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.

My sony vaio won't connect to the internet


We would need more information. You might be connecting via wireless and there is a function key or wireless turn on switch on your lap top. I would have you refer to your service manual as you left no model information.

Get connection to internet


Connections to the internet can be tricky. It depends on how you connect- modem, lan,or wireless. If wireless, is it at home, or at a hot spot. If you are connecting at home, try shutting off your wireless switch on your laptop.(if you can), then shut off (unplug) your router, plug it back in, and then plug in the lan (ethernet) cord, and reboot. It should find your connection. You might also go to control panel, then to internet options, then to connections. See if there are any listings in the box. You might have to change things if there is one that says "use this connection first" or something like that, if you are trying to connect otherwise. Then go to lan settings, and uncheck "automatically detect settings". For a modem you need to make sure the modem is installed in devices (in control panel) and then make sure the software, from your internet provider, which will tell your laptop which number and how to connect, is installed. If you are using a wireless connection, do as instructed above and uncheck "automatically detect settings." and make sure your wireless switch is on. Occasionally there are conflicting connections, or possibly unsecure wireless connections "remembered" in your system that may have changed. Right click on your wireless icon on bottom right, then network and sharing center, then manage connections. You may want to delete the ones you don't recognize, or the ones you don't use anymore, as you can always connect again if you want to. If you are having trouble connecting to a particular connection, remove it from that list and then try connecting again. I know a lot of this sounds difficult, but like I said, connecting to theInternet can be tricky.

Please follow this steps carefully

Turn on your internal wireless card?
If your wireless card is built in to your computer, there may be a switch on computer that turns the card off and on. When new from the store, these switches are often in the "off" position. They can also accidentally get switched off during use. Find the switch (often near a symbol that looks like a microphone or radio tower emitting radio signals), and turn it on. The card should now find wireless networks in the area and connect.
.

Find the scrldcolville network?
If your wireless device is properly installed, your computer should automatically start scanning for networks in the area and will inform you that there are wireless networks present. If not, you can scan for networks in the area manually.
*To bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu, go to the Start Menu (in the lower left-hand corner of your screen, choose "Settings," then chose "Network Connections," and finally, choose "Wireless Network Connection." Clicking on this option in the menu should bring up a window. In the upper left hand corner of the window under the heading of "Network Tasks" there should be an option that says "Refresh Network List." Click on this option to search for wireless connections. Choose scrldcolville, hit the "Connect" button in the lower right hand corner and enter the passkey to connect.

Enter the passkey correctly?
If the passkey is entered incorrectly, the computer will appear to connect to the internet, but will not actually connect. If you think you may have entered the passkey incorrectly, disconnect from the scrldcolville network (see steps above in #5) and then reconnect. Often, as you manually reconnect to the network, the computer will remember the passkey and a small window will pop up, showing the password as a line of dots. Re-enter the passkey correctly before connecting.
(#6, cont.): Sometimes, your computer will not allow you the option of re-entering the passkey when you reconnect to the network. If this happens, bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu. Click on the "Change advanced settings" option under the "Related Tasks" heading. Another window saying "Wireless Network Connection Properties" should pop up. Click on the "Wireless Networks" tab at the top of the window. Under the "Preferred Networks" heading, there is a box that lists all wireless connections your computer has ever used. Click on the scrldcolville network to select it. Now hit the "Remove" button just below the box, then hit the "Ok" button. This will make your computer forget the scrldcolville network and the bad passkey. Bring up the Wireless Network Connections menu again and connect to scrldcolville .Be sure to enter the passkey correctly.

Allow your computer to obtain an IP address automatically?
Be sure that your computer is set to obtain IP addresses automatically and that it does not have one assigned manually. To do this, bring up the Wireless Networks Connections menu .Click on the "Properties" button. Here, you will see a list under the heading "This connection uses the following items." Scroll down the list until you see an item named "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)." Select this item and hit the "Properties" button just below the list. This will bring up a new window. In order to connect with the library's wireless device, you must have the option "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" selected (ditto for the DNS server address). If you are set with a manual IP address, you can click the button to obtain your IP address automatically (ditto for the DNS server address.) Be aware that this changes how your computer interacts with other networks. If you need a static IP address on other networks, you may have to reset your IP address again later. However, your computer cannot connect to the library's wireless network unless it obtains its IP address automatically from the library's wireless device.
Make the Windows wireless configuration your default configuration?
In many computers, Windows acts as the default wireless network configuration program. However, if you have an external wireless card, or if your computer has a secondary program enabling it to connect to the wireless network, you may discover Windows will not recognize your wireless connection program and visa versa. Sometimes, if you have a non-Windows program that runs your wireless card (for example, a Linksys driver for an external Linksys wireless card), the non-Windows program will connect to the wireless device, but Windows will not recognize that this secondary program has connected. You will need to allow Windows to control the wireless configuration in order for your computer to fully recognize the wireless connection. On way to solve this problem is to tell the secondary program to "stand down," as it were.
On some computers, an icon for your secondary wireless program will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the taskbar on your desktop. You can click on this icon to open the program options. Certain programs will give you the option to switch to Windows as the default manager of your wireless connection. This will allow you to use the Windows Wireless Network Connections menu to make changes to your wireless connection.

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,

One tip for you is make sure you are using one software to run your wireless card, either remove the software for the wireless card and let windows configure it, or tell windows you have a excisiting software that will control your card, it sounds like software conflicts one is turning on other is tunring off and so on.
