Re: unable to connect properly on LAN
Showing connected only means there is an active cable attached to the network port.
You will need to check the laptop to see if it should have it's IP address assigned manually or is being assigned by the router/hub in your network using DHCP.

When you plugged in the ethernet cable, does it show on your windows tray (lower right corner of the screen) that the LAN is connected? It should show you "Connected" if you hover your mouse on the LAN icon.
Try also to plug in the ethernet cable to a different port on the router, and that the port number on the router is showing a solid green led light.
If all has been observed and still you cannot connect, look if the network adapter for your lan is working. RIGHT click your My Computer or "Computer" and select Manage. The Computer Management window will open. Click on the Device Manager on the left to show the list of devices on the right. Look for Network Adapters and click the + sign. See if your LAN adapter is not showing any yellow exclamation point. Also, right click on it and select Properties. You should see the device is working properly under status.
Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.
The switch for most toshiba satellites is on the right side of laptop. it is a small slide switch. on others It is a small circular button on the front of the unit below and to the right of where the pad is.
Check in the Device manager to see if all the devices are enable and working.
The one with a yellow ? against that device requires a driver installation.
Is the LAN device OK?
How do you intend to setup your LAN, is it for Internet access or a home network?
I need more information on your problem, together with error messages.
it sounds like somehow the WPA was turned off . Can you reenter your internal router and re-initailize the WPA setting for your laptop, if there a setting for WPA And WEP together ,check that box. Hopefully that does the job.. good luck
