Need ESSID and WEP info for a Toshiba Satellite A205

My laptop did not come with a user guide and I'm trying to set up my wireless network, which tells me I need that info from the user guide. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks. The computer is not actually mine, but a friend's and she's flat refusing to contact Verizon for help in setting up the wireless modem she received today. I am not a computer tech, nor do I play one on tv. :) I don't run Vista so I have no clue where to tell her to put in any information that is needed.

The users guide for your laptop won't have information about ESSID or WEP for any wireless networks you are trying to connect to. SSID is Site Security Identification. That is the name of the wireless network you are connecting to and WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy and is a key that is set up on the wireless network that if you don't know that key you can't use that wireless network even if you know the SSID. Each wireless network will have its own ESSID and WEP settings. If you control (I.E. you have the username and password for that router) the wireless router that you are settings up you control what the ESSID and WEP settings are. If you purchased the wireless router that you are trying to connect to, you might need a users guide for that router or if the company you get your Internet from owns your wireless router, you need to contact them concerning the setup of that wireless router.

Hope that helps.
Good Luck

Satellite Pro P300 won't connect to wireless network.


The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Cant find my wifi code to open a network


Your WEP is the security key you set in your router to allow other authorised devices to access your network. When you set it up, you set the WEP to protect your network from others accessing it without the key. So now all you have to do is set the WEP (security) key in your laptop the same as your router and you're cookin'. The same key must be used to connect any thing, iPhone, Wii, Play Station, anything that has WiIFi capabilty.
