Windows 7 SUCCESS! installing Realtek driver!

I followed advice to get the driver at the manufacturer of my laptop's site instead of Realtek's driver page.

At the Toshiba site was the driver for this group of Satellite model, so I downloaded and ran the executable file. It did not work.

I then manually installed the driver by going to Device Manager where my adaptor was listed as "unknown device." I double clicked the "unknown device" and clicked "update driver."

Then I just followed the path to where the Toshiba executable program had put the non-working driver, in Program Files, and inputted it as the proper driver. I rebooted and it connected outomatically as Windows 7 was booting the desktop! All I had to do was put in my router secutity key.

Thank you all for your help and suggestions. The suggestion to use the driver from the computer manufacturer is the one that did it! Good job!

Great to hear that you were able to resolve the issue with your network adapter driver on your Toshiba laptop by installing it manually through Device Manager. It's always a good idea to get drivers from the manufacturer's website tailored specifically for their devices.

If you have any more questions or need further assistance in the future, feel free to ask. Enjoy your now properly functioning network connection!
