Wireless Network Card packed in. Easy to replace?

How easy is it to replace the wireless network card? I can't see how you release and remove the card from the Laptop, a Toshiba Equium P200-1ED.

Also I've looked at some sites selling internal cards for laptops but they don't list which LT their compatable with, or are all 802.11g / 54g wireless cards standard fit?

Removed these from a HP and a Tosiba.

Unscrew and lift the hatch on the base of the lappy.

The two cable connectors into the wifi adaptor are a little tight but it helps if you move the cable, clock and anti-clockwise a little first.

The two cables pull directly off the wifi adaptor.

Then remove the screws holding the adaptor in place.

Careful when putting the connectors back on as the central pin is small and delicate.

Strangly, as suddenly as it stopped working, the the card has has started to work again .:confused:

Not that I'm complaining, confused but not complaining.

Wifi can do that, sometime due to a recent update? This could possibly be prevented from happening again by going to the manufacture's website and downloading the latest drivers for your wireless device :) Also check the router is working properly, usually green lights on "dsl" "wireless" and "internet."

Now there's a coincidence.

Wifi went belly up on my wife's Toshiba Satellite at the weekend, swapped the card with one from an old Acer until the new one arrived from eBay. £5.45 delivered quickly.

My eyes and dexterity are getting a bit challenged for this intricacy.
