I have just recieved a toshiba L20 - 197. it was a present of a friend so i do not have the user manual. i was told that it has wireless internet but i cant seem to connect. does it require a modem or any...
This model has three ways of connecting:
- wireless lan (from a wireless router or Wi-fi)
- wired ethernet (connects to dsl or cable modem via network cable)
-wired 56K modem (connects from phone jack to wall jack-slowest)
Compliancy : Wi-Fi® <----------
Network Support : 802.11b/g integrated
Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN
topology : Ethernet LAN <--------
speed : 10/100 Base-TX
topology : international V.90 modem (V.92 ready) <------
speed : 56 Kbps data and V.92 data fax
Regardless of how you connect, you must first have a Internet Service Provider.
If you don't already have one, look in your LOCAL phone book under "internet", call a few and find out what they have to offer. If your just surfing the net, reading e-mails, etc. a 1.2m connection will suffice.
If your gaming, hosting a web site , or performing any other bandwidth consuming activity you might consider a faster connection.
The price per month is also a factor.
i usually take a few notes on price, availability in my area, speeds offered, features offered and wether they give me a free modem with thier service.
dont do 56K dial-up, you will beat yourself silly while you wait for the webpages to load.
