Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless adaptor I have been happily using wireless connection on my laptop. Yesterday before going home I noticed the wireless had disconnected. Today I can't turn on the wireless adaptor. Also I cannot see any wireless networks (including others in the building) so don't think my router is the problem. Have selected diagnose network which just says wirelss turned off but it will not turn on. I also do not get a response at all (ie no icon displayed ) when I try to turn on network by using the keyboard. There was an automatic update yesterday morning. wirless did work for several hours after upadte installed. However, have tried system restore back to last week but still no joy. I am running on vista basic. Any help would be appreciated

First try resetting your router.. unplug it for 5 minutes to "power down"... restart it and reboot the laptop... if this don't help.. Uninstall your network card from the device manager.. then reboot and reinstall network driver... if this still does not help.. open your Command prompt (from your Run Menu).. type : ipconfig / release then type ipconfig /renew. this will reset your DHCP server address .. Hope this helps

Wireless connection will not turn on has x ove signal strength tried using window flag plus x shows icons all work except wireless con wont turn on


Hello

I am going to assume that you never had wireless connection with your 3680. With that in mind, Go into Control Panel to make sure your wireless connection can "see" other network routers. Control Panel>Network and Internet Connections>Network Connection. When you start the search for networks, this should turn your wireless adaptor on to perform the search. If you get a message that you do not have a wireless adaptor, use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

Good Luck

Laptop keeps disconecting from belkin54g dsl network (home)


Wireless connections are best when distances are short and there are no brick or thick walls interfering with the signal between the router and your laptop. Try the following test:
Start using the laptop from an open location that is close to the router. Monitor the signal strength as you walk away from the router. Go into other rooms, go upstairs, downstairs, etc, and you will most likely notice differences in signal strength depending on where you are, or how far you move. Of course, you will suffer frequent disconnections when the signal is at its weakest point, no matter what equipment you use, be it new or used.
Try locating the router in a way that your signal strength is strongest, without affecting the other computers. It's a trial and error thing.
One last thing you could do is to go to your wireless adaptor configuration settings and set the Roaming capability to agressive, and set the connectivity to distance, for higher performance.
Good luck!

Get ''pending'' for ever when trying to connect to wireless AP. Log says can't set wireless frequency - operation not supported and then DHCPDISCOVER never gets an answer. If I use static IP simply get...


I had a similar problem. Hit "Fn"+"F2" to cycle the wireless off then on again. Allow about 30-60 seconds to get IP and DNS info from the access point.
Then, using the network adaptor icon in the utility bar (on the bottom right), right click, select "all network connections". Click each network adaptor and from the "Connection Tab" Disconnect each adaptor. Then restart the wireless adaptor with the "Connect" from the "Connection Tab".
I'm assuming that there are no funny settings in the Properties which are preconfiguring the adaptor for a previous connection. If so remove any present values. Leave the connection set as DHCP as this is teh most common way that adaptors will get their settings from teh access point your attempting to connect to. Cheers.

ASUS EEE PC w/ Windows XP will not Connect Wirelessly


You need to know if your home network requires a password or paraphrase to allow you to connect. Also, you might have to check your settings on your router, they have to match the settings of your laptop wireless adaptor. You can try these solutions and if no luck post with more information

Unfortunatley laptops have everything "built in onboard" which is to say to fix it you need to replace it. Take it back and try another one. The other option is to disable the wireless adaptor and get a usb wireless adapter to take it's place.
