    Whats the name of your wireless router ? Do you have a modem/router combo or is it separate router ?
    Have you tried Mozilla Firefox and if so do you experience the same problem ?

Ok, sounds to me like the security settings on your laptop for the wireless network card are configured in HIGH safety mode. The easiest way to resolve this is to:

1. goto control panel (start - settings - control panel)
2. open network connections
3. right click and select PROPERTIES on your wireless network connection
4. click on tcp ip (interent properties) double click it
5. goto advanced button (lower right hand side)
6. options tab
6. goto properties button for ip filter
7 uncheck (if checked) Enable ip filtering

that should fix ya up.

My toshiba satellite laptop won't connect wirelessly to Bigpond home network gateway. Bigpond reckon it's a toshiba problem


As a general test, see if you can ping the "router's configuration URL IP address". To do that go to a command prompt(DOS Prompt) and type in ping and the routers IP. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the router. Next try PINGing to www.yahoo.com or www.google.com. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the Internet. If not try sending a ping to their IP(the numbered) address. If you get replies you are OK conencting as far as the Internet, but you have a DNS issue. Big Pond can help you with that.

Cannot connect to internet although connected to hub at full strength


Assuming this is like a home network you should try unplugging the power to your wireless router for 5 seconds and then plug it back in. Sometimes your wireless router can have a problem handing out IP addresses correctly.

If it still doesn't work then try connecting to a different network, if it has a problem connecting to multiple networks then you probably have a hardware problem. You can call Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 or lookup your local ASP at support.toshiba.com for help.

Toshiba NB 205 connects to router but not internet


The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.

Not getting connected to the Broadband internet


Right click on the wireless LAN and then click Repair. Do this in the Control Panel - Network Connections. This will force the wireless LAN card to get a new TCP/IP address from your wireless router.
When you get this Limited connectivity message do a repair - this is a common problem - the wireless connection icon is also on your Task Bar, you can right click in it to do a repair.

Toshiba Satellite ethernet port disappeared...


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.
