Toshiba 4600 Wifi

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I purchased an Intel 2915ABG mini PCI wifi adapter off eBay for my Toshiba
Satellite Pro 4600 running Windows XP SP2. Downloaded the latest drivers
from the Intel website (v10.x) and everything is working well. The antenna
cables built into the laptop are long enough to reach the card connectors no
matter where they are on the card.

The range is much better than my Symbol LA-4121 802.11b PC Card and my
Netgear MA111 802.11b USB adapter.

The connection seems slow when using the WPA-PSK option between this card
and my D-Link DI-524 router. Haven't looked into this any further, I just
switched to WEP until I can figure out the speed issue.

As stated by another poster, the wifi switch on the side of the laptop
appears to be useless with anything other than the OEM card and drivers.

Just though I'd post this "for the record." ;)
