Wireless on Toshiba laptop not enabling

I have a Belkin N Wireless Modem Router, model F5D8633-4, version 1000x and have been trying to get it connected to my Toshiba laptop for 3 weeks. I'm with Talktalk and at the end of a village exchange line. However I've had broadband for quite a few years. My laptop has used wireless elsewhere. Briefly the wireless was connected today via the Belkin support centre, then when I moved my laptop to another room, it disconnected. I then spoke to another Belkin person who reconnected me via run and control panel. I went to another room and it worked for about 15 mins then I lost the connection again. 2 Belkin people then tried to connect me via the Wireless configuration but on the last 2 occasions there were only 2 tabs coming up in Properties - General and Advanced. There was no option to view network connections(?). There was no tab for Wireless networks. I have been told that Toshiba need to enable the wireless connection for me. It has worked before but is not working at all now. I'm really not computer literate at all but I do my best. I've been using computers for about 20 years but I still get lost with the terminology. Please can you help in simple terms. I have a Toshibal Satellite Pro L20, model P5L25E-001006EN. It also says wireless LAN 0013CE609A00. I'd be so grateful.

    I'm not really too clued up with the technical stuff with computers. The wireless switch is on (and has been). I googled WLAN Utility but I don't know which download I need. Can anyone talk or take me through what I need to do to enable the connection or which download I need. The light is on but it's stopped working. Thanks

    This was the last solution but I hadn't realised that when I reposted I lost the original soluton. this was the second one: "Try what kakee said first. I've been reading other peoples complaints with the same router from the same ISP. Looks like it may be a talktalk issue. They assign your connection by the MAC address with the modem they send. Have them register your new router/ modem or do like the others and change your ISP. That corrected their problem." I can't through to Talktalk. When they are busy they just say their lines are out of service. Can you explain what the ISP is. I have no idea on technical terms. Please can someone explain as this is a foreign language to me. I just don't know where to start. I need someone who can spell it out for me simply what I need to do as I just don't understand the technical terms though I can follow instructions when I understand.

First, you have to turn on the wireless switch - beside the volume scroll, you will know it because of the wireless icon.
Second, in the task bar, click on the local area connection icon ==> wireless network connection ==>enable

if you do not know the local area connection icon, try to pass your mouse over icons in the task bar, and read the labels.

    To turn Wireless on off you need to hold down FN key and F8.

    If this works the wireless icon will pop up on the lower right hand corner in one or two minutes, and you click on the icon to find the network.

    If this does not work go to:

    Start button>>Control Panel>>System >>Hardware tab on top of system box,>>then Click Device manager.

    On device list click + on network devices and locate the wireless card, if it is not present or has a yellow dot, then you can try to reinstall drivers.

    Before reinstalling drivers you should check Bios settings, in there internal wireless card can be disabled, or MiniPCI port that hosts card can be disabled,.
    However I suggest to leave this part, if you mess up bios you can cause more troubles.

    You need to click on this link.



    Wireless Lan Driver

    The enable pop up from top bar on browser, you may need to do it twice.

    You will get a compressed folder, save it in my documents.
    When it is saved , unpack it , and locate the folder where you unzipped.
    In there there should be a Setup or Install file that you can run, that will install the driver.

    If drivers do not work, the the wireless card is faulty.

    Let me know if you use an external wireless card, in that case is different

First, you need to enable the wifi switch or wireless switch of your laptop. Normally there's a toggle switch that you need to turn on at the side of your laptop or on top of the Function keys. If there's no switch, there's a key combination that you need to press, sometimes it is Fn and F2 or Fn and F5. You can try that. If that doesn't work, you need to use the WLAN Utility of toshiba to connect to the wireless network. You can see it at the system tray.

What is the difference between windows 7 editions: starter, home basics, home premium,ultimate, professional,interprice?what is the difference between service pack 1 & 2???pc


Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    Screeen is upside down


    If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

    For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

    I hope this helps.

    Removing bluetooth chip


    Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
    However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

    A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
    It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

    Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

    B) Do you have a wireless router?
    Dunno.
    Do you have a wireless connection set up?
    No.

    You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

    C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.

    How do i reset my computer to an earlier date?


    Most computers have a RTC or "real time clock" in the BIOS. BIOS (or "Basic Input Output System") controls how data gets into and out from the processor (via keyboard, disk, etc.). Be careful making changes. The BIOS is normally only accessable when the computer is powered on or reset, and then only while performing the POST (or "Power On Self Test"). At this time your screen may display text describing memory, drives, controllers, etc. Some machine have a "silent boot" enabled which displays a manufacturer's graphic or logo instead of this data. It is during this time the the BIOS may be accessed. Depending on the manufacturer of your computer, a key (Delete, Escape, F1 or some other) or key combination (ALT + F1, ALT + S, or some other) will be needed. It is required to press the key or key combination prior to the Operating System loading message(s). This can be done be repeatedly pressing the key (or key combination) once every second (or two) during the POST. Holding the key(s) down the entire time - or pressing them too often will result in an error, and require starting over again.

    Once the BIOS screen is presented, you will have to scroll the entire page(s) to find the clock. Most BIOS brands have more than just a single page of settings. Using the the up, down, left, right, PgUp, PgDn & Enter keys - navigate to the clock hours and minutes and adjust as needed. Make sure that you SAVE changes before exiting the BIOS screen. Upon exit, the computer will reboot with your settings.

    Your Operating System may also provide a way for you to change the system time (and date) as well. Try clicking on the time / date to see if it will bring up a dialog box that allows you to make the change.

    I hope this helps and good luck! If my answer was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!
