Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC

2 Answers

New Laptop I'm fixing to buy a laptop. I go to college fall of next year. I want to be able to use the internet on my laptop at home right now. I also want to be able to use it other places, and then when I go off to college. . The laptop I'm getting has all the wireless networking capabilities. How do I need to go about setting the internet up right now? Can I use a wireless router, and still use the internet on my laptop along ways away from home? If not, tell me exactly what I need to by, and what I need to do.

    OK, thanks.

    I've been trying to figure that out for hours through several questions.

    You were the first one to actually give me a straight up answer though.

Yes you can use it anywhere. If you have a wireless router in your home you can use the internet there and use it at other wireless locations as well like the library.

I have a compaq laptop which i've had for a year or so. My laptop connects fine with every other internet broadband but not our new home one, and every other laptop in the house connects to this internet...

Compaq Presario V6000T now retired at HP (zero support)
ok its old. 12 long years old now!@!!
first learn that old laptops do not have modern wifi chips.
like other PCs have, a fact.
the answer is Encryption modes.
WEP , WPA or WPA2.
in my home we have WPA2 ONLY AT THE ROUTER.
for security reasons and no old laptop works with WPA2
then learn other homes running old gear, routers.
have WEP on only
and most new PC have that disabled, or gone now.
WEP is net secure now at all so is gone.

now lets answer you in more basic forum
why not learn to setup the PC and your router the correct way.
if your PC only does WEP/WPA (look does it?)
in the router, turn that on. if using wep turn it on, and know that you homes router can be hacked easy.
if you have WPA, turn that on, and use only that if the PC can not use WPA2. use WPA for sure, at LEAST.
turn off TKIP (use AES mode) too,.

im reading your PC spec now.
what wifi?
it has 802.11b/g
in most cases we must find out what wifi chip is there.
and what OS you run, you never said windows what?
then get the newest driver for that wifi chip.
some are not available.
finding the chip true name is not easy.
I can but I have powerful scanners.
the cure is , use the unsafe protocol
or upgrade the driver,
or buy wifi dongle USB (new) and use it. easy and cheap.
use WPA2 only. if wise.

next time post what OS you have
nobody can match working drivers lacking that key fact
is this stinking XP the DEAD OS? or vista? it too is now dead.

I have a 3 year old Toshiba Tecra M4 Tablet Laptop, and my colors are inverted, anything that should come up black, comes up red. Text is okay, but images just don't look right

It would be oen of three things... in order of cost;

1. LCD Invertor has gone bad
2. SCREEN has gone bad
3. Motherboard has gone bad

In either of the three it would most likely take a toshiba tech to pinpoint exactly the problem and do the repair. Although if you are handy enough you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop

Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.

IBM T60 problem

Take it back to them since they are supposed to be taking care of the problems. When you pick it up, before you leave turn it on and let it run while you use a few programs to make sure all is well with it. If not, don't leave with it. Give it right back to them and tell them to get it right and give you a loaner until they fix it. Sadly, there is nothing we can do for you since it seems to be hardware related.

The Right Laptop for College

What are you going to mainly use it for?
If its only college and to run basic apps, macbook will do you fine.
If you're looking to play games, then macbook pro (as it has the latest nvidia geforce 8600gt graphics card)

Wireless not working...

If you want to use the College wireless system, then you will have to conatct the administration and they will point you in the right direction.

Although the service is normally free for students, you need to have the IP, subnet and gateway assigned to the laptop to access the service. They may also request your Mac address from your laptop. This is just the unique identifier to help protect the network from outside users.

Even check with a few of the others you will see at lunch using theirs, they will be happy to point you in the right direction.
