    My laptop has a built in wireless adapter. I live in an area where most people dont have wireless internet. It was built into my computer with xp and worked while my sister was using it wireless at school.

    Have you a wireless adapter in your laptop, and if so have you installed the drivers for this adapter?

    If you have installed the device drivers when you click on the icon of the wireless adapter do you see your wireless access point or any other assess points near you?

    Is the wireless adapter drivers compatible with your version of Windows (if it is not specific for your version of Windows it may not work)?

    If you can see other wireless access points near you, then your wireless adapter is working and the fault lies with the configuration of the settings on the wireless adapter and or your wireless access point.

Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Problem with Toshiba wireless conection


Hi,

If you have your router set-up with security enabled, you should try to re-set the router and then go back onto the routers "control panel" and re-setup the security. You can find out the correct way to reset the router and the correct address to enter into the browser to access the routers control panel by going to the router makers website and checking under Support
