Satellite A500 - unable to connect to the WLan

I'd like someone to help me.

Have recently bought a satellite A500.
I'm new in the world of laptops so I'm wrong.
I connected to a router via a modem, the two netgear, the news.

Had the two config for my network. Works well as long as ethernet is connected to the router of computer.

My wireless icon on the front of the laptop is orange.
If this should be green as the router?

Pressing FN f8 it tell me wireless is connected.
When I remove the ethernet cable it tell me to fix the problem, I need to plug in the ethernet cable.
But I want to go wireless, I'm sure I'm missing something.

Rang netgear but after that my router and it is not connected to wireless technology they could help me more.
I use windows7.

Thanks to anyone who can help me.

The WLan led can only be ON or OFF. If the light comes on (any color) then it means that the Wlan switch is on!

It seems that the WiFi is enabled. In this case, you will need to properly configure the WiFi network.
You can use the own WLan settings in Windows or a Wlan configuration tool like Intel ProSet utility.

First need choose the right SSID (wireless network name), right of encryption (WEP, WPA, etc.) and password encryption.
Please note that all of these parameters should be the same on the router WLan and WLan configuration software!

Please check if the firewall does not affect the connection to the internet as well!

PS: make sure you use the latest version of the WLan driver
Here you can find the drivers:

In addition, search and read comments here on the forum!

  • Satellite L650 - unable to connect to the public network (has no valid IP address)


    Toshiba satellite L650 laptop computer (with windows 7 64-bit), I bought two days back and I'm unable to connect to the public network. Sometimes, it must be connected to the public network and after a few minutes it disconnects. I get the message "wireless network doesn't have a valid IP configuration him."

    I have visited many forums and did everything, but of no use.

    1. people with disabilities the tcp/ip V6 of the registry.
    2. the DHCP is enabled. With the help of the automatic IP (DHCP)
    3. also tried with a static IP configuration.
    4. uninstalled the antivirus provided with laptop computer (Norton).
    5 disabled the windows firewall.
    6. restored to factory settings.

    I called Toshiba Tech support as well and they have suggested that it may be a problem of H/W but I don't think that so that it can be hardware problem because sometimes he must be connected to the public network. Now I'm left with no option except return the laptop to Toshiba (I'm less interested in this because I know that sending laptop for replacement will be more frustrating).

    Can someone please give some other suggestions for this problem?


    Can you connect to your home WIFI router correctly?

    If you have problems with the public network connection, you should ask the owner of these networks. Usually, there is always a contact, you can ask if you have any problems with the connection.

    What you can try is updated WLAN driver from Toshiba's official website:

    If it doesn't work, ask the person contact I mentioned.

  • Satellite A500 - 03P: unable to connect to the WLan using Win 7 + event message

    Hi all

    I recently bought the Satellite A500 with the offer included Windows7 while he was available late October 09.

    So I had the Toshibe DVD for the upgrade and followed the steps and Visa home premium upgrade to Windows 7. Now I have two questions.

    (1) I get a system event Notification after start, talk to me about the system event log. The full message is below.

    Unable to connect to a windows service
    Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification service. This problem prevents limited users to logon to the system. As an administrator, you can view the system event log to see why the service failed

    (2) I was able to use this laptop for the internet before the upgrade, both via a USB wireless drive as well to the office via a DSL modem.
    Now I can't access the internet after the upgarde of Windows 7!

    For example the Optus dial-up box pop up appears commandeLorsque I click on 'connect', it does not connect.

    Can anyone help please?

    Thank you
    C I

    Hey Buddy,

    (1) did you check the Configuration of the Service for this service? The Boot System Event Notification Service type must always be set to automatic. This service is absolutely necessary for Windows and shouldn't t be disabled or set to manual startup type.
    Check it!

    (2) to be honest I never heard on the internet BEFORE, but normally, it should also be possible to access the Internet with Windows 7.
    Make sure that the WLAN or LAN card is installed properly and check the TCP/IP settings. If you are missing some driver you can get on the page of Toshiba.

