Preferred Solution: Satellite L500-131 - WLan driver for Win 7?

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 L500-131 - WLan driver for Win 7?

Hey Andy,

Yes, normally the Vista drivers are also work on Windows 7 so it's worth a try! ;)

What WLAN card you have exactly? Maybe you can find a driver directly on the manufactures website, e. g. Intel or Realtek.

I currently own a l500-128 with windows 7 32 bits and I would like to know how you can turn off wireless in Windows instead of BIOS. Because I am using a clean installation I don't have any tools installed from toshiba so I don't know which software I need to use.

Second, I am wondering what the last 2 bios updates included. I have seen no improvement in performance so far, so I would like to know what was fixed.

Thank you in advanced.

Answer:Satellite L500-128 - How to turn off WLAN?


1)May I ask you if you did read the user manual?
You can turn off WLAN using the hardware switch on the notebook. You can also disable WLAN using FN+F8 key combination but therefore the Value Added Package must be installed.

2)I never noticed that BIOS updates improve the performance. Normally they fix only some problems and if you can?t find a change log on the Toshiba website there is no available.

I have the Toshiba Satellite L500 and it has Windows 7. It has an internal wireless switch or something and I?ve asked several people and they all say the same thing you can turn on the wireless with BIOS or using FN+F8 but I turned it on in BIOS and the light on the front of the laptop indicating wireless on is not lit and when I try the Fn key and F8 every other tab shows up except the wireless.

This is getting me angry I almost want to take the laptop and bring it back although it is a great laptop but without wireless I am not interested.

Please help me solve this problem!

Answer:How to turn ON WLAN on my Satellite L500?

Please check device manager and be sure WLAN card is installed and enabled properly.
If the card is enabled properly all you must do is to use FN+F8 key combination.

Please note: if no wireless communication device is installed, no dialog box will appear using FN+F8.

This problem started earlier today and I cannot seem to find a way to solve it.

When I use the FN key on the laptop the function menu will no longer appear so I am unable to turn my wireless back on which is the only thing I use the function menu for..

Are there any solutions to this problem or simple a way to turn on my wireless without using the function menu?

This isn't software issue - this button should work before start any kind of system but don't work. I tried everything including BIOS update. Card works properly but cannot turn on wifi :(.
Anyone can provide other solution than changing card?

I reinstaled Value added Package and Flash card support utility - fn panel works but buton f8 is gone.
I tested with another mnipcie card and have same problem - cannot turn on wifi - fn+f8 did not work

Answer:Re: Satellite L500 -19E and WLan Mini PCI Adapter

According notebook specification your notebook has Realtek 802.11bgn RTL8191SE MiniCard and using standard n you should be able to reach very good data transfer speed and I don?t think WLAN card replacement is necessary.

Have you checked all WLAN settings and tested WLAN functionality with your new FritzBox 7390?

The wifi card died in my toshiba satellite earlier this week, its out of warranty and the toshiba shop wants $200 to replace it with a standard 2.4ghz card.

I have been looking at upgrading it to a 5ghz capable card anyway.
I have found a card which looks good.
I am wondering if my laptop will support it?

The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L500-o1u012 and the old card was a Realtek RTL8191SE Wirelss LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC half size mini pcie card.

Answer:New WLan card for Satellite L500-01u012

The description says:

+Killer Wireless-N 1103 adapters support dual bands (2.4 GHz and 5GHz), 3-Stream MIMO and IEEE standards-based 802.11a/b/g/n in a half-size mini-PCIe form factor.+

So it?s a mini-PCI card and in my opinion, the WLan card should be compatible? theoretically?

Should my WLAN indicator be glowing orange on my new laptop? Nothing in the manual tells me what colour it should be, but my instincts naturally assume that it should be green like the other indicators. The wireless connection is fine to the netrouter, but I would like assurance that this is OK.



Answer:WLAN led indicator on Satellite L500 is glowing orange - is this OK?

Yes, my WLan led is shining orange too and my notebook is Satellite U400.
I assume is ok because there are no different led colors which could provide different WLan status? either it?s on or off?

Hmm?. the Win 7 drivers are not released yet? but I found some beta drives on the Toshiba US page:

Maybe you will find some Win 7 drivers for L500/505 series?

Otherwise I would recommend to check if you could enable the WLan in device manager -> Wlan card properties -> Advanced tab?

There are some additional options? maybe the Wlan On/Off would be there too.

The Windows 7 RC's device manager doesn't recognize my Wireless Network Adaptater (e.g. : Atheros, Intel, or Realtek). I tried to install all the drivers from Toshiba support, but none of them work :

After installation, they ask me to plug the device on my computer (of course it is yet on the mainboard !).

