Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S2131 Notebook

1 Answer

I am hooked up to a LAN right now. My wireless finds signals but won't give me the option to put in a password when I click on a secure connection. It tries to connect without it and then gives me an error saying I do not have a valid certificate to be on that wireless connection (the router). I tried updating driver but I have no disc anymore. This comp is from 2005 and I no longer have any discs for it. It was re-imaged about one month ago. it took a beating in Iraq and had to be wiped clean.

SOURCE: Toshiba laptop running Vista loses connectivity

The problem is not Vista, the problem is the Netgear. I have seen this happen time and time again with both Netgear (primarily) and D-Link (often). That's why I *only* recommend Linksys.

Worst case - go buy one from Walmart (yes, they have 'em). Hook it up and see the difference. If, somehow, the problem persists, take it back, and you've lost nothing. But I'd bet (as they say down here in the South "dollars to doughnuts") that's your problem :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

SOURCE: Wireless network adapter won't turn on

Hi there.
It sounds to me that the Atheros wireless card may have gone bad, in some cases this does happen.
Check in the bios to make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled, apart from that i cannot suggest anything else as you have just about troubleshot everything a PC technician would do before coming to the conclusion that its the hardware which is at fault.
If the machine is still under warranty then please take advantage of that, if not then a reputable PC repair shop will be able to fit a new card in the laptop and they will make sure it works before it comes back to you.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

SOURCE: Windows 7 Network Security Key Mismatch

The Key is Case sensitive. That is c is not the same as C. Before you enter the key activate your caps lock as most routers automatically translate letters to capital letters for some reason. It sounds as though the key is being entered incorrectly.

Dell vostro a860 won't connect to internet


Why not? Do you have the wireless turned on? Did you put the correct password in?


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

If you put the wrong password in, it will never connect. it will keep trying to connect but never will.

Authentication


That means you probably don't have the password or the Authentication Type set correctly.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

Cannot establish connection with 2Wire and Netgear N900 wireless USB adapter WNDA4100


Why not, what type of message are you getting?

Let's start with Internet Options. If you have Windows XP Click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Internet Options.

When the Internet Options window opens on the General Tab make sure you have a valid web address as the Home Page. If not, create a simple Home Page by typing: http://www.google.com You don't have to click OK now because if you do the Internet Options window will close.

Click the Security Tab and under where it says "select a zone to view or change settings" Click on the one that says Internet, then scroll down to near the bottom right and make sure that DEFAULT is grayed out (whereas you cannot click on it). You can Click on Default just to be sure. Next click the Intranet so that it is highlighted and make sure DEFAULT is grayed out so that you cannot click on it. Do the same thing for the other two zones (Trusted Sites and Restricted Sites). After all zones under the Security Tab are set to Default click the next Tab which is the Privacy tab.

On the Privacy Tab you want to make sure that DEFAULT is grayed out, if not click on it. When in doubt just click the Default tab.

Next skip over the Content tab and proceed to click the Connections Tab. On the Connections Tab make sure that the Never Dial A Connection is checked if you have something in the white box above it in for Dialup and Virtual Private Networks settings. Look down on the right near the bottom and Click the LAN SETTINGS button. When Lan Settings open up the only box that should be checked is the very first box that says: Automatically Detect Settings. If any other box is checked remove the check from it or you will never be able to connect. Click OK to close the LAN SETTINGS tab.

Next skip over the Programs tab and click the Advanced tab. When it opens slide the blue bar on the right all the way down until you get to the bottom of the window. You want to be able to make sure that if you see something like (Use SSL 2.0, Use SSL 3.0, Use TSL 1.0) that you put a check in the box to the left of each one of them. Afterwards you can click OK to close the Internet Options Window.


Authentication


That means you probably don't have the password or the Authentication Type set correctly.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

So i have my desktop set up online, but i want to get my laptop hooked up as well and i have a router. how do i hook that up to?


On the right bottom corner of your screen, you should see a message/icon about wireless networks.

Select the icon and you should see a list of wireless networks. Select your network, add your password (if you set up a password) and you should be connected.

Open your browser.

Hope this helps.

SECURITY BREECH,HOW CAN I CHANGE MY USER CODES?


I am not sure what you mean by User Codes. But you can try changing the SSID and secure it with a new password. Buy a broadband router that includes a built-in firewall, even if your broadband provider doesn't include one with the service package. Secure your wireless network with WPA or WEP. Turn your wireless off when you are not using it. This will prevent others from trying to use your wireless network. Try to check who is using your network and block him or her.

That is all the advice I can give you.
Good Luck.
