Question about Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop

1 Answer

My wireless network connection disconnected. When I tried to reconnect (I have a secure wireless router connection), my network name wasn't listed in the list of options. I restarted my router and reinstalled it in my PC. However, it still doesn't show up in the options on my laptop. When I try to manually connect, the message I receive is that the network already exists. However, it's not listed. What now?

Web key wireless internet service


I think you meant WEP key. this is a wireless encryption security key. and it is normally required when you try to connect to a secured network. Your administrator should be able to provide you with this. because it varies. i.e you can set it to whatever you want if you have access to the wireless router. in your case Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router
so please if you have access to it, log in to the router and check from wireless security settings.

there is a problem with your WEP key, means the password which is used to enter your router or network. simply delete the network from the network list and connect to the network again and insert the correct shared key.

You need to customize your wireless router:

Here's how to do it.

1. On your main computer, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1
2. It will ask you for username and password. No username and the password is admin
3. Go to Wireless tab. Change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) to your own name or any name. Click Save Settings on the bottom
4. Now go to Wireless Security sub-tab. Choose WPA-Personal for the Security Mode. Type a password on the WPA-Shared Key box. That will be your wireless security key. Click Save Settings.

Then you can try to reconnect to wireless network, you should see your new network name there with security.

Getting wireless computor and router back on line with desk top computor


1. Disconnect power from your modem and router
2. Connect an ethernet cord from your modem's ethernet port to your router's Internet or WAN port.
3. Connect another ethernet cord from a port on your router (labeled with a "1" above it).
4. Connect power to your modem and router.
5. I'm a little unsure about how you plan to connect your wireless computer to the router. The router you selected when you created this question is not wireless-capable.

If your router is wireless-capable, go to the wireless computer. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows XP

1. Right-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop, and select Properties.
2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection.
3. Right-click on View Available Wireless Networks.
4. Double-click on your network from the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).


Windows Vista

1. Click on the network icon on the lower-right of your screen (it should look like two computers with one behind another. It might have a red "X" over it.)
2. Click "Connect to a network" (it also might be labeled "Connect or disconnect")
3. Double-click on your network from the list (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name.

Mac OS X

1. Click on the AirPort menu in the upper right of your screen (it looks like "("s turned on their side).
2. Click on your network in the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).

WRT54G3G router (Mobile)


Try this steps.

Go to Network Connections
Properties of Wireless Network Connection
Click Wireless Network Tab on the top
At the bottom, clear the Preferred Network box. Make sure delete all names that are listed.
Click OK all the way out

Enable the WEP on the router.
Now try to connect to the wireless network again with WEP enabled.
Make sure you enter the 10-digit code and not the Passphrase.

If it doesn't connect, try to power cycle the router. Just unplug the power for 30 seconds then reconnect to the wireless network.
That should do it.
