Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024 Notebook

Wireless cannot connect

I recently bought this laptop second hand and have not been able to get the wireless to connect. Might be a problem with the way the last person had it configured. The system comes with configFree software for connecting to wireless. When I launch it, it finds my home wireless connection but cannot connect. Message comes back saying another vender's application is controlooing the wireless. Not sure where to go to change this. Checked the Windows Wireless Icon and that says it cannot configure wireless connection and refers to using a WCZ service and article 871122 in knowledge database. I did not try this as they inply the Toshiba software is used in lieu of windows.
Can you help?

Go to Properties of Wireless Network Connection. You will see three tabs on top of pop up window, General, Wireless Network & Advanced. Select Wireless Network. Very first line has a check box, select it to use WIndows to configure wireless network settings. You do not need to use Configfree provided by Toshiba. Use Windows to set up your wireless is more preferable as it is standard widely used

There is a wireless button on your keybord platform area. Have you tried pushing it? It should have a little upright stick with commas on either side on the button (to look like a wireless signsl tower)?

I have recently purchased the wire/wireless


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Make sure your wireless feature is turned on on the computer. There may be a switch on the edge of the computer somewhere, you don't say what kind of computer it is.

Find the wireless connection wizard on your computer and run it. Find it in your network folder in the control panel.

If this is too much, post a comment to this question and we will back up and start over.

BTW, if your laptop has a ethernet outlet (looks like a big phone jack), you can wire your laptop to your router.

I want to help you with this problem

thanks

Intermittent Enabling


First you can try to uninstall and reinstall the driver of the wireless adapter on that desktop. Unplug and re-plug the wireless card. If it is a wireless PCI card, make sure the antenna is tightly screwed on. Install just the driver of the wireless card and not the utility/software that came with it. You can also try to change the channel on the wireless router by going to the router's user interface. If you're on channel 6, choose channel 11 and save the settings. Then power cycle the router, unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Check now if you can connect wireless.

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
