Wireless connection problem

Am using WinXP Pro SP2 on my Toshiba which I bough second hand a couple of weeks ago. The problem is that it does not navigate interent when using my wireless connection. The connection shows excellent signals and connection. When I directly type in a webpage address in address bar, it connects to that page immediately. However, it does not go any further from that page e.g. no searches or next page etc. However, if I type the next page's address directly it goes there. When I use my ethernet cable with Toshibsa, there is no problem whatsoever in navigation. I tried following solutions

1) Uninstall and install network and wireless cards with latest drivers

2) Format and re-install Win XP

I do not have the recovery CDs so I am desperate to solve

Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. Set static IP address on your WiFi Card including your ISP's DNS;
2. In your browser, go to Tools, Options, Advanced, Setting and check/tick "Auto-detect Proxy settings for this connection"
3.  If you have  the option to Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections, check/tick that also;
4. Right click on your WiFi networking icon and click on repair;
5. Google, download & merge to your registry "winxp_dnscache.zip" which is a patch for Win 2k/XP not to cache failed DNS entries.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Satellite a65 problem with atheros wireless driver after XP Pro SP2 installed


Hi,

Perhaps what is required is to install the drivers separately and use those from the manufacturer, Toshiba. Incidentally, there are 18 versions of a Satellite A65, which one is yours pls? (Versions start from S1062...S1762).

Pls start here and select Portables, Satellite, and A65 + Version, then click on "Show Results" button.

Alternately, you may want to jumpstart and try this for the RTL8139 and/or this for the Atheros WiFi. Both are for Windows XP.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Wireless connection problem


I would check your wireless configuration utility's security settings (Windows, Toshiba's, whichever you are using) and see if you can find something there that would prevent you from hot linking (sounds to me like what the problem is). I personally always use Windows zero configuration wireless utility, mainly because it's already there and I've had problems with third party utilities conflicting with it. I feel pretty certain that it's a security issue with your wireless utility though, so give it a check and let us know.
Good Luck.

you should only need to enter the WEP key and get youre friend to remove your mac address. You may also need to refresh the ip address of your wireless card, so go to control panel>network connections>right click to properties>TCP/IP line>properties and ensure 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, then reastart your pc. Or you can also click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns, so as to renew your dns and ip address.
