I had the same problem with my laptop, and surprsingly I switched the wires differently than what the steps told me to do (I have linksys, I dont know what you use) and it worked. check the little wireless symbol on your bar at the bottom of your screen and rightclick on it. click on 'network and sharing center) and there should be a diagram showing teh connection from the internet to your wireless router to your laptop. usually there is a bright red X where the connection is a problem. if you switch the ethernet and other wires between your router and your modem, this will tell you if there is a problem. hope this helps!

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.

Wireless connection problems


Its hard to diagnose cause the process starts long before your current setup..ie, programming your router. So I have attached a website from Microsoft that walks you thru the steps to set up your wireless home network so you can backtrack...good luck and let me know if you have any problems. Pls rate this solution.

Cannot maintain wireless connection


Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).

Cannot connect new laptop to internet


Do you have a router set up? If not two things you can do:

1) Buy and setup wireless router wired with desktop and wireless with laptop.

OR

2) Remove network cable from back of Desktop and plug into laptop each time you want to use Internet. Cheaper option but more hassle to switch back and forth.
