Re: Tecra A8 PTA83: WLan loses connection

For the third time, I tried to load the SP3 for XP on my Tecra laptop.
Each time, despite the upgrade the driver for the wireless network intel version 12, I lose all internet connection.

Can someone help me here please. I'm sure it should work a bit better than that, but it is perhaps down to me not following a sequence of game. So if anyone can help it would be appreciated, and my dear wife would be really happy, because it is his laptop.



Go to-> WLan card properties Device Manager and disable the power saving option.
This option must be placed in the last tab in properties. In addition, you can access the Advanced tab.

By the way; I advise to use the WLan drivers on Toshiba Europe WLan page:

And if possible update the BIOS to the latest status.

    Thanks in advance,

    As far as I know this will work with a digital output only sound. At your Tecra this optical port? I don t think so. I know that Toshiba multimedia notebooks have a.
    So I think that you cannot connect to 5.1 surround sound directly on your Tecra.

    Sound in the Panel options are standard options of Vista.

    My pro iPad connects to the WIFI, but loses connectivity to drops in use.  My other IOS devices (iPhone, macbook, etc.) do not have this problem.  Ideas to solve?

    Hello BrooklynWM!

    I definitely want my iPad to stay connected to the Wi - Fi connection while I use it.  Thanks for posting that other iOS and OS X devices have no problem with the connectivity dropping.  We can try a few things.

    Would first go through the steps listed in this article: If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch connects to a Wi-Fi - Apple Support Network

    Then if it does not help, you can check network settings with this: recommended for the WiFi routers and access - points Apple supported

    After trying those, if you still see the drop connectivity, make sure the iPad Pro is updated with iOS 9.3.2 and check to see if the connection when you are in a certain place, time, or one event happening elsewhere in the House.

    Best regards.

    I have a Toshiba Tecra A8 PTA83E, recently, I inserted 2x2gb DDR2 PC6400 (800 Mhz), my laptop supports only PC5300 (667 Mhz), memory works well, but under ubuntu (x 64) I see only 3, 2 GB, WIN 7 (x 64) and in memtest 3, 3 GB. Why this behavior? Is because the modules of memory has a greater frequency than those who support the laptop? If I insert a memory module(2GB) at a time I see 1, 9 GB. Thank you.


    I guess that the other part of the main memory is shared by the graphics chip.
    What value memory appears in the BIOS?

  • Tecra A8 PTA83E - installation of package of added value

    Tosiba Tecra A8 PTA83E
    Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate X 64

    I was unable to install the Toshiba Value added package (vap-vista-1011btn-en) or any version before it. I talked to technical support Tosh for many times and they always promise of customer support will respond to the request, they never do.

    Towards the end of the installation, start the process of "Computational space needs" an error dialog box that contains "ID_ERR_NOTINSTALLVALZ_MESSAGE". The only option available is 'ok' and when this field is selected the installation rolls back and the finishing screen says "The wizard was interrupted before that TOSHIBA Value Added Package can be installed completely".

    I'm, I'm sure you understand, VERY frustrated by this problem. I bought (the very expensive) Vista Ultimate as Toshiba, claim that this laptop is Vista ready and it is quite possible, but the drivers and software provided are not. I also have problems with:

    Free config utility
    WinBIOS updater
    Audio driver
    Graphics driver

    I will record these problems from another thread I want to deal with these problems one at a time.

    Thanks in advance for any help being given/offered.


    You run the 64-bit version of Vista?

    I m not very surprised that you are not able to install the Package Toshiba Vista added value.
    All the drivers, tools, and utilities are designed for the 32-bit version of Vista!

    To my knowledge the drivers 32 bit don t run on Vista 64-bit operating system!

    Regarding the error ID NOTINSTALLVALZ ERR MESSAGE.
    It seems that the BIOS update could solve this problem.

    This was reported in different threads here in the Toshiba forum!

    For example:

    Thanks for your help.


    I wonder why you are not able to install the LAN driver and why an additional device appears as an unknown device in Device Manager?  :|

    I ve checked the page pilot European Toshiba and found everything to install the drivers successfully on the Tecra A8 PTA83 series...!

    All the XP drivers are available.
    I presume that check you didn t txt file of installation instructions that was placed on the driver page! Am I wrong?

