Windows Vista Internet Connection problem

I have a Toshiba Satellite running windows vista home basic, and about ever 20-30 mins my internet connection will drop for no apparent reason. A few seconds later it will come back, but this is very annoying when trying to download something. My wireless router is a linksys wrt54 g, any help would be appreciated.

Are you on the wireless internet or on the internet through a cat5 cable? If on through the wireless I think its a wouter issue. try upgrading the firmware of your router first. If that doesn't work try using a different router. Also try upgrading your drivers on your computer for however you are connecting to the internet. Either your network card or your wireless card via device manager.One of those solutions should solve the problem.

My linksys did the same thing..

seting the Security Mode to [WPA2 personal] in the routers admin page fixed it for me..

You have to log into the router useing the routers ip,, but you have to hook a computer to the router with cable,, cant use wireless to do this.

If you need help seting the Security Mode, hit me back after you get a pc or laptop hooked to the router useing a cable..

Thecrow_3@hotmail.comis there a difference between vista ultimate and vista home edition as I did find the code but it didn't work


Yes. Vista Home Edition has less features than Ultimate. Also, it will not run on a different code- nor will Microsoft provide you with one if you have the other

Toshiba Satellite ?Vista home?Start button not working


> clicking on START has no response.

Have you tried a different mouse, just in case that the LEFT button on the mouse is malfunctioning?

Does pressing the "Windows-flag" key on your keyboard (between CTRL and ALT, on the left) cause the same effect as clicking the START button?

Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Connections
Check that your PPoE entry is present and is set to "automatic".

I purchased a toshiba satellite L305-SP5806R which had a windows vista basic in spanish. I reformatted with windows vista premium and cannot connect to the internet now.


Depending on how you are "connecting' to the internet will determine how to fix the issue.

If you are using a dial up connection you'll need to re-configure the settings.

If you are using a router, it should have DHCP enabled on it. If it doesnt you may need to manually set an IP address to your network card on your pc.... eg 192.168.0.2

Toshiba Sat A135-S2386 System recovery downloads??


As you have stated that the key which  you have is for  
Vista - basic 
and the operating system is most probably vista Ultimate
hence the key is not working

what  You can  do is search the internet for a Vista Ultimate Prodct key  
if you can find it i  guess the activation will go through  easily

if this  does not work  or you want any  other assistance please do post back.
