Network controller(Wireless adapter) for TOSHIBA Laptop wasn't recongnised by Windows 7

Hi,

I don't have the drivers software, and I've tried installing a Windows 7 Ultimate(64Bit), however, when the installation has finished, I found out that Wireless adapter isn't recognised, although all others devices such as Ethernet adaptor is recognised.

 

Thus, I would like anyone to help me to let this device defined. I'm expecting that windows' updates will update this Wireless adapter.

The Specis of my laptop are:

Toshiba,
Satellite  Pro L450-EZ1510
Part No: PSLY1-01J010.


I am expecting that windows updates will be defining the the Wiresless adapter.

Thanks a lot.

No, it isn't Intel Wireless LAN Driver

 

 

 

Yes, the updates let the Wireless adabpter defined. However, it is Realtek Wireless LAN Driver for Windows 7 (32/64)

 

 

Thus, I don't need to go to http://support.toshiba.com/support/driversResults?freeText=2558912  to download Realtek Wireless LAN Driver for Windows 7 (32/64).

 

this raises another question which is, how can I know if there are other devices still missing  and needing drivers to be working. For instance, my laptop has a Web Camera integrated with it, and I don't know if this will be working or not. Also, I don't know if there is a bluetooth integrated with my laptop or not. I think if any devices were still missing and needing a drivers, they would have listed under 'other devices' category in the device manager.

Go to the Toshiba website and download the latest drivers and any additional software that is required. You can Google the specs on your laptop easy enough to find out if it has bluetooth or not.

Do NOT use 3rd party driver finders. Always get your drivers direct from the device manufacturers.


OK, so now you can ignore the gibberish re the out of date devices..

Windows 10 Pro - Start10 - part of a local network which is a '3rd party optimizer-free' zone..

I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite C55d c5251 with windows 10 preinstalled but the wifi drivers do not support hosted networks, which I need in order to use my computer as a hotspot. I've been looking for them but haven't been able to find them. Is this a Windows 10 thing? Because one of the reasons why I purchased the new computer is because in my old one I had hosted networks support  with windows 7 and after I upgraded to Windows 10 I lost that functionality and I though it was because of my old computer but the problem is the same with the new computer and I need to have that functionality. Any suggestions?
