I am struggling trying to downgrade a Toshiba Satellite c55-A from win8 to win7.
I have found all the drivers except the wireless.  The toshiba support site lists Realtek, intel, and Alteros.  I have tried all three and none seem to work.  Since it lists them on the support site I felt good about the downgrade (matter of opion).  Any toshiba experts out there that might give me a little help?
Thanks
Dave

If you can identify the exact model of the wireless card, go to Realtek's site and check for a driver there.

That has worked for me before.

I can't identify it with out taking the notebook apart.  Does not show up in the Device Manager.

Check on Toshiba's site or in their manual. It may list the components.

Even if you found it on the European Toshiba site, my suggestion shouldn't my suggestion still be accepted?
