Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop won't connect to internet

Hi,
I was surfing (on trusted sites:)) when suddenly I saw that computer is recognizing new hardware. Because I wasn't installing or doing anything I tried to stop it and got a message saying something about Ethernet Controller.
Unfortunately I hit cancel or end or something before I read the message through. Since that day I don't have internet.
When I try to diagnose connection problems it just recommends to connect to wireless network (which I don't have). I have cable connection and there isn't any problem with that. I have checked my laptop with AVG and ad-aware. Didn't find anything.
So, any kind people here who can tell me what is ethernet controller and might that the reaon why I can't connect to the net anymore?
Oh, and I have Vista.

    Hi,
    you just made my day if the solution really is that easy :)

    My laptop model is Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467.

    I tried to do a search on Toshiba web page (ethernet vista) but got only information on SP1.

    Maybe you are better in finding the correct driver. Thank you so much in advance!

Hi,
Your laptop is missing the driver for Ethernet controller made for Vista.

You should be able to get it from your laptop brand's website.

I could have given a try if you had mentioned your laptop model :)

All the best.

Toshiba satellite s2652 internet connection problems


You have wiped all drivers by formatting and need to go to friends PC / download latest drivers for the exact model laptop from the vendors site and install them.

NB = install mobo driver FIRST.

Best thing about drivers on the net is that they are later than the ones with the laptop from new.

Can"t surf the net after i format my laptop


You evidently reformatted your hard drive. I would assume that you then installed Windows.
Did you reinstall all the Lenovo drivers for your computer? Sounds like you probably didn't or you would be able to connect to the internet like you used to do.
So--you need to go to Lenovo's site, download all the drivers for your computer (especially the network adapter) and install them on your laptop.

Connect to Internet


Go into the device manager and check to see if the drivers for the ethernet controller are there. If they are, uninstall and reinstall doing a hardware search, if that doesn't fix it then it's a faulty port. (should be under warranty) If the drivers are not there, then you will need to use another computer to go to Dell's support site, download and burn the drivers to a disc, in order to install them into your new machine. Also while you're in the device manager, look for any other device drivers you may need, you will recognize any devices that don't have drivers by a yellow question mark. You might as well burn all of them you need to one disc just in case you need them in the future.

Usb device not recognized


If your laptop is running Windows ME, 2000, XP or above, it should automatically do the New Hardware thing, and mount the drive. If using Windows 98se, you can probably get the drivers from the vendors web site.

Sometimes a usb port will not provide enough power for a specific device. Does the thumbdrive work in other computers? And do other USB devices work when connected to the laptop?
