Toshiba L450 Wireless????
We have just got a batch of 32 Toshiba L450's in. I have been building the image for them before they can be deployed.
I have a problem with the wireless on this machine and wondered if anyone has come across it as its driving me insane.
So here's what we have...
The Machine -
Windows XP Pro SP3
Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless Card
Ruckus Managed Wireless
The Problem -
Wireless will connect intermittently, but 9 times out of 10 will not connect. If it does and the machine is rebooted it will loose connectivity. Drivers have been updated to the latest version and still no luck.
Can anyone help?

do you have any toshiba branded wireless software installed as part of the image?
we had a problem with HP laptops and HPs wireless software which was stopping laptops from connecting properly to wireless connections; removed the software and just used the windows wireless utility and it worked.

Thanks for the quick reply, but no there is no addtional wireless software on the machine, it uses windows to configure it.

We have four at work. The wireless has been hit and miss. One has just lost the wireless function completely. It doesn't even exist as a 'Fn' option. Bizarre.

Did you find a fix for this? I've just got a batch of 35, and am having the exact same issue you described....

Works fine with WEP encryption though - just struggles with WPA and WPA2 :-(

Have you tried the drivers from the realtek site rather than the Toshiba ones ? Might be worth a try.

Just downloading them now... Also trying one with on windows 7 to see if that works...

We've had problems with these cards in the Toshiba Laptop's under XP. We tried practically everything we could thing of (different drivers, settings, fresh build, reseating the card, etc...). However in the end, in order to get it working with XP and WPA/WPA2, we had to change the wireless cards in all 15 of them to Intels.
I believe that with Windows 7, it actually works.

Damn, updated drivers didn't work, but as you say windows 7 works fine :-@

Now this is interesting to see, As we are currently been going through support with HP for the last 3 weeks and now we are waiting on them to send a different manufacture wireless card. Because these machines are HP 610 with the same wireless card as those toshiba (Realtek RTL8191SE) Really struggle with are wireless system with constant issues and haven't been fit for purpose since they arrived!

Are they sending you the different card through warranty?
8th October 2010, 11:35 AM #14
Ye, I'm still waiting for them to confirm that they are doing this but i was advised on the phone this is what should happen next. With the hp laptop, We tried putting in a different wireless card and it looks like the machine is locked to certain wireless cards as it would complain about an unsupported wireless card on bootup!

Just to confirm, They are now sending the new cards under warrenty, Looks like faulty cards... Joy?
