Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook

1 Answer

Internet connection My computer constantly disconnects from the internet. I know that this is not a problem with my internet, because my roommate has never had a problem with staying connected. Also I have taken my computer to work and other locations where wireless is available and my computer continues to disconnect from those as well. I've tried restarting my computer, restarting the modem, and restarting the router. Nothing seems to work. This problem has been going on for months and it's driving me crazy. I figure I must have a bad wireless card or something. Obviously I need to take it in to have some service done to it. When I purchased the computer, I also purchased the 3 year warranty. Would you be able to tell me what I need to bring with me when I take my computer in? Also, will there be a charge to fix my computer? Thank you, Amber Lynch

Amber,

My guess is, as you also have guessed, the internal wireless card. Since it is under warranty, there should not be charge for it but I don't know the details of your extended warranty.

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

I have HP Pavilion Entertainment PC and I'm currently connected to the internet via a wirelss router. My roommates are also connected to the same router and they have not had any issues with...


Try positioning your computer next to the router - or within line of sight of the router - see if the limited connectivity thing comes up. It probably won't. Then try placing your laptop at the same spot where your roommate(s) normally uses his or hers or their computers and see if that makes any difference.

Wireless signals can go thru walls, or bounce off of anything that it can't go thru - so we're all trying to catch a good bounce and hence, location matters a lot. Sometimes moving a wireless router can make a huge difference - like moving it from behind the TV to above the TV for better broadcasting (cause the signal ain't gonna go thru a TV's power supply). Anyway, that'd be how I'd go about troubleshooting this issue....

No connectivty to internet


Your problem is very indicative of an assigned ip address to your wireless card. Assuming you have windows xp as your operating system. Go to start, run, type in CMD, once the dos screen appears type ipconfig and look to see what your assigned ip address is.

LAN connection problems


It usually helps with these questions if you mention what vsn. of windows .. and did it EVER work ??

I will assume XP ... go to 'start', 'settings' 'network connections'.

If you have no entry under Local Area Connection, then run the New Connection Wizard.

If you have a Local Area Connection, double click to open it, in General tab, select Properties and make sure 'Client for Microsoft Networks' and 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' are present and selected (ticked).

Double click 'Internet protocol' to open it and make sure in General tab that 'Obtain an IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server address automatically' are ticked.

Launch MSIE (or Firefox) .. if it comes up with a 'Dial the internet' window then you need to go into MSIE Tools, Internet Options, Connectuons tab and set 'Never dila a connection' then click on LAN settings and make sure everything except 'Automatically detect settings' is clear.

Good Luck !
