Hello all!
I was attempting to upgrade my Toshiba 8.1 to windows 10 and was offered to update bios and Atheros Wireless Lan Driver. I mistakenly did both updates and now have lost the Lan Driver. I obtained usb system recovery from Toshiba but when I attempt to recover, the Atheros Wireless Lan Driver wont and I am stuck. Is there anyway that  I  can reinstall the driver and finish recovering my pc? I have download the driver onto my usb and need a walk through if anyone can  help. I  really need this pc for the upcoming spring semester.
Thanks ahead
Teresa Z

Have you checked the Toshiba website support? You need the model number off the bottom of it to punch that into their search.

What may work is to go into device manager and delete the driver shown for the Lan,  Reboot fair chance Windows will find and install a driver.


The driver for 10 may well be different!
