Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
I have a brand new, Toshiba L305-S5891 laptop. O/S is Vista Home Premium. Wireless card is Atheros AR5007EG. Router is Netgear WNR545T. Laptop connects to home wireless but lose its IP address. Tray icon says still connected but no connectivity to internet. Resetting IP address restores connection. Have updated firmware in router and tried various setting. Selected mixed mode a/b/g/n and set MTU to 1400. Toshiba support link say I have latest driver.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. About ready to install XP Pro althogh Toshiba support swears i won;t have the drivers I need.
The problem is not Vista, the problem is the Netgear. I have seen this happen time and time again with both Netgear (primarily) and D-Link (often). That's why I *only* recommend Linksys.
Worst case - go buy one from Walmart (yes, they have 'em). Hook it up and see the difference. If, somehow, the problem persists, take it back, and you've lost nothing. But I'd bet (as they say down here in the South "dollars to doughnuts") that's your problem :)
Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
