Connect the laptop the internet via a cable, and then open device manager (run, devmgmt.msc). open the network adapters subsection, and right click on the one that says *wireless adapter. select update driver on the list that appears there should be at least one, if not two driver updates available

First you need to decide what type of broadband andInternet service you require and these are -

3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.

If the computer is able to see wireless signals but is unable to connect, it is most likely an issue with the card, which unfortunately is internal. It could just be the driver - go to, punch in your service tag and download the wireless driver for your PC and install it. If that does not work, reboot your wireless router. If that still does not work, it's the hardware and cheapest option is to a get USB wifi adapter.

I have toshiba satellite a105 i wanted to know if it have wireless internert or do i need a verizon wireless chip

The Toshiba A105 comes with a wireless card. On the bottom of the laptop there is a door toward the front middle and behind that door you can see a wireless card that has the black and white wires going to it.

There is also a on/off switch that enables the wireless card as well, its either on the left or right hand side of the laptop.

Just make sure the switch is turned on and go into the device manager and underneath where it says network adapters, you should see the wireless card listed in there.

How to conect to wireless network

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

Wireless cards

Wireless cards (provider cards) are portable wireless adapters for wireless network subscription services.

Both Sprint and Verizon offer this service.
I believe AT&T also offers this as well...
