Hello,

I have Windows XP - Toshiba M105-S3064 with Intel Wifi 3945 ABG card.

I tried to replace with intel Wifi 5100 AGN card - to use more options (A or G or N).

I find it listed in Device Manager and with drivers installed.

I tried to switch by hand yet will not light-up, will not switch on.

I know the switch is good, because I put back the intel 3945 card, then it lights-up and switches on and off by hand.

I think it prevented by the computer BIOS, inhibited because the only wireless card to be used is the original card. I checked it, it runs better: cooler, less interference and etc.

I found it must be programed, in the ROM, the BIOS, like BIOS Updates to accept the one it has.

I did get it to work, I read the instructions - it must be programed, in the ROM, the BIOS, like BIOS Updates to accept the one it now has.
