Toshiba Laptop builtin wireless modem can't find any network

Hi. I have a Toshiba Laptop (~3 years old) that I'm using with a wireless netgear DG834G router. Recently the built in wireless modem can't find any wireless network whenever I try to refresh the network list. The wireless modem switch is on on the laptop and when I try the repair option it still does'nt work.

I know the netgear router is working fine as another laptop can find it. Has anyone any thoughts on anything else I can try with the Toshiba laptop?

I'm new to posting on this site so feel free to let me know if I've left out any vital info.

If the laptop is 3 years old then it probably requires a chipset update. Goto intel's website and use the driver update utility. If this does not work then your wireless connection may be broken. You can buy a wifi USB card for less than £10 if you shop around. Good luck

I cannot get wirelessconect to my laptop from my netgear modem router DG834G.I can see the signal but unable to connect


check whether the dhcp option is turned on in ur wireless router. if its turned off, change it to on state and try. u will be able to connect. still if u din get access. use some other lap to connect to ur wireless network. if it is possible to connect with someother lap, then the problem is with ur lap. the wifi drivers might get corrupted. re-install it to fix the problems. if all above doesn't gets work, then the problem is with ur wireless router.

Hi, I have a netgear DG834G version 3 wireless router. I want to buy a wireless printer, will this router support one? If so, have you any opinions on the best buy? Thanks


any wireless printer should and will work with this modem-router as long as it's wireless settings are configured right, if you already have a computer connecting to this router wirelessly then that means the wireless functionality of your router is working. you just have to know the wireless settings of your router such as the SSID or the wireless network name, the type of wireless security and the wireless security key or encryption key.. once you have a wireless computer and it wireless feature is enabled it will automatically detect all networks name or SSIDs around the area, that includes your modem-router's and neighbors'.. when you try to connect to the SSID of your modem-router you will be asked for an encryption key or a password to be able to connect.. that will only happen if you have enabled a wireless security on your modem-router.

If you are using Vista, you will probley want this link, too. Click on Network icon.

In the past I have found the biggest issue with networking is firewalls, so I suggest you disable them just for testing and setting up your network.

Good Luck
