How to load Integrated Wireless LAN on my toshiba satellite a45-s1202


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.

Ensure that the wireless network adapter is enabled. You can get there from My Network Places ' Properties or the control panel. If it is enabled, you should have an icon in the systray for the wireless adapter. Right click on the icon and select View Wireless Networks to select a wireless network to connect to.

Can't Get wireless to work


first: - goto the PC website and download the wireless driver
http://www.gd-itronix.com/index.cfm?page=Drivers:Selection&locale=en_US under XP it has this device GIGAWLAN V.5.2.0.117.07
HOW TO USE:

1. Download the .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.

2. Execute the downloaded file, and follow the instructions.

3. After the files are unpacked, the folder containing the extracted setup files should open automatically. The setup program (utility\setup.exe) is located in the "utility" directory and must be run to install the software

I would remove the wireless adapter from the device manager - right click and uninstall Now reboot the PC - it will detect new hardware, and start to install the wireless adapter, it should now automatically find the driver from. if not when asked browse to the extraction files
Hopefully the switch and light will now work - and wireless will be enabled

I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet either wirelessly or hard-wired. I have two other laptops, connected wirelessly, and a desktop connected via hardwire. It recognizes the router but says...


if you are trying through wireless, first unplug the wire from the laptop,

make sure that the wireless switch on your laptop is turned on.

click on start, control panel, network connections/network & internet/ Network and sharing center..

right click on wireless network connection Icon, if it says disable, it means it is enabled already.

then click on status..

from here the steps would differ from OS to OS

then click on Support tab (for XP)
check the address type, it should be "Assigned by DHCP"
and if you see the IP Address starts with 169., it is a bad IP and needs to disable the connection and enable it.

if the connection type is "Assigned Manually, right click on wireless network connection icon and click on properties and click Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on properties, in this window, check the option "Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP"

click ok and OK ..

again right click on the wireless network connection icon and click on view available networks... click on your router name and click on connect..

now check the functionality.

if you are using windows 7 or vista,

click on status, click on details for the IP Address..

We see DHCP Enabled as YES or NO instead of "Adress type"in XP

if it says no, it means it is assigned manually. to change to DHCP , right click on Wireless Icon, select properties, click on IPV4 IP address and click properties, then select obtain automatic..

then try again..

hope this works,

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.
