Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S151 Notebook

3 Answers

Reinsalled windows xp on toshiba notebook -- now wireless won't work.

I have a Tohsiba Satellite a45-s151, and recently wiped everything clean and reinstalled windows xp. Now it detects a wireless network, but i can't connect to them. Under device manager there's a red x next to "Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection," but because I am not a tech wizard, I have no idea what to do about it (although I suspect I might need to download a driver, but where to get it?)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Matt

    Thank you for the reply.

    I am trying to connect to a MacIntosh airport. It is password protected, but I have never needed a network key before. However, to answer your question, yes, it has asked me for a network key. I've tried our password, but get the error message saying it requires a hexidecimal or ascii key of a certain number of characters.

    I am away from home now, so sorry for the sketchy details. However, I have no idea how to ascertain this key it's asking for.

    Thank you for the link -- it is helpful. However, I'm not sure which to download. None refers to my problem specifically -- as I said, I have a red x next to "Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection."

    Not sure which driver will fix this.

I still have the same problem.

I installed the driver. No more red X -- but still no Internet.

I tried to connect directly using an ethernet cable. That didn't work either.

I ran an ipconfig /all command. Here were the results:

host name: toshiba user
primary dns suffix:
Node type: unknown
ip routing enabled: no
WINS proxy enabled: no

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix:
Description: Intel(R0 Pro/100 VE Network Connection

Physical address: 00-08-0D-32-1C-F8
DHCP enabled: Yes
Autoconfiguration enabled: Yes
Autoconfiguration IP address: 169..254.254.67
Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway:

Any help is much, much appreciated.

Hi Matt,

When you try to connect wirelessly to your network did get any pop up message like asking you for a network key WPA/WEP? if your wireless network is security enabled then you need to enter the security settings again on the computer since you re-installed XP the security settings that was saved previously was also wiped out.
May I know the exact model number of wireless router/access point that your trying to connect your laptop so that I can provide you with instructions on how to retrieve the security key.

Cant find ram chips in a Toshiba Satellite A45-S151


The memory is under the keyboard on this laptop. You should be able to pry up the keyboard with a small screwdriver between the keyboard bezel and the keyboard itself.

Be very careful not to break the wires connecting the keyboard to the internals of the computer.

I hope this helps.

Keyboard key not working


If it is just one letter then you most likely have a bad keyboard.

Try an external keyboard, if the 'c' is still not working with the external then it's probably some weird software issue. But, if the 'c' is ok on the external you will probably have to replace the keyboard. Replacement keyboard are pretty easy to find on ebay or the web and are usually very easy to replace.
