Question about Toshiba Satellite Laptop with AMD Turion 64 X2 Processor TL-60 - Onyx Blue

1 Answer

Just purchased a new laptop from Best Buy!!!

I have a question, we have a router currently in our house because my son plays Xbox 360 on it. I know that I can use the router at home. But if I want to go to other places with my laptop what will I need and how can I start doing that? Sorry, I'm pretty computer literate but this will be my first laptop and I don't know all the ins and outs of one yet. I'm so excited to get a great deal from you guys too! THANKS so much.

There are two ways of getting on line outside your home. 1- you can use the built in wireless card at any location that has free wifi, ie... Macdonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, shopping malls, coffee shops, hotel/motel, etc... all of these offer free wifi. The upside is that it's free, the downside is you have to find a place with free wifi. 2- you can go through your cellular provider, ie... AT&T, Cingular, Sprint, US Cellular, whoever you have and get an airtime wireless card. The cards are around $150, then you will have a monthly charge of around $60. This will allow you to connect anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a signal.

I have cable modem can i hook up my belkin wireless router model #f5d8236-4 v3 to it ...my son wants to play his x-box 360 while im on the computer...please help


theres a number of solutions

you son my have a wireless reciever on his xbox(this is either built in or can be purchased) this will allow him to access the router around the house wirelessly allowing you to keep your cable plugged in to your desktop

protip:,make sure that the router channel number is set to 11 or the xbox wont read the wifi signal

you can get an extra long cable to reach between the router and the xbox (standard cat6 cable) id buy that online as its cheaper than in the stores.this will plug into one of the ports at the back allowing him to play while you surf the net

My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...


Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

My wireless computer will not work while son uses xbox live


It seems as if somehow you assigned the 360 to the same IP address as your wireless router. On any of the devices attempt to release the current IP and grab a new one.

Xbox 360


The Xbox 360 does NOT have an "internal" network adapter, you'll have to purchase one separately (I believe they retail for around $99) in order to connect wirelessly.

If you DO NOT purchase the wireless network adapter then you'll be forced to connect with an Ethernet cable.

Xbox Live Connection Interrupted


Ok, all you have to do when it comes to buying a wireless reciever is to buy the microsoft brand one made for xbox live. (100 dollars) Once you have this;
1. turn of the xbox 360 and plug in the adapter.
2.turn on the 360 and go to the network settings option
3. this should bring up a page offering a view of you ip address and ect., go to the bottom link (3rd), and select it.
4. this should give you the option to select your wireless network, then connect to it and test the xbox live connection.
5. Once you pass the test, continue to hit "b" until you are back at the very main menu and begin playing!

Make sure you have the X-Box Adapter on the same channel as the wireless access point...If your WAP is not broadcasting the SSID then you will have to manually put it in...

Xbox 360 wireless connection


If you already have wireless router you will need something like this:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360wirelessnetadapter/

Or you can always buy a third party wireless device that is capable with Xbox 350.
