Question about Toshiba Tecra 9100 Laptops

1 Answer

Here's an interesting problem for you. I have a Toshiba Tecra 9100 which has worked on my WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK enabled Azurewave B/G/N router. As an experiment, I loaded Windows7 Ultimate which after a few driver problems ran well but as it wasn't activated so I did a clean install of XP Pro and carried out all of the upgrades including SP3. I used all of the original Toshiba drivers that ran on the system before Windows7 was loaded but now if I enable WPA on my router, it will not connect although it will when I use WEP. It will connect with WPA but will not give it an IP so it's limited connectivity. Any ideas?

XP has some issues with WPA encryption and you must have all of the service pack updates installed along with updates on those after. If you Google this problem there are several work arounds to this problem. One of the other problems is it not coming up with the box to enter your password to connect and this is also tied to the service pack updates. Make sure you have them all installed correctly with out errors or failures. Check your history log for the updates to make sure you got them all.

Please check the physical volume knob.
Fn+Esc is for mute. Please press on it again and make sure that it is not mute. If it does not work, please go to the device manager under control panel-hardware and sound-device manager-sound, game and video controllers.

WEP is the first security system that was used for wireless networks. Unfortunately the code was broken by hackers some time ago. If you do a search on the Internet for WEP cracking programs you would find that there are quite a few of them available. Your router and wireless card should have the capability to use the WPA security protocol. This has not been cracked as of yet, so you shouldn't have to worry about someone hacking into your network.

When you setup your wireless network on the netgear it will ask you to create a "key" for your network. This is a password that any wireless system that tries to use your router must send before the router will allow the connection to be made. The more random you make your characters for the password the better your security will be. I would strongly advise that you use both upper and lower case letter, numbers, and even some punctuation symbols. The chances of anyone duplicating a mix like that . You can also program the Netgear router to only allow the MAC addresses you program in to access your network. That way, even if someone was to actually successfully guess your key the router would still not let them in because their MAC address would not be in the list. The MAC address is a 12 character code that every networking item must have for it to be able to be on any network.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

Hi i have installed my router over a year ago now but am wondering how i set up security as others in my area can pick up my network easily without any passwords and it is slowing my computer down thanks.


In general, you can follow the basic steps below.

I would recomend using WPA2 or WPA secutity over WEP. (as this is a stronger type of wireless security)

- Open a web browser on the computer.
- In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 (default router ip address, you may have changed this)
- Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit. (if you have already set up a password to login to the router then enter it here)
- Click on Security in the left-hand column under the Wireless heading.
- Use the drop-down menu and select "WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK)".
- Select either WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, or WPA-PSK+WPA-PSK2 as your Authentication; doing this will set the Encryption Technique automatically.
- Enter a word or group of characters in the password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length. Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case-sensitive ("A" is different than "a").
*NOTE* Unchecking the Obscure PSK box will allow you to see the security key that has been typed.
= Click the "Apply Changes" button to save the settings.

Any/all wireless computers that connect to this network will be required to have this Pre-Shared Key (password).

If you need assistance with how to re-configure your computers, then please provide the version of windows that you are using.

Basic steps are:

-Disable the current Wireless Connection
-Enable the Wireless Connection
-Search for available wireless networks (look for your SSID wireless network name)
-you will be prompted to enter in your PSK and then save your settings

Laptop can't connect to DSL-G604T


You need to configure your router and use WPA encryption so that all accessing device can connect to it.


The obvious reason why the dell laptop can't connect is because of the WPA encryption set. It is different compared with what your router is actually broadcasting: WPA2.

So you can choose one of the 2 things to alter. Change your router's WPA2 encryption to WPA or change your Dell's setup to WPA2.

HELP!!!!!! Trying to enable wpa-psk security on my laptop?


You should set the security on your computer wifi card to wpa-psk and then type in the securitycode which is written in your Zyxel Router.
If this is not possible with your networkcard, change to wpa or wpa2 inside the Zyxel. And do the same procedure with your networkcard, when detected the Router.
