You would not need a specific card for your laptop unless you wanted to upgrade to N technology. You would need a Internet Service Provider (ect. cable, verizon) and a router. I'd have Geek Squad setup your router to ensure it is properly setup and secure.

Hi there, I am a second user of a Toshiba Satellite Laptop & although I can achieve a local internet connection via an ethernet lead from my WiFi router when connected to the system, I am failing to...


If you are sure the internal wifi card is no good then you can use an external pc card (pcmcia)that plugs into the side (make sure you have the driver) try a few things first
If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS, .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) try --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---try---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

How do I restore my WIFI capability? I cannot


It sounds like the laptop is not the problem. Have you tried to "power cycle" your router (unplug the power and plug back in)? You may need to power cycle your BroadBand modem first.

If that does not work, check with your internet service provider to make sure they are up.

You can always double check the laptop at a free wireless hotspot in town. I would need more info to give any more suggestions.

Upgrade wifi sofware on gatway laptop lt3116h. bad internet connect on the main floor. how to upgrade software


Do you want to update your software or do you want to update your equipment? Updating your software would be just like applying an update to your WiFi software through the internet. Upgrading your equipment would be like buying a higher end or different ranged wireless card for your laptop. This would increase your capabilities of wireless internet coverage. You could also buy a better router if the "main floor's" wireless access point (router) is not that strong-signaled. It's not that hard to change your wireless card within your laptop. There's plenty of websites that you could find through google that could assist you with that. Just gotta be willing to strap out the cash. Good Luck!

Bought a toshiba satel laptop and want to router it to dell dimen


You don't need a router for the laptop it has a wireless card in it already, buy a router for your home PC and I would buy a linksys with cap 5 network cables and wireless connections so you can use the printer off of the home computer PC. If you have high speed Internet you can request for a router for free with a wireless and cap 5-cable capacity.

This is just one source. I did a google search for USB wireless adapters. They are used by many users. Generally these units cost the same whether online or at the local Radio Shack, etc. because of shipping.
