Intel Pro Wireless 2200 mini pci for Toshiba 5105-S701

Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5749630369

As I mentioned earlier, the 802.11g mini PCI card I bought off of eBay arrived today.

I made the swap, and after a few bumps....like not remembering what my encryption settings were and forgetting to update the DHCP and WAP MAC address lists. Things seem to be working well.

The only other hitch was getting Toshiba's Network Device Switch tray app to accept that I no longer have a Toshiba Wireless Mini PCI adapter and that I want it to still work with the Intel one instead.

After lots of trial and error in the registry...I got it working. Don't ask me how though. &#59;D

The WAP is still 802.11b...so not much improvement yet.

The other loss is the Wireless switch and light (and keyboard shortcut) don't work with the card...but I recall hearing long ago that this would be an issue.

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
