Satellite p35 will not go to wireless


Might not have a wireless card installed ??

If your Toshiba Satellite notebook computer is equipped with a wireless Internet card, you can connect to a Wi-Fi access point by turning on the wireless switch on the side of the laptop.
However, the signal may not always be picked up by your wireless receiver; if that is the case, you will need to check your wireless-network settings and reconfigure the network connections manually.

Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings."
This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet.
Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks."
Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network.

Select "Manage Network Connections."
This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection.

Engage the wireless connection.
Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection.
Select "Connect/Disconnect."

Wait for the IP address acquisition.
It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address.
When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength.
Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.

How do i stop vista from saving public wireless connections? i can't get dialog box to change settings. vista sp2 on toshiba laptop.


Open the Network and Sharing Center by clicking on the connection icon in the system tray by the clock. At the bottom of the window it will say Network and Sharing Center. In the Network and Sharing Center, on the left side of the window you will see a selection for 'Manage Wireless Connections' Click on that. A window will open with all the wireless connections that have been made with your laptop. Select the one you want and at the top it will give you the option to delete it. Vista automatically saves all public connections for use at a later date. When a new wireless connection is made Vista will ask you if it is a public or private connection and will give you the option of saving the connection. I hope this helps.

Hallo , I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D-10Q and a Netgear wireless router from Virgin 54 Mbps do i need a card to go into the laptop to get on to the inter net thank you.


Compliancy : Wi-Fi®
Network Support : 802.11b/g
Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN

That is the internal wireless so no you dont you need any thing to set up a wireless connection
You need to set up your wireless network

Or you should have got an ethernet cable with the router usually small yellow, blue or blue. plug this cable into one of the ports on the back of your router then the other end of cable to the ethernet port on side (i think) of laptop anc conect phone line from main box to router. You dont need no software just switch on router wait a couple of minutes till all lights on router turn green and click on your internet explorer done!

First enable the Wireless service of your Internet Service Router/modem what ever it is.

Then enable the Wireless plug and play service in your Laptop, it will automatically load the required file, if not then use the Windows Installation CD/Mobo CD of the Laptop.

Let me know if you need further assistance and also specify in detail so we can investigate and fix the problem.

Have a Nice Day & Best of Luck

I don't know how to enable the wireless on a Toshiba Satellite L25-S1196


If you're running XP
Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet Connections, Network Connections, Right Click on your Wireless and Select 'Enable".
If it's a physical switch on the laptop then you need to turn it on. Check the sides of the laptop.

We are tring to connect to a wireless internet connection and we cant. it says we need to turn on the wireless networking radio? how do we do that? we have a toshiba satellite laptop. thanks


There should be a wireless button or switch on the perimeter of the laptop. Either this or a function key on your keyboard that you need to depress while clicking another key that has a wireless picture icon on it.

If you hit the right switch you should get some kind of notification either on the display or with the enabling of a new wireless light on the laptop.

My Toshiba SP6000 cannot enable the wireless network connection when the wireless pc-card is inserted. I intend to network my laptop to my computer for broaband purposes. Please help


Hi Alirahmani26,

From what I've gathered here, you're trying to use a wireless card on your laptop to connect to the Internet through your desktop computer. Are you using a wireless router somewhere in there? Or are you wanting to connect to the Internet FROM your laptop THROUGH your desktop computer? If the latter, are you planning to connect the laptop with a Cat-5 cable or with the wireless connection?
