Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
In the past I could connect to airport (free) wi-fi on my Toshiba and in hotels to their paid wi-fi. Now the wi-fi won't work and it says that my wi-fi connection is controlled by another vendor. I have no idea what that means as I never purchase a vendor for wi-fi. As I said, I used to be able to switch on the wi-fi and pick up a signal and at a hotel I would simply need to pay. Now it won't even take the signal.
I think it is saying that the wifi "card" is set so that it is not being configured by windows.
Control panel > Network connections
Under LAN or High-speed internet you will see an icon labelled wireless network connection. Right click on this and then click properties. You will see three tabs at the top
General - Wireless Networks - Advanced
Click on wireless networks
There should be a tick-box saying Use windows to configure my wireless network settings. I expect that, in your case, the box is unticked which means that the software supplied by the vendor of the wifi card is configuring the settings. I find that it is usually more reliable to let windows do it.
So tick the box and click OK. You may then have to reboot.
