Toshiba A205-S5819 Can't connect to wireless internet

I'm not sure if it's my laptop settings, something to do with Vista, or the router. My wifi works just fine at home or anywhere else I go, however I'm visiting somewhere else, and can't seem to connect to their internet. I can connect to the network, but cannot get through to the internet. I turned off my firewall and tried resetting the computer, the router, but can't seem to get anywhere. Other laptops can connect to the internet, but they have windows xp or mac. But with Vista, I can only get access if I manually plug it in via eithernet to the router, but no luck with wireless. Anybody have anything?

    I can get it to work if I manually plug it in, do you know if this makes a difference or not?

  • yseent Jul 20, 2008

    I've searched everywhere online (at least that I can think of?) to see if the router (Encore ADSL+2) is compatible with vista or not, and I'm not sure if I"m looking int he right place, but how do I find this out?

The router you're trying to acess may not be set up for Vista or may not be compatible with Vista. I had to upgrade the router at my shop in order to work on Vista OS machines.

    This does make a difference. The ethernet configurations have stayed the same, the problem is in the wireless router configuration. The configuration is why I had to upgrade the wireless router at my shop, so I could address issues concerning wireless machines with Vista and check to be sure the wireless was working after a system reload.

Hi there, Before we start, try hooking your laptop up directly to the modem - if you're not getting an internet connection there, call your Internet Service Provider. If you are, then follow the steps below.
1) Make sure that you're not using more than one router at the same time. One router should be hooked up directly to your modem in the WAN port. If you have wireless security enabled, go to step 2 2) As a test, remove the security on your wireless network and then see if you can access the internet properly. The router can be accessed by typing it its address in internet explorer, as long as you are connected to the router. Generally the address is 192.168.1.1 3) If you still can't access the internet, go to Internet Explorer Options, the Connections tab, LAN settings, and make sure "use a proxy server" is NOT checked. 4) If you DO get an internet connection now, go back to your router and enable WPA security (some older laptops have problems with WPA2 connections).
If everything doesn't work, post back with some more details! Alex

My toshiba satellite laptop want connect tothe internet


It could be a couple things: 1. Try connecting using the wired connection if you can. If it works, then problem most likely with wireless. 2. Try connecting wirelessly maybe using a public WIFI hotspot or a friend's connection. That will rule out your router. 3. It could be a browser issue: Start / Run / Inetcpl.cpl and then check the Internet settings. Make sure there are no proxy settings set.

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)

How or where do you set up a wifi connection?


As far as I know, this laptop came with Windows Vista installed?

I also assume you have an wireless network set up and ready to use?

Need ESSID and WEP info for a Toshiba Satellite A205


The users guide for your laptop won't have information about ESSID or WEP for any wireless networks you are trying to connect to. SSID is Site Security Identification. That is the name of the wireless network you are connecting to and WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy and is a key that is set up on the wireless network that if you don't know that key you can't use that wireless network even if you know the SSID. Each wireless network will have its own ESSID and WEP settings. If you control (I.E. you have the username and password for that router) the wireless router that you are settings up you control what the ESSID and WEP settings are. If you purchased the wireless router that you are trying to connect to, you might need a users guide for that router or if the company you get your Internet from owns your wireless router, you need to contact them concerning the setup of that wireless router.

Hope that helps.
Good Luck
