Satellite p35 will not go to wireless


Might not have a wireless card installed ??

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.

No issues like that.
Network should show up no matter what the OS is, if the wireless card is working fine.
If u r not able to connect after that, check the security settings in the computer.

How do i stop vista from saving public wireless connections? i can't get dialog box to change settings. vista sp2 on toshiba laptop.


Open the Network and Sharing Center by clicking on the connection icon in the system tray by the clock. At the bottom of the window it will say Network and Sharing Center. In the Network and Sharing Center, on the left side of the window you will see a selection for 'Manage Wireless Connections' Click on that. A window will open with all the wireless connections that have been made with your laptop. Select the one you want and at the top it will give you the option to delete it. Vista automatically saves all public connections for use at a later date. When a new wireless connection is made Vista will ask you if it is a public or private connection and will give you the option of saving the connection. I hope this helps.

You have two questions thrown. And I will try to answer one after the other. You said you have wireless card. If you have no WIFI in your location, your wireless card could not be used so you need a router from the Broadband connection which your satellite computer will have a wire connection from the router. If you have WIFI booster connected from the router, your wireless card will be used without wire connection direct from the router.

If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

Vista and xp network


  1. All computers should have installed and enabled file and printer sharing, which you can see and change in the properties of the network connection.
  2. All computers should have enabled file and printer sharing as an exception for the Windows firewall.
  3. Sometimes you need to install the IPX protocol on the network connection.

You will have several problems to install Windows XP in a computer designed to use Vista. I personally don´t think it´s fair.
But your problem possibly is not related with the OS. Are you using a wireless router? If yes, the problem may be your 4720´s wireless adapter (probably internal). You can test it by using another wireless network (most malls, shopping centers, airport or hotels have avaiable public wireless internet access).
