Portégé R830 - No wireless adaptor in Devices
Please can somebody help me connect my Portégé R830-13C (PT321E) to my adsl router via wi-fi?
There is no "Connect to wireless networks" option via "Set up new connection or network > Connect to the internet", presumably as I can see no wireless adaptors in Device Manager.
I have followed [How to identify an unknown device (e.g. Wireless LAN module)?|http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD0302U00000R01.htm] and found the below via "System Information > Components > Problem Devices":-
Network Controller PCI\VEN_*8086*&DEV_*0091*&SUBSYS_52018086&REV_34\4 &18A673AE&0&00E2 The drivers for this device are not installed.
....and according to [http://www.pcidatabase.com/] this is the +Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230+ . However, I see no equivalent listed on [Wireless LAN Driver Downloads|http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads], so now I'm stuck.
OS: *Windows 7 Enterprise Version 64-bit 6.1.7601 SP 1 Build 7601* / Chipset: *Intel Core i5-2520M*
Re: No wireless adaptor in Devices
I figured it out, problem solved.
I downloaded and installed the missing drivers from the Intel website [Drivers only download (ICS_Ds64.zip; v14.1.1, 06/06/2011)|http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3316&DwnldID=20116&P roductFamily=Wireless+Networking&ProductLine=Intel %c2%ae+WiFi+Products&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Ce ntrino%c2%ae+Advanced-N+6205&DownloadType=Software+Applicationseng], the wireless adaptor correctly displayed in Device Manager and the list of available wireless networks magically appeared by the Notifications Area. Happy days!