  • Unable to connect to the WLAN router satellite P300

    Hello everyone,

    I hope you can help me with my problem.

    I bought a Satellite P300. Now, I'll have some connection problems to my fritzboxfonwlan over a wlan network.

    When I connect my laptop via a cable, all right. Only with wlan i´m problems.
    My router ssid is displayed correctly. I can also type the key. But then the router is not to be found.

    I use as wpa2 encryption.
    I think that Vista has problems with it. Vista has also the most recent updates and my wireless (intel agn5100) card.
    I tried all the three drivers on the side of toshiba. I Don t know what I can do next.

    If you have any ideas, I'll be happy to hear it.


    Have you checked if the address Mac filtering settings can affect the WLan functionality?
    If the MAC address filtering enabled your WLan card mac address has been inserted, then your laptop wouldn't connect.

    Also I recommend you check the settings of the WLan card TCP/IP.
    In the TCP/IP properties, you must set options for automatically

    PS: have you checked whether your P300 is the latest BIOS?

  • Unable to connect to the WLan satellite E300


    I also bought a new Toshiba e300 Satellite yesterday. I have the same problems and have updated to the latest firmware. What is complicated is, I have 3 other laptops (mac, more old toshiba & acer) and 3 iphones, they are all able to connect to my wireless network and it's only the new toshiba which cannot.

    Other devices could see other local wireless in my neighborhood networks, while the new toshiba could see that my own wireless with only one bar of signal strength.

    Looks like the Atheros device is the only issue. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

    >.. .updated to the latest firmware
    Firmware? Which firmware?

    Maybe from other computers laptops don't use WLAN n standard and your new laptop computer for this. Who knows what standards to use all these wireless LANs. Try to check the WLAN settings on your router and your new Toshiba.

    First you need to update the WLan driver.
    Here is a page with all the drivers:

    After that, go to Device Manager-> properties-> Advanced tab WLan card and check if the Draft N has been selected.

    Restart the device and then try again

  • Satellite Pro M70: Unable to connect to the WLan with ConfigFree

    Salvation in the Forum.

    I have problems with a satellite Pro M70, about gaining control of wireless connections.

    When I scan with "The Radar" I have ConfigFree for available wireless accesspoints, I get several points available, but it is not able to connect to one of them. I can read their status and see their marker of WEP encryption.

    When I try to connect to one of them, I get a pop-up dialog, that said (translated from Danish) 'suppliers another software is in control of the wireless network card. When you try to configure a connection through the classic way to windows, windows States that "windows is not able to configure this wireless connection - if you have another program to manage wireless connections, you must use it". I guess it refers to ConfigFree...?

    Is the unnamed "other provider" associated Windows or perhaps associated McAfee (Security Suite 2007)?

    If you are familiar with this problem or something like that I'd be please to know.

    Also - where can I enter keys for WEP encryption for my friends in ConfigFree WLAN routers?

    > Trying to make a connection through the classic way to windows, windows States that "windows is not able to configure this wireless connection - if you have another program to manage wireless connections, you must use it". I guess it refers to ConfigFree...?

    It should not be a ConfigFree. According to you, an Intel ProSet utility or a Client Atheros wireless network adapter might be controls the Wlan configuration!

    Please check if one of the two control the WiFi network tools and turn off!

    > where can I enter keys for WEP encryption for my friends in ConfigFree WLAN routers

    You should have three different tabs in the utility Configfree.
    The second device settings provides the list of devices, and you should see the wireless network connection.
    Choose and use the button network connections.
    There you should find some encryption settings!

    Also check the profile settings tab and the option called security settings

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - unable to connect to the WLAN router


    I brought a 2nd hand Satellite Pro, model version SP6100 (PS610E-029ZV-EN), P4 1.7 Ghz, 512 MB, 30 GB, with Windows 2000 Pro loaded.

    I can't connect to my wireless router. The switch is in the correct position.

