Re: internet

If your laptop is configured with a DHCP address then it may be onflicting with another computer on your network. If the IP address is manually configured then this might be conflicting with another computer on the network. If nothing works try removing the card and reinstalling it. you check with another network card as the problem may be hardware related.

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup 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 :-

Resetting the adapter

Use the computer you are on to download the updated driver for the network adapter from the Toshiba Website. After you have the updated driver install it on the computer your having a problem on. Reboot the computer. If the problem is still there and you have a cable connected to the network connection and to the router, uninstall the network adapter from the device manager and reboot the computer. That should detect and install the adapter and resolve the problem. If it doesn't there is a problem with the network adapter and you will need to use the wireless of get a PCMCIA card to use for networking. Toshiba does use a replaceable Network card in some laptops, if nothing else above works and you don't want to get another card to plug in you may want to look into purchasing a new card from Toshiba to replace the old one.

Reinsalled windows xp on toshiba notebook -- now wireless won't work.

Hi Matt,

When you try to connect wirelessly to your network did get any pop up message like asking you for a network key WPA/WEP? if your wireless network is security enabled then you need to enter the security settings again on the computer since you re-installed XP the security settings that was saved previously was also wiped out.
May I know the exact model number of wireless router/access point that your trying to connect your laptop so that I can provide you with instructions on how to retrieve the security key.

hi i would suggest to access your routers setuppage and set the channel to channel 11.

make sure also if your wireless network is secured, type the correct key those things are case sensitive.

to access the routers setuppage go to a computers that is connected to your linksys router (wired) then launch IE on the address bar type is the routers ip) then it will ask you for username and password for the username dont type any thing for the password type admin.

when your on the setuppage click on wireless tab. while on the wireless page set the channel to 11.

after that click apply or save settings on the page.

then after that try to connect to your wireless network on your laptop.

for further help you can call linksys hot line 1800-3267114

Wireless internet connection

be sure to turn on the wireless switch on your laptop. press Fn and F8 to turn on wifi. try to reconnect to the network. if it doesn't work, uninstall/reinstall the device driver for your toshiba laptop. if you know how to reconfigure the router, you need to change the SSID and change the passphrase. (if this is a secured network) if you don't know how to reconfigure the router, please contact your router manufacturer.

i hope this helps.
