Turn on ur wireless(activate)and wait to detect networks.more than one may appear,none may appear ;but when u have a network available you need to choose an unsecured network unless you have whoevers network key to enter.
wireless networks can be picked up from upto 200 meters;so if anyone local is using an unsecured network ur in luck.
the hotel may even have one.
to use ur wireless u need drivers installed you can check this in device manager under network adapters

To use wireless conection you need a Wireless Access Point i.e. wirless router. Then you can connect your laptop to this router and use internet. But if you have modem in your lap (generally all laps are coming with modem now) you should direct attach the phone line to your lap. In this case you need a dial-up no which you can ask your ISP.

If any problem just Ask me

Thanks

Is there a way to get my Toshiba Satellite pro 440CDX to conncect to a ethernet cord and not dial up


SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION (non dial-up connection)

First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Dial up connection needs a modem for the authentication with a telephone number - without modem no one can work with internet .yes if you want to use your laptop wireless you can do it but to do that you should have a DSL service with a wireless router .
this is how the connections in DSL is been done
DSL(telephone line) ->modem->wireless router->computer

How do i connect to a wireless internet router


You need a cat 5 ethernet cable that goes from the uplink port to the router. The rest is wireless. Most routers offer cat 5 ports where you can plug a computer in. Dont use a telephone wire ... telephone wire is RJ 11 - you need a RJ-45 caat 5 cable. They look similar.

BTW, most wireless runs at about 10 - while wire runs at 100 or 1000.

You will need to run the wizard on your computer to detect ... and/or load the software that came with the router.

I'm using a Toshiba C 1.8 14X256M 20 CD Satellite A10 system unit model no psa10L... I do not know if I can connect to wireless lan in hotels. How do I know if my laptop has wireless modem? And if it...


I just googled "toshiba a10" and looked at the specs. It has wireless support but no wireless built in. just buy a 802.11 wireless dongle and plug it into the usb ports and away you go.

Wireless MODEM for Internet connection compatibility with Laptop


Compaq/HP laptops that have a builtin wireless adapter have a wireless transmitter symbol near the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
If you don't have a wireless adapter you need either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter. My choice would be a PCMCIA type because it frees up a USB port for other devices.

Laptop connect to public wireless network, but not internet


Sometimes they set the wireless to be unsecured. But you have to pay to use them.
Please check with the hotel staff about setting it to use.
If its completely free, double click the network icon on the task bar, click support tab and click repair.
