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.
First of all you need to know a few things:1) Is the wireless part of the wireless modem configured by the BSNL installer?2) If installed then what is the Authentication ID and Password and what should be your IP address?3)If no get the configuration done.4)Is the Wireless adapter driver installed in your PC?if yes then you need to switch on the wirelwss by pressing the Wireless ON/Off button and configure the IP address and connect. If No then please install the driver from the Driver CD provided at the time of purchase or download the same from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3934829&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3934828&taskId=135 and install the driver and restart your PC. Now follow the above steps to connect to wireless network.

Check which communication port
and interrupt your modem is set to use. Typically, these are hard-wired
selections on the board itself. Changing the jumpers on the board
changes the port address and interrupt number. You must give forethought
to the consequences of the decision. There are only two interrupt lines
usable and four port addresses that are possible. Only one port can
utilize an interrupt number at a time.
Change the port and interrupt
assignment if required. Restart your system and see if this solves the
problems. If not, find the documentation for your modem. You must now
generate the proper initialization string for your modem to maximize
your communications. Some of the settings in the initialization string
determine the audible sound of the modem when dialing and connecting.
More important settings have to do with number of rings to wait before
hanging up, time to wait between redials, sensitivity of the modem to
line noise and enabling or disabling the transfer mode of X2 or V.90
(the two formats for 56K communication).
Find the modem driver that you
are using and check that it is the correct driver. There are many
drivers available based on manufacturer and model of the modem. Not only
is the driver modem specific but also the recommended initialization
string. Make sure your modem receives the correct initialization string
in the setup file or preference window in the application that uses the
OK based on the IP address you've given me I can tell that your network card is not getting an IP from the cable modem. The IP you have there is automatically assigned by windows in the absence of a proper DHCP server.
You have 2 options now you can try to manually assign the IP address and connect to the modem or if u have the CD that came with it you can connect to it using a USB connection (most modems have a usb port) and configure the modem manually to give you an IP or at least see what address range it is using and configure your PC to suit.
If you don't have the CD and USB and you want to manually assign an IP address to your PC most modems tend to use 1 of 3 address, you can try either: 192.168.1.1 192.168.0.1 10.0.0.1 to connect to the modem (if you use a ping command from the command prompt with any of the above addresses the one that replies is the ip of ur modem)
and manually configure your PC network card with either 192.168.1.25 192.168.1.25 10.0.0.25
Its a little technical i know but you should be able to do it Hope this helps you.
If this doesn't work we can try a "tracert" command next to see if we can determine the modem IP
And then you can download a program called "Driver genius" from link
it is a trial program for 15 days
dont worry we only need it for 5 minutes
Install & run the program & in the windows click on the update the drivers
It will check & it will give the window with the drives that needs to be updated & it will not update a it is a trial one.
So you just right click on the driver name, you will get a message called 'copy url address 1' copy that & open the orbit downloader & click on the create new download & paste the link the drivers will be downloaded for free.
Some sites give these drivers only for the money & we cannot be able to find them from the free sites, so i think this would be a nice trick.
