Ok ok ok lets do those steps my friend

first of all reinstall the ethernet driver, try to connect now.
second disable all security programmes (if any program is expired then uninstall it)

third go to start
click run
type cmd, click ok
type the following commands and hit enter after every line:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
netsh winsock reset
netsh firewall reset
regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll (that takes few minutes)
regsvr32 mssip32.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml4.dll

now reboot the computer

let me know what happened with u if that doesnt work we will try few more steps and if u r running windows vista tell me to make some small changes in step three

cheers

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

Internal modem is not working


Are you sure it's a modem port and not a ethernet port. They look very similar and people confuse them easily. The ethernet port is slightly larger though. So we can verify we're talking about the correct thing, are you using dialup to connect to the internet? or are you connecting to a broadband router or dsl modem?
in either case you should be able to get drivers on dell's website and copy them over to your laptop.

From a computer that has internet access, download the appropriate ethernet driver for your network card from the link above. As for the recovery disk, you'll have to contact Gateway for a replacement disk.

Ethernet


Check the drivers for the ethernet port in the device manager to see if they are there. If so, then uninstall them and reboot. The machine will find the device and reinstall the drivers. This will correct the problem if it's a driver glitch. If the drivers are not there, then you will need to go to Toshiba's support site and download them. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "can't open the ethernet slot to insert card", could you be more specific and I'll see if I can help you through it.

How do i connect to a lan with a Toshiba Tecra 8000


You can get a bus card that has an ethernet port to hook up via ethernet cable, or a universal wireless card for the bus port or usb port. You can find either of these at Walmart or Bestbuy.

Toshiba Satellite ethernet port disappeared...


I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.
