Question about Toshiba Network & Wireless Adapters

1 Answer

Laptop remote use

My daughter received a new laptop and we are rookies and don't know what we are doing. We have dial up on our home desktop computer and were told that for her to use her laptop we could probably pick up someone else's signal for a 2-3 block radius so she could use it. The only way she can use it now is to hook it up to the back of our CPU for internet access. Is there something we have to purchase, and if so, what for her to use it on the go? We are looking for the least expensive possible way.
Thanks for your help.

It seems your laptop has build in wireless adapter which allows you connect to wireless networks if exist within the area. You may share your neighbors internet connection if they have wireless router also you can access internet from public wifi access locations like cafes, restaurants you can find the wifi locations on www.wifinder.com . Also you can obtain your own router than you can connect to existing internet connection which can be shared more than one computer.

Setup a new network under Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Setup a New connection > Setup a new Network. You need to make the Desktop as an Access point network. This will allow the Netbook to use the Desktop as a "router" and connect threw it to the internet. This is most likely the most time consuming way of doing it. The best bet would to pick up a cheap netgear or linksys router for better stability and ease of access.

I cannot share my home laptop with my work laptop on my home wireless connection. Virgin advise that there is something wrong with the wireless adapter on my home Toshiba laptop.


If you are able to access the Internet on this computer - then there is likely no problem with the adapter. More likely is that the networking is not configured properly.

Printing remotely from laptop -- can I?


I assume it's a Brother printer not your brother's printer right? I have an HP and it's a wireless printer which is accessible through my network, you have to install the printer driver and software on to the other laptop that is connected wirelessly to your network.

Lost the software cd for my asus wireless adaptor


Hello Greg,

Check to make sure the device drivers are installed properly, and the device is functioning correctly, and enabled by doing the following:

1. Start
2. Right Click on "My Computer"
3. Select Manage
4. in the left column of the new window that appears, select "Device Manager"

If you don't see any yellow caution signs or red "x" then your device should be ok.

Make sure your wireless radio is also turned on.

What model is the laptop?
What model is the wifi adapter?
Are both from Asus?

Lan Network Problems


Hello: What I would say is: go to microsoft update and make sure you have all the updates for your OS.

Then; read the posting (below) from someone who had the same issue:

We cannot - even ping - the network addresses after installing - so it was an uninstall and do a system restore to get to the original good working state of the clients.

Microsoft needs to come up with a patch to fix this as we are seeing more and more networked clients having these connection and sharing problems."

Do you understand the above?

Let me know if you do not know how to unistall SP3 and do a Restore...

I'm pretty certain that you can only have 1 host per computer/per name for a network. So, if you want to change the laptop as host you will have to setup a network under the settings. Create a network password along with the network name for that laptop. (Unidentified Network) is a correct network name. It's just that you probably didn't change it to a specific name that you wanted it to be in the box. after doing this, you should be able to go to the other computer's and try to log onto the network domain that you have created. after that in order to get approval to access the network domain you have to enter the encryption key which is the network password. you have to do this to all non hosted computers. after completion, you should be connected to that specific network.

Now you want you're desktop to be the host. Well, from above do the same steps for the desktop. But, instead of (in example) to lets say your laptops network name is (Home). Well, you would have to make the host name on the desktop to be (Home2). then set the encrption key. Then go to all non hosted computers including the laptop that you made the first network. because this is a new hosted network created by you're desktop and connect to that network and then supplying the encrption key to be able to access the network. and you should be good. Just my 2cents. although this may not work because you may have to have to routers to be able to create multiple networks but, like you mentioned earlier you have a wireless on you other laptop you can use the setup for that wireless to make another network. Hope this helps and good luck ;)
