isp, namely Airimba wireless. lots of times i won't be able to get onto the wireless (connect to the router). i just spent 35 minutes talking to a dell support technician, and basically he had me delete all my saved network connections and reboot the computer. problem not solved. it has been suggested to me that perhaps this is a hardware problem; the dell technician basically said vista might be causing the flakiness. one of my huge freshman classes is in a theatre, and i see people around me surfing the web, but i can't get a connection. it happens in certain class rooms too, where others get a connection, but the gods don't favor me.

Answer:wireless help; vista, intel 4965AGN card, inspiron 1520

Hi andrestable

If you are currently using any flavor of the "ACM" (Arimba Connection Manager) software, I'd recommend uninstalling it.

I'd also recommend uninstalling your current driver for your Intel wireless adapter, and then installing this Vista driver set directly from Dell. It's from mid-November of 2007, only nine weeks ago or so, and might help --- --- follow the setup instructions as prompted. (*Note that the initial installation instructions are on the same webpage as the download*).

Once you have that package installed, test your connections. Should you continue to have difficulty, there is a wireless patch specifically for your model, and specifically for your wireless adapter: ---

I think that the 2nd patch has an excellent chance of helping significantly.

Remember, that when you are setting up your connections, you won't be choosing Ad Hoc, but Infrastructure. Your connections should also be enabled for Mixed modes, as the Arimba device is a 802.11b device, whereas other WiFi on campus is likely to be 802.11g. Your Intel adapter is able to do all four currently available 802.11 modes --- a/b/g/n.

To the networks that you most often connect to, you can set your laptop to automatically detect. Whether you connect using Vista's builtin Wireless utility, or use an Intel tool included in the driver download, you... Read more

Hi everyone!

I've recently did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate onto my Toshiba Satellite U400 laptop. For the most part I was online with a wired connection, and when I finally went to wireless, I started getting BSODs.

This SAME behaviour happened to me when I had Vista Home Premium SP2 installed before hand. I tried Ubuntu linux for a while and the wifi worked fine! (so maybe not a hardware issue? but a driver issue?)

I can make the BSOD repeatedly when flipping through picture albums on facebook for example. I have attached the debugging files in the hopes that someone with more technical knowledge can help me. I look forward to solving this problem once and for is very frustrating

Answer:[SOLVED] Windows 7 Ultimate BSOD when on Wifi (Intel 4965agn)

Hi -

I am finding 2 basic bugchecks in the dumps submitted -

0x9f - a driver is in an inconsistent power state
0x19 - bad pool header - the pool was already corrupted when the caller arrived

Ironically, both Intel wifi and your Ethernet drivers were named as the probable causes; I believe the Toshiba driver and webcam driver may be the real culprit(s) here -

TVALZ_O.SYS Thu Nov 08 19:07:46 2007 (4733CF02) - Toshiba
UVCFTR_S.SYS Thu Jun 26 01:25:19 2008 (4863526F) - Webcam driver

yk62x86.sys Mon Feb 23 06:44:18 2009 (49A2B642) - Marvel Yukon Ethernet
netw5v32.sys Thu Mar 26 09:10:37 2009 (49CBA8FD) - Intel wifi 5100/4965/39xx

The Marvel Yukon & Intel wifi drivers look fine to me. I suggest that you go after the Toshiba driver 1st, then the webcam driver -- check Toshiba for updates. If none, you'll have to disable the services related to them/ un-install the devices. The 1st w/ 2007 timestamp has caused problems in Vista and would most certainly do the same in Windows 7.

I bought an Inspiron 1420 for 640$ shipped or so from Dell last month and now I've been using it at my school campus.

It has a Intel 4965AGN Wireless-N Mini Card and the network says it's 300 Mbps connection here but at times when I'm using the internet, it would be slower than AOL!

I did a speakeasy speed test and got

20k kbps and upload 28 kbps

A few minutes later I did speakeasy test again and got about same but upload speed went to 4kbps.

what is going on here?

Answer:Intel 4965AGN Wireless Card Slow? Inspiron 1420

Max speed the card supports != Speed of the wireless network your connected to.

Sounds like the campus network is the limiting factor, not your card. Heck, I would imagine that quite a few people (and maybe a handful of bandwidth hogs) are online at the same time.

And yes, I have the same network card in my laptop though I've only achieved ~130Mbps, which seems normal to me.

edit: Have you tried connecting to any other wireless networks besides your campus?

