Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC

Router? "If I use a wireless router to get the internet for my laptop, can I still use wi-fi at locations such as Starbucks? Yes you can, you just have to connect to the network wherever you are and provide the password for that location if it has security." Please explain what you mean. What if I'm no where near range of the router?

You need to be in a location near a wireless router.
If you go to say Starbucks they would have their own wireless router. Some places like this will put a password on the wireless network. You may have to ask them for the password. Although, most of the time it is open access.

Can I connect my Pocket WI FI to Router with USB Port so that I can share my Internet connection to my other computers.


Pocket WI-FI? Doesn't that mean that it gives wireless internet? Or is it that all your computers are not WI-FI capable? If your computer have wireless connection, all you have to do is connect your computers to the pocket WI-FI. And yes, you can use the router as a repeater, but only if the router have that capability? Just Google how to use a router as a wireless repeater and it should give you a few options.

Can i use connect dongle as wireless adapter


Yes definitely ,I think i need lots more information about router version, IEEE standard.
basically adapter that uses mobile phone networks to provide broadband as a WiFi Dongle while USB WiFi adapter can be used to connect your PC to and existing wirless network provided by a wireless router.

Wi-fi not working


If you are connecting to someone's wireless network without theie permission then they most likely decided to secure their wireless network.
You can connect to a free wireless network at locations such as the airport, Macdonalds or Starbucks etc. These are ususllly unsecured wireless networks.

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Got any other "wireless" device that you can try, such an iPod Touch, to try to pickup a signal from your router?

Does your laptop have a switch or slider or FN-key-plus-some-Function-Key-1-thru-12 to disable/enable the laptop's wireless adapter?

If you take your laptop to another location with "free WiFi", such as MacDonalds or Starbucks, can you pickup their wireless network? If not, then the problem is _NOT_ your D-Link router.

If you use your desktop to connect to the web-server "inside" the router, does the wireless transmitter on the D-Link show as "disabled" or "enabled" ?
