Unplug your power from the modem first and after that unplug your power to your router, disconnect all your cat5 cables and wait for at least 20 secs. After 20 secs or so go ahead and plug your power back to your modem and wait until all the flashing green lights are solid and that the link light starts blinking. After that plug in your Routers power (You can also reboot your PC while this is going on) . Wait until all blinking lights becomes steady then re-connect your cat5 from the modem to your routers uplink and last the cat5 cable from the router to your PC. If you'd rather not test the direct connection then go ahead and switch your wireless on.

Your wireless connection properties on your PC under "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" should be set to "Obtain IP address automatically" and that "Obtain DNS server address automatically" should also be set. Your routers should, if not already, be set to automatic DHCP. Make sure that on your Device Manager > Network Adapters that your wireless network adapter is not disabled and that it has the correct driver (yellow exclamation on it indicates it needs correct driver). You should disable your integrated ethernet LAN card if you have enabled your wireless Network Adapter to avoid conflict.

On your Wireless Network Connection properties under "Wireless Network" tab go to "Preferred networks" and highlight your wireless network name (SSID) . After highlighting click on the "Advanced" button and select "Access Point (infrastructure only) networks only"

    Router;

    Check that your Internet Connection Type is "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" and that DHCP server should be enabled under Network Address Server settings. Under Wireless Network Mode select "Mixed". Create and type your wireless network name (SSID) . Wireless channels can be what ever range you would prefer. Wireless SSID broadcast should be "Enabled" so that once you turn on your PC wireless it would become visible and available.

    PC;

    Check the properties of your wired and wireless connection and make sure they are not disabled, if so enable them.
    Click on Start > Connect to > Show all connection

    Right click the wireless connection and select properties
    Under the "This connection uses the following items" look for and highlight "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" then click the "Properties" button.
    Make sure that "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are the only ones selected then click "OK".
    Click on the "Wireless Network" tab. Make sure your wireless network is listed (Under Preferred networks) and is at the top of the list, if not move it up, if not there Add. Click "OK"

    Right click the Local Area Connection wireless connection and select properties
    Under the "This connection uses the following items" look for and highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" then click the "Properties" button.
    Make sure that "Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are the only ones selected then click "OK".

Don't have wireless connection on my Toshiba notebook.


Make sure the drivers are installed for your wireless adapter. XP sometimes overlooks adapters during installation. Check the Device Manager for any yellow exclamation points. If you find one, uninstall it and click on the top item (your computer). Right-click the same device and then click Scan for Hardware Changes. You should have your drivers disk ready. The device will likely install, but be unable to find drivers. Point XP to your drivers disk and it should install the drivers for you.

BTW, if you don't have a drivers disk, check your system BIOS for the chipset and google for "<chipset number/name> Windows XP drivers". You should be able to find the drivers and download them from the wired connection before trying the above instructions for reinstalling the wifi drivers.

I hope this helps!
Regards,
CharlieJ
