Question about Baby Gear

1 Answer

Futher query about your solution ....

Hi thanks for answering my question about getting wireless happening on my Sharp PCAX40 notebook. I am running Windows XP on the laptop with no probs.

I just installed the modem for my current ADSL onto it, to see if I could get faster internet working on it (I only ever used dial-up on it previously) and it all installed and connected without a problem. Im pretty tech savvy when it comes to adsl connections but have never had wireless or any dealings with it ... I know you have to get a wireless account and a wireless broadband modem... thats as far as my knowledge stretches.. Lol !

what else do I need to do ?

it would be great to take this little notebook O/S with me because it's so small and compact.

You will need a wireless router. People have different preferences towards these units I prefer netgear. They are cheap, reliable nary a problem.

You connect the broad band modem to the uplink or internet slot.
But first, connect your pc or laptop directly into 1 of the 4 ports on the router before connecting the router to the internet.

open your browser, IE/Mozilla, whatever you are using. if the router log in screen does not appear (which it should by default)
type in the ip address of the router where normally you would type in the web address (www.geeks.com) netgear uses 192.168.15.1, username Administrator, password is password.

from here you can plug in the uplink to the modem and let the configuration utility configure your internet settings.

A unit like this is what I have, link, however the router is what you need for your home wireless. I live in a small town in upstate NY and where I am there are 5 homes nearby I can connect to wirelessly. I didn't have to purchase my own router.

I purchased mine for 29.95 USD last year.

Hi, I have brought a Wireless router (D-Link) and I am trying the connect my Toshiba notebook (L305D-S5892). In the available wireless netwroks it shows my network but it is unable to connect.The error...


There are a number of possible solutions for this problem. The best route may be calling customer support for Toshiba and/or the manufacturer of the Wireless router. I'm just brainstroming here, but when I tried to hook up my WII and XBOX wirelessly to the internet, I had to have a "G" connection. Further, you also don't metion the brand or model number of the router. My security setting also had to match there is WEP vs. 128 bit encryption, you have to make sure whatever the defult value is on the computer matches the network.

Usually there is a data plate somewhere on the laptop, probably underneath that will give you the model and serial number. There may be a customer support number nearby that you can call for futher assistence. I'm also assuming that you have "Windows" installed.

On my computer, I have the latest version 7 installed. If you're looking at the Desktop with no other applications running, press F1, then type in network connections, click search. On my computer, the answer came in at number 8, "Why Can't I connect to a network?". There are other possible answers such as "Setting Up a Wireless Network." Most people don't realize that there is built in help with the computer.

Please try the following

1) Hook up a external keyoard to the USB/PS2 prot and see what happens

2) Press all the keys several times when the laptop is switched off to ensure that the keys are not stuck i.e. with debris etc etc

if this fails it would seem you have a bad keyboard, and would be looking at getting replaced
