Question about Toshiba PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite P25-S477 laptop and my network adapter is not functioning properly. My computer will detect available networks, but always displays "limited or no connectivity". I looked to find out why and it says that my IP address was not set properly. I think it is a problem with the IP address, but I am not sure. What should I do?

What i would try is renewing your ip address, go to command prompt type in "ipconfig /release" wait till it is finished, then type in "ipconfig /renew" and see if that works.

If that doesnt solve it, there are a few more items that would help solve>
What type of router
static or dynamic ip address

Gateway sx2865-ur11p can't find networks


Double check the laptops wireless switch. They often have a feature that allows you to completely disable/enable the wireless aspects of a laptop. Windows will not tell you it is disabled always and just tell you it can't detect any signals.

Satellite p35 will not go to wireless


Might not have a wireless card installed ??

If your Toshiba Satellite notebook computer is equipped with a wireless Internet card, you can connect to a Wi-Fi access point by turning on the wireless switch on the side of the laptop.
However, the signal may not always be picked up by your wireless receiver; if that is the case, you will need to check your wireless-network settings and reconfigure the network connections manually.

Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings."
This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet.
Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks."
Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network.

Select "Manage Network Connections."
This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection.

Engage the wireless connection.
Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection.
Select "Connect/Disconnect."

Wait for the IP address acquisition.
It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address.
When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength.
Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.

Hello im troubleshooting a error on a dell dimension 2400, windows xp error when testing or querying the modem the error reads cannot connect or check to see if hardware is powered on or connected...


Wireless zero configuration is the feature of Windows XP that allows Windows to detect the available wireless networks and automatically connect to the most preferred wireless network.

It is enabled by the Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP. It provides auto wireless network detection when you switch on the computer.
Follow the steps below to verify that the service is running:
1. Go to Start and right click My Computer. Select and click Manage.
2. Computer Management window will appear. Under Services and Applications, select Services.
3. Check for the service Wireless Zero Configuration. Make sure that it is started and that the startup type is set to automatic.
computer-management.jpg4. If it isn't, double-click the service. If the startup type is not set to automatic, click on the dropdown arrow and and change it to automatic. Click OK at last.
autostart-wireless-zero.jpgIf your wireless adapter driver does not support wireless auto onfiguration, you will notice the following:
- The network adapter does not appear as a wireless network adapter in Network Connections. It appears as a LAN adapter, similar to an Ethernet connection.
- The properties of the wireless connection do not have a Wireless Networks tab.
- You do not receive a Windows XP notification bar message indicating that wireless networks are available.
To get the most out of your Windows XP wireless experience, you should contact wireless adapter manufacturer to obtain the latest version of the drivers that support this XP feature.
If not, you must manually configure wireless network settings using the configuration software supplied with the wireless network adapter.

My Toshiba satellite A305 model wireless not detecting any networks


First be sure your wireless is turned on. This is done either by a switch on the front or side of the computer or by a combo keystroke of Fn and one of the special function keys that has a picture of an antenna on it.
If you are sure your wireless is on, then make sure that there are wireless networks to detect. If you have the wireless router be sure that the wireless function is turned on and the SSID is being broadcasted.

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.

Has the toshiba a60 laptop got an onboard wireless adapter, cos i have been told that mine has a conflicting problem with the wireless adapter i have tried to install


Hi suze26,

Yes, your laptop came with 10/100 ethernet card and 802.11g wireless. You can try to un-install this device temporally to see if the conflict clears. If not you may need to go to your manufacturer for updated drivers. Try this: click Start>control panel>system, click on hardware tab choose device manager, look for network adapters click to see the adapters installed on your computer, choose the the 802.11g and un-install. Reboot, windows will detect new hardware and reinstall the network adapter, check to see if conflict has cleared. I hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.com

Have a new Satellite P305-S8812 notebook and cannot connect to the internet wirelessly. N Rounter just installed. Computer has B/G wireless technology. Do I need an adapter for the notebook to connect?


nope there is no need for any adapters

but all you need is to turn on the wireless adapter on your laptop and that would be either a button on the sides to turn on and off the wireless adapter or its a key (function key) on your keyboard (its always with an antenna shape and blue colored) if u have that key then click and hold the (Fn blue colored key) and the (antenna blue colored key) and release both that should turn on the wireless adapter.

and notice that with the new routers there is a security key that is already set up in the router (it should be in the back of the router and mostly 10 digits).

that should be all my friend

cheers

Hi, have just purchased toshiba satellite pro L300 PSLB1A which has a realtek RTL8187B wireless 802.11b/g 54Mbps usb 2.0 network adapter.(internal) and it refuses to connect to my new Linksys wireless...


If you have more than one computer on your network, try disabling the firewalls on all computers and trying again. If this works, then you need to adjust your firewall settings to allow your network to function properly. If this does not work, you may have to log into your linksys router and check the wireless settings.

Let me know what happens.