=> Is there a way to know what is my Wifi adaptater ?

that one failed : (it's only say "network adaptateur" with a yellow exclamation mark).

=> Does anybody know when Windows 7 Drivers will be released on the website ?

Answer:Satellite L500 13z - Windows 7 doesn't recognize WLAN adapter


Before you start to install all WLAN drivers that you can find on the Toshiba website you should make sure that WLAN card you have exactly. You can check this in device manager => properties => Details of WLAN card.
There you should an information like PCI\VEN_XXXX & DEV_XXXX

If you have founded this information you search with these terms on this website to determine the exact WLAN card:

After this you can download the correct driver for your notebook. Before you install it you should uninstall all other versions and restart the notebook.
Make also sure that WLAN is enabled with the hardware switch and FN+F8.

I have updatet my Toshiba Satellite L500-20X to Windows 8.
Unfortunately, since this update my WLAN Switch no longer works. All function keys work to F7, only F8 (WLAN switch) and F9 (touchpad) no longer work.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

Answer:Satellite L500-20X - WLAN switch doesn't work after Windows 8 Upgrade

Satellite L500 is not Win 8 upgrade supported? so I think the problem is a missing driver or software?

As far as I know in order to use the FN buttons the Value Added Package for Win 8 needs to be installed.
Check other driver area for Toshiba notebook series supporting the Win 8.
Maybe you could use the VAP released for other series.

Hi All!

I have noticed that Intel have released new drivers for their 4500MHD graphic card, however, the one's released on Toshiba's site for my Satellite L500-1KK are older and are never updated as frequently as those released on Intel's site, my questions are:

1. Is it safe to use the new drivers from Intel for their chipset or should I stick to the ones released by Toshiba?
2. What possible differences are there between these Intel drivers and Toshiba's? ?:|

Thanks all!

You see, dude, If everything works fine don't touch the system with any driver update. I still run my laptop with the old drivers and satisfied.

Yes, you can use intel chipset drivers and shouldn't be worry :)

Ive been pulling my hair out trying to reinstall a driver that i accidentally uninstalled during a system clean up.
It relates to the 'modem device on high definition audio bus' which now appears as a ?! under the device manager. It is also seems to be interfering with my web browsers.
Ive been into the Toshiba sites and download and installed the modem device and realtek audio drivers, nothing seems to work.

Im a part time computer user so any friendly advice is welcome



Answer:Satellite Pro L500 with WXP: reinstalling driver

If uninstalling and reinstalling those drivers doesn't work then the next step is to do a System Restore to restore the registry back to a previous date.

If that doesn't work, then Windows may be corrupted beyond repair. You may need to backup your important data and run Recovery to restore Windows back to it's factory state.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-22R with a ATI Mobiliti Radeon HD 5145.

I want to install new drivers for my card, but Toshiba doesn?t upgrade the driver since 2009 (version 8.653.0.0) and the oficial driver version for ATI is 13.1. The problem is that i can install from AMD page because there is a compatibility problem with hardware.

Someone can help me? I want to upgrade my driver version and i can?t understand this situation.

Answer:Satellite L500-22R - ATI driver upgrade


Here is a AMD page providing this info:

+The following notebooks *are not compatible* with this release:+
+? Any notebook launched after this driver release+
+? Toshiba notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+
+? Sony VAIO notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+
+? Panasonic notebooks (please contact the notebook OEM for driver support for these notebooks)+

In some cases its possible to install such driver but you will have to do that manually from device manager. There you have to click on graphic card, have to choose the Advanced installation procedure which helps you to point to the driver folder which you downloaded from the AMD page. The driver folder should contain dll and ini files. Such files are needed for driver update.

I would like to ask for your help in the following problem:

I bought a Satellite L500-14F (PLSJTE) and I would like to use it with windows XP, but I failed to get the sound driver.

I would really appreciate your help!

Answer:Satellite L500-14F - Need sound driver for XP


The Satellite L500 doesn?t support Windows XP so you have to search on external websites for drivers.

In your case I would search on the manufactures website of the sound chip. Normally there you can also download the sound driver.

And don?t forget to install SP3 before you install the sound driver. SP3 contains 2 Hotfixes for High Definition Audio cards and you will need it!!!

From my knowledge the Toshiba drivers are modified and designed for mobile usage.

I noticed that Toshiba release the new notebook models very often and the drivers will be released for such new series. So in cases the new notebook model uses the same ATI graphic series, you could use the same driver.

