Check the ethernet port with other spare wire if you have to check if it is a wire problem or if it is itself your ethernet port.
Try to connect your ethernet port directly to the router to make sure ethernet port is working and there is no connectivity issue with the switch.
Try to check the System BIOS settings and see if it is not disabled from there.
Lastly download any free Live OS of Linux and boot your computer using it. See if the ethernet card is working or not.
Steps from 1-3 is for checking physical connectivity of the ethernet port and the last step is for checking OS issue. If network card do not work with Live OS as well, you can directly come to conclusion that its ethernet card that is not working properly and you need to get is repaired.
Hi, It should have a LAN (network card) built in to the laptop. First of all make sure you have the LAN (network drivers) installed. You can do this by checking in device manager. To open device manager click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. Double-click the System icon. Click the Device Manager tab and look in the list for network adapters/controllers.
If the driver is installed you should be able to directly connect the ethernet cable to your laptop.
I'm not quite sure where the ethernet port is on that particular laptop but it will be on the back or sides of the unit and it will be the only port the ethernet cable fits into.
From there you should be good to go, if you can't get a connection reset the modem by removing power from it for 2 minutes, connect the power again, wait another 2 minutes for the device to settle and try the internet connection again.
lets get the picture right. laptop connects to a wireless router. then u want to plug into laptop ethernet wan port of linksys ? you have to set router manual settings to gateway which is ip of toshiba... this is a fun topic. ive connected xbox360 to laptop this way.. never tried router. "fun times ahead!"
Check the drivers for the ethernet port in the device manager to see if they are there. If so, then uninstall them and reboot. The machine will find the device and reinstall the drivers. This will correct the problem if it's a driver glitch. If the drivers are not there, then you will need to go to Toshiba's support site and download them. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "can't open the ethernet slot to insert card", could you be more specific and I'll see if I can help you through it.
If you already checked the cables then perhaps its the nic card, Check if its properly installed under device manager and make sure there is no question mark or exclamation point. Reinstall the driver if needed.
I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped. To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop.. To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.
