Linksys WPC54G wireless adaptor

Hi,

I have inherited a Toshiba Satellite notebook A30, runningwindows XP Home Edition and using a Pentium 4 processor.

It has the WPC54G wireless adaptor with it, but I cannot get it to connect to my internet connection unless I use the ethernet cable.

Please be aware that I do not have recovery disks or instructions for either the notebook or adaptor.

Can you help me, please?

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that I had already downloaded the driver for the wireless adaptor. The device manager says that it is working OK, although the link light on the adaptor only flashes intermittently.

Hi,

A couple of ideas:
1. Download and run "NetStumbler" This is to determine if the Linksys WPC54G is working, the drivers are installed and if your Wireless AP/Router could be detected;
2. Use static IP Add temporarily on your Toshiba Satellite notebook A30 following the specified IP Add from your router;
3. Verify that your AP/Router is not using WEP,WPA or MAC filter.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back with make & model of your WiFi AP/Router, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Install the adapter, downloaad the latest drivers from linksys.com and then open the properties of the wireless adapter.

Next open the settings screen of your wireless access point. make sure that all settings match, such as channel, encryption type/level, everything. then try connecting again.

If you do not know how to get to your wireless acces point's settings tab, browse to the manufacturer's website and download the manual. That should give you enough information to enable you to get your wireless up and running.

I have toshiba a100 .....i uploaded window7 but i m unable to find its display drive.....help me!!!


Systems: Toshiba A100/A105 laptops

Note: the Toshiba support site recommends strongly a BIOS update:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BIOS update for Satellite A100/A105, Satellite M110/M115, and Tecra A7Posted on: 04/10/2007
Updated on: 04/10/2007 15:51:53
In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to the computer. To minimize the risk of ever experiencing this problem, we strongly recommend that you download and install the latest BIOS by clicking the 'Downloads' link that will appear when you are finished reading Support News.

I need WPA2-PSK support for Toshiba Satellite A20S207. How can make this work for Windows XP ? Thanks, Lincoln


Your internal wireless card does not support WPA-PSK. You will have to purchase a USB wireless card to use WPA2-PSK with your Toshiba.

Toshiba satellite A100 fan not working. how to repair it?


Hi,
you have asked your question two times. Anyway, in case you missed it, this is the answer i gave you in the other question:
"you should verify in your notebook's BIOS that the FAN is turned on. If so,you need to open up your notebook and clean or replace your fan. To do so, you can simply follow this guide: http://www.ehow.com/facts_7895896_disassembly-guide-toshiba-satellite-a80.html . Then, when you have found the broken fan, you should clean it with compressed air and verifiy if that solves your problem. Otherwise, take note of the diameter of your fan and buy a replacement."

Hope it helped,
Franz

Hi Arsalan

To answer your question Its "yes". wrong power/ampere rating can shorten the battery life. I recommend that once you replace the battery include the AC adapter.Thanks
