Question about Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7230 Laptop
Loses connection with wireless router, and shows an unsual, random IP-address AND MAC-address when viewing the "details" of the WLAN-network connection. Was working for a short time prior ( even accesses the internet ) but just suddenly loses its wireless connection. If it does connect to the WiFi, Windows7 says it is an "unidentified network" when its connect-profile states it is connected to our home SSID. Tried a USB WLAN adapter with its own driver CD, and ended up with the infamous Windows B.S.O.D., but manages to reboot on its own. We did save a text copy of the system error msg to a text file. This computer has had a replacement hardrive within its first 45-day use due to the original harddrive crashing and becoming unrecoverable. Laptop worked fine for a while, but now these networking issues. This machine is barely six months old and is giving us these problems already. Any ideas (I am thinking it is a hardware problem - being that I am aware that there were some problems with some earlier models).
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The problem is not Vista, the problem is the Netgear. I have seen this happen time and time again with both Netgear (primarily) and D-Link (often). That's why I *only* recommend Linksys.
Worst case - go buy one from Walmart (yes, they have 'em). Hook it up and see the difference. If, somehow, the problem persists, take it back, and you've lost nothing. But I'd bet (as they say down here in the South "dollars to doughnuts") that's your problem :)
Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

SOURCE: Problem connecting to router
Log into the Belkin router and make sure that the DHCP services are running. If it is, and you still are not getting addresses, perform a factory reset of the router. There is a link in the web management console to do this.

This problem is common.
This error message occures when the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. To get the wireless router to issue the wireless with a new IP address the connection needs to be repaired.
Right click on the wireless icon and click on repair.
