Hi all,

I've recently obtained a Toshiba AX1/424CME from Japan, and now I need to locate Win2K drivers for it.  It appears that this model does not yet have an equivalent model outside of Japan, but please correct me if I'm wrong about that.  So Toshiba is making the drivers available for download from a Japanese web page, and not speaking the language makes it almost impossible to find what I'm looking for.

In particular I'm looking for the Win2K driver for the built-in Network Adapter, although ideally I'd like to get my hands on all the drivers that Toshiba is making available.  I've used PCWizard (www.cpuid.com) to identify some of the hardware and found some drivers which work, but no joy when it comes to the Network Adapter.  Also, then W2K starts up it identifies new hardware "Unknown" (apart from the Network Adapter) and I've no idea what it has detected.

So if any Toshiba expert out there can help, or indeed anyone who can navigate Japanese web pages and can send me links, then I'd be very grateful, and there's a few points going for it as well.

cheers,
owenm.

Thanks oldgreyguy, I'd found that page alright, and I'd found the specs page, but it was only listed as a 10/100 TX LAN.  

However, my LAN card problem is now solved.  PCWizard identified the motherboard as an Intel, so I downloaded the latest network adapter base drivers from Intel, and it worked.  Thankfully Intel provide one package with drivers for almost all their Network Adapters, so without knowing the exact chipset I just left it to the package to work out the correct one, which it did.  

FYI, the drivers were downloaded from <http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df/Product_Filter.asp?ProductID=998>

I still have some "Unknown" hardware being identified on startup.  I suspect it's some controller on the Intel board, but I'm going to just disable it until more is known (in English) about this machine.

cheers,
owenm.
the mainboard drivers are also available from Intel (if that is the chipset.. won't hurt anything if they are not... just won't install)
