    Bought the A100 for niece, college IT department reloaded XP, and now wireless does not work. NIC is fine. I'm looking at device manager, and assuming it's the 1394 Net Adapter? I just don't see the "view available wireless.." like I'm used to. Help! I have <24 hrs...Thanks!

You may have to connect the antennae for the wireless card. On my toshiba it is under the keyboard, it seems someone overlooked this small item during assembly.

On my other lapto it has an access door on the bottom,

With the computer facing towards you - on the right side, first switch there (looks like a slide) is the wireless (on/off) switch.

Next after that is to check if any other wireless computer is reading your wireless signal - for it could be your modem/router.

Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.

Acer aspire 9410, cannot connect to the internet using dial-up


You have two different devices here. A modem and a wireless network adapter. Two totally different devices. It sounds like the modem quit working but the wireless network adapter still functions. I'm assuming that the modem is built it. If you absolutely have to have it you could buy a PCMCIA modem if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot to plug it into. You could also have a corrupted modem driver.

My AMD Athlon(tm) X2 Dual-Core QL-64 by Gateway has wireless network problems. When on wireless, there are lag spikes (meaning it suddenly stops working) every five seconds for around one second each time...


"under the same modem" .. you mean connected to the same router?
if you are using an external USB modem, try a different cable -and keep it short. I can't think right now of any clear causes of this problem other than a bad USB (or too long) cable (which can cause exactly this problem).

possibilities.. could be a cordless phone, cellular, wireless mouse/headphones/controller, bluetooth .. many of these devices connect with their receiver regularly and use almost identical fequencies which interfere.

Doubt it is a network conflict -where someone else has the same IP address. You could try setting a manual IP address too..

good luck!

Heyyy i have take tosiba model L300 wireless len drivers so wht can i do????


You need an Internet Service Provider and a wireless router and a broadband DSL or cable modem. The DSL or cable modem could have a built-in wireless router, this modem could be included in the broadband plan from the Internet Service Provider.
1. You need organise an Internet Service Provider, they should provide configuration settings, password, and e-mail info etc.
2. Install the hardware device and wireless LAN drivers. If you have not got these drivers, download them from the Toshiba WEB site. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista versions of the drivers that match the Windows version on your laptop.
3. Follow the Internet Service Provider to configure your LAN card, and E-mail program.
If you follow the instructions correctly you will be able to connect to the Internet and send and receive E-mails.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.
