The first way, and one I use a lot, is just plug your netbook into your router at home, using the netbook's Ethernet port and the cable supplied with your router.
This way works every time, gives a fast and secure connection, but means that you need to use your netbook within cable distance of your router. Any internet usage will be part of your normal broadband usage with your home ISP, but isn't the point of netbooks that you can be mobile with them? Who wants to have nice new netbooks tied up by a cable?

2 - Wireless netbook connection using your home ISP
Another way to get online with netbooks if you're at home is to connect wirelessly to your home router.
It's a very easy process - just turn the netbook on and it will seek out your router. You get a fast connection, good security (if you tell your router to use WPA encryption) and it will usually work anywhere in your house or garden. Several netbooks, laptops or other computers can use your internet connection this way from the same router, so your family and friends can use their netbooks at the same time.
3 - Wifi netbook connection out and about

A really cheap way to get online when you're out and about is Wifi. Many busy locations - pubs, hotels, shopping malls - have "wifi hotspots" which are simply powerful wireless routers that you can use to connect your netbooks wirelessly to the net.
Some are free and can be used by any computers that are nearby. Others are owned by telecomms operators like BT Openzone or mycloud and you need to pay to use them. Monthly subscriptions or pay as you go are available. So are these free and cheap choices ideal for using with cheap netboks?
For anything other than general browsing on netbooks, beware of wifi. The free ones have no security at all, and the others have password protection, but the data you send and receive is not encrypted. This means anyone in the vicinity could snoop and listen in on what you were doing. I don't bother with wifi for this reason.

If you have a wireless router you must know the password you made when you set the router up.
Try also to look in your controlpanel network and shareringcenter.

Hope this was helpfull.

Netbook keeps dropping Wireless Connection


I'd remove the internet connection entirely and then reinstall it - there may have been a Microsoft update that your ISP patch doesn't recognize. Also try going to speedtest.net and take a look at how fast your computer is pinging to the ISP if it is slow contact your ISP they may be able to do a signal refresh to your IP address. Delete the browser history and clear your cache as well. restart the computer

Cannot connect to the internet on the Toshiba Netbook. Has very strong network signal.


Hi,

Troubleshoot the issue by identifying the ip address that your computer has. May it be wireless or local area connection. Check IP Address thru command prompt or DOS.
· press <windows key>+<R>
· type "cmd"
· press ok button. a black box will appear
· type "ipconfig /all" then press enter key
· locate wireless connection and local area connection group by scrolling up/down.

NOTE: ignore highlighted physical address.

If the ip address is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx, this is an invalid ip address. Contact Internet Service Provider. If the ip address is 192.xxx.xxx.xxx, click start and open control panel. then open internet options. click on connections tab. click on lan settings. Make sure no tick box checked. All set your anti virus' firewall settings to default. Then try browsing.

I hope this works for you. KINDLY REPLY IF FURTHER ASSISTANCE NEEDED. Good Luck!

Cannot get Toshiba Netbook connected to wireless network


ok. try this:
open a computer on your network that connects to the network. start -> run -> type cmd and click enter.
then type ipconfig /all
then open your laptop.. go to local area connection and click properties.
click internet protocol on the list and then properites.
click on "use the following ip"
and on the three text boxes below type the same settings as the ones that appear on the pc that you did ipconfig /all. the only differnt will be the ip address. if the pc is 192.168.0.105 you should put 192.168.0.106 or something else.
do the same with dns server.
click ok to close all the opened windows and check the new ip of the laptop

I full signal strength from my rounter but wont connect


Hi there,

This could be due to wrong DNS settings or IP Address. You will need to go in to your network connections by doing the following: "Start, "Control Panel", "Network Connections" and then right click on your wireless connection and select "Properties", then when the new window opens scroll down to something called Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
58eb063.jpg
Open this by clicking "Properties" then adjust the settings as follows:
64ff617.jpg
- Obtain an IP address automatically
- Obtain DNS server address automatically

Then configure your router to assign the IP Address and DNS Settings automatically and your internet should work.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,
