Toshiba- Network Adaptor

A friend of mine brought his Toshiba over to me asking me to fix this problem he's having connecting to the internet. When he bought it they told told him that it came with the "Wi-Fi" connection ready to use. I went a little deeper into the problem and it is saying that it's disabled on one end, and enabled on another end. The Wi-Fi switch is turned on. is there anyway you can help us out on this one.

Just check the connectivity between your laptop and the wireless modem or router, it should be properly connected by putting the right wep/wpa key

Lost wifi connection over night


You need to reinstall the wifi drivers.

Alternatively you can use the Microsoft troubles shooter by going to the control panel, picking network and sharing centre, then adaptor settings and selecting your adaptor. Then right click and from the menu, select diagnose. This will reset the adaptor if it has become locked up.

NETGEAR Wireless G USB Adaptor Problems


I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<" yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)

How to fix Power Adapter


Does your adaptor geting warmer when plugged to power outlet for some time (minutes)?

If not, than there are two possible solutions:
First (the easiest) thing is to check if both wires are not cut or short (one that you connect to power outlet, and the other one you connect to your laptop). You'll need some multimer to do this.
Most possible is that you'll need to open the power adaptor to do these checks.

Second thing is to locate and check the Fuse. Most of the adaptors have a Fuse inside.

If the fuse is OK, the wires are also OK, and the adaptor is getting warmer (or not), than you should buy a new power adaptor.
My experiance sais, not to belive much to repaired laptop adaptors (you don;t say what laptop you have).
Also, do not ask for substitute (cheap) adaptor!
Find an original one!
Most important is the following:

Please note that you should't try to do these checks, if you don't feel you are enough qualified. You should ask some friend of your's or some service. It should't cost you much !

Also, if you try to do this by yourself, be EXTREMELY carefull when adaptor is open. DO NOT PLUG it to power outled !!!
You might be killed !!!

If you have a network code, such as WEP, enter it when prompted.
Now, whenever you turn on your XBox and have the wireless adaptor plugged in, it will automatically connect to your network.

For cable:
Plug in the cable to your console at the back.
Then follow above steps if it doesn't automatically connect you.

To play with mates, you need to purchase an XBox Live Gold Membership.
To do this, you must create an account after connecting to the internet.

Toshiba P35-S611


Either the AC adaptor is broken (easily checked with a volt-meter), or equally/more likely the computer a/c plug (where you stick the charger tip into the computer) has broken a solder connection. This model is prone to solder failure at this joint, especially if you use the plug often. I fixed mine by opening it up and resoldering the plug. Ask a friend if you don't know how, or check around some computer or electronic stores (not the big stores like Best Buy). It is a rather easy fix...very slightly time consuming, but not difficult. Just a lot of screw removals, etc. Hope this helpls.
