Wireless :: Toshiba Satellite - Unable To Connect Dialog Box
Feb 15, 2011
My Toshiba Satellite (C655-S5049) with Atheros wireless works just fine at my home and a number of public wireless locations (Panara Bread, libraries, school, etc.) There are many other public wireless locations where I try to connect and just get an "unable to connect" dialog box which gives me the options to "diagnose connection problem" (blames the access point). The places that work, work consistently. The places that don't work, I've never been able to get in even though people around me are online with their machines.I'm running thie machine pretty much as it was delivered out of the box. I've installed AVG for virus protection, and I have all the default protection settings (firewall, sharing, etc.).
I am having to use my ethernet for my lap top, Satellite Toshiba. I have a router and the other laptop in the house works but mine wont. Cox blames it on Toshiba and Netgear and netgear blames it on Toshiba. i blame it on Cox who says for some reason my Toshiba wont allow the signal to be picked up. It goes elsewhere but not my laptop. PS is my satellite burner capable or do I have to buy softwARE?
I recently reformatted the hard drive and when I finished I tried to connect to our home network and the laptop will not. The wireless is on, the network shows up, I click connect, put in the password, but it keeps coming up that it cannot connect. When I click diagnose, it reads that I can either try reconnecting to the network or reset the wireless router/access point and try again. We have a desktop connected, 2 laptops, & TiVo with no problems. This is the only laptop that has a problem. Yesterday I reformatted another Toshiba laptop's hard drive and had no trouble reconnecting to the home network. I've read several threads regarding this matter, and have tried the following:
(1) TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows Vista - nothing looked unusual with each step, and (2) ipconfig /all - attaching the txt file with results.
I am at a loss. I don't want to hard wire it as the last time I did this, the internet was lost on all of out devices and it took me a day to get it back to the way it was.
I am trying to connect my Toshiba Satellite A205 to wireless internet through Comcast. It says its connected but only locally and will not let me surf the internet. Every other wireless device in my house connects to the same wireless I am trying to connect to, but my laptop won't.
I have existing wireless system router "Netgear wireless G router WGR614v9" and connected to DELL PC and laptops (two) and both are having window XP system.I have old computer ( Toshiba Satellite 335CDT with window 98 and I want to connect this to my existing wireless system.
One friend brought over his Toshiba Satellite so I could connect it to the internet with a 3G USB modem... I know the basics about networks, since I run the networks in the businnes I'm working... But this computer is strange... Once I connect the modem and the drivers are installed the computer shows that it has a internet connection, and I can PING websites in the CMD, but entering any browser programm, I can't browse and it doesn't conecct to Itunes store if I enter Itunes; which means that the internect conection isn't complete or something I have tried EVERYTHING but haven't been able to do anything! I can't get any other proof that the computer is connected to the internet than to ping adresses!
my Toshiba satellite won't connect to the internet. My wireless internet connection is excellent, all my other computers are running. I have turned the computer/modem & router on and off and still no avail. I have used the windows network diagnostic, and it comes up with router/broadband modeum be preventing internet conncection, automacically get new ip setting for the newtork adapter wireless connection, reset the network adapter wirleess network connection. I have done all 3 and it still won't connect.
A few weeks ago my AC adapter for my toshiba satellite laptop quit working so i had to buy a new one. upon arrival of my new adapter, it seemed like i couldn't connect to the wireless internet at my family's house which was working fine for the home computer. I tried to get on the internet in an airplane and I couldn't connect. All of these wireless connections are working fine and no other computer seems to have the same issue. whenever i try to connect to a network in range or my home network, it says that i only have limited connectvity. I have tried posted resetting commands in the comand prompt and then rebooting but it still says I am in limited connectivity.
i have a home network my dell netbook and dell xps desktop are connected to it, both are able to connect to the internet, my toshiba satellite for some reason won't connect. i think the wifi radio isn't working because there is an icon on the front of the lapptop with a picture of a wifi transmitter, and the amber light is lit for that. my router won't recognize it and neither will the other computers. it was working just fine to connect to the internet before i set the network up with the other two computers. the toshiba is the only one that has windows 7 btw, the others one has vista and one has xp. don't know if this has anything to do with it, but im stumped. i trtied to do it manually, but the router keeps saying the mac address is invalid, i get that from ip config.

My brother just updated the firmware on my Netgear N150 router. My computer shows my wireless network and shows full strength, but says unknown error when I try to connect. It does not appear to save the network password (WEP). My bro reverted the firmware, but still no go... Ethernet works fine, but unsure if it is limited to onmy my wifi. The Error Mesage reads: Wireless association failed due to an unknown reason
I'm looking at a friends laptop as he said he'd started having problems getting on-line. I've tried it at my home and it briefly worked before it stopped again. It won't connect to my wi-fi or connect via ethernet to router or even straight to the modem through the ethernet.It's a Toshiba L540-D running windows 7It did initially have a few viruses and a couple of Trojans which i have cleared.I have a dlink router which it recognizes and is showing 'connected to' but its also showing 'unidentified network' and 'no internet access'.
