Question about Toshiba Tecra 8000 Notebook

2 Answers

No connectivty to internet

My laptop has limited or no connectivity to wireless internet. I've done power cycles, restarted everything, reset my setting to a few days ago when it did work. My roommates' computers work fine and connect to our wireless. I called the cable company and he took me through a bunch of steps and said the issue wasn't with our internet connection or our router. I took my computer to starbucks to see if it would work there: just the same thing, high signal strength, tries to acquire network address, and then comes up as limited or no connectivity. My computer worked fine 24 hours ago, and I haven't done anything to it, so I don't know what's wrong. Please help.

Your problem is very indicative of an assigned ip address to your wireless card. Assuming you have windows xp as your operating system. Go to start, run, type in CMD, once the dos screen appears type ipconfig and look to see what your assigned ip address is.

I need help! my acer laptop is not connecting to my wireless network. I've tried just about everything. It connects and then it goes to the next network and connects to them and then down the list....


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
Firstly, you can try to check your ipadress: go to start search and type cmd, you will see cmd.exe on top then right click and run as administrator. Type in Ipconfig /all then check Ipaddress and default gatewate. If the its 169.1.1.254. then we need to type in netsh winsock reset catalog then enter. if its a valid ipaddress then just type in ipconfig /flushdns. then shutdown both your laptop and your router for 2 minute. restart then try IE or any browser..


Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. God bless. Bye for now.

If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS,(many problems with LINUX) .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)
follow this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart-Do check it out

If you continue to have problem..indicate at what point in the flowchart it is getting stuck

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this

When your network shows limited connection, it could be that you system did not pick IP address from your DHCP server. so it assigned itself a public IP address. In this case make sure your system has the correct networking setting and it can reach the DHCP Server. If you are using a modem, the service from your service provider may be poor in your area.

Try resetting the network adapter.

On the bottom right hand side of the desktop you will see the wireless icon, right click on that ans click on troubleshoot problems. This will reset the adapter and assign an IP address for your your PC.

When its done try to connect to the internet.

Try connecting to another wireless connection... if it connects to another connection and you get to the internet, then it is something with your wireless router or modem. Your PC can "see" a wireless connection, so it is NOT PC hardware.

It sounds like you can connect to the router, but cannot go through the router to get to the internet. Probably a simple issue with your modem or router. Try power cycling the modem, and power cycling the router. Then restart your PC and try connecting again.

If all that fails, try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that will get out to the internet. It may be a problem with Internet Explorer.

u mean to say, u r using wireless for internet access right.
Well if u r using XP, and if u r having some trouble in accessing internet, then there might some problem with the components of wireless card. so if u want to fix them, u can fix them with a simple trick.
Go to My Computer's Properties
Go to device manager,
open the tab named NETWORK ADAPTER.
u'll see ur wireless adapter listed. select it & select Uninstall.
Dont worry, just continue reading.
when u click on uninstall, u'll be asked whether u r sure to remove the device from ur computer, meanwhile u'll be given a marking space named UNINSTALL THE DRIVER FOR THIS HARDWARE.
Dont remove the driver, simply uninstall the wireless adapter.
Now its removed.
Now restart ur system, after it starts ur computer shows a ballon named, NEW HARDWARE FOUND and it will automatically install ur wireless adapter,
So ur wireless adapter is fixed by now.


and if u r using Vista, its quite easy there.
go to NETWORK & SHARING CENTRE
go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS u'll find 2 connections.
one will be named as Wireless something.
ENABLE it & click DIAGONISIS
after its completed, select RESET ADAPTER
Its done.

Hope it worked u out.
Thanks..

Samsung NC10 will not connect to any network


If WLAN and Wireless cards are enabled, then you may have to unplug your router for 10 seconds to reset it. They tend to build up a static charge. Unplug wireless router for 10 seconds, plug back in and you should be fine in a minute or two with full connectivity
