Hi there.
There is a switch on the front which you switch on and it lights up red.
Then search for wireless connection and it should find it no problem.
On certain toshiba's hold down Fn and hit F2 or F8.



Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Unable to connect to N wireless router.


In that particular laptop model you have an Atheros 802.11 b/g wireless adapter, which is not compatible with a N wireless router. Check the manual for your router for more information. You may have to replace the router with one specked for 802.11 b/g which is the primary standard at this time.

Satellite Pro P300 won't connect to wireless network.


The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Toshiba satellite l505-s6906 will only connect to a linksys g router in the same room as soon as i leave the room it disconnects


Check to make sure the lead are firmly connected to the wireless card. If they are make sure that they are reversed. Also if you have a neighbor next door that has a computer with wireless, see if it picks up your router, that way we can determine if it is a network or computer issue.

Cannot get internet from router to


If I understand correctly you want to use the router as a gateway for an sat. receiver.
This Netgear router can be connected to devices that has TCP/IP connections (RJ45) ports or wireless IEEE 803.11 b/g, and that can get the IP address statically or from DHCP (router). Toshiba can do that and therefore it is working fine. If sat.receiver is not device that can behave as a PC (processor etc.) it can not get IP address and router can not "see" that device, therefore router can not let "something invisible" to connect to the internet.

Unable to re-connect laptop to internet via wireless router


Reset all again.
Power off the modem, router, and PCs and wait 20 seconds or so.
Then power up the Modem first, then the router, and finally your PCs, wait a couple of minutes and try to connect.

Sometimes Electrical devices conflict with wireless signals,i.e. Cordless phones,Mobile phones are the worst,also the area you have placed your router can affect the performance of the signal. Also try unplugging the router for 30 seconds then plug it back in. This reboots the router and sets up a new stronger signal.

Wireless routers and laptops


You would not need a specific card for your laptop unless you wanted to upgrade to N technology. You would need a Internet Service Provider (ect. cable, verizon) and a router. I'd have Geek Squad setup your router to ensure it is properly setup and secure.
