I have trouble connecting using wireless at many motels I stay at. It will connect but will not let me open an internet page. Then later it will. My travel mates many times can connect yet I can't even while in the same room. Once connected it works fine. Is this a common problem with Toshiba and what can be done to fix it.

You can try using compressed air can to clean the keyboard, maybe that will fix it. But if it's caused by wear and tear or you have spilled some liquid on the keyboard, you need to buy a replacement. A keyboard for your laptop is around 17$ with free shipping:
Download a Ubuntu Live CD and try to connect to the internet. If that works, then you have a driver problem. Try updating your wireless driver for toshiba by searching toshiba drivers. find your model and download the correct driver and reinstall it.
If Ubuntu doesn't even get internet, then you have an hardware problem. Wireless cards don't usually die, so it's probably overheating. so prop open your keyboard and clean the wireless card instructions here: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-1.htm
You can only only find the drivers in Toshiba europe and you will have to to begin with the first series of you particular; your's being A-series, search for the last model number to support xp and VIOLA your home free =) I know this cuz I just downgraded a Toshiba Satellite A135- S2286 Happy Driver hunting and Good Luck XP RULES =)
Well of course I do have to tell ya that downgrading from the original operating system which is Vista OS on your computer will cause alot of issues, Usually you will need to go to each and every manufactors website for each product and locate the driver yourself because every Computer Manufactor company will tell you that you should keep the windows operating system that came with the computer or they will not provide you any drivers, and they mean it, I tried downgrading from Vista OS to XP and had no drivers ... I would try going to the Wi-Fi adapter/card manufactors website and try to locate a driver. That is your bests bet Toshiba is not going to help any...especially if warrant is out of date...Let me know how it goes!
