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.

Instead of download drivers from softpedia.com, it would be recommended to download updated drivers from your Mini PCI Wireless card manufacturors website, such as Intel or Netgear, whichever applies to your card.
