  1. Toshiba Satellite U300 Lp.Tp. Dual core 1.75 ghz, 1gb ram, 160gb HD, Atheros AR5006x Wireless Net Adapter. I am getting A code 10 from device manager that this adapter will not start.I have tried to re-install driver,uninstall-reinstall the device and went through the trouble shooter in Win XP Pro, all to no avail. I don't know how to start the card functioning, it worked before I moved, and the laptop was not banged or dropped.The Ras_Async adapter is suffering the same dilemma. The drivers are up to date as far as I know . Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm trying to hook up to another computer that is running a Linksys wireless g broadband router.
