    Hum... it looks like it is detected OK.
    What gives you
    Code:
    ifconfig
    and
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Or even
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    given that you have "wireless-tools" installed.

    I see you already posted here:
    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=448068

    I am not familiar at all with your Wireless PCMCIA card. Does Toshiba provides a Windows driver for it? Then you could make it work with NDISWRAPPER:
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...ork-linux.html

    I see there is wireless lan driver here:
    http://209.167.114.38/support/Download/ln_byModel.asp
    Check in Notebooks/Satellite Pro/4600
