Question about Computers & Internet
Computing for Dummies. Hi I need an indepth explanation on how to connect to WIFI on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000 series. It has an Integrated Wireless Lan apparently. I have checked this and it is correct but I cannot connect to it. Can someone explain in detail what I need to do/have and how to go about connecting. This is a secondhand laptop that i have just bought off Trade Me (NZ)and I don't know anything about the Wireless side of it. When I click on the Wireless Connection icon in the System tray it says "No Wireless Networks were found in range". If I go to set up it asks me for a SSID network name. Also on this page is a button that says - Automatically assign a network key (recommended) Next page says - Use a USB flash drive (recommended) or Setup a network manually It also tells me something about the Firewall not allowing the connection???? Please help. Cheers Dummy # 1
When your machine says no wireless networks found in range, your internal wireless is turned off or you are not physically in range of a wireless transmitter. If you have a wireless router that is transmitting or you know for sure that you are in range of one, then look to make sure your internal wireless in turned on. Usually, your machine will have some light on, likely a blue one, that indicates that your wireless is working. These are usually turned on by a small switch located on one of the sides of your laptop or by using the fn button along with one of your function keys (F2, F4, etc,)

You have to have the "Other Half" so to speak... wat ya missing is someone else to connect to... Usually one ALSO has a WiFi Router OR connect to an "Access Point" both of these provide a WiFi Signal that can be accessed by your Wifi. blow are a couple of helpful links.
