    Ok. How do I do that though?

    Ok, I have looked in the router settings by logging into it and everything. It seems to me it is all set up and ready to go. We've had the router for a while actually, and multiple computers have connected, even the laptop, before I reinstalled windows. what now?

Hi, you have to physicaly connect the pc to the router first then setup the router to see your pc and write any mac address.

If you need more help, please ask.

If you purchase a new OS disc of your choice, assuming it will work on your laptop, just palace the disc in the drive, boot from the disc and follow the on screen prompts.
Hope that helps.

Did you install a retail version of Windows? You should have used the restore disc that came with the laptop when you purchased it. That will solve driver related problems if your wireless card is okay.
Check Device Manager if wireless card is still there.
If you install a retail version of Windows, check the support website. Check the wireless card's manufacturer and contact that manufacturer so they can give you the driver for the wireless card.
If you install a retail version of Windows, installing the driver from the support website might not work.
If you used the recovery disc that came with the computer, it should work.

How to entrer in setup of toshiba 5105 satellite?


There is no BIOS setup on that (or most for matter) Toshiba laptop. If you need to tell it what drive to boot from hit the F12 key when you see the Toshiba Logo then use the left and right arrow keys to pick what device you want.

Toshiba Satellite 5105-s501 Restarts Windows then shuts down intermittently


Yes it could be, the notorius GeForce2Go is a replaceable card on that model. I have seen, lines, blurry text, and Boot loop issue caused by it. Be warned, the replacement card is expensive.

Cheaper & better finding a complete laptop with busted screen.
and removing the card only. Then you will also have other spare parts.
