Question about Computers & Internet

Check which Wifi spec your wireless card supports. There are currently 4 being sold in the U.S.: 802.11a(54Mb/s), 802.11b(11Mb/s), 802.11g(54Mb/s) and 802.11n(@ 150Mb/s). The 'N" standard has not been ratified yet, and is technically in beta form. Make sure you are operating in G mode, most of toshibas laptops are a/b/g or b/g, but a few are a/b. If you are running in the B mode, you are fine, you will be able to connect but not at the optimal speed that G supports. The A standard normally isn't used in the U.S., that shows up mostly in Europe.
The overview of what I wrote is make sure the standards are the same, it's an apples to apples sort of thing.

To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
