You need to set up your computer's wireless connection. Your computer right now sounds like it defaults to connect to either the "toby" or the "access point" networks. There should be an icon on the task bar, at the bottom right of your screen if you are running windows, that displays information on your wireless network connection when you place the cursor over it. The icon looks like a little desktop with some waves coming out of it.
Open up the control panel for your wireless network and disable the auto-connect feature for the "access point" network. This can vary depending on what type of wireless card you have installed.
You will now only find yourself connected to the fast "toby" network.

you need to configure your linksys router. to do this
connect to the router with a cat5 cable in any of the lan ports.
open internet explorer and go to the http://192.168.1.1

if you had changed this before please use that login/pass. or reset the router if you can't login by holding the reset button for 30 secs.
once you login go to the wireless button.
there you can set the SSID of your wireless network. this will be the name of your wireless network.
then go to wireless security to set the security to WPA.
choose a good passphase that you can remember.
apply the settings you had made.
on your laptop unplug from the router and search for a wireless network. you should see the ssid name that you made.
connect to it and it will prompt you to input a wireless password.
put the passphase that you setup for your wifi.
you should now be able to surf the internet wirelessly.

Netgear wireless router wgr614?


If you cannot login to the router's configuration URL, then you can reset the Netgear back to the factory defaults by powering up the router and press the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router until the LEDs turn on, then release the RESET button and wait for the router to reboot.
Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the router open an Internet Browser and enter the router's configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default password = password.
You can now configure the wireless settings, Eg. SSID, encryption etc.
To secure your wireless from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I can contect with the Wireless router .. But I


First to check whether Internet is working Connect your computer and Router with Ethernet wire instead of connecting wirelessly. If Internet works on wired mode that means security key for wireless is wrong. Change the SSID (name of your network) from Router login page and then connect again while ensuring you are entering the correct key. As sometimes even if you enter wrong security key Computer will show connected to Router but you will not be able to access anything.

Enabled MAC address filtering and no cannot access the internet


You have to connect to your router using an Ethernet cable. MAC address filtering is for wireless connections only.
After you connected via a cable, you can log in to your router and correct the settings. Make sure to follow the instructions in the manual from page 2-11 to 2-13.
If you don't have a manual, you can download it here. Choose the correct model, go to the "Documentation" tab and choose "User Manual".

Slow speed tests


Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.

on your computer try to reinstall the device driver for wireless. try to connect the ethernet cable directly to the computer. if you have internet access, then most likely your netgear router needs to be reconfigured. you need to contact your internet service provider or router manufacturer for the reconfiguration of your router. mostly likely the security settings of the router needs to be changed.
