My toshiba satellite p305-S8830 17" with Vista has internet probs

Every time I turn on my notebook I can count on network connection snafu's. The router sees the computer but the notebook does not see the network and I have to reboot 1, or2 times before successfully connecting to the internet. Diagnose and repair says unplug the router power cord for 10 seconds.... which I do and that usually works. But wtf? This is a 3 month old computer and this problem started in the last month.

    I have another computer connected at the same time via the router and it is a notebook with Vista. Sometimes I use a third computer, a desktop with XP, as the second computer connected via the router. My Notebook has Vista on it.

    Sorry, The other computers connect just fine. My problem just started in the last month. No new software or 3rrd party apps have been installed in that time.

    Do you have any other computers that are receiving a connection from the router? If so are they fine?

    Also, what operating system are you using? Windows XP or Vista?

How to load Integrated Wireless LAN on my toshiba satellite a45-s1202


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.

Your Toshiba Satellite Pro might be using a specified IP address. Try to set it to obtain an IP automatically. Depending on the Windows OS, whether it is XP, Vista or Windows 7, go to your Control Panel then Network connections or Network Sharing Center and double click on the Local Area Network connection (if your are using wired) or Wireless Connection. Look for the TCP/IP protocol and make sure it is enabled as "Obtain IP address Automatically" and "Obtain DNS addresses automatically". Then click OK to save settings.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

The router you're trying to acess may not be set up for Vista or may not be compatible with Vista. I had to upgrade the router at my shop in order to work on Vista OS machines.