How to get my computer to work. Nothing that i've tried has worked. I've tried uninstalling Norton, typing cmd into "run" and using winsock and config/all. At this point I have no more ideas on what to do.
ATT just sent me a replacement Netgear 7550 ADSL Gateway. I previously had a 2Wire modem that could connect with my Mac desktop and Toshiba laptop without issues.Now my Mac is up and running wireless on the new gateway (no problem), but the laptop (Windows 7) is not connecting and Windows troubleshooting goes not resolve the problem. It will connect via Ethernet but ATT could not get it on wireless. The ATT tech signed on the the laptop and could not get it done.
My Toshiba will not connect. I keep getting cannot connect to server messages. Also get the error 623 message. Im not sure what to do. I use Windows xp on it. Bought it in 2006. I had thought about reseting it to factory settings but I never made restore disks and cannot find the toshiba reset stuff.
I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop....Model PSLB8U 0D8038. I have a "Clear" (Brand name) wireless router internet service. I have having a problem connecting to it or any neighborhood routers. The network satellite is picking up the routers in the area but won't connect to any. When I hit windows network diagnostics, it is saying cannot be repaired automatically.
I have a Toshiba satellite L305D-S5900. It will recognize and connect to wifi networks at starbucks, libraries, etc. but I just got cable internet at my house. Set up the modem (standard motorola cable modem) and router (Netgear Wireless-N 300, WNR2000) correctly and they are working fine on my girlfriends laptop and ipod touch but my computer will not connect to the internet.When I try to connect it pulls up the network and says that it successfully connects but there is no blue dot on the icon that shows a real internet connection. If I pull up the network/sharing center then it shows Local Only access and says I am connected to the network, but not the internet.
I've tried all of the troubleshooting things that the system goes through and even reset the IP addresses to match the router and still nothing.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L745, just a few days ago it stopped connecting to the Internet it still connects to the network but not the Internet. It's done this before but normally all I have to do is reset the router. I have tried everything I know ( which being a teenage girl isn't much) and nothing seems to be working. Also as far as I know the computer does not and has never had any problems with malware/viruses n' that stuff.
I'm having to use my desktop because my laptop(Toshiba Sattelite...runs on Windows 7) now has NO CONNECTIVITY. It goes from "Limited" to "No" connectivity. I have it hooked directly up the router now and NOTHING. I'm not sure of what to do. The command prompt doesn't work. I typed "ipconfig /all" then the next command was "ipconfig /release" and I got three lines of errors. DHCP is enabled only under the "I-E NIC" Everywhere else it is not enabled. When I hover my mouse over the bars at the far right of the status bar it says my wifi name and under it says "no internet access," HOWEVER, when I click on it...my wifi name is at the top and it says in bold letters CONNECTED.
I just removed some viruses from a laptop and I also did a system restore on it because it wouldn't start up right. Now I can't connect to the internet on it. I have a desktop and four other laptops that are connecting fine. I can't connect with Ethernet or wireless. It just says identifying and when I run a troubleshoot it say "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings". I have already try many things, disabling and enabling adapter, uninstalling it, downloading drivers, and I try some cmd stuff that I found looking around, but nothing is working. I'll take any suggest gladly and retry stuff I have tried already. It is a Toshiba satellite L305D-S5974 with windows 7 home premium. If you need anymore info on it just ask.
I can't turn WI-FI on in my Toshiba A 665, Win 7. At the biginning worked good ,than vanished. Checking Fn > F8 below main icon (with an antena ) do not show up other four icons below, like they suppose to do. So I'm not even able to try to turn it on. Restarting doesn't do at all. Pushing Wi-fi switch, above the keybord, doesn't even show On/of icon.
I recently moved and my Toshiba Satellite laptop won't talk to my NetGear router. On the phone with NetGear for hours - tried everything - but tech says the problem is with the laptop and somehow the "Wireless Zero Configuration" tab in my Services is not there? I can connect through the router with my IPOD and Dell laptop.
I have a Toshiba Satellite M70-122, running with Windows XP. A few weeks ago, it stopped connecting to my wireless, but it connects to others. I can connect to my wireless with my cellphone, so it might be a problem with the laptop.And I can connect to the internet with the cable. It's just the wireless that doesn't work.
I am using a toshiba satellite and have accessed the router through another computer and was able to access the internet. I am currently using the ipad to post.At first when i choose my internet connection, it will automativally try and detect the network type, then tell me that "windows is unable to connect to the selected network". I have read other user posts and went to the wireless properties and changed the network authentication to shared and unclicked the "key index". Now, when i click on my wireless network it will automatically ask me to enter my network key. But after i do that, all it does is wait a few seconds and close that dialog box without connecting me.[code]
