Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
I just recently got wireless internet. It was working like a charm then all of a suddent the wireless connection stopped working, when I connect the modem to my laptop it works, but would rather have the wireless. Do i need a new wireless card?
Hard to say what the issue is based on the information you provided.. There are actually a lot of reasons you might have lost the connection.
I'd start by verifying that you're connected to the wireless network that you set up. Did you name it? Open your network properties and see what the icon for the wireless adapter tells you:
- Are you connected? - Are you connected to the proper network? - Is your network card "disabled" for some reason? Some laptops have a disable button that overrides the card so the wireless radio can be shut off quickly and easily. Make sure it's not been tripped. Usually laptops have an LED to indicate if the wireless radio is running.. usually blue.
note1: be sure to check the "order of preferred networks" and from that screen delete all wireless networks you won't connect to somewhat regularly and/or ones you've connected to accidentally in the past. Make sure that your home network is tops in the list.
note2: if you did not create your own name for your wireless network and are still running the default name, it's definitely smart to change that. Your laptop can easily get confused with other networks in the neighborhood that have the same name.
Hope that helps.
