How to remove contant Advisor from my laptop

I bought a Toshiba 490xcdt from ebay. I got wireless internet. I can,t get through to any sites because every time I try a contant Advisor sign keeps coming up it tells me I need a pass word to enter. How can I remove this so I can just seach the web and get my email. It comes on when I try to use the cdrom . I can,t access any thing. I called the guy who I bought from he sayes he don,t know what to tell me. When the content advisor comes up it says enter your dogs name I did that and it
says wrong pass word. I don,t even know what a content advisor is or where it came from.

In your internet explorer click on Tools>Internet Options >Content. Disable the content adviser. if you cant get the password just download say Mozilla Firefox then use that as your browser.

What year was my toshiba satellite 490xcdt made? And is it worth anything other than scrap parts?

That model appears to be from the 1970's. I would not recommend investing any money into it as the price of a new unit is so low in todays market.

I bought it off ebay how can

Your device should have an in-built 56k modem, which you can plug a phone line into to get dial-up internet. However, that's a slow and painful way to use the internet.

More practical, but still difficult, would be to trawl IT retailers or eBay for PCMCIA network cards. You can obtain cards with physical ethernet ports, wireless cards, or various other networking interface. PCMCIA cards are also being phased out, so they could be tricky to find, but that would definitely be the best method.

Toshiba NB 205 connects to router but not internet

The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.

Laptop doesn't recognize a wireless card.

You have to install the correct Vista driver for the 'type' of card you are using. It could be an Intel, Atheros, Realtek etc
Have a look here:

You could download Belarc Advisor, which will tell you a lot about your computer and the hardware that it is using, including your wireless card type. Download and install the appropriate driver from that site and install it and reboot.
Hope this helps:)

By-pass Password in Internet Setting

I would suggest downloading Mozilla Firefox on another computer, putting it on a flash drive or burn a cd, then install on your laptop.

After running mozilla it will ask to make it default browser, click yes, be careful how you respond when it asks you to import from internet explorer. if you import everything it may import security settings.

the only other thing to do is if you give me your e-mail address I can send you a program to remove the password

My Wireless internet card don't work

i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.

Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
