You have to update the wireless adapter driver on the toshiba website. I'm guessing you have an Atheros adapter because those usually have this problem. The driver is not advanced enough to log onto a WPA or WPA2 encryption, WEP will work fine. The driver updates have a 50/50 chance of fixing the problem otherwise you are stuck with WEP.
First you will need to check the wireless settings of the router. Do you have any computer connected to the router ? If not then connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router, check the wireless settings of the router. Once you have all the wireless settings of the router then you can try to connect to the wireless network on your wireless computer.

what ever the password is for the wireless router when it was set up for 'wireless'. If you are using the wirless router you need to choose which network you are logging onto and then put in the password to get access to it. If you do not know it ask the person who set up the router what password they used.