    I want to change to XP using the key provided with the new laptop (dual OS) however I can't reformat using a XP disc at the start up or if I use the recovery cd (start with holding C and let go when he works up) it starts but displays 'specification drive not valid' three times and charges Win2000.

    Can someone advise how (or if!) Can I reformat I want?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    See you soon.

    Are you sure that the wireless network adapter has been installed in the laptop?
    Check in Device Manager

    On some series WLan is optional. This means that the WLan card is not installed, but it is possible to install an and, consequently, the laptop contains the WLan switch.

  • Satellite P750: Unable to connect to the other PC with WLAN

    Satellite P750 was working fine until yesterday.

    Today, when you use the Atheros AR9002WB-1NG wireless adapter I can't connect to the other pc on the network.
    However, I can connect to the internet ok.
    Other pc can not see me either.

    * When I use wired everything is ok *.
    I tried to stop the antivirus and firewall, but it made no difference. I reinstalled the drivers and etc. shares checked file.

    Can anyone help please?


    You should enable the option called Ad-hoc to peer option in your WLan settings!
    Go to network connections
    Select connections-> properties-wireless
    Add the new network
    Here you must configure this (insert SSID, encryption, and password), and don t forget to check this is a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network

  • Satellite L505-144: unable to connect to the Wlan 802.11 N

    Hello, I hope someone can help me with this

    I've updated my old network wireless at home so I can stream media.
    I replaced my old netgear G router and bought a netgear DGND3300 dual band N router to the hub and a WNDA3100.

    Office everything is set up ok on these as I can connect up to 300 kbps, which is good.
    The current settings for the router are:
    Up to 130Mbps at 5 GHz & 54Mbps 2.4 GHz"
    channel 36 = N
    Channel 11 = G

    Although the problem is the laptop.
    Now, he says that the wireless laptop is N. When I connect to the router it connects only when G setting and I only have until 45 Kbps.

    Is there a way so that it can connect to BOTH channels to get the full speed or the wireless laptop is only a single tape device?

    Thank you


    Built into the laptop LAN card is a Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11bgn.
    As you can see the wireless network card supports three WLan standards; 802 11 B, G and N.

    First of all, you must make sure that more recent Wlan driver is installed;
    New WLan driver can be found here:

    In addition, you should check if 802.11 N standard has been chosen.
    You should do this in the Device Manager-> card WLan-> properties-> Advanced tab.

  • Satellite C665D is unable to connect to the WLan


    My in-laws are staying with me and their C665D does not connect to our wifi network.
    I can't turn on the wifi settings.

    I looked in to network adapters Device Manager and there is no present. I tried to add a new device through "manage wireless networks" and he says "Wireless is not currently enabled.

    If I try to manually add a wireless network it comes up with 'windows wireless service does not work.

    Look forward to some help on this one

    The error "the windows wireless service does not work" indicates that the Wlan service has not been started.
    Why? I don't know, but you can try to activate this service first.

    To manually start the wireless service, i.e. the WLAN AutoConfig service, perform the following steps:

    1. connect to the computer as an administrator.
    2. Click Start, type services.msc and press to enter.
    3. Locate the autoconfiguration WLAN service, double-click to open its properties window.
    4. on the general tab, change the startup type to automatic and click on the Start button.
    5. click on apply, then ok.

    Then try to connect to the wireless connection and check the result.

  • Satellite A110-195 unable to connect to the WLan router


    I have a wifi router and I have connected my laptop and it worked wery well but on low there is I could not conect to router but woudn't ip address pop up. Internet access was not.
    I am connected to the same router another device and it worked...


    Believe me, there is no general solution, you must check all the settings of your operating system

    First of all that I recommend to check the parameters of the TCP/IP protocol if everything is settled automatically on.
    Then check if you are using encryption parameters right as standard (WEP, WPA, WPA2) encryption and the encryption key.

    It s also advised to reinstall or update the Wlan card driver

    If you used the windows own WLan configuration, I would recommend testing as Atheros Client utility or Intel ProSet Wlan client configuration utility. But it depends on the WLan card what client WLan configuration utility can be used
