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.

A friend installed vista the computer had been

1st connect with landline cable. Make sure all is working fine. Then enter a command prompt. (Start-Run->cmd {Enter}) Type "ipconfig". The gateway should be either 192.xx.xx.xx. or 10.xx.xx.xx. If you have a small network then your gateway is probably your wireless router. If your router is not your wireless device you will have to find it using ipscan.exe or scanner.

Let's say for arguments sake that your gateway is your wireless device. Open up a browser windows and input the gateway as "http:// gatewaynumbers ". At this point you need to check your wireless settings.

You need your SSID, Wireless Security (WEP, WPA, etc.) encryption, and passphrase" from your wireless router/access point.

(Note: unless you are the only one using the router try not to make any changes until you clear it with other users)

Check to see if your router has mac filtering on or off. Off is better while troubleshooting. Another term for MAC address filtering is Wireless Card list, there are others but it depends on the router you are using. If MAC or IP filtering is on then you will NOT be able to connect to the SSID unless you are on the list... hence disable for now is good idea.

Disconnect from wired landline (you should not have two connections wireless and wired at the same time). Assuming that your Wireless device driver is working properly (see Device Manager under network devices) you should be able to right-click your wireless device on the taskbar and select view available networks. You should see SSID here. Input your info and you should be good to go.

If not you will have to enter SSID manually in the Network Connections area. Right-click Wiress Connection from Network Connections and Select properties. 2nd tab should be wireless connections. Click the Add button and enter your information and click OK.

To test you should be able to go to a command prompt and type ipconfig and get numbers similar to when you had landline connected. To test your internet connnection type " Ping" and you should get 4 replys. Hope this help. Best Regards, -

My built in wireless is not working.

There may be button that switches on wireless on the keyboard or on the side of the machine.

Also try the FN key plus the correct Fkey with the wireless symbol

no you are probably unaware that you have connected to a neighbours connection who stupidly has not security encrypted the router.

It is illegal to use somebody elses connection without their permission, so i would suggest turning off the wireless adapter (slider button at front of notebook) until you get your own wireless connection.

Can not connect to wirless router

Whether you are using a notebook or a desktop PC you have to run windows network setup wizard. The PC & notbook must have a wireless network card installed inorder to connect to the wireless router. Though most people who use a desktop PC hook directly to the the wireless router through a Rj45 cat5 or cat6 patch cable. Reason being a desktop PC is less likely to be moved around. Read & follow instruction while in network setup wizard. Windows does most of the work for you. One suggestion. If you do not setup security for you're wireless, anyone near you will ba able to tab into you're wireless network & steal you're signal. You will be asked to setup a password. (Do not loose you're password)!

What are the step for setting up you computers to a network using a Linksys router. I have a 2 PC's and a laptop that I would linke to net work together. My first computer is connect to the Wireless-B...

Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.

Good Luck! Take your time.
Have more questions, feel free to ask.
