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.

Is there a default password for belkin routers? My roommate has the router in his room and out of the country and I need internet. Is there a way I cam access the guest belkin with a default password?


Hi, Why not contact your room mate and get the password from him? In the meantime, if you are looking for access to the Internet for free, most Council Libraries offer internet access at no charge to card holders.

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....

My roommates laptop is connecting to the internet, mine won't


Sometimes the key length would change for security purposes. What you have to make sure is that you are entering the correct network key.
Use a connected computer like your roommates laptop or hardwired connect you laptop to the router using an ethernet cable to access the setup page of the router.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.1.1. By default, leave the username blank, password is admin.
Go to Wireless -> Wireless security.
You will see the network key. Just copy that and enter it on your laptop.
I hope this helps!

we had similar problem earlier and unformtualtly we have to install the OS again. you can first check you firewall setting, try disabling firewall and check. Or will suggest reinstall the OS.
You can also try running antivirus/antispy/CCleaner etc before that.

Frequent disconnection of internet service


HI rodelio,

Please give me the backbone of your committed internet rate (CIR), is it burstable bandwidth?  Actually router  is designed for Network Address Translation (NAT) which means it is better to have fast ISP that has committed internet rate (CIR). It is constantly happened for internet connectivity fluctuation cause of very low CIR specially when you are connected with more than 3 computers on the network setup.

Much better to used proxy server with linux, or Kerio Route Firewall for better performance of your browsing.

I am glad if you can extend your problem to me. I am here to help you.


Best regards,
