The bars on your wireless card indicates the signal strength that your laptop is receiving, the only way to increase the bars is to move your laptop closer to your wireless router access point, or move your wireless router to another location, eg higher, away from walls, especially concrete reinforced or metal/foil walls.
OR You can buy another wireless router access point that has a higher transmitting power, which will give you greater range.

The best way to make your laptop faster is to add more RAM, especially if it has 256Mb or less, ideally get a total of 1Gb, 2Gb if you can afford it. Most laptops have two memory slots, try to get memory for the same manufacturer.

To maintain you laptop, you should do a Disk Cleanup and a Defrag at least once a month.

Toshiba portege A600 notebook. wireless


unless you have a wireless router in your home; the msg "windows cannot find any wireless networks"

means any network in your area is too far away, or has a signal so weak your laptop is not picking it up as a viable source.

visit . www.filehippo.com and DL a file called Ccleaner. Run this program - it will clean all your internet caches and junk files, then run the registry cleaner. Reboot.
This can keep you from connecting.

Also try moving to different areas in your home and refreshing your wireless search.

if you are worried your wireless card may not be working properly, take it to a place like mcdonalds, or anywhere that has free wi-fi offered. if you still can not pick up a signal there you have narrowed it down to your wireless adapter.

you can also try this little program. Easy Wi-fi radar found here

I have Toshiba Portege 3110ct w/WIN 2000 installed. Have forgotten admin password- I added a wireless card and tried to set up a home network when I locked myself out inadvertently


Are you able to get in in Safe mode (F8 on boot) , maybe try Administrator with no password. Then you could reset your admin password.

Toshiba Portege Network Card Upgrade


Why uppgrade it? its cheaper to buy an USB wireless network adapter than it is to take down your laptop and upgrade it.
But it is possible as an answer to your question.

More signal and run faster


The only way to get a better signal would be to get an external wireless adaptor. I need to know what you are using and what kind of network you are logging onto. 
This is just one site that shows how many choices you have. If you can determine what you need for a network adaptor then just google the words wireless adaptor or wireless network adaptor. As i said this is the only way i know to get a better signal. 
Tip: N-network covers the largest area = best reception