Answer:Satellite L500-1Q9 - Update for display driver


Is it really a display driver issue that you need a new version? If you need a newer display driver for games you should update the DirectX version first and have a look if the game is compatible to your graphic card.

If you can?t find a newer display driver for Satellite L500 check other notebook specifications. Other models like Satellite L650 also have an AMD graphic card and there you should find a newer version. :)

You are right. The Toshiba European driver page does not provide any Win XP drivers for this notebook yet.

In worst case you will have to google a little bit for a Win XP ATI mobility Radeon HD 4500 driver.

If you will find such driver then you could install it in device manger using the Advanced installation procedure. This will help you to point to the driver files which you have downloaded and stored on the HDD. This installation works nearly everytime?

Not sure why your Win 7 recognize the card as HD 4500 but I recommend checking this in DirectX
In RUN (or search) type DXDIAG and check what info would be available for this GPU.

Answer:Satellite L500-1C7 Cannot install Intel graphic driver

Generally speaking it is always recommended to use Toshiba drivers only. Toshiba drivers are tested and adapted to work with graphic card placed in notebook. There is also ?mechanism? to protect graphic card from overheating and damaging.

If you check this forum you will find many users with same problem. graphic card manufacturers write on own download pages that for mobile PCs it is strictly recommended to use drivers from notebook manufacturer.

I believe you think it is good driver but do you also think that Toshiba?s driver is not good or not good enough?

If you have problem with notebook ports or anything else than you are on the right place here.

All we can say here is to remove preinstalled software, clean up the registry and install it again.

I bought a Satellite L300D without OS cause I've a vista home premium 64-bit.
I was a little bit astonished that no driver disc was delivered.

Okay - I found the driver download page for this laptop ( and a wlan driver from Realtek was offered (I believe this is THE driver - rest could be downloaded directly from the laptop - if it would work...) .

In the appr. WLAN knowledge base I should refer to a How-to-built.xxxx to find out the correct wlan hardware of the laptop. But I couldn't find this doc....
Okay - so I installed from CD (or better: I tried) after download - run the setup of the realtek semiconductor - but nothing happens. The LED of wlan is still orange (I believe should be green). Device manager of Vista tells me no unknown device - shows really nothing.

After booting the system tells me, that Ethernet controller is missing. Pls insert driver etc......

So now my questions:
Does anyone know which wlan driver I do have to download for this laptop?
Or did I make something wrong?
Is there a collection of all needed drivers for this laptop?
And at least: Is this correct, that no drivers were delivered (carton was sealed by Toshiba)?

Please advise - thx in advance

My DVD player is not working.

There is power to it. The motor fires up when I eject and reinsert it. The Control Panel Troubleshooting for Hardware and Devices says it is a driver problem but cannot fix it. Problem with driver.

I have reinstalled it from Toshiba site.
Is it saving to the correct place?
I'm running Windows 7 64 Bit and chose the correct driver for this.

Should I be using the 64bit?
I only have 3MB RAM which was the spec when bought.

If I wanted to change to the 32bit how do you do it without the CD/DVD player?
Is there any point in doing this?



Answer:Satellite L500-1CQ PSLS0E - CD/DVD drive does not work - Driver problem?


To be honest I?m a little bit confused.
Are you not able to boot from ANY disks; Windows disk, recover disk, Linux disk???

If it?s the case, then this means that you CD/DVD drive is faulty.
Why? Because CD/DVD drive is recognized and controlled by BIOS while booting from CD or DVD.

When Windows operating system has booted up, then the CD/DVD drive should use the common Microsoft driver which is a part of the Windows OS.
This means that you don?t need to install ANY drivers in order to get the CD/DVD working.

If you can boot from any disk but if the CD/DVD drive is not recognized in MY Computer, then I recommend checking this:

Before you would delete the upper and lower filters from the registry, delete the CD/DVD drive from device manager and then go to registry and remove filters. Then reboot the unit.

Good luck

I tried the Vista drivers but don't work. I try on but i can't find anything that works

Answer:Satellite M70: Need LAN & WLan driver for Win 7 RC

The Win 7 is not released as final version and therefore you will not find any Win 7 drivers. In most cases you have to search and test?

The LAN chip seems to be one from Realtek therefore you should search for Realtek LAN driver? maybe the driver from the Realtek page would work.

The Wlan chip should be a Atheros one? therefore search for WLan Atheros WLan driver which could be compatible with Win 7.

