If your laptop has an ethernet jack, then you have an internal card. Go to network connections and enable the LAN or ethernet connection. Make sure the network is really open.

Hi,
It should have a LAN (network card) built in to the laptop.
First of all make sure you have the LAN (network drivers) installed. You can do this by checking in device manager.
To open device manager click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click the System icon. Click the Device Manager tab and look in the list for network adapters/controllers.

If the driver is installed you should be able to directly connect the ethernet cable to your laptop.

I'm not quite sure where the ethernet port is on that particular laptop but it will be on the back or sides of the unit and it will be the only port the ethernet cable fits into.

From there you should be good to go, if you can't get a connection reset the modem by removing power from it for 2 minutes, connect the power again, wait another 2 minutes for the device to settle and try the internet connection again.


Regards.

Is there a way to get my Toshiba Satellite pro 440CDX to conncect to a ethernet cord and not dial up


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION (non dial-up connection)

First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

It connects to local networks but not the internet


You don't say whether you are trying to connect via an ethernet cable, or via a wireless connection.
Try the following in order: Some of these may seem obvious, but it helps eliminate the more simple problems first: (general guidance, as I'm not sure which windows version you are working with. Did you upgrade from Vista to Win 7?)

Assume you have enabled the network on the laptop FN + number key or physical switch?

  • Check if you have the Ethernet and wireless drivers for this laptop first from the Toshiba support site and install them
  • In Control panel / device manager, see that the network devices for wireless and Ethernet Lan are appearing and have no warning mark next to them. If they have, you need to check what the problem is by clicking on the device shown and following the instructions given (repost your findings if you need more help)
  • See if you can connect to the internet using the ethernet lan connection cable (direct wired connection). If it does this ok, the problem lies with the wireless connection.
  • Assuming the wireless card in the laptop is present and is functioning, the next step is to check the router settings. Using the supplied CD that came with the router, or clicking on the router symbol in control panel / network and open the wireless security settings page, reset the wireless password and make a note of it. Save settings. When setting security, choose 128 bit security for more safety.
  • See if the laptop now picks up the network and when prompted enter the password you just created. If this works you are finished.
  • If it still does not work, try disabling Windows Firewall ( a common problem) and see if that then allows for connection.
  • If it STILL fails to work, try the laptop on a friends network. If it connects then, the problem is with your router. If it does not work, you have a failing wireless card in the laptop.
To confirm this, obtain a USB network dongle and test it on your laptop with your own network. You can get a replacement card off the likes off eBay and this is not difficult to fit.

Your laptop is trying to boot via LAN(network). Possible the HDD is not being detected by your system that is why it could not boot to windows. Try to boot up without the ethernet (your internet cable) connected to it and see if it works. If not, you may have a bad HDD.

Hope this helps.

Connecting my Laptop to the internet in France


Alternative to using a dial-up modem via the telecom system is to connect via an internet service provider. If this is your home, then you will need to have either DSL or cable piped in via a provider (either the French telecom company or another "ISP"). This service is usually considered "broadband" and is faster than dial-up modelm. If the place is managed by someone else, ask ahead if they have wireless or ethernet (wired) internet service. Your laptop likely has the connector for wired ethernet service, but check if it has wireless capability. If it doesn't you will need to purchase a wireless NIC. These are available in USB and PC-Card formats depending on what you have. A final resort if the choices above do not work, is to get a PC-Card 3G data network card. These are 3G telecom modems that plug right into your laptop. They will come with a monthly access charge similar to a 3G cellular phone (uses the same network). But, it is very important that you check that there is service in the locale that you are going to use it in. These work well for remote locations, but again, you must check coverage first.

You can get a bus card that has an ethernet port to hook up via ethernet cable, or a universal wireless card for the bus port or usb port. You can find either of these at Walmart or Bestbuy.

I can't get my computer on the internet . I am using windows xp and the modem will not get the internet on the dell computer


Hi, This modem can be used via one of two ports: ethernet port (network port) or USB port If your computer has an ethernet port, it is perferable that you connect through this as you will have better performance. If you don't then you can get an ethernet card installed inside the CPU. If it's not possible to connect via this connection and you have to use the USB, then you will need drivers. This website gives you full instructions on how to use this particular modem and also gives you the USB drivers if needed. http://www.triadtwcable.com/template_media/cablemodems/rca245.htm Good luck!
