View Full Version : Intel Pro 2200 - Satellite L10 – connection drops to 1 Mb/s

17.02.2006, 20:08
My notebook is L10-102 with Intel pro/wireless 2200 bg , when it connects internet by wireless it is instable. When I connect first the speed is 54 Mb/s and then it decreases to 1 Mb/s in 5 minutes. Sometimes it increases again but when it is 1 Mb/s I can not open any website. I tried the notebook with many modems (USR , zoom , airties etc.) My other notebook is stable while connected. I wonder is it is normal. If not is it a hardware or software problem?
Note: I updated the driver twice but it does not work.
Please help me

Hi Cornelius

Meanwhile it is known that WLAN connection with this WLAN card is instable. On this forum you will find many topics with the same theme but without any precise explanation. Please try to install the latest Intel driver ( http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1637&lang=eng) for this card. Maybe it will help in your case.

Did you test it with new driver? Please report us about the results.

You should not install Intel drivers because that does not help. I have tested it. There is a problem with 802.1g and Toshiba will publish updated drivers for all models (which have intel wlan card). Actually there is updated drivers already for Tecra but not for Satellite. For other models.. well i don't know.

The problem is that Toshiba drivers are much outdated compared to Intel. e.g. for Tecra WLAN device driver (Toshiba =, Intel = and now). Toshiba asked me to use Intel driver for Satellite to try fixing my connection timeout issue. Will try this.

Note! You cannot compare Toshiba version and with Intel versions. They are not sychronized.

Intel drivers cannot change some setting with toshiba chipset. Toshiba drivers can.
