I recently reformatted a toshiba Satellte A105 and reinstalled windows. I got the wireless driver for networking offline, and the machine will connect to the network, but not the internet. All other machines connected to the network have internet access. Can you help me?

Search eBay for windows XP. Buy a copy that comes with a CD key and install. You might try a copy that says it will just reinstall using your existing *********** if you know it. You can use Keyfinder by Magic jellybean to find the existing key and write it down
Go to a friend, neighbor, or your local library and download the lan drivers to a flashdrive from www.toshiba.com and install them on your computer. Then you will be able to connect to the internet from you computer and complete the drivers download from Toshiba. Happy hunting and please let me know how it goes.
It is possible to disable the wireless connection with the keyboard. Try the combination of Fn and F8 buttons (this is a common Toshiba shortcut) to turn it back on. If that doesn't work, look at your Network Connections (through the Control Panel, assuming a Windows OS, if needed). Check the settings and if it is enabled. In the device manager, check if the wireless adapter has an exclamation point in a yellow triangle. If you have the exclamation point try letting Windows repair the driver. (You may need to access the Toshiba website for the correct driver. Either use a different machine and put the driver on a disc or USB driver or your machine's wired connection.) If that tells you it has no problems, remove the wireless connection (and uninstall the driver) and reboot the computer and it should see new hardware and start reinstalling the driver. Then you can try to establish a new wireless connection.
If the above solutions do not help, it's likely to be a hardware failure. You could get a new wireless adapter (USB or an appropriate card for your laptop add-on card slot), use the wired network (if that has worked), or consider a new machine.
Did you reinstall from the Toshiba-supplied "System Recovery" CD-ROM, or from some other "retail" Windows XP CD-ROM ?
The Toshiba CD-ROM contains the device-driver.
Toshiba's web-site also contains the device-driver,
for use in a situation like yours.
Within Device Manager, look at the "Unknown Devices" branch.
Expand that branch, then double-click on the '?' device,
and choose "reinstall driver", and allow Windows to connect,
via Ethernet cable connected to a router, or to a cable-modem, or to an ADSL-modem, to the Internet to find and download the correct driver.
this happened to me alot when i would get a virus.......usually bad news.....i had to reinstall windows everytime. but first i would check to make sure the network drivers are the most recent versions.
You will have to run the home or office wizard on your existing connection to start using internet. You can activate the wizard through the network connection icon in control panel. There inside the network connection window on left side, u can see the link to it. Follow the steps. Ignore disconnected hardware if any. Do rate my reply... Thanx n regards
Check in the device manager to see if the network drivers are installed for the ethernet controller and network or wireless controller. If there is a yellow question mark by any device, then it needs drivers. If the are there, then unistall them and reboot. The machine will find the devices and reinstall the drivers automatically. If they are not, then follow the link bellow to download the drivers. There are several A105 models, you will need to choose your exact model, then it will take you to the driver list.
