Wireless not working

I have a toshiba satellite A 105. It won't connect to our wireless (my roommate's computer will, so it's not the router) and I have a wireless printer I can't connect to either.

    Haven't tried- jargon too technical- have no idea what any of this means or what to do or look for or what to do. SO maybe this would help if I knew what you were talking about.

Be sure Wireless Lan feature activated on your PC (check user manual).
Get network params from your Roommate PC (Protocol: WEP or WPA? Security key or Passphrase? Radio Band"A B G or N)
Replicate same info on your PC.
OR try connecting to a free access point (no password required)
if you have one available in range: Right click on Wlan Icon on Systray select "View available wireless network" connect to any unsecure network OR to a secure network if you know password

Try positioning your computer next to the router - or within line of sight of the router - see if the limited connectivity thing comes up. It probably won't. Then try placing your laptop at the same spot where your roommate(s) normally uses his or hers or their computers and see if that makes any difference.

Wireless signals can go thru walls, or bounce off of anything that it can't go thru - so we're all trying to catch a good bounce and hence, location matters a lot. Sometimes moving a wireless router can make a huge difference - like moving it from behind the TV to above the TV for better broadcasting (cause the signal ain't gonna go thru a TV's power supply). Anyway, that'd be how I'd go about troubleshooting this issue....

Toshiba Satellite 1905-S303 needs a wireless card.Whrer and what should be ordered?


Wireless cards come in a variety of formats and are available from Best Buy, Walmart, Target and half a dozen other locations. You can get a USB version or a PCIMCIA format that will work on your computer. These will work to connect to routers and some WI-FI hot spots. If your looking for something that will connect you to the internet without a wireless router or Hot Spot you need to get one from your cell phone carrier.

> says "limited access"

Ah, it _IS_ your wireless setup that is the problem,
because your computer has detected that the wireless adapter has _NOT_ been able to "connect" to any wireless access-point, such as your own wireless router.

If it is "new", take it back to where you bought it, and ask them to give you a demonstration on how to "view available wireless networks", and how to select a wireless network, and how to "connect" to the selected network. Take your wireless router, too, and its power-supply. So, they can setup the router so that it will work when you bring it back home.

I have a Toshiba lap top A 105. I have lost my internet


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.

Just bought a toshiba laptop and my computer is


Basically the wireless card in the laptop needs to be configured with your wireless router's setings.
To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

This problem is common.
This error message occures when the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. To get the wireless router to issue the wireless with a new IP address the connection needs to be repaired.

I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.

Amber,

My guess is, as you also have guessed, the internal wireless card. Since it is under warranty, there should not be charge for it but I don't know the details of your extended warranty.
