Satellite L40 - the Wireless does not connect until svchost has been disabled


I have a Satellite L40 without BONES, I bought and I installed a XP/SP3. I have a small problem when I connect to my wireless NET. It does not connect until I open the Task Manager and remove one of the two svchost process open with the name 'network service '.

Someone has an idea of why this never happens and how to fix it (I can opperate thereafter, but is a little annoying to have to do each time).

Thank you.

Tried to reinstall the wlan drivers and utilities already? When you do so, you should check the download pages of Toshiba for the latest version of the driver.

Is the WinXP installation you have performed, had integrated SP3 or SP2? Because I would like to know if wlan worked with SP2.

  • Satellite L500D-163 - Wireless does not

    Laptop: Toshiba Satellite L500D-163 (with card wireless 802.11 b/g/n)
    Router: Pirelli Discus (having support 802.11 b/g).


    I bought a portable Toshiba, Satellite L500D-163, two days ago.

    Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux 10.04, the Wireless does not work. It shows all the available wireless network neighborhood, including mine, but it connects to my network.

    I also have an Acer laptop that connects to my network wireless without problem.

    I placed the Toshiba laptop side by side with my Acer laptop and tried all the options:
    802 11b, 802.11 g - WEP, WPA, WPA2
    with simple passwords of the style: "00000000".

    and SSID wireless to the router changed something as simple as "abcde".
    Computer Acer laptop connected without problem in all cases, but Toshiba didn't connect.

    In Windows 7, the connection information appears as connected but 'Limited' and the software Toshiba says that the laptop is not getting an IP address.

    I manually entered the IP address (, subnet mask ( and the default gateway ( router =) below the configuration in Windows 7 wireless card, but it did not work.

    The laptop must support Toshiba, or y at - it an incompatibility with my router?

    Thank you.

    Great! Thanks for that!

  • Satellite Pro 6100 Wireless does not work after restoring from HARD drive

    After that restore disks for installing a new HD and use and to update XP sp2, the Wireless does not work and if the card is installed XP hangs then works in fits and starts. If the card not in place, not bad at all.

    Booting from a Linux CD, the card works perfectly! I assume that the driver is the problem. The wireless card is the original, an Agere MPC13A-20/R, with Toshiba p/n PA317U-1MPC.

    I have found some drivers Agere, but am not sure

    (1) if they are correct
    (2) how to install since the machine works in a way limited with the card in place.

    Any advice?


    I checked the page of the pilot and the only available for Windows XP WLan driver is the driver of v.1.11.108 Agere.

    (1) just try to install this driver. If the driver is not correct or is not compatible, then windows will not install the driver and you will receive a notification. You just have to try

    (2) generally you may reinstall the driver from the Device Manager. Open network controller tree, and then you can reinstall the driver.

    But this is only possible if the windows started successfully

    PS: Have you checked the information of Microsoft Windows XP SP2 update on the page of the Toshiba driver.
    I discovered that you need to update several utilities if you have installed SP2 on this laptop.

  • Linksys Router WRT160N - Wireless does not connect to the cable modem

    I installed the Linksys WRT160n router to replace an existing G router. When installed the new wireless router works, but the router does not receive a connection (IP address - look under status) of the cable modem (so no internet). When I reconnect the old router and then connect the new router, I get any internet connection through two routers (so the old dishes router the IP address that accepts the new router).

    I have configured the router N new for

    "Automatic configuration - DHCP", no need for connection, IP address dynamic, etc (as required by ISP - Timewarner)

    I tried to renewal and release IP address by the router N when it is connected directly to the main switch (the switch to connect to the cable modem). In so doing, shouldn't that assign a new IP address to the router?

    I am allowed 3 IPs from the cable company (because of the switch) and I use all three with three different internet IP cameras to each address for home security system.

    Any suggestions on why the router is not connecting to the internet? Do I need to reboot physically everything on the network, including the cable modem?

    If I understand your post, you said that your ISP gives you 3 Internet IP addresses and you have 3 cameras that use one of these Internet IP addresses.  If this is correct, then that leaves no IP Internet address for your WRT160N use - so that would explain why your WRT160N cannot get an Internet connection.

