Question about Toshiba Satellite A25-S307 Notebook

Can't connect through a wired connection to

I have a post where I bring this up here
, but I am making a new post since this is somewhat a new problem. The problem is that I have 2 laptops a sony vaio and a dell that won't connect to the internet through a wired connection. However I do have a hp laptop that does connect to that exact same wired connection. I have tried :

1. cmd -> ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew
2. powercycling the modem and turning of the laptops
3. changing the link speed & duplex
4. search countless sites =(

And all seem to not provide the solution to this problem. I then hooked up my wrt 300n wireless n router to the modem and tried a wired connection from the router and the sony vaio and dell works fine. The limited or no connectivity was gone and I could connect to the internet. The dell can access the internet by a wired connection and wireless. But the sony vaio can't connect to the router wireless. It seems to have the same problem as trying to connect to the modem wired. But the sony can connect to the router wired which is connected to the modem wired?? I am no computer guy and just know the basics so can anyone tell me why is this? And if there is a solution to the limited or connectivity when I try to connect to it wired to the modem(the sony vaio gets stuck on aquiring network address =(....)? Please I need help lol

Infinity TSS-450 subwoofer making a clicking noise

Just apply the excellent solution of "dskum" that I am reproducing here:


I had the same sub and I started hunting down the problem by disabling \'sectional\' parts of the circuit to find out whats causing the problem. The problem was narrowed down to the small \'limiter\' circuit which is soldered vertically on the Pre-Amp. (The wire from power amp connects to it)

As far me, the limiter circuit doesn\'t add much value, if you are careful enough not to push the subwoofer to its peak limits. There is a 7 wire bus which connects the Pre-Amp (top board) to the power amplifier (bottom board). In that 6 wires are just direct connection from pre-to- power amp board. The pre-amp output goes through the limiter. (1st black wire).

To remove the limiter from circuit just physically remove the limiter board by de-soldering the 7 pins through which its connected to pre-amp. Also you may\'ve to clean up the glue around to easily remove it. Disconnect the 7 wire connector from the limiter and solder it directly to the pre-amp board. (Only 6 black wires need to be connected.) Check the picture. Also as part of experiment I replaced the power filter capacitors with slightly bigger capacity. (But its not necessary - the glue on the old capacitors made it look like it was bulged - but its not).

The white wire (limiter feedback) is not necessary and that can be disconnected or cut off for good. All the popup/crackling/thumping it was making is gone and the sub is working great again. (Yes it was doing so even without any inputs).

While de-soldering make sure don\'t apply too much heat. The boards are pretty weak and you might easily damage the solder pads.


Whil Also don\'t use any kind of diode or mess with it the limiter circuit. Just removing the limiter circuit makes it good. If you use diode to directly connect the pre-amp line to power line as suggested earlier you might be damaging it more than its currently since you are almost connecting to the 42 v rails to it. Also if you google you would come across the service manual if you are interested in the circuit diagram.

Please excuse my very limited knowledge of wireless connectivity! I currently have Juno DSL, with a 2wire modem (2071 - no wifi) and I want to add wifi capabilities to my house. I assume that I need a...

As I understand it, you currently have a DSL line with a computer plugged into a modem that is attached to the DSL. Now, you want to use wireless throughout your home.

My choice of router manufacturer is Linksys though there are other manufacturers of wireless technology.

What ever manufacturer you choose, get the device. Hook it up according to the instructions you will find inside the device box.

It will go something like this: Attach a cat 5 cable from the "uplink" port on your router to the DSL modem. Plug your wired computer into any of the 4 other ports. Everything is off, right? Cycle the modem - wait for the lights to settle down. Plug in your new wireless, wait for the lights to settle. Turn on your computer. Turn on your wireless. Wou may have to connect using the windows wizard.

A tool I use for network management is Network Magic, a Cisco product. Cisco also owns LlinkSys.

Get the program, free download and eval period. After the eval period you may purchase or continue to use the product with some features disabled.

Go into your wireless router/transmitter and change the channel. eg. mine was on Channel 10, and the following all connected Acer Laptop, Xbox360, Wii, Blackberry but not the Vaio. I changed to Channel 4 an the Vaio sprung into action and everything else updated itself automatically.

The first answer seems to address your question however as noted in your article the mode you have is not on AOL's recommended however it does support PPPoE so it may (should?) work. I recommend setting it up and getting it to work with a computer wired to the router before configuring and testing wireless connections. In terms of wireless configuration see
