I have toshiba A300 1EC model and it is brand new. I have internet connection 512Kbps speed in our room. We three are sharing and using wifi connection. For me, it is detecting and connecting also but browsing internet(speed is slow), downloading mails (taking time) and while talking through VOIP calls (call is disconnecting and VOIP window get log off and getting logging ON late), it is giving problem. But, for other two, it is working fine. Based on a technical guy advice, i upgrade Wifi driver INTEL to latest version 12....... through website and before it was 11. ..... but still the problem is same. PLEASE HELP TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE.

    My husband has a Dell laptop and navigates through the internet really fast. First my toshiba takes forever to open up any browser, takes a long time to open pages. Also if I have several tabs open if I select one of the tabs to navigate to that page it takes forever. I have uses internet explorer, mozilla firefox, and safari browsers. My husband and I can navigate to the same web address and his loads a seconds while mine lingers.

Internet shuts when i download!

is your PC on DHCP or static?
perhaps try putting PC on static and see if this helps.
perhaps try reseting router to factory default and try again.
Looks like for some reason your PC is trying to pick new address every time you download which could be coincidence.

But try with static first and restore with factory default.

Let me know how it goes.
