I recently installed Athos/Askey AR5BMB5 (shows up as 802.11g wireless cardbus adapter, in device manager) in my satellite 1905-s301. Card was taken out of a Toshiba Satellite M45-s169, and was functioning properly in that laptop. I can't seem to establish a connection to the wireless network. I've tried NUMEROUS different things and read/searched for hours! I did find (on this site) where someone said to cover pins 11 & 13 and that would solve problem. MY problem is, I took the card back out to try this and I have no idea how to figure out which are pins 11 & 13! I can't see ANY numbers on the card,to be able to tell which side is odd/even,or which end to start from, so, I'm completely lost. Could someone please help me? Is this even what I should be trying to do? I'm new to laptops and have no idea what I'm doing with this wireless stuff. I simply plug in here at home & it works fine, but I need wireless for work. I would GREATLY appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!
