I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S7444. Recurring problem with wireless connection. Will be online when pop-up box titled "connect broadband connection" displays. Still connected though. Can hit cancel most...


The little icon on the task bar is not always an accurate and reliable indicator of the status of your connection. If you are having occasional dropouts of signal, try repositioning your laptop either closer to the wireless transmitter or in a more direct, line-of-sight position. Sometimes it becomes necessary to install a wireless "extender" which boosts the signal to enable you to stay connected, especially if there are several other wireless networks within range of your machine.

Assuming that the wireless driver is enabled and working, if not reinstall the wireless card driver. Are all the lights on the router are on, if not power down the wireless router, wait for 30 secs and power up the wireless router. Sometimes when you boot up the wireless card doesn't get an IP address from the wireless router. If you see the wireless icon on the Task Bar with a red X against it, just right click on the icon and click on Repair. This will repair the connection and get the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address. If you don't have an icon on the Task Bar go to Control Panel - Network Connection and right click on the wireless Network connection and click on Repair.