    If I misread your post, and you have an Internet IP address available for the WRT160N, you might have a problem with your modem and two WRT160N tries to use the same 192.168.1.x subnet.  To check this, follow these steps:

    (1) Please indicate addresses that use your cameras (IE before you take the test below).  If the addresses do not begin with 192.168, then erase the last half of each address.

    (2) Please indicate your ISP

    (3) Please indicate the make and exact model of your modem (not the WRT160N) number.

    (4) Please do the following test:

    Put your entire network.  Disconnect the switch (including cameras) to the modem.  Using an ethernet cable, connect your modem directly to your computer.  (Do not use the WRT160N for this test).  Turn on the modem and the computer.  Make sure you have an active Internet connection, then go ahead with what follows: (even if your Internet connection does not work, include this and move forward.)

    Go to 'Start' > all programs > Accessories > command prompt.
    A black DOS window will appear. Type "ipconfig/all" (with no quotes), and press the Enter key.   Copy all results in your next post.  To make the copy, highlight the results, and then use the keys copy (Ctrl-c) and paste (Ctrl-v) keys.  If your "IP address" does not begin with 192.168, then for security reasons, delete the latter half of your IP address.

  • 114 the desire does not connect to Asus all-in-one wireless but connects to the wireless network

    I just bought my HP ENVY 114 e all-in-one last week and I tried to connect it to my computer (Asus all-in-one Windows 7 64-bit) and while he wil connect to my wireless very well my computer (or my cell phone which is also an Asus running windows 7 64 - bits) cannot identify it.

    Using the disc doesn't help nor did try manually to add in 'Add printer' in my computer and all the interest to get this particular printer was because it was wireless. If I have to plug in a USB key then I have saved money and bought a less expensive model. All my devices are on the same network, and their firewalls is turned off so that it does not hinder the process.

    When you browse the drive Assembly he asks the IP and I get it exactly as it is on the screen printer that I even printed it out and double checked 5 times and it was exactly the same, but he keeps asking for me to be reintroduced to it since the computer cannot identify the printer.

    Any help would be great I prefer not to have to pack up this thing and take it back...

    Unfortunately, the router and the printer do not get along at this stage.  The IP address changes too often and it is possible that the router has its own firewall.  A large number of firewalls, outside the Windows Firewall, sees a lot of traffic from hpnetworkcommunicator.exe and blocks preventing the software to find the printer.

    I saw this model of router and it doesn't have a built-in firewall.  Unfortunately, I could not see their manual without you register on the site.

    It may be preferable to set a static IP address for the printer in the router's routing table.  To do this, you acceding to EWS the router.  If you don't know how to set the printer's IP address in the router, you can try to contact the vendor of the router.

    Otherwise, I would recommend checking the firewall of the router.  I saw a router cause problems with an overactive firewall in place.

    If you happen to have an extra router around, you can try to use it instead of Paul's to confirm that it is the router.


    You can try to put a static IP address on the front of the printer.  I'm personally not too successful with setting a static IP address on the front panel when the SAP does not load, but this could be one of those cases where it does not.

    First, print a Network Setup page by going to Configuration > Wireless > Network Configuration > print Network Configuration.

    Then, go to settings > network > IP settings > change to the manual.

    Once it is replaced by the manual, it should allow the IP address, default gateway and the subnet mask.  Use the subnet mask and default gateway of the print network configuration.  Use an IP address that is not in use on the network.  You can change the last number of the IP address on the print.  For example, could be converted to

    Setting a static IP address on the front panel does not set servers DNS which is necessary for ePrint operate on this printer.  Now that the static IP address has been set on the front panel of the printer, try to access the SAP by entering the IP address that comes to be defined in a browser address bar.  If the printer load, you should be able to set DNS servers and be ready to go from there.

  • Toshiba Equium L40 - 10U Wireless does not

    I recently updated my Toshiba Equium L40 - 10U to Service Pack 2 for Vista and now my wireless does not work. I tried to update my driver - but its already been updated, checked for updates - all installed, ensured this driver has been activated. Yet I still can't wireless to work, I don't know what to do now!