  • WiFi loses connection intermittently and the erasure of the arp arranges

    This has been asked before many times, but none of the above worked for me so far.

    I have a MacBook Pro with El Capitan on it. From time to time, usually 5 to 10 minutes,

    my connection drops and I can browse the internet. As:

    4 bytes of icmp_seq = 7646 ttl = 53 time = 13,091 ms

    64 bytes of icmp_seq = 7647 ttl = 53 time = 17,035 ms

    64 bytes of icmp_seq = 7648 ttl = 53 time = ms 13,716

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7650

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7651

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7652

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7653

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7654

    Shooting, then turn on the WiFi will fix the problem, but I tried to limit the problem

    and I discovered that deleting IP of the route in the arp table will also fix connectivity


    $ sudo arp d

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7718

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7719

    Request timeout for icmp_seq 7720

    64 bytes of icmp_seq = 7725 ttl = 53 time = 15,173 ms

    Deactivation of unicast arp has NO had no effect either:

    $ sudo sysctl-w = 0


    -J' have two MacBook Pro at home. Other works without problem.

    -My phone and other devices work also with the same router with no problems.

    -The problematic MacBook works with other WiFi networks without any problem.

    What could be the problem?

    Yes, clear arp fix it. Very familiar with it.

    I had this problem for 2 years and more than 2 or 3 MacBooks, on El Capitan, Yosemite, and Mavericks.   I Googled it every 1-2 years months.  I captured packets and tested several access points... The best fix so far... is the arp compensation, and I have the automated at the moment:

    in a terminal:

    While true; make sudo arp - da; sleep 2; fact

    When the window is open, every 2 seconds, my arp table gets undervalued... and if I lose connectivity, the maximum cut is 1 to 2 seconds.

    I noticed that in some places, I don't have the problem... its as if my laptop reacts badly to some other customers on the same WIFI network.  This question makes me crazy, and I can't imagine how was such years.  If I don't fix it manually, I find myself for 30-120 seconds every few minutes.

    Whenever I work with external devices via USB ports (all kinds of devices but my external hard drive Smartdisk CrossFire and my iPod in particular), after a certain period of time (sometimes minutes, sometimes hours) the laptop loses connectivity with the device.

    If happens to be listening to the music, download photos from a camera or laptop computer for the ' net or sync of the iPod, the connection is cut off, turning off the device and I have to start all over again!

    I'm almost at the point of launch of the laptop by the window, so any help is most welcome.

    This happens also with the external USB mouse?
    This occurs if the power adapter is plugged or only if the laptop running on battery?

    In-hubs properties > Device Manager USB root-> power management
    You will find the option called allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.

    I would recommend the brand and disable this option.

    Maybe it helps.

    By the way; When do you update the operating system? I think that it s there long time, perhaps some system files or registry entries are corrupted or a 3rd party application affect the USB functionality?

  • Photosmart HP 7520: All wireless network devices will lose connectivity after printing

    Dear all, 
        I have a problem with my HP Photosmart 7520 printer where all wireless network devices will lose connectivity after a printer has been sent to the printer.
    * Summary
    Wireless network unusable after sending one print to HP printer
    No device ( computers nor smartphones ) can use the Internet nor access internal networks ( 192.168.0/24)
    * Details

    HP printer connects to working wireless network.
    Other devices ( phone/computers ) already connected and working.
    From any device, send a document to the printer.
    Printer prints document successfully.
    Immediately after printer has printed all devices cannot access internet IP range ( including HP printer ) nor Internet nor router ( ).
    * Reproducibility
    * Work around
    Disconnect all devices from the network.
    Power off printer.
    Reboot Internet router.
    * Attempted solutions
    Removed wireless configuration.
    Factory reset.
    Added wireless configuration back.
    Powered on and off printer.
    * Printing tested with

    * Not tested
    Ethernet cable directly connected to router.
    * Internet Router

    Number of brand and model of the router?

    These settings are to set up your printer wireless (or wired):

    • Stay connected to your router
    • Trouble printer status 'offline '.
    • Wake mode 'sleep'
    • All wireless devices stay better connected

    While the DHCP is convenient, devices like printers (wired and wireless) should always be assigned a (fixed) IP address manually to avoid conflicts on your wireless network and must be outside the range of the router DHCP.  After the adjustment of the static IP address the computer must be updated to show a Standard TCP/IP port with the IP address of printers under printer properties/Ports.

