Re: have a new imac with leopard and it has a built in...
To join an AirPort network: 1. Choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Network. 2. ClickAirPort in the network connection services list and choose a wireless network from the Network Name pop-up menu. Enter the password for the network if necessary. If the network you expected is not in the list, it may be a “closed” network and not be available in the list. Try clicking Other, and then enter the network name and password if necessary. If AirPort isn’t in the list, click Add (+) at the bottom of the list, choose AirPort from the Interface pop-up menu, give the AirPort service a name, and then click Create.

Does your Toshiba have a wireless adapter? If so, you can set up a home network, if you don't already have one. If no,Does the iMac have a VGA or HDMI connector? You can connect via a adapter cable, Vga to HDMI or a HDMI cable, depending on the iMac connections.
try to re-install the drivers if it still don't work there might be a conflict with your operating system if your using pc try to click this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950720 if mac copy and paste this http://www.apple.com/support/contact/ and describe your problem to them
I have seen this before and this has cured it:
Check the DNS settings in the Network panel and enter a manual DNS that matches the base address of the router (192.168.0.1 for this router).
System Preferences > Network > Ethernet > Advanced > DNS. Click the + sign and add 192.168.0.1. Click OK, and click Apply on the next screen.
No need to install the dlink on the imac. All you need to do is connect the modem first the dlink. (Modem connected to Internet or WAN port of the dlink). Now if they are connected, your imac should be plugged in to port 1 of dlink, and your PC to port 2. That should do it.
Make sure your ADSL router has wireless capability or wireless function. Verify that from your Internet Provider. If your ADSL router doesn't have wireless function, you need to buy a separate wireless router then cascade it to your ADSL router, from there your airport must be working fine.
Based upon the way you worded the message, you were trying to get the Mac working wirelessly?
The description of how you were trying to set up your network (SysPref\Net\BuiltInEthernet) is for WIRED connections, not wireless.
If you are running OSX and you have a built-in wireless adapter, use System Preferences\Network\Airport choice to set up for wireless connections.
If you are trying to use the wire either because you don't have a wireless card or it is not working, check to make sure that the cable is good...maybe hijack the cable that you know works for your PC and test it.
Please let me know if I am on the right track to solve the problem.
