Wireless Networking NIC Causing Laptop to Lockup?
Posted on 2004-10-24
A few months ago I moved into a new house and wanted to have a wireless network for my laptop. I’ve had no problems at all until a few weeks ago. The laptop would just lock up for no reason while I worked on it. After weeks of trying to figure out what the problem was. I formatted everything and reinstalled all the preinstalled software that came with it. I then installed SP2 and any new Software updates for my wireless NIC, but it’s still giving me major problems. Since then I have uninstalled SP2.
Here is what I have…
Toshiba Satellite P25-S477
I currently am using the wireless nic that came with the laptop to connect to my wireless network. I am limited at 10 Mbps when I do this. I would like to be able to use the fast 108 Mbps connection. Can anyone give me some tips on how to fix this?
Sometimes the laptop will lockup, then when I reboot, the laptop does not recognize that the wireless netgear NIC is not installed. I would have to uninstall the NETGEAR WG511T Smart Configuration software then reinstall it and it would recognize the NIC again and jump on the network. How can I fix this problem?
