Thanks for this. I didn't realize you could grab the Atheros Wireless adapter from the Toshiba site. I just posted a similar article.
Did you have any problems with the sound popping and skipping?Although you probably don't have XP still installed on your laptop, I'm wondering if you had the same problem as me, I also have a a215-s4747.I found a program called BrightnessController by Sven Groot. It controls the brightness pretty well on my a215, just incase you install XP again.
I never had any problems with sound. But I don't have XP installed anymire. Sorry. I'd check the driver.
I saw you put XP on your satellite laptop. Did you have a problem getting the touchpad to work? If so what did you do to fix it and what driver did you find that worked. I have been trying for hours.Thanks alot sir.TD from montana