I have an R61 ThinkPad with 4 gig RAM, Vista 64, T9300, and the Intel 4965AGN wireless network card. The 4965 can connect to the wireless network (WPA2-AES), browse the web, download files, etc. The problem is the network card dies when attempting to copy large files on the network. The status light blinks, and then about 30 seconds into the copy, the light goes solid and the connection is dead. No repair connection efforts succeed. The only cure is to reboot.I have tried the drivers at the Intel and Lenovo sites. Each has slightly different results, but all result in the 4965 becoming non-responsive. I have completely uninstalled drivers when switching between the different versions. I have tried driver only and driver/software installs with no success.There are 3 other wireless computers on the network that can copy without a problem. The router is an N router. The other computers have G connections.What is the problem? More important, what is the solution? Bad card? (I received the notebook recently, and this has never worked.)

Answer:Intel 4965AGN Wireless Networking Crashing on Large Transfers

kamiller42, welcome to the forum,
I don't have a Vista TP with me at the moment, so you might have to look around a little for the following settings.
It sounds as though this could be a power management problem. If you are using Access Connections you need to ensure that in each profile you have best network performance selected in Wireless Settings / Further Settings.
There are also power management settings in Network Devices and in Device Manager, (advanced properties of adapter), which you should change as well to ensure that Windows cannot reduce power to, or turn the adapter off.

Hello all,

I purchased a Sat L100-179 laptop about 2.5 yrs ago without wireless lan.
So last week I purchased a Inter(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection, this is a internal card!

I installed the card along with the latest drivers and the card was working properly according to device manager
When I tried to use the card after setting the wireless settings I began to have problems.

I then installed the software for the card to help with the problem which was Intel(R) PROSet/Wirless WiFi Software which gave me a little more info to the problem. All settings for wifi are enabled except when I press Fn + F8 I get the following message:

Wireless communication is disabled. Please turn on the wirless switch.

But there is no switch on the side of the laptop just a blank cover cap.
I have run out of ideas to get this working and would really appreciate some help.
My OS is XP home service pack 3.

Answer:Re: Satellite L100-179 Cannot enable new inserted WLan card


I think your Sat L100-179 is not WLan upgradable.
If this notebook has been delivered without the WLan card and if the WLan switch does not exist then you cannot use an internal WLan card!

In such case you have to switch to an external solution like an USB WLan stick for example

As many others, I found that my new out of the box T61 was unable to connect to wireless routers.  After some troubleshooting, I found the problem was the power management property for the wireless card was set to low. I have my laptop power settings set to maximum performance both on the battery and when plugged in. Still, every time I reboot or come out of standby, I find I can't connect to the internet and when I go to the device manager and check, I find that the Power Management property is set back to low for my Intel 4965AGN wireless card.  This happens with the "use default value" unchecked and also with it checked.  The transmit power property always stays on high though. So, yes, I can get the wireless working by manually changing this every time I start up or come out of standby, but how do I force the power management property to stay on a high setting and not keep resetting to low?  What other software has the power to keep resetting this value, and can I stop it? I am currently using the Thinkvantage Power Manager, but I have uninstalled the Access Connections software as I found it to be entirely too frustrating for my use.  (perhaps part of that early experienced frustration was due to this power management issue)  I manage my wireless networks using XP network connections.  I've had my laptop for about 4 days now.  I absolutely love it, but this and a few other hardware issues continue to plague...

Thank you

Answer:Satellite A100 - Upgrading WIFI card from Intel 3945ABG to Intel 5300AGN

Don?t think that someone can give you a proper answer since the compatibility depends on the BIOS?
If the BIOS would support the new WLan card, then you could use it for sure?

The point is that motherboards is able to handle the miniPCI WLan cards? the module is just plugged to the miniPCI slot and its removable?
So there is just an question regarding the BIOS support and I?m afraid you will need to test this at your own risk

Those drivers from Toshiba site to this Satellite L300-B13 don't work fine for me when using external display (bluescreen and other ).

So, can I fix the Intel drivers to install on my compyter? Toshibas OEM windows Vista doesn't allow me to install them.

Answer:Satellite L300-B13 - Can I install Intel graphic driver from Intel page?

The non-Toshiba drivers can be used ONLY at your own risk.
So it?s your choice if you want to use such drivers.

But installation is possible only from the device manager. You have to download the driver package firstly and then you have to update the driver from the device manger.
Then choose ?Advanced? installation and point to the driver which you have downloaded!

