Satellite L500-128 - slow connection to wireless network

I have a problem with my Toshiba Satellite L500-128.

After I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, my laptop is very very slow at startup. He hangs on to my wireless network connection or non - wireless (no matter whether I am connected to a cable). At this point, Windows has already started, but has not loaded al my applications yet. After 1.5 minutes or so when it is connected to my network (or has decided that he cannot connect because I'm not connected to a network), it continues and all is well.

I already installed the latest network drivers. I have a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and an Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN.

Is there anyone who has this problem and fixed it?



I had a similar problem on Windows XP... The problem is that I used my router DHCP service it takes up to 1 minute I could use the laptop. I searched a bit here in the forum and I tried to use static IP addresses instead of DHCP from my router service: the problem has been resolved! :)

Please try static IP addresses and update the firmware on your router!

  • Satellite Pro refuses to connect to wireless networks

    Hi guys! I need your help!

    My laptop Satellite Pro has suddenly decided to refuse to connect to wireless networks.
    all except my home router from the sky.

    I have moved since and am not able to connect to the free public Wi - Fi.
    No error message; Just click to connect to a particular network and nothing happens.

    I've been back home since and it connects automatically.
    I have Windows 8 and have not been able to find any trace of the Sky network to deselect etc.

    Any ideas?


    > I've been since back home and it connects automatically.
    This means that you can connect to your WiFi network at home without big problems?
    This indicates that s laptop WiFi connection works correctly.

    I put t know what Satellite Pro, you have exactly, but have you checked if you can update the WLan driver?

    What happens if you change the Wlan standard? (802.11 a / B / G or N)
    This can be changed in the Device Manager-> card WLan-> properties-> Advanced tab

  • Re: My Satellite L500-1XC can't find wireless networks

    My computer can not find wireless networks more and that's because drivers. I downloaded one I thought was mine from this page, but the download link is no longer active :(

    I am able to select Wireless as a connection, but he does not see anything and my wifi works entirely 100% so any help would be great guys :) Thank you

    I agree with Timox: you need WLan 802.11bgn Realtek RTL8191SE Wlan card driver.
    Download driver Toshiba WLan portal should functions since I managed to download the driver of the page package.

    Alternatively, you can download the driver directly from the Realtek page: [RTL8191SE-VA2 | 5 & Conn = 4 & DownTypeID = 3 & GetDown = false & downloads = EU tr]

  • Satellite L500-207 will not find wireless networks

    My laptop cannot identify wireless networks at all and I don't know how to fix it. Everything works fine and I'm aware wireless is turned on and anti-virus scans were clean.

    First of all, the problem occurred after I have reset default DNS for the DNS to google so I wonder if this is what caused the problem.

    I would be very happy any assistance that could be given in the resolution of this problem.

    > My laptop cannot identify wireless networks at all and I don't know how to fix it.

    Does that mean exactly? You can see your WLan or you see another WLan in the neighborhood?
    If you can't see any WLan then this means that the card wireless network is not correctly enabled in this case use FN + F8 to activate the WLan.

    In addition, check the settings of TCP/IP to the wireless network.
    In Protocol TCP/IP properties, you can find the settings as all these parameters must be set to automatically assign the IP address.

    Check if the wireless network adapter using the Draft N standard.
    You can choose this in Device Manager-> properties-> Advanced tab WLan card

    As far as I know that the WLan card is Intel 5100AGN.

  • Satellite P300 and Win7 - cannot see wireless networks


    I have Toshiba Satellite with Win7x64 and I bought on eBay an AR5008.

    If I boot Linux I can connect to wireless networks.
    However if I boot in win7 that I can't even see wireless networks. If I run diagnostics I get the radio is turned off.
    Even with ConfigFree I get the same message, even if the switch on the front of the laptop is on.

    What can I do? I tried all the drivers!


    Normally, you can enable or disable the WLAN connectivity by using the equipment and the FN + F8 key combination switch.
    Did you check that?

