hey!
i need help trying to fix my wireless adapter card i suppose. I tried to reinstall drivers using the original ones provided by toshiba >

but that did not help!
i tried restarting the wireless network service and nothing.

one thing I did was to boot into ubuntu live to see if wireless worked under linux and it did!
so this has to do with windows vista os and and something that I am still not able to figure out.

i also tried some commands with netsh and nothing it seems like wireless card is turned off and it doesn't detect anything :'(

what can i do?

start by posting the results of an ipconfig /all when booted to vista.

Are you using encryption for your wireless access?

As wanderer said, post your ipconfig results.
