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.

Download the latest firmware from: http://belkin.com/support
Upon searching, you will three versions of this model available. As you didn't specify the version, you may select the appropriate.
Download and save it your desktop
Open router interface using: 192.168.2.1
Under utilities, click on Firmware Update
Browse, Locate the file(.bin) from your desktop, click on update
Click on Restore Factory Defaults under Utilities
Try to re-configure the router and forward ports that you want.
If this doesn't work, Enable DMZ for the private IP address you want.
That should certainly work.
It could also be your modem that may be blocking> Check this too
Only if you have NAT enabled modem, try to use this router as an access point
This would surely work

My router is suddenly not working. The internet, modem, router and the wired lights are on, but the wireless and security lights aren't on and I can't connect from my laptop wirelessly.


check the wireless settings of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled.
If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router.
if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router.

I have a belkin fsd7320 router and dlink 302 and cant get to net


It sound like youe wireless card in the laptop is not configured correctly.
The TCP/IP settings on the laptop's wireless card should be as follows :-
In the wireless card's Properties - TCP/IP
Enablw - Obtain an IP Address automatically
Enable - Obtain DNS server address automatically

This is the same for the LAN card.

You must configure the wireless settings of the laptop manually. It should match the wireless settings of your router. If you have wireless encryption enabled, make sure to type the network key on the wireless settings of your laptop.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet


Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I have tried to install router strait from modem to router to toshiba l30 laptop belkin shows up on laptop showing excellent signal but when i try to go on web it cannot make contact


access your routers administration by right clicking your network icon and using your gateway IP to access http://*gateway*
un - admin pw - (none), admin, public
look at your status in the belkin administration settings and see if you have an ip and gateway for your ISP.  The ip and gatway on your computer is for your belkin.
Try directly connecting the laptop to the router with a cable and see if it's on the net. If it is then you have wireless settings wrong. See belkin.com for more infor about router.
