hi all

I have a toshiba satellite s2340-402. this came with a mini pci port but no card when i got the laptop. I have since got a mini pci wifi card. a intel wireless 2100. I did not have software for the card and so have downloaded this from intel. all was going well, but each time my computer starts i am told that the card is not connected. when looking at the little bit of software you get, its says that the radio off. i have a button on my laptop to turn the wifi off but this does not do anything and i can not get it to turn on using the software ether. =[

any advice and help would be very good thanx

ok i have found that its my laptop that is turning off the mini pci card. i also now know that i need to put a little bit of tap over one or more of the connection pin/pins to stop this and then use the software with the card to turn on the signal.

do any of you fine people know which one before i start trying them one by one??
