Question about Toshiba Satellite A200-0ET00X Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba Satellite A200 WiFi connect range extremely limited

Our Toshiba Satellite A200 is having great difficulty connecting to our home wireless router (Linksys). We have two other computers in the house (a Dell desktop and an Acer laptop) that have no problem connecting to the Linksys router from a distance up to 50feet [and through walls].

The Toshiba will only connect if it is placed within a few feet of the Linksys wireless router. We didn't have this problem until a few weeks ago.

We took the Toshiba to our local computer fix-it store, and they can't fix it because it works fine in their repair facility.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sometimes it is better to turn off firewall protection and limit your start up programs when you use wifi connection. Firewall protection is not recommended when using a wireless broadband or wifi because it blocks the signal especially on laptop computers.

I have a toshiba A45S150 OS XP and it will not connect with my home linksys wireless network Router.


The Atheros WiFi card that is in your machine doesn't support any form of "turbo boost" in the router.

Log into the router settings, Type this into a web browser 192.168.1.1.

The default username is usually "admin" and the default password "admin"

Once logged in you will have to remove the security settings Eg. set it to unsecured then change the access type to "Mixed mode"

Also check to see if there is a boost or range extender option and disable it.

That should fix it.

Once you can connect again resecure your WiFi

Wireless connection says connected limited


this may be due to the following reasons
dns server address incorrect
incorrect ip configuration
or the machine is not properly in the range of the wi fi adapter
if all the three are correct then contact your isp
because this is a problem with the connection

How to start wireless in Toshiba Satellite 1905 s 301


What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.
Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Please try the Canadian Toshiba Driver site: http://209.167.114.38/support/Download/ln_byModel.asp
Once you have selected your Model, click the Go button, a popup window will appear and the Wireless Drivers are at the bottom of that list.
Hope that helps
