    I have 2 Toshiba Satellite laptops. I have the identical problem on one computer (the computer that the Verizon technician loaded the Verizon software on) but the problem does not exist on the other computer. I never had an intermittent connectivity issue before switching to Verizon Fios and using their wireless router. Have you found any solution yet to the problem?

    I have the exact problem. I have to sit right by the router to be able to connect, but any other computer I use works all around the house!

Is your laptop running Vista and the desktops running Windows XP or they all running the same software??? Also your problem is the fios router they come set up to be on a automatic channel search so there always searching for the best channel and you probably live in a brick house....Go to the settings for the router you can get to them easy with the software they downloaded to your computer its the fios help icon on your desktop and you can change the routers channel go to 7 or 11... If you have any questions just let me know also please rate me if you get a chance..

Thanks,
Steve

What type of wireless PCMCIA card would I need for my gateway solo 5300 if I have verizon fios in my home? Thanks


Any type 1 or type 2 PCMCIA or PCCARD (Not Express Card) should work fine. However, due to the age of your computer, I would buy the cheapest card that support WiFi G. Wifi G is not only faster, but has a stronger and more reliable signal over version B.

Please note that I just found this article on the Internet about Verizon Fios which you may wish to check out first. http://www22.verizon.com/residentialhelp/fiosinternet/networking/setup/wi-fi/124650.htm

Good Luck

100mbps on my house computer but only 54 on my laptop


100mbps is just the maximum speed capacity that can be used and depends on the speed that you subscribed so it doesn't mean you'll get a sharp 100 mbps on that.

Windows Networking Issue


FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

My wireless connection won't work


Those pieces if data come from your FiOS gear. On the bottom of the FiOS Wireless and network set, is a serial number, and associated with that is another number, call it your password, but together they are the profile and Password with which you gain access to the FiOS Network, to allow you to get out to the Internet.
Check all installation papers you got from Verizon, as that information should be there, or call their help line. They are usually pretty good in helping you and FiOS is not off-shore, so you will get a good response.

Can not conect wifi or ethernet on my Toshiba after upgrade


Dear Mr. Frost.   Their are no VISTA drivers for your model listed on the Toshiba website. Their are four pages of Win Xp or 2000 If Toshiba didn't have them written no one else will either.     I would suggest that you downgrade back to  Win Xp.  Sorry. Your Toshiba model link below:  http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1484712&rpn=PSAA8U&modelFilter=+A65-S126&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=1484712|PSAA8U

Inspiron 6400 wirless connection


HI
If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser.
In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file,
Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection

also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.


thank you
