    I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 with Win7 and cannot connect to the internet via high speed modem LAN cable. Internet works on my other computer using the same LAN connection, but it is running XP. I


    So is your Modem from a phone company like AT&T? It sounds like it is because phone companies use what is called PPOE which is where the modem is configured with a userid and password to get out to the internet.

    Cable providers use DHCP and don't require a userid and password.

    If your other computer works using the network cable but your toshiba won't work using the same network cable, I think the phone company has configured your modem to only look at and accept your other computer. You can tell the modem to use specific MAC addresses which are unique to every device that attaches to the internet. You want your modem set up to use a range of addresses, not a specific one.

    How to make the toshiba satellite a15-129 pc notebook wireless?


    The first thing that you need tohave in order to get wireless internet is a wireless networking adapter.If you own a newer laptop, this is probably inside your computer as we speak.
    If you don't own a wireless carddon't panic.
    You can easily purchase oneseparately. They are relatively inexpensive. The best place to purchase a wirelesscard is eBay (opens new window).
    There are two important thing thingsto look for in your wireless card.
    1.Make sure it is a 802.11g card. They have 802.11b, 802.11a, and several others.Having an 802.11g will enable you to connect at much faster speeds and fromfarther away.
    2.Purchase a wireless card that connects in the PCMCIA slot.
    The next thing you are going to wantto get is high speed internet. It is possible to have wireless internet withdial-up, but it will be so slow it simply isn't worth it.
    In order to have high speedinternet, you are going to need a cableor dsl modem depending on what internet you have. This type of modemwill not be found in your laptop.
    There are many different types andbrands of modems out there. I have had no problems or complaints with the Motorola Surfboard. It's easyto set up and has lasted a long time now.
    Other well known modems are Linksys and Netgear.
    You can get cable/dsl modems muchcheaper on eBay. But make sure that all of the equipment comes in the box.Either order one that says new or contact the seller and ask them if all of thewires and cables are included.
    The next thing on how to set upwireless internet is getting a wirelessrouter (opens new window).
    This is the piece of equipment thatmakes things wireless. You can have high speed internet without a router. Butto be able to connect multiple computers and have your laptop have a wirelessconnection you are going to have to purchase a router.

    Fortunately, routers are gettingcheaper and cheaper by the day now.
    You can certainly find a nice wireless router on eBay forunder $30.
    Similar to the wireless card, makesure you get a router that is 802.11g. This will allow you to connect fasterand from farther away.
    Also, try to look for a routerthat has a connection of at least 54 Mbps. Ifseveral people will be using the internet at one time you may consider gettinga router even faster then that.
    Once you have all of the necessaryequipment, it's time to hook everything up.
    It's hard to explain precisely howto do this because each modem and router may need to be hooked up differently.
    But the main steps on how to set upwireless internet are this...
    1.Hook up wherever your internet is coming from to your modem. Your internetsource will vary depending on whether you have Cable or DSL.
    2.Connect your modem to your router. This is the essential part of makingwireless possible.
    3. Turn on whatever computer you havethat has a wireless card and enjoy your wireless internet experience!

    I have hughesnet on my desktop and am trying to link a satellite L355/S7915 to the internet with a D-Link WBR1310 without using a cable is this possible if so how do i do it


    Make sure the ip address is not the same as the Hughesnet ip address. The ip address for the Hughesnet is 192.168.0.1. If the D-link is the same you must go in and change it. You will also need a wireless card to go into your desktop to make it wireless. Hope this helps!

    Almost EXACTLY the same problem!


    Is that program running in the background? On your : run : command type in msconfig. Then select the startup tab. deselect all. Then restart. That should make that error go away until you use that program.

    There is too much information that is need ed here. I would go to your internet provider and have them sort it out for you..
    For example, for Verizon you can go a local cellphone store to get it checked.
