Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

How to make the toshiba satellite a15-129 pc notebook wireless?


The first thing that you need tohave in order to get wireless internet is a wireless networking adapter.If you own a newer laptop, this is probably inside your computer as we speak.
If you don't own a wireless carddon't panic.
You can easily purchase oneseparately. They are relatively inexpensive. The best place to purchase a wirelesscard is eBay (opens new window).
There are two important thing thingsto look for in your wireless card.
1.Make sure it is a 802.11g card. They have 802.11b, 802.11a, and several others.Having an 802.11g will enable you to connect at much faster speeds and fromfarther away.
2.Purchase a wireless card that connects in the PCMCIA slot.
The next thing you are going to wantto get is high speed internet. It is possible to have wireless internet withdial-up, but it will be so slow it simply isn't worth it.
In order to have high speedinternet, you are going to need a cableor dsl modem depending on what internet you have. This type of modemwill not be found in your laptop.
There are many different types andbrands of modems out there. I have had no problems or complaints with the Motorola Surfboard. It's easyto set up and has lasted a long time now.
Other well known modems are Linksys and Netgear.
You can get cable/dsl modems muchcheaper on eBay. But make sure that all of the equipment comes in the box.Either order one that says new or contact the seller and ask them if all of thewires and cables are included.
The next thing on how to set upwireless internet is getting a wirelessrouter (opens new window).
This is the piece of equipment thatmakes things wireless. You can have high speed internet without a router. Butto be able to connect multiple computers and have your laptop have a wirelessconnection you are going to have to purchase a router.

Fortunately, routers are gettingcheaper and cheaper by the day now.
You can certainly find a nice wireless router on eBay forunder $30.
Similar to the wireless card, makesure you get a router that is 802.11g. This will allow you to connect fasterand from farther away.
Also, try to look for a routerthat has a connection of at least 54 Mbps. Ifseveral people will be using the internet at one time you may consider gettinga router even faster then that.
Once you have all of the necessaryequipment, it's time to hook everything up.
It's hard to explain precisely howto do this because each modem and router may need to be hooked up differently.
But the main steps on how to set upwireless internet are this...
1.Hook up wherever your internet is coming from to your modem. Your internetsource will vary depending on whether you have Cable or DSL.
2.Connect your modem to your router. This is the essential part of makingwireless possible.
3. Turn on whatever computer you havethat has a wireless card and enjoy your wireless internet experience!

Wifi


You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.

A35 internal modem does not work


There may also be a key combination on your keyboard to enable/disable it. check for that first.

If that doesn't do it then i would reinstall the wireless driver from http://pcsupport.toshiba.com for your model and see if that helps.

Most wireless issues are software not hardware but if none of that does it the easiest thing is to buy a PC card.

Good luck!
