I have a Toshibe Satellite 1400 notebook. It was working with a D Link wireless router and now the icon for wireless is not showing under connections. Why would it work and then not work?

There is a wireless ON / OFF Switch on the right side of the laptop, this needs to be on the ON position for the wireless to work. Next to it is a wireless status LED light should come on this led when the wireless is enabled, if switching the switch to ON doesn't help turn the computer off and make sure the switch is on On position and power on the laptop. Wireless LED should light up atleast when you are at desktop if it doesn't light up. Turn the laptop off and start up again, now repeatedly move the switch from off to on during windows start up the led should come on, when the led comes on leave it on the ON position.

Sorry but i forget my password


The default user name for this model router is admin and the default password is password. The default SSID is NETGEAR. You can verify your router settings by going to Click the wireless settings link and verify that the router settings are the same as those in the wireless computer. NOTE: The settings are case-sensitive - NetGear will not work in place of NETGEAR.

1st.: check to see if there is a wireless button on the outside of the computer. Some have this option to turn it on/off and it's easily overlooked by many.

2nd.: Right click "my compuer" and go to manage. Go to "device manager" and find your card under the "network adapter" tab. If it is disabled, double click it to enable it. If it has a yellow flag on it, you will need to download and update the driver.

This problem is common.
This error message occures when the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. To get the wireless router to issue the wireless with a new IP address the connection needs to be repaired.

I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.

WLAN is not working


Hi masif - please don't rate this yet! Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug in your modem. After the modem lights return to normal, plug in your router. Give it 15 seconds and then try it. Let me know what happens.

Network Cable Unplugged


This is odd as the connection icon with the cross on it refers to a wired connection and not wireless. Right click the icon then select dissable. Go to your wireless card in network connections and right click then connect. Also go into your routers properties and see if it is allocating your wireless card an IP address, this should show along side your other PC's allocated IP addreses.