    I checked my network connections and my wan (PPPOE) miniport is disconnected when you try to connect it comes up with ERROR 815. Then I have to make sure that my internet connection options were correct - do not establish a connection and do not allow the proxy server and still get this message.
    My BIN is Realtek RTL8139/810 x Family Fast Ethernet NIC (do not know if this is useful or not) I tried to turn it off then try and turn it back on? But do not know if that would improve the situation or not.


    (1) do you have made no changes before this problem?
    (2) what is the exact error message / complete you receive?
    Method 1: Follow the steps in the following articles and check if they help.
    Step 1: Safe mode with networking 
    See the link below and check if the problem persists in safe mode with network.
    Step 2: If the problem does not persist in Mode safe mode with networking, I suggest you to put the computer in clean boot mode and check if it helps.
    Clean boot mode
    A clean boot to check if startup item or services to third-party application is causing this issue.
    Try to install the updates in clean boot mode, and check if the problem still persists.
    You can read the following article to configure the computer to boot:
    Note: After completing the troubleshooting steps, please refer to clean the start link to set up your computer to normal startup mode.
    Method 2: Follow the steps in the below items to Disable Antivirus and firewall and check if it helps.
    Step 2: Turn Windows Firewall on or off
    Important note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
    Note: You should not turn off Windows Firewall unless you have another firewall is enabled. Turning off Windows Firewall may make your computer (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage caused by worms or hackers.
    Method 3: Uninstall and reinstall the drivers
    You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers who can help you further.

  • Satellite L30: The sound does not work on XP Sp2

    Hi, sorry but I cannot well English.

    I have a problem. I do not have CD with drivers, but I download from the toshiba site.

    Yesterday, I reinstal windows, then I install all the drivers and I have a problem with the audio drivers.
    In Device Manager is all good, his system is activated, drivers of instalation, I have no problem. But sound does not work.

    You have any ideas?


    If the sound does not appear on your laptop, you must first check the volume control on the side of the laptop. Turn it up to the max level.
    Then check the sound devices and audio in the control panel if any controller is disabled or turned to the lower floor.

    Additional connect headphones and check if you can hear something.

    By the way: have you installed the correct drivers? On the Toshiba page, you will find two different sets of portable Satellite L30

  • A PC on the network does not connect to internet

    This has proved to be very difficult.  A PC on my network has been to connect to the internet.  I thought it was because I installed a new router, especially when I moved the PC to connect directly to my cable modem - when he was working.  But I also thought that upgrading to Windows 7 from WP would take away any problem on the PC - but it didn't.  Thus, with the help of an expert on a Linksys forum, I've implemented (to my satisfaction anyway) is not a router problem.  Indeed his inspection of ipconfig/all and stuff has shown that everything was normal with this PC as well as others.  The PC collects the IP address, etc., it is simply not receiving data from the internet.  I had already checked that it was not a firewall, using Norton Uninstaller issue to ensure that everything was gone.  The network adapter works and I've updated the driver.  I have since also rolled back to XP for doing the same thing and still nothing.

    The expert from my router comment was "well, the IP of the computer configuration is correct and the router works as you have other computers that connect to the internet via the router. It seems that if the installation of Windows has serious problems on this computer. I suggest that ask you in a Microsoft forum on how to reset the configuration of the network on your computer to make it work again. So far I would say that it is not a problem with the router or caused by the router. »

    The only thing I would add is that system restore has failed for a while on this PC.  Of course I would have used it to try to solve this problem, but I can't.  I tried various fixes for whom these for one, there included opening in SafeMode etc, but nothing worked.

    Help please!

    Hi, sorry bit slow on this - alert does not.  The answer would have been wired and Wireless does not, but I just reinstalled a Linksys network adapter and hey presto it works!  I haven't been back to try the wired LAN but guess it still does not.  So I think that the diagnosis of network card is OK but incorrectly excluded earlier because the PC said that he was OK and wireless did not work either at this time.  But I guess it's possible that uninstall and then reinstall the Linksys may have released something somehow.  BTW I had disabled the native Windows Firewall also.  Was it wrong?
