Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

Toshiba Satellite ethernet port disappeared...

I had my laptop Toshiba Satellite A105-S4211 onboard ethernet port connected to netgear wireless router. Yesterday, there were big thunderstorms and lightening and my wireless router power adapter stopped working. nothing happened to any other electronic components that were connected and there were no sign of blown/fire/smoke on the power adapter of wireless router. But the laptop ethernet port disappeared from the windows. I reinstalled the windows from the recovery cd but no luck. I suspect the ethernet port on mobo is dead too but it is not showing up at all. wireless adapter is working but my wireless router is dead with no adapter...
any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.

Toshiba A105-S2712 Won't Recognize The Wireless Connection


Have you installed the driver for the router that you are using or using the inbuilt windows program to search for your wireless network?

If windows, are you searching all channels or is it set to only find unsecure networks whilst i assume yours is secure?

Hallo , I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D-10Q and a Netgear wireless router from Virgin 54 Mbps do i need a card to go into the laptop to get on to the inter net thank you.


Compliancy : Wi-Fi®
Network Support : 802.11b/g
Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN

That is the internal wireless so no you dont you need any thing to set up a wireless connection
You need to set up your wireless network

Or you should have got an ethernet cable with the router usually small yellow, blue or blue. plug this cable into one of the ports on the back of your router then the other end of cable to the ethernet port on side (i think) of laptop anc conect phone line from main box to router. You dont need no software just switch on router wait a couple of minutes till all lights on router turn green and click on your internet explorer done!