    1. Set a static in the printer IP address (click here) outside the range of the DHCP of the router (check your manual). It is for Linksys routers, but can be used for all routers. Check your DHCP range and change this first if necessary. More Help Wireless Printing is here and here and still more here.  Video here explains the problem and how to solve the problem. <--> So watch this!
    2. Or check in the printer "Auto Off/sleep/Energy Saving Mode" is disabled the System Mode Time Out is set to zero (0) Use the built-in webserver (EWS) by visiting the printer address IP address in the address bar of your browser, click on settings tab/Auto Off. Or use the printer, printer Home Page (EWS) Wizard. Also check your printer properties.
    3. If the printer supports and has IPv6 enabled, disable the IPv6 option in the printer.
    4. Make sure that the printer is connected directly to a socket wall and not to a UPS, power strip or a lightning arrestor. This will cause the printer to drop offline connection and disconnection (checked yes!).

    Additional measures to take if you continue to have the problem (if they are posted)...

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 all-in-One connected as network printer loses connection

    In December 2011, I bought a HP Officejet Pro 8600 all-in-One to replace an Officejet 6500 as my network printer home. The 6500 worked very well on my cable, but his screen did not, I tried some of the features offered by the 8600 and I got a good price on a new warehouse of BJ. I have the 8600 connected via ethernet (not wireless), with a static IP address. All my computers on the network are running Windows XP Pro SP3 and are up-to-date with Microsoft updates. However, from one day to the next my 8600 will lose connectivity scan (Scan of the computer shows it as being disabled on all my computers at the same time, and I can't reconnect), and if I do not have anything he'll (as in a few hours) also lose connectivity impression. The only way to restore connectivity is to uninstall the HP Officejet Pro 8600 device software basis of all computers, and then reinstall the printer. I had a phone conversation and two debates with HP Technical Support; They suggested that the problem is in the firewall on the computers (but if that were the case I don't think that the loss of connectivity would occur on all computers at the same time), the IP address setting (doesn't make sense) and the printer driver is not not the latest version. I tried all the suggestions, and none of them have solved the problem. The last counselor "has raised the issue to the next level", which proved to be a Manager with no technical expertise and his only suggestion was that I have to return the printer to the merchant. I think the problem is the firmware in the printer (which, according to the 'update' on the printer option, is the latest version). Any other suggestions or experience?

    After a lot of research and find the settings that I did not know that Windows XP offered, I found that the following appear to have solved the problem I've known - at least the printer is now operational for more than 48 hours without losing printing or scan connection. Here are the steps I used:

    1. Start Control Panel  connections network and Internet

    2. Choose "network connections."

    3. Right click on "connect to the Local network.

    4. Choose "Properties".

    5. In the top window is the name of the Ethernet computer connection port, select "Configure" next to this window

    6. Select the tab labeled 'Power Management'

    7. Uncheck the box "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

    8. Select the "Advanced" tab

    9. Select the entry "power saving Mode".

    10. If this entry is set to change 'On' to 'Off '.

    11. Select 'OK', and then close the windows that were opened

    I met the wierdest problem.

    My PC loses the connection with my WRT54GL router and in this case the only thing that brings the back of connection is made power cord from the router and then by him plugging.

    When the PC loses connectivity to the router all other computers in the House connected by a wireless connection stay tuned! Only the PC connected by LINE loses connectivity. Restart the modem or PC does not help. Even clicking on the RESET button of the router does not help.

    I am running Windows XP, the router is set to STAY ALIVE, I can connect to the router admin and see the IP but can not use the internet.

    Does anyone have any idea why this happens?

    Thank you


    On your computer, turn off the firewall and Antivirus and then check if you are able to go online or not. If still no then on your computer, open the command prompt window and type 'ping' and press on enter and check whether you have found all the answers, if so, you can assign a static DNS address for your computer.

    On your, click Start - Control Panel - network - computer connection, right click on wireless network connection and click Properties and then select "TCP/IP Internet Protocol" and click on properties and below to select the option "use the following syntax address DNS server" and in favorite type of DNS: and auxiliary DNS: and click OK...

    Once done, you can restart your computer and check if you are online.
