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.

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.
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.
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:)
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
