|I think i may need to install the device driver for the NIC|
Yes, you need to do this in order for the device to work.
i don't remember which driver i need for the NIC of my laptop and i can not find it on the Toshiba website,
If you got some CD's with the device at least one of them should contain drivers. If not, I suggest getting the model number of your unit off the label on the bottom and checking the Toshiba website again for drivers. If they don't have them, look up the specs for your machine and find out what make/model the wireless interface is and then go download your drivers from the manufacturer's website.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
