    Can anyone confirm whether this card supports WPA?
    When I look in the network poerpties of this card on my Toshiba Sat1800
    there are no WPA options.
    Is this because the machine/config is worng ....or does this card not
    support it.

    The driver is 7.43.0.9 (1/07/2001) which seems *really* old but I cant find
    a newer one anywhere?
    Does anyone know of a newer driver (yes I have searched the toshiba support
    site) that will enable WPA on this card?

    Thanks

    Answered my own question:
    Just found an updated driver package at www.agere.com - contains the right
    driver and is version 7.82.0.550 (22/9/2003) and it *does* support WPA.
    Hope that helps somone else.

    Same issue

    HI,
    I'm having the same issue with my computer, but wasn't able to find the download at the link you provided.

    Can you tell me where it was that you found this driver?
    Did it work for you?

    Thanks,
    Jenn

    Thanks for your help

    Hi Wiak (and Al Blake)
    Just to say, thanks a million for loading the wlan drivers here for my satellite pro 6100. They work like a dream for any 6100 owner who needs wpa and according to device manager, has a "Toshiba Wireless LAN mini pci card" in the laptop. After days of trying to find the drivers, I had concluded it was a hardware problem that I could not get wpa and was about to buy a pcmia card which would not have been a good solution.

    I followed the links and found a zip file of all kinds of files. What exactly do I need to replace to get my drivers working?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    wpa driver for wireless lan mini pci card

    I can't thank the folks here enough for the driver which now permits wpa security on our wireless network.. mine being the older wep enable device.

    In answer to the last posting, you need to first download the driver, unzip it, and then go to device manager and upgrade the driver version from your newly downloaded driver.

    Good luck

    Portege 3500 WPA problems

    Thank you all so much for you posts regarding upgrading the drivers for the Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Card, they indeed allowed me to configure the connection for WPA-PSK/TKIP authentication.

    Unfortunately, it will not connect. I have a Netgear RangeMax Next Wireless-N Router (WNR834B) using WPA-PSK (both in TKIP and AES modes). The SSID is broadcasting, and the Portege can see it, but when it tries to connect, after a few minutes it will either search for available wireless networks again (like I hit the refresh button, but I didn't) or it will give me the message "Windows cannot connect to the network...Either the network is offline or is experiencing difficulties," or something like that. Is there something I'm forgetting, or is the WPA just not clicking between the laptop and the router? Please help, this is starting to get on my nerves.

    I updated my drivers to 7.82... I still do not have the WPA option in my wireless configuration. Any ideas?

    hi guys,
    Thanks, I was able to resolve this issue with a little playing around, it didnt happen right after updating drivers for me and I faced same problems initially like balexan and Manic_8Ball....

    balexan, and Manic, delete everything from your wireless networks, which is already there, it can sometimes conflict..go to my Networkconnnections>ToshibaWireless mini card (right click properties)>Wireless networks Tab>Preferred Networks(remove all)

    Now next step, go to Setup a wireless network wizard, select all WPA related settings...and you will get the connection...I tried to do manually without the wizard and it didnt work..keept tryign to connect..and balexan once you add somethign to preffered network then click properties, you can choose in network authentication drop down menu for WPA-PSK..and TKIP below it.

    Hope this helps. GL

    Hi can you email the driver to me, plz

    I can't access the zip files either. I'm sure one of you kind souls has it stored.

    2011 Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI card & WPA

    i tried all of the previous links and none "worked" in the here and now of 2011... i chased my tail around www.agere.com, www.lsi.com , www.proxim.com , Alcatel-Lucent website, to name a few.

    i finally found a FREE link or two to get the updated driver. I downloaded from http://driverzone.com/{0624e1bf-8490-401b-ba54-658ace36001e}?id=2386104 and installed, BUT have yet to find the correct tweaking in Network Connections or Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

    i may download and reinstall from http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/to...re-client-manager/page__pid__10853#entry10853 to see if this is "better" source.

    Plan to post success or cry for help.
