    Satellite L300-20D (PSLB8E-0CK00YEN) recently put new hard drive in installed Windows 7 32 bit and then ran system restore from back up discs, now everything ok except the wireless card/adaptor is not listed under device manager. Using a 3 connect dongle for now but don't understand where the device has gone it is switched on and F8 does nothing.

    Please can anyone help? Many thanks in advance. Trevor

    Hey,

    Usually if the WLAN card isn’t listed in device manager the driver isn’t installed. I think you should update the WLAN driver and you can download the newest version here:

    Furthermore have you tested other FN key combination? If no FN key combinations work the problem could be missing Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility. Both tools you can get on Toshiba driver download page.

    > installed Windows 7 32 bit and then ran system restore from back up discs..
    For me it sounds that you have used original Toshiba recovery DVD. Can you confirm this?

    I mean recovery image contains all necessary drivers for all hardware components so I’m a little bit confused that WLAN card is not listed in device manager under “Network adapters”.

    I don’t know for sure but your notebook must have either Atheros or Realtek RTL8187B WLAN card inside. Have you tried to install WLAN card additionally?
