I have reinstalled my gf's system for this laptop using the Toshiba NZ websites drivers for her specific model.  Everything has installed correctly bar the WIFI drivers.  The ones that are listed (XP that is) all state there is no supported chip for their drivers and the instillation cancels!!

I dont have access to her original CD's to install them so need some help as to work out what drivers i should get that will work.


The exact model of computer is the Satellite M100 (PSMA0A) model.  The bottom of the computer lends the wifi information of:

IC: 248H-DPA3501W
CMII ID: 2005DJ1964

The devices shows up as uninstalled with the yellow question mark in the Device Manager as "Ethernet Controller"


Any helpas to getting to the bottom of this would be greatly appreciated;

It's helpful to get the Device ID - go into Device Manager, view the Properties of the unknown device in question, go into the Details tab, and select "Hardware Ids".

The IDs will be in the form of:


Where the x's are the IDs.

You can search this ID online to find drivers.

Thanks for the tip, I ended up finding the correct drivers on the Toshiba international site.  Go figure the NZ site has the wrong ones for the product!!
