Try going into your Run program and type in cmd.exe. Once your MS-DOS comes up, type in ipconfig/ release. After that, then when the page runs and stops, type in ipconfig/ renew. After that, see if your computer will connect to the internet. Also, make sure that your wireless password, if you are using any, is correct.

My toshiba satellite laptop want connect tothe internet


It could be a couple things: 1. Try connecting using the wired connection if you can. If it works, then problem most likely with wireless. 2. Try connecting wirelessly maybe using a public WIFI hotspot or a friend's connection. That will rule out your router. 3. It could be a browser issue: Start / Run / Inetcpl.cpl and then check the Internet settings. Make sure there are no proxy settings set.

Try disconnect the router and connect your laptop to the dsl modem. If there is connection then the router may have problems. If the problem persists then go to toshiba service center. They will certainly solve your problem. It might be that there are problems on hardware or drivers.

My toshiba satellite laptop won't connect wirelessly to Bigpond home network gateway. Bigpond reckon it's a toshiba problem


As a general test, see if you can ping the "router's configuration URL IP address". To do that go to a command prompt(DOS Prompt) and type in ping and the routers IP. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the router. Next try PINGing to www.yahoo.com or www.google.com. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the Internet. If not try sending a ping to their IP(the numbered) address. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the Internet, but you have a DNS issue. Big Pond can help you with that.

I bought this router 2 days ago. I pluged in the phone socket (with micro filter), and into mains,it worked perfectly on my daughters' (each daughter has a laptop - all work)laptops, and one of my desktop...


1) Make sure there is no low-pass filter from the phone line to the wall - it should be directly connected.

2) The laptop issue has nothing to do with the wireless router if it's actually connected. Try pinging the router. Open the command prompt. type ipconfig. Look at the laptop's IP address and the gateway. Try pinging the gateway (ie ping 192.168.1.1). If the ping works, the connection is fine.

3) Can you open a browser window but not connect to a web page? This is due to a connectivity issue. If you can't even open a web page for whatever reason, its a problem with the laptop, not the connection. Hope this helps.

Cannot get internet from router to


If I understand correctly you want to use the router as a gateway for an sat. receiver.
This Netgear router can be connected to devices that has TCP/IP connections (RJ45) ports or wireless IEEE 803.11 b/g, and that can get the IP address statically or from DHCP (router). Toshiba can do that and therefore it is working fine. If sat.receiver is not device that can behave as a PC (processor etc.) it can not get IP address and router can not "see" that device, therefore router can not let "something invisible" to connect to the internet.

My computer says its connect to my wireless network yet I can't access the internet!


Try resetting your router first off. Then repair your connection by right-clicking on the connection. You may have a sketchy router or one that could benefit from a firmware upgrade. I would get into the router's homepage and check the settings for your connection, then make sure your getting IP addresses and DNS addresses from your ISP.

Need to set up wireless for toshiba A105-S-4034


If you have installed the AT&T software, you should be able to use that application to connect to the Internet. Are you using a USB gateway or do you have a stand-alone gateway?

If you have the USB type, install the software first and then connect the USB gateway, Click on the software app to start the Internet connection. AT&T info will show a tab for GSx and one for Wireless. As long as you have a subscription, I would use the GSx tab, otherwise, select the wireless tab and connect to your gateway or any other wireless router that you have access to. Good Luck.

Laptop wireless connection


assuming you have set up the router to enable DHCP which automatically detects pc's and assigns an automatic ip address, and assuming you are using XP and not Vista, although the workthrough is similair; go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked, then apply and exit IE

Next go to control panel>network connections, double click your wireless connection icon, select the TCP/IP line and click properties, then make sure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply it ok, then open IE again and click the refresh button a few times.
