    Hi Trucker

    If you are connected then you should see My Network Neighbourhood?

    Run Start - Run - type cmd and enter to open a command window. Then type ipconfig /all and check for an IP address and a DHCP address. If you get a similar result to below, then you have a proper connection.

    Assuming this is OK, then check your Internet Explorer options.

    Make sure you have no proxy set in Tools - Internet Options - Connections - LAN settings

Thank you for using FixYa
Congratulations on your recent purchase. In order to get on the internet you have to choose an Internet provider. You say you purchased a router, is it a wireless router, did you purchase it from the internet supplier? If not, the provider will not support the connection. It will take a little more effort to get online. If you have an internet connection, is it cable or is it on the phone line or completely wireless like a 3g or 4g connection? If you have internet to your house then it can be hardwired from the device to your computer with an ethernet wire. It is a port on your computer that looks like a phone jack but slightly larger. There is an ethernet cable that connects the router to the computer, and you IP supplier should be able to help you with all that. Here is a link to find out more about connecting to the Internet.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

How to start wireless in Toshiba Satellite 1905 s 301

What you need first is to install the wireless driver for your wireless card in your computer. If you don't have one you need to purchase a wireless card.
Then read the following info to decide what type of Internet access you require.

Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.
