Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Wi Fi Connection/AC connection

I cannot access my home WiFi unless I am plugged into an AC outlet and charging. It has nothing to do with the charge... I think it is a setting (of which I know NOTHING!!) My son's Toshiba (same model) did the same thing until one of his friends "fixed" it! Don't know what he did.

Go into your Control Panel, then Power Options.... change the setting for the battery, it may make your battery life less. Also, go into Device Manager and Right click on the wireless card, under Network Adapters, and go to properties. On the last tab it should have a power option.... uncheck the box that says "turn off to save battery life".

SOURCE: Unable to connect to wi-fi

I think it is saying that the wifi "card" is set so that it is not being configured by windows.

In XP

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.

It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.
This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

SOURCE: "Plugged in, not charging", Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527, under Windows Vista Home Premium

I started having the same problem and worse mine would shut off without warning either from the battery running down or even just plugged in without a battery.

I thought It might be overheating so I got a can of air and cleaned all of the vents...and downloaded core temp to monitor the cpu temp @ http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/. Same problem shut down and no charging even though it was running cool.

Finally I started changing settings and it seems to be working and charging just fine.

Here's the answer:
1. Set your power scheme to balanced
2. Open Toshiba Assistant from start
3. In Toshiba Assistant open CPU tab and set to low power.
4. When asked "restart now?" say no and shut it down using the start menu.
When you start it back up you will see the change.

Changing either one of these settings brings the problems back. I can't explain it.

I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!

I just can't afford another laptop right now.

P.S. even at low power my system works fine...It's a little slower @ start-up but otherwise good.

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.
Hope this helps.

Not connecting to google server. Even there is wifi connection.


There is a difference between establishing a Wi-Fi connection, than the connection to your internet. Although you see a connection with your Wi-Fi, your Wi-Fi is just like a cordless phone connection. You remember those old rotary phones you would have to charge on the charger/ receiver (Which is connected to the phone cord outlet on located in the wall). Just as how WiFi works, The range is limited. Just because you have no problems with your WI-Fi connection, you may not have an internet connection on which it may have something to do with your ISP (Internet Service Provider). The best way to find if you are communicating out side your home network, Open the "COMMAND PROMPT" Type ; ping google.com (press Enter)

If you are communicating out side your home network you should get results like this displayed below;

Pinging google.com [216.58.216.46] with 32 bytes of data:

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

If you're not communicating out side your home network; it will display.

Ping request could not find host google.com. Please check the name and try again.

Wi-Fi is to connect your devices to the Gateway (Wi-Fi Router/Modem) which your gateway provides the connection to your internet. You are not having problems with your Wi-Fi, you're having problems communicating outside your home network. When this occurs, unplug your Gateway (Modem/Router) and check to see if it restores your connection. If this does not work, call your ISP to check for outages. Other situations is not paying your internet bill which may have caused your ISP to disconnect your service.

Is it possible to connect a standard DSL modem - without Wi-Fi (with 1 Ethernet port) and a DSL modem - Wi-Fi (with 4 Ethernet port) to broadcast Wi-Fi singles


Does the non wifi modem give out DHCP addresses?
Can the wifi modem be set up to receive it's IP address from DHCP?
If the answer to both these questions is Yes then that's what to do as a first step. Make sure the wifi modem DHCP service is disabled as it must NOT give out DHCP addresses.
Connect the ethernet port of the non wifi modem to one of the LAN ports of the wifi modem and NOT the DSL/WAN port. The wifi modem is not participating in any DSL connectivity at all so it's DSL light will remain off. The non wifi modem is doing the DSL duty so it's DSL light should be correctly illuminated.

With iPad must I join an internet even tho it is connected to my desktop usb?


Simply go to Settings-second down on the left menu, choose Wi-Fi and on the right menu, your home (or wherever you are) wi-fi connection should appear by name. Then simply touch the one you want to connect to. You should see the choice you made on the left menu next to the word Wi-Fi. I only connect my iPad to my computer to charge it occasionally via USB.

Wifi will not connect


i had similar problem with my netgear. had to access setting through internet explorer. should tell you you in your manual how to access yours. I turned off security settings and was able to connect. then turned the security back on and set password on both router and wi-fi devices. its been working ever since(about 1 year now). if you don't have your manual you'll have to go to manufacturers website, might have to take your I-pad to coffee shop to do that. also not sure if you can access the settings through wi-fi, might have to have a friend with a lap top that can plug in directly.

Where do i go to get a wifi conection


To conect to wifi, you'd need to buy a WI-FI USB connecter. They can be found at most video game stores for $37.00 (varies on location) They get plugged into your USB port on your computer, then they enable you to connect to wifi . If you have a Laptop the USB port should be found on the side.

If you just need more information off of what I've given you, read the bottom of my post for a recommended website for Wi-Fi.

When you get a USB connecter:

On your DS:
Once you have it plugged in, turn on your DS with a game that is compatible with Wi-Fi. In the game there should be a place where it allows you to adjust your Wi-Fi settings.
When you select that, two options should appear, tap on the one that is labled "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings" You'll see four options to chose from, you want to tap on the one near the bottom of the screen, it's shown as "Connect To Your Wi-Fi USB Connecter." The next screen will say for you to install your Wi-Fi connecter software to your computer

On your computer:(you must have internet connection on the computer)
Close your DS for now and turn your attention to your computer, insert the USB into the the USB port on your computer. The picture that is next to the port will look like this:

Install the software first, then a window will appear after the installation. Ignore it for now, and look back to your DS.

On your DS:
It should still be on the same screen you left it on unless your battery is dead (not recommended to conect to wi-fi with low power )
Tap "Ok" on your DS, It'll then launch a test connection. Look back at your computer screen now.

On your computer:
The box I told you to leave alone before will still be on, and now it should have your DS name inside it. Your DS name is what you entered your name as on your DS configuration settings.
Click on your DS name and select the option allow access. You can either allow or deny anyone access to connect on wi-fi through your USB.

On your DS:
Now that you have allowed access to your self on the computer, you can get back to your game and tap on "connect to Wi-Fi" this time instead of tapping "test connection." You'll then get a friend code that will allow you to interact with others who have connected with the same game.

Notes: For more about getting started,connected, and swapping friend codes, view this site: http://www.nintendowifi.com/global/AboutWIFI_DS.jsp
Also, if you've ever heard of a Wi-Fi hotspot, that just means you have to take your own computer or laptop with Your own Wi-Fi USB connecter to the certain area for free Internet service. This only means public areas, like at Starbucks or Panera Bread Compay, but then if you're doing this at a friends house then you just need to get your self registered access on their USB.