Hi, I have an X61 with Vista Business 32bits and the Wireless card (Intel Wifi 4965AGN) does not work anymore. Here is the chronology of events: - A few days ago I realized that the Fn+F5 hot key was not working.- I tried to solve this problem by uninstalling the Intel wifi driver and reinstalling.- Uninstall was OK. When I restarted the computer, the system automatically detected the Wifi card as new hardware and tried to install the driver, but I got an error message "Unable to open the driver specific registry key for this device".- I have tried to uninstall and install the driver several times but I have been unable to fix the problem.- I have downloaded the latest driver from the Intel and Lenovo websites but the problem persists.- When I access the device manager there is an exclamation point on the Wifi4965AGN. If i try to update driver it returns a message saying thatthe driver is up to date.- I have tried to recover the system from the last backup point but when the system restarts it says that there was an undetermined error in the recovery and that it didn't happen. It seems like there is something wrong in my Windows registry but I don't know enough to solve it. It doesn't seem like a big problem because I actually created it by trying to fix the Fn+F5 problem so I should be able to solve it! Any ideas before I reinstall Windows? 

Answer:X61 Vista32: Cannot install driver for Intel Wifi 4965AGN (unable to open registry key)

You may want to check the following again just to be sure everything was done 1) Make sure the correct driver for Intel Wifi 4965 AGN is installed (Do you have XP or Vista?)2) Use System Restore (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Systems Tools -> System Restore) to rollback your settings to an earlier calendar date prior to the  time the issue has occurred. Were you trying to restore using Microsoft's System Restore, or using the Rescue and Recovery tool? If this fails, you may need to reload Windows.Power off, then power on and tap F11 repeately to access Rescue and Recovery from our recovery partition.  Hope this helps, Mark

Answer:Can i upgrade proc intel core 2 duo E4500 lga775 to intel xeon e5450 (hard mod) lga771

The response of the system (no-boot with the Xeon CPU aboard) is your answer:  NO.  This system won't take that CPU.
Since the system won't boot with the Xeon CPU aboard, it matters not which OS you plan to run.

Hi all, I have a Thinkpad T40 2373 94U originally equipped with XP Pro and wireless Intel Pro 2100 (Wireless B 11mpbs) FRU 91P7267. I searched online and looks like it is upgradable to wireless G 54mbps so I bought off ebay an Intel Pro 2200BG Part Number 39T0077 (used). It fits nicely and works fine. The problem is the bandwidth speed (internet). My ISP is FIOS 20 mbps download and 5 mbps upload. Using the old 2100 card tested with I can get around 10mbps download and 4mbps upload. However, the new 2200BG card can only get around 8mbps download and 5mpbs upload. I have the latest BIOS and latest 2200BG wireless driver from Intel (version Is there anything I can do to speed it up? Or maybe the card is not compatible with my T40? Thanks in advance for any help!Message Edited by zaina on 12-17-2008 10:41 AM

Answer:Thinkpad T40 wireless upgrade from Intel Pro 2100 to Intel Pro 2200BG

Well a quick update... I just reinstall the old 2100 card and tested, it is now getting 4.5 mbps download and 4.5mbps upload. Using the ethernet I can get close to 20/5. Strange... now I'm not so sure that if I ever get 10 mbps download before (using the old one)....

We would need to know the exact model number but I am sure there is no processor available that would run at 3.2 ghz or higher on any version fo the HP g6. In some cases the processor is not replaceable at all.

Ok, here we go with my first posting. I have bought a Satellite Pro M70, about a year ago. It has a graphics chip (intel gtl 950?!), i just would like to know, if it is possible to install a graphics card, like ati or nvidia's.

By the way, is it possible to upgrade the cpu? and how about warranty if upgrading and installing all that stuff?

Answer:How to upgrade Intel graphic/CPU on Satellite Pro M70

Here I go with my first answer to you ;)

No, it?s not possible. The notebook technology is different as the desktop PCs and therefore you will be not able to upgrade the graphic card.

I have a HP ProBook 6550b and it currently has a Intel i5-460m and I know that the Intel Core i7-620M will work since it's on the choice of CPU I can get if I wanted a better notebook from this model but just wanted to make sure I can just replace it and it will work fine? I do have the latest BIOS and Windows 7 Pro 64 bit updates. The CPU does look like it can be reaplced and also this is a business type notebook so I' am sure it will work. But I do want to know what others think and if they done upgrades on the ProBook like the 6550b.

Answer:Can I upgrade my CPU from Intel i5-460M to Intel Core i7-620...

HI. Here I leave the comparison between the two, draw their conclusions, if we look at the speed d relog that is what matters, among other things, Significantly higher clock speed I7 -3.33GHz vs I5 -2.8 GHz in this sense is something significant, something else Is that in conjunction with the other hardware components you will not notice. Regards.

I have Satellite L655-149 Satellite. Can I replace the processor from Core i5 to Core i7 and how?

Thank you.

Answer:Satellite L655-149 - Can I upgrade from Intel Core i5 to i7?


Theoretically you can upgrade the CPU but if you do this you will loose your warranty and everything happens on your own risk. Furthermore it?s not supported from Toshiba that means nobody can say if the new CPU would work properly or not.
