So I installed a mini pci wireless card into an old toshiba satellite a10 laptop, but I can't seem to be able to connect to any networks. I connected all the antennas according to the user's manual, but I still can't get a signal. Sometimes I see two or three networks in the list (I'm living in college dorms, so they're probably the private wireless from the rooms next to me), but they all have zero signal.
I installed this http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-C...river-782.shtml
cause a google search got me this http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t469...rd-amp-wpa.html
and i was desperate to try any leads I could find.
I really don't know anything about wireless networking, and I have no idea whether it's the software or hardware that is giving me problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
