Right-click on your wireless connection in your tray. click disable.
you then should be able to just plug the ethernet cable into your laptop and windows will pick up the new connection down in your taskbar. click on it and make sure it is connected.

Let me know :)

Cannot connect to internet wireless

First things first, make sure the router you are using is wireless capable and you know the ssid and WEP to connect.

- check your wireless switch on your laptop.
- if you are using a router, try to connect it directly to your laptop to better isolate the issue.
- if its connected online wired to your router and you were able to connect to the internet, that means there's no problem with your router adn your internet connection its just that we have to make sure we got the right SSID (name of your wireless connection) and WEP (password for your wireless connection).
- you should be able to connect if those are checked

I can not se where the connection white from the lcd monitor goes to circuit board

The lead you are talking about, more than likely, is the wireless antenna wire. It has a tiny connector that preses on to the connection on the wireless card. The card usually has two connections one a black wire and the white. Use great care in attaching them to the card, as they can be damaged easily.

If this information was helpful, Please rate it. Thanks

I just recently got wireless internet. It was

Hard to say what the issue is based on the information you provided.. There are actually a lot of reasons you might have lost the connection.
I'd start by verifying that you're connected to the wireless network that you set up. Did you name it? Open your network properties and see what the icon for the wireless adapter tells you:
- Are you connected? - Are you connected to the proper network? - Is your network card "disabled" for some reason? Some laptops have a disable button that overrides the card so the wireless radio can be shut off quickly and easily. Make sure it's not been tripped. Usually laptops have an LED to indicate if the wireless radio is running.. usually blue.
note1: be sure to check the "order of preferred networks" and from that screen delete all wireless networks you won't connect to somewhat regularly and/or ones you've connected to accidentally in the past. Make sure that your home network is tops in the list.
note2: if you did not create your own name for your wireless network and are still running the default name, it's definitely smart to change that. Your laptop can easily get confused with other networks in the neighborhood that have the same name.
Hope that helps.

Does my laptop have wireless internet??

Basically they don't. They can be purchased and easily installed by opening the cover that contains it and inserting it just like inserting memory and then connecting the white and grey wires to the wireless card.

Lan wireless connection

identify moel # to better assist. for Toshiba, i own one , the config utility is only needed to search for a wireless first, then it will reset. sounds like you have too many wireless setup installed, go into the internet connection section and see waht wireless setups there are and delete same. you will want a new install.
\MAKE sure if you are using a wired connection hat same is turned OFF when trying to do a wireless.

Wireless connection

If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
