Hi

have you enabled the wireless connection
different toshiba models have switches in different places

have a look on or around the keyboard for a switch that looks like a small satellite dish and press or slide it

sometimes you have to press the FN+F8 key maybe FN+F2

if this does not solve your problem please add comment below
telling us the model and operating system that you are running

many thanks

Hi there.
If the other laptop is connecting fine then the problem lies with your laptop, possible bad drivers.
This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings.
What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "un-install" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.

keep me informed please as a download of the drivers may be required.

Good luck

Connecting my Laptop to the internet in France


Alternative to using a dial-up modem via the telecom system is to connect via an internet service provider. If this is your home, then you will need to have either DSL or cable piped in via a provider (either the French telecom company or another "ISP"). This service is usually considered "broadband" and is faster than dial-up modelm. If the place is managed by someone else, ask ahead if they have wireless or ethernet (wired) internet service. Your laptop likely has the connector for wired ethernet service, but check if it has wireless capability. If it doesn't you will need to purchase a wireless NIC. These are available in USB and PC-Card formats depending on what you have. A final resort if the choices above do not work, is to get a PC-Card 3G data network card. These are 3G telecom modems that plug right into your laptop. They will come with a monthly access charge similar to a 3G cellular phone (uses the same network). But, it is very important that you check that there is service in the locale that you are going to use it in. These work well for remote locations, but again, you must check coverage first.

Still can't access the web


There will be no dial tone for wireless access as you do not use a dial up modem. Rather you should be seeing a signal strength indicator, usually in the lower right hand corner of your desktop. If you have purchased wireless access from your ISP you should have a wireless access point that the USB wireless adapter will receive the signal from. Follow your ISP's instructions for setting up wireless access. If your provider is Sierra Wireless here is a link to their support page. Click Here

Cannot connect to the internet


open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.

it seems your laptop has build in wireless adapter which allows you connect to wireless networks if exist within the area. You may share your neighbors internet connection if they have wireless router also you can access internet from public wifi access locations like cafes, restaurants you can find the wifi locations on www.wifinder.com . Also you can obtain your own router than you can connect to existing internet connection which can be shared more than one computer.
