I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite 1415-S105, and reinstalled the operating system.

I have gotten everything to work with installing the drivers, except the wireless which seems to be detected in device manager, however I am unable to install the drivers for it. When running the setup for the drivers it says that it was successful on installing. But it doesn't work and device manager still detects a Ethernet controller.

The driver package I'm using I found on some driver site, because Toshiba does not have the 1415-s105 listed.

Anyway the package I'm using was said to be compatible with that model number. it's called "s193wlanx.exe"

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks.

Try to check again if what you have download is really compatible for your laptop. most of the time its hard to find the correct drivers for laptops especially when your changing OS. if you feel its the correct driver for your laptop try to install it manually using the device manager.

Problem solved, found out from the seller that he upgraded the wireless card. Found the correct drivers by looking at the chipset name, and DL the drivers it works perfect now.

Thanks for everyones help on trying to help me solve this problem.
