Toshiba laptop wont find router


i have a toshiba a200, with intel 3945abg wireless adaptor.

we recently installed a wireless router.. but my laptop doesnt even 'see' it. both of my flatmates can find the house network, (one using vista, one using XP), and i can find other networks in the area.. but not our one!

i ahve tried playing with the power settings.. and boosted everything up to maximum performance.. but even when sitting right next to the ruter.. i cant find anything!

Right click on the network icon in your task bar or in network connections in control panel and click view wireless networks, then when all the networks show, delete them all and close the window, next, a pop up will say found wireless connections click the pop up icon again and look for your connection in the list and click connect and enter the pass phrase Iif you have security enabled.

Intel 3945ABG - no connection

usually, on board wireless cards need to be enabled, or physically switched on via a toggle switch, or by pressing a button or a keyboard key (something like Fn + F2). Once it's enabled, a wireless light should turn on. If it appears to be enabled, you can further isolate the problem by checking if other wireless computers can see your router. If not, then the router probably needs to be configured properly.

Vista Wireless Problem: Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG

Hi Pete,

You sound like you know what you're doing, so forgive me if these suggestions seem foolish or patronising..
Does your laptop have a wireless button?

When you go to Internet Options and click the Connections tab, have you checked 'Never Dial a Connection'? This is essential..
I have exactly the same ethernet card and network adaptor, but haven't had any problems, and we have 2 laptops and 2 pc's here all detecting our router okay so..
It's definitely not MAC filtering on the router, as you would still see the network in your list..
I can only suggest uninstalling the Intel Pro Wireless driver and downloading a fresh one from here.
That'll reset default settings at least..
Hope this helps
Let me know how you get on.. If I face this problem I want to know how to fix it too!

I am unable to connect my A200 Satellite Pro to my wireless internet router and have been advised I need a code to unlock the wireless adaptor inside the machine

its unlikely that you need a code to unlock the wireless adaptor...

you are more than likely to need the 'WEP / WPA' code.

1 - Has your router got an encryption key setup ? if so, then this is what you need.
2 - Is your LAPTOP setup with the same workgroup name as your router ?
