unless you have a wireless router in your home; the msg "windows cannot find any wireless networks"
means any network in your area is too far away, or has a signal so weak your laptop is not picking it up as a viable source.
visit . www.filehippo.com and DL a file called Ccleaner. Run this program - it will clean all your internet caches and junk files, then run the registry cleaner. Reboot. This can keep you from connecting.
Also try moving to different areas in your home and refreshing your wireless search.
if you are worried your wireless card may not be working properly, take it to a place like mcdonalds, or anywhere that has free wi-fi offered. if you still can not pick up a signal there you have narrowed it down to your wireless adapter.
you can also try this little program. Easy Wi-fi radar found here
The RJ11 jack is for connecting to a phone line, your laptop has a built-in phone modem.
You need a network card with a RJ45 jack, there are numerious PCMCIA network card available, there are also USB network devices that you can use. I suggest you use a PCMCIA network card, and leaves the USB port free for other uses.
you might wan to contact toshiba and ask them about upgrade possiblities. I have the same computer and have found that its best to contact them or a proffesional when dealing with upgrades. I would tell you for sure if I had gone through with my upgrades, but that would kill my warranty. Dont forget to rate thanks!
I could be wrong, but most laptops have all the peripherals intergraded into the motherboard in order to get such a slim profile all on one board. The sound card, video card, network card, and all are non removable and non replaceable. When it comes time to upgrade, then you'll have to start looking for another laptop. Sometimes though, Toshiba will have driver upgrades on their website for new features and fixes.
