Seems your laptop is not getting a ipaddress back from the router or dns server.. I would check your wireless settings, maybe reset the router, hold down the reset button for 30seconds try again. sometimething might be wrong in the wireing.

If your computer is connected to the Internet by the use of modem, etc. The problem may lie in DNS settings or in ISP provider. You may contact your ISP provider about the problem.

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.

Toshiba equium A210-17i wireles problems


Hi,
It doesnt sound like a problem with you laptop, rather its most likely to be the router.
People can edit the settings so that only their IP adress can connect.
If you can connect with limited connectivity, again its the router, not connecting properly.
Can you connect to any router? i take it you're not connection to your own XD

I recently purchased a Hawking HSB2 Signal Booster. Two years ago, my son installed a Toshiba Cable modem(PCX2200)and a Belkin Wireless Router(model#F5D7230-4)for Camcast High Speed Internet. The Router...


Booster will only work along with access points in your case the belkin wireless router - you have to connect the device to the router not to the windows xp pc

if you know how to configure and the device are compatiable to each other and allows bridging or can configure as your access point client then you need not wanna to get it connected via wire or T568b standard ethernet cable otherwise you have to connect with this cable will enchance the wireless activity

Wireless signals can go down its strength by any magnetic activity, oscillations such as microwave, powerful steel/metal frames and check your anteena position keep in different direction and check your pc wifi signal strength.

Interlink between your router and booster with utp cables gives you steady flow of data and full band strength.

Aviod using two company devices change the router to Hawking
Thanks Hothawk

Acquiring ip address


you may need to set a key on your router and PC (recommended for security anyway). Access your router with your internet browser (default is often 192.168.0.1 - listed in your manual) and get the long default key. Put this key into your wireless card set up and reboot.
