Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.
Can you plug pick up internet with a different laptop in the same place? If another laptop can plug in with the same ethernet cable and get a signal then you know its "your" laptop and not the cable or the connection, If it is your laptop that is the problem, check to see if your network card is working properly by going into device manager. My guess is you need a new network card.
Yes you can connect your laptop to this modem through a wire and still keep the wireless.I am not sure what you are looking to do.All you have to do is connect to the modem wireless after you unplug the Ethernet cable.
Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.
go to device manager, see if there is a driver for the wireless adaptor...try disabling and enabling it...see if that works. if that doesnt, see if u got the wireless connection still wrking....bt sometimes kills the wireless connection, changing the channel helps in this case....
tell me wats goin on
