Re: problem with the modem

You shhould be able to right click on it in device manager and select enable, or press F2 or Del on boot up and enter the bios and look in the menu for your modem and select enable. If non of above work, right click again on your medem in device manager and select delete. Restart the laptop and let windows find your modem and it should automatically install the driver, if not when the option window pops up to manually install driver, point windows to the cdrom that the drivers are located on.

Wireless antenna or wireless router

Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 with Win7 and cannot connect to the internet via high speed modem LAN cable. Internet works on my other computer using the same LAN connection, but it is running XP. I

So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

I upgraded my toshiba NB200 from XP to Vista, but can no longer connect to the internet. Diagnostics is telling me that the computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed. It worked on XP....

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the LAN port on the Toshiba to your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) or to your home-router.

Then, run 'Windows Update', and look for "Optional Hardware" updates, which should include the correct device-driver for the wireless adapter.
