Check this Tip for an overview

  1. Connect your PC to your router using LAN Cable: be sure you can browse internet
  2. If you cannot browse check router config with your ISP
  3. Connect to your router using IP address you find for gateway in Network status
  4. Configure your router wireless section to match with your PC card
  5. Start removing security, broadcast radio signal, create a simple SSID as network name
  6. Check if router network is seen by your PC card (when you disconnect the LAN cable and activate the wireless card)
  7. If connection is established ( near the router) try different location
  8. Reconnect cable and reconfig adding security protocol (WPA-PSK recommended) use parameters compatible with your lan card

    Sorry for your English: it is NOT clear if you can connect to your Router with a cable and browse Internet.
    If you can THEN follow the TIP and previous instruction.

    If you do not control the router you have to contact the Access Point (= Router) administrator for WLAN protocol and Password.

Cannot install WiFi drivers on laptop


Sounds like the drivers are not compatible. Get new drivers or get a new LAN card or USB LAN dongle

Got my brothers old comp, reloaded windows now wireless wont work


Did you install a retail version of Windows? You should have used the restore disc that came with the laptop when you purchased it. That will solve driver related problems if your wireless card is okay.
Check Device Manager if wireless card is still there.
If you install a retail version of Windows, check the support website. Check the wireless card's manufacturer and contact that manufacturer so they can give you the driver for the wireless card.
If you install a retail version of Windows, installing the driver from the support website might not work.
If you used the recovery disc that came with the computer, it should work.

Acer 5101 wireless issue


Hello

Remember, the default restore disc that comes with the laptop has all the drivers for your notebook. You installed xp now, and most probably the drivers for your wireless is not installed. My advive will be to download the drivers for xp for your wireless. Then it should work fine.

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.

NEEDING A INTERNAL WIFI CARD


There are several that will work on that model.You can also get a wireless card that slides in the side that will work as well or better than the internal one.It will probably be cheaper than the internal one too.You can use a USB wifi adapter as well.

Lan and wireless driver for toshiba a135-s2246


Unfortunately, the Toshiba Satelite A135-S2246 was never designed to run XP, only Vista. Which is why you can't find any drivers for XP. The nearest you can get is to find a laptop running XP SP2 that is using the same LAN (ethernet controller) and WLAN (wireless ethernet controller), and see if they will work.

Here are the drivers I found for XP (please check which one's you are trying to install):

Atheros WiFi card driver:
http://www.wireless-driver.com/download/atheros/2007-7-23/Atheros-ar5bxb6-AR5424-mini-PCI-E-Wireless-Card-Driver-Download.htm

Intel WiFi card driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/default.aspx
You will need to search for the card that you have.

LAN (ethernet controller):
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=6&PFid=6&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#1
You can pick third or fourth from top depending on your preference.

Please remember that Toshiba, Microsoft, Atheros, Realtek, Intel and especially myself accept no responsibilty for what may, or may not happen when installing drivers not specifically designed for your system. All that said, I hope it works for you.