After upgrading the wlan drivers from intel to version for the 3945abg chip, I sometimes lose visibilityto all wifi access points after wakeup from standby. The laptop is running XP. Losing wifi access is a nasty problem because it occurs intermittently after opening the laptop from standby mode. The only way to recover seems to be a reboot for now.  ( i tried switching the radio on and off, switching to havingWindows manage wifi, logoff and logon, that all does not fix the problem). I have reported the problem to Intel techsupport as well. Sounds to me there is a small bug in which prevents the drivers from seeing any Wifi access pointat all after waking up from standby. Any suggestions?Thanks for your help.

I have a Satellite T110-11U that I purchased years ago while in the UK. As I'm about to upgrade I'm preparing it to give to a friend who currently has nothing.

I've loaded up all the latest drivers but the WLAN driver doesn't work. Toshiba's website says I need an Intel driver (wlesslan-20150928095045) but I'm pretty sure it's a realtech interface.

I've connected the laptop to the internet via the LAN interface and done a search through device manager. Nothing. Still shows up 'other devices'.

Hi buddy!

I?m using a Satellite L300 too with XP and I can?t notice any problems. It runs properly and the Toshiba website shows all drivers and tools for it.

However, first all you should make sure that you have installed all drivers for your notebook. The Toshiba website shows only Realtek driver for WLAN so I assume you have Realtek WLAN card. Can you run the setup.exe to install the drivers or you get an error message?
If you are not sure, you can also check what WLAN card you have on this website :
The vendor and device ID you can see in device manager => Properties of WLAN card.

About the Toshiba tools for FN keys I can only say that you have to install Common Modules first and then all other Toshiba applications. Common Modules are necessary to get all Toshiba applications working. So remove all installed Toshiba tools and use this installation order that I have used successfully on my Satellite L300:
Toshiba Common Modules
Toshiba Hotkey Utility
Toshiba Touchpad ON/OFF Utility
Toshiba Utilities
Toshiba Controls
Toshiba Power Saver (not necessary, but very nice tool).

I hope I could help you a little bit.

Answer:Need Vista WLan driver for Satellite L45 -S7423


I think you have searched on the wrong website.
Did you search on the Toshiba US driver page? Not?

You should do this because as I?m not mistaken this Satellite L45 -S7423 belongs to the US series.

So please visit the Toshiba US page:

Choose the notebook model and reinstall the compatible WLan driver again.

Best regards

Answer:Need Win7 WLAN driver for my Satellite Z930


What Satellite Z930-xxx do you have exactly?
From my knowledge the units were equipped with three different WLan modules; Intel, Atheros or Realtek are possible? so would be useful to know the model number?

Also the USB drivers are available on the Toshiba EU driver page.
I guess you did not install the USB 3.0 driver and therefore the unknown USB device appears in device manager.

This is a manually installation process?

Hi all,

I have bought a new Toshiba Satellite P855-312 laptop (what I already regret!!!!).

The Win7 was preinstalled, and I wanted to partition the HD and reinstall everything new the way I wanted, but now I can't find a driver for the wireless device.

I found these Realtek Network driver for the Ethernet device, but the driver for the wlan device from the Toshiba support site doesn't work.

I searched desparatley for hours in the net now, but I can't find a driver to get my Wifi running.
I do not even know how to figure out what wireless device I have.

Does somebody know if there is a driver package existing somewhere in the net which makes all the necessary updates to the driver necessary on my laptop?

OS: win7 64bit German
Laptop: Thoshiba Satellite P855-312 pspkbe
serial number:8c013833k

I hope somebody can help me on this issue!

Thank you very much!

I made dual-boot with Vista and XP on my PC. Everything went right except WLAN driver. I looked for WLAN model in device manager on Vista and there is written - Intel PRO/Wireless 5100. So I found dirver for XP, but when I launch installation - install windows appers, but soon it blinks orange and disappears. If to install PROset, this application installs well, except error message at the end - driver is not installed.
Please, help me to find solution.

Answer:Satellite A300-1GN - can't install WLAN driver for XP

You are right? It seems the notebook supports the internal Intel 5100AGN WLan card.

But if you are not 100% sure what WLan card it is then you could use the Intel Wireless LAN Identification Utility to identify the internal WLan card.

Here is the Intel page:
[Intel Wireless LAN Identification Utility|]

Furthermore you can find the Intel WiFi Link 5100 on this page? There is also a Intel WLan driver for the 5100AGN WLan card

Check it out and post the results.

Help please?

Answer:Satellite Pro A100 PSAA3E: What WLan driver should I use?


The Satellite Pro A100 were equipped with the different WLan cards; two different Wlan cards are possible; Intel and Atheros.

All necessary WLan drivers can be found either on the Toshiba European driver page or on the Toshiba WLan portal.