    I guess for the FN + F8 key combination you need value-added package. You can download it on the Toshiba site.

    Last but not least, works WLAN with preinstalled OS from Toshiba?

  • Is it possible to upgrade the processor on my Satellite L500-128?

    Thank you


    Hi Oscar

    In my opinion the SSDS are quite expensive in that time and I think that you shouldn't spend a lot of money for it now.
    I think that you should increase the RAM to the maximum level and make the right configuration of the OS and you should be satisfied with the performance.
    I don't know what you're doing with your laptop, but for every day activities, it will be enough.

  • Satellite L500-(128) & start a Linux Live USB Stick


    Can someone tell me if it is possible to boot from a USB stick (for example with Xubuntu 9.10 on it) on a new Satellite L500 (-128)?

    She has the necessary options USB - HDD it in the BIOS for this?

    The owners of any Satellite L500 there able to give accurate information? would be appreciated. I could do with the knowledge before you buy one.

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, the L500 can boot from USB Flash Drives. I believe that all 2008-2009 Toshiba laptops can boot from USB :)

  • Re: Satellite L500-128 - how to restore factory settings?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L500-128. A couple of months, I installed the upgrade to windows 7. Now, I want to clean my computer laptop everything. I want to restore the factory settings, but I have no idea how to do that. Does anyone has an idea how to solve this problem?

    Thank you


    What do you want exactly?

    Normally it is easy to restore the factory settings. You need only the Toshiba Recovery disk you created, I think. Therefore, enter the disk and start it. The Setup menu will be loaded and you can follow the instructions on the screen. Factory settings will be restored with all the drivers and tools.

    Also, don't forget to backup your data. Everything on the HARD drive will be erased.

  • Unable to connect to wireless networking

    My Toshiba laptop has been pre-installed with Windows 7 Home premium 64 - bit OS and it worked quite well with the BB wireless. However, the wireless internet was on and turned off in recent weeks, while other mobile devices, such as iphone, ipad, or laptop, in my household had no such problem. The wireless signal was so strong, but the error message always says "unable to connect to wireless networking. It seemed that there was something wrong with the wireless adapter.

    I got a new adapter properly installed TP-Link wireless. Fortunately, it worked; but unfortunately, it worked for less than 24 hours. It was really frustrating that I, like student full time, depended so much on the wireless network card.

    Help, please! Harry


    You can enlighten us with:

    -What model do you use (eg..) L300-123)
    -What version of BIOS is installed?
    -WLAN driver do you use?

    All these questions are answered in PC Diagnostics are under Toshiba app folder in the start menu.



  • Can I connect to wireless networks far away?

    How to connect to wireless networks more away?

    Is there any way I can improve my reach wireless laptops so I can connect to wireless networks more away?


    You can only connect to wireless networks that recognizes the laptop. If the laptop recognizes a wireless network, you can connect to them. If he doesn t recognize (because it is further away) you can't connect.

    In addition, you cannot improve the scope of the laptop wireless. You can do it on a WIFI router, and not on the laptop.

  • Problem with keyboard on Satellite L500-128

    Hi all

    I'm having some problems with the keyboard on my Satellite L500-128 - essentially; 8, 9, i, o, k, l and comma and period keys do not work.

    All other keys are working perfectly fine (I use an external keyboard if people wonder!)

    I'm technically minded but I was wondering if its worth disassemble the laptop and have one eye or if someone has had this problem with this laptop before - or if someone has any ideas with what he could fix.

    I tried to do a reset of the laptop (battery and pressing power button) I reinstalled the operating system, but the keyboard still has problems in the BIOS too.


    In my opinion and as suggested by Liam, it looks like a simple keyboard malfunction and to solve this problem, the keyboard needs to be replaced.

    The Toshiba service in your country partner could replace the defective
    Otherwise, you could try to replace it yourself, but if you are a beginner and if you have no experience, ask a support technician.
