Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

I have a few questions for you.

Have you been able to connect? What Windows are you running?

Quick tricks:

There should be a little switch on the front or maybe a button on the top where you can "enable wireless."

The wireless signal on the bottom should be telling you "netwroks available." Double click and connect to a network.

Check the router and make sure the wireless is enable. This can be done by connecting the laptop directly to the router (using an ethernet cable) and typing, in the address bar 192.168.1.1, enter user-name and password. Click on wireless tab and make sure the "enable wireless" is checked.

Reboot the modem, router and laptop: Turn all the devices off and the start the in this order. Modem first, router second and notebook third.

Please let me know the above questions and I can provide a more detailed answer for you.

How to load Integrated Wireless LAN on my toshiba satellite a45-s1202


If your Toshiba Satellite notebook computer is equipped with a wireless Internet card, you can connect to a Wi-Fi access point by turning on the wireless switch on the side of the laptop. However, the signal may not always be picked up by your wireless receiver; if that is the case, you will need to check your wireless-network settings and reconfigure the network connections manually.

Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings." This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet. Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks." Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network. Select "Manage Network Connections." This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection. Engage the wireless connection. Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection. Select "Connect/Disconnect." Wait for the IP address acquisition. It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address. When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength. Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.