Check both drivers. One of them will work for sure!

i got a new Satellite L305D-S5895 and downgrade to Win XP for software requirements.
The sistem can't recognize the Wireless LAN adapter, and I got tree unrecognized devices in device manager:
SM bus controller, Ethernet controller (but in a fact I'm ethernet conected now) and modem device.

How can I install de WLAN driver?

Answer:Satellite L305D-S5895 WLAN driver for Win XP


Ethernet controller means two devices; LAN or WLan. If LAN card is recognized then the Ethernet controller can be only a WLan card.

I don?t know what WLan card this notebook supports but you could install an hardware diagnostic software like Everest home edition and could find out what Wlan card is installed. Then visit the WLan card manufacture webpage and download the driver.

Mode device -> you could try to install dome modem drivers published for other notebook series. Maybe it will work

SM bus controller -> I presume this is a card reader. The same procedure like with modem device. Check some drivers published in other series

By the way; This is a US notebook model so you have to search on Toshiba US page

i've installed Windows XP on a Satellite A100-289 PSAA9E, but i can't install the network and WLAN driver from the drivers-page.
I always get the message that no suiteble driver was found (I've manually selected the directory with the downloaded drivers)

Can anyone help me?
Where can i get the Correct drivers vor the Network-Controller and the WLAN-Card?

Answer:Can't install LAN/WLAN driver on Satellite A100-289 PSAA9E Win XP


As far as I know the Sat A100 PSAA9E series supports Intel 3945ABG WLan card and also a Intel LAN card.
Wlan driver can be found here:

On the Toshiba European driver page I could find drivers for Sat A100 PSAA9E series.
But note; you have to choose the Archive in the product type because it old series.
There are two different LAN drivers;
- LAN driver v 9.2.24 for Ethernet Pro1000
- LAN driver v for Ethernet Pro100

So check both!

Answer:Satellite Pro A300 PSAGDE - Vista WLan driver


As far as I know the notebook should be equipped with the internal Intel WLan card.

Answer:Satellite Pro L300 PSLB1U - Cannot find the WLan driver and


I think this notebook model belongs to the Toshiba US series and therefore you have to search on the Toshiba US page for WLan drivers?

If you will not find the driver on the Toshiba page then you have to check your WLan chip and then you could download it from the chip manufacturer website.

Then modem device on high definition audio bus need firstly the MS hotifxes like *KB835221* and *KB888111.*
Then you have t install the modem driver and then the sound driver.

I have formatted my laptop and booted it on a regular XP cd. Don?t ask why - I just have :-)

Therefore I am looking for drivers to the system. This is much more complicated than I thought

Especially am I looking for the devicedriver for the Wireless Lan. When I install the driver I find on the website (The Atheros setupfile) it only installs a helpprogram to the wireless device and does not enable the Wireless card.

Does anybody have a good idea?

Kind regards

Answer:Cannot find driver for WLAN card on Satellite M100-149

Hello Hans

You are right. WLAN driver is for driver installation only. Is now WLAN card installed properly? What is the WLAN card status in device manager?

If the WLAN card is installed properly you must enable WLAN card using FN+F8 key combination. Before doing this switch WLAN switch to position ON.

Hi, can anyone tell if this is known issue or not.

This is "Out-of-the-box" condition.

1) the rightmost wireless communication indicator lamp is always off regardless the status of internet connection. Typically, wireless internet connection is not detected upon boot-up, therefore FN+F8 and "All-on" step is required till I get internet connection be established.

2) In this situation, if I try to switch on Bluetooth (for me to be able to use Bluetooth mouse), it starts installing Bluetooth driver but is terminated in the half way saying that "Bluetooth can not be powered on, turn on button on the side of the unit"- obviously there is no physical button or switch on my laptop corresponding to this statement.

To make matters worse, if I try to update BIOS to the latest version, the file contains trojan horse virus (as of 3 Dec 2012, 10pm, New Zealand time) and I was unable to update.

I updated the third party wireless lan driver (64 bit) but it doesn't seem to fix the problems.
Thank you

Please can anyone help me?

Answer:Satellite L750: WLan LED is OFF / Bluetooth driver not installable


What system are you using? Win 7 or Win 8?
Using Fn + F8 switches the Wlan and BT on and off.
Using Win 7 you can enable and disable WLan or BT but using Win 8 the FN + F8 would disable Wlan and BT at the one and the same time.

I have no idea what WLan card you have but I think that one module contains WLan and BT functionality. So if you want to install BT stack you have to install firstly the Bluetooth filter (i.e if you have Atheros Wlan card you have to install Atheros BT filter BEFORE BT stack).

It looks like the unit is from Australian so I recommend checking the Toshiba AU driver page to get all the drivers
