Can't get wireless connection to work

I recently purchased a Toshiba L505-S6946 with an Intel pro wifi 5100 AGN wireless card. I have a Netgear Router WGT624 that I have used for about 5 years and it works well with another computer with an Intel 1450 wireless card. How can I get the Intel 5100 AGN card to work with my router?

    Yes. The computer sees the wifi with a very strong signal as the computer is only 6 feet from the router. Also, the vista operating system shows a strong signal.

    The wireless card is installed and working. The problem was the router was not seeing the wireless card because I had restricted the router to see specific computers only for security reasons. Anyway, thanks for your comments and help.

Is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless card detect your Netgear Router and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the Netgear Router's SSID and encryption settings before it will communicate with the Netgear Router.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.

Cannot seem to get wireless connection . ethernet connection works fine . do i need usb adapter to bring my 3 year old laptop up to N standard ? Ray


If your laptop does not have a wireless card built into the computer then yes I would go and buy a usb wifi adapter because you cant get wifi if you dont get one.

Toshiba Laptop builtin wireless modem can't find any network


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

If you are using an intel wireless card (such as the default wirelesscard coming with Lenovo laptops) you can download an "Intel WirelessConnection Utility" from the following intel download centre atfollowing location. Select appropriate operating system and downloadtype as "Software Applications" to download the connection utility. Install it.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Wireless+Networking&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+WiFi+Products&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+PRO%2fWireless+3945ABG+Network+Connection&ProdId=2259&LineId=1784&FamilyId=1783

This tool from intel detects the available wifi networks and collectsthe authentication details and automatically connects when the networkdisconnects due to signal dropping.

You can think of changing the desktop/laptop network to "private"instead of "public" to avoid frequent signal dropping. Try to work froma place which is close to the router so tat the wifi signal is strong.
