Hello. I upgraded the wifi card in my Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7005. I removed the single band card and installed a Realtek RTL8821AE Dual Band 2.4GHz & 5GHz 433M Bluetooth 4.0 PCI-E Wlan Card. Windows 7 found the drivers for the Bluetooth portion, but will only find a driver for a wired Ethernet card, even while searching online. I installed the driver for the model of card, but windows still chooses the wired driver. Forcing the correct driver doesn't work either. The laptop has 2 antennas. Not sure what the issue is. Any help would be appreciated.
