Can't detect network

Hi, I've just bought a Toshiba laptop (Satellite) and am trying to connect to the wireless in my house. Both my housemates are able to connect to the network, my laptop is able to detect and connect to the network at uni, but it's unable to even detect the SpeedStream network in my house. Tried everything from manually entering the network to calling a couple of different IT specialists - no one seems to know what the problem is and noone knows what I should do next!!

Re: Can't detect network

Hi, Thanks for your help, after a week of spending hours on the phone to BigPond, Toshiba and Siemans, and talking with other IT specialists, none of who were able to figure out what the problem was, one helpful person finally directed me to: the modem's online manual! I was soon able to set it up myself, and it is now working. Experiencing emotions somewhere between frustration, relief and disbelief :)

Re: Can't detect network

Hi, Some models of Toshiba Laptops have a slide switch either on the side or front to physically activate the built-in Wifi. Some models also will not work with some models of Access Points if using the built-in Windows Wireless Configuration Utility. A workaround is to install the Wireless Configuration Utility of the WiFi manufacturer. If your Toshiba is using the Atheros WiFi chipset, you may need to install the Atheros 802.11a/b/g Wifi Client utility to use rather than than that pf Windows. The file name is atheros_wpa_client.exe and you can just Google it. Hope this be of some help. Post back how things stand or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

My computer won't connect to the wireless internet that every one in my house uses

When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I bought a new pc, and installed win7 on it. but when i connect it to my linksys sd208, it says unidentified network. what seems to be the problem. thanks

this is a default check that windows does when a new network is detected "wireless or wired"
you must select the type of network this device is connecting too(public/private/home). for the most part you would select home.
do you get on the internet after choosing one? as either way you should be on the internet

hope this helps

hi, please make sure that you enable WPA encryption on the wireless router. Vista will give you trouble if you use WEP encryption. Also, please update the firmware on the wireless router, if possible.

Let me know how it goes.

Router issues in my apartment.

When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

Hi there:)


call in your provider to change the ssid and the network key

[all computers will be disconnected]

and then try to reconnect them one by one to the new ssid or network name

this should resolve the issue

always make sure that the wireless properties are okay and the same as the router

also check the device manager: network adapters if they are properly installed and no errors on the icon for the adapters. for windows OS[]
