Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook

1 Answer

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 secure a wireless connection. I am resolved to believe that the fault lays within the wireless card & what I would like to enquire, is that are wireless cards universal for laptops or does it need to be a certan manufacturers brand to suit? The reason that I ask this, is for I have two other laptops from different manufacturers other than Toshiba & I just considered if a wireless card from one of my laptops that are no longer in use would suffice. Thanking all at FixYa for there time, trouble & service. Ste

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)

Hi, I have a laptop toshiba satellite c655-s5082, i can't connect to the internet by cable.


What do you mean you can not connect? Is is that the computer will not get a connection at all, or you get a connection but can not access the internet.

If its the first issue you may have to enale the ethernet connection, if its the second it is a totally different issue

How can i connect a toshiba runniung windows me. to the internet via ethernet cable? is it possible with just the cable and no card? is there a programe i can download to help my laptop? what can i do?


Hi,
It should have a LAN (network card) built in to the laptop.
First of all make sure you have the LAN (network drivers) installed. You can do this by checking in device manager.
To open device manager click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click the System icon. Click the Device Manager tab and look in the list for network adapters/controllers.

If the driver is installed you should be able to directly connect the ethernet cable to your laptop.

I'm not quite sure where the ethernet port is on that particular laptop but it will be on the back or sides of the unit and it will be the only port the ethernet cable fits into.

From there you should be good to go, if you can't get a connection reset the modem by removing power from it for 2 minutes, connect the power again, wait another 2 minutes for the device to settle and try the internet connection again.


Regards.
