My Toshiba laptop was able to connect to wireless routers in the past and now it is unable to connect to any wireless routers. I have Belkin Router and my laptop informs me that the connectivity is limited, likewise at my girlfriend's house and when I try to open the web browser i get an "address not found" message.
I was able to connect to both of these wireless connections in the past without any problems and now I can't.

Please help.:(

can you look in device manager
on XP
Start
control panel
system
hardware tab
device manager

whats listed under netwrok adapters
any ! ? or X
-----------
Theres also a switch for toshiba laptops wireless at the front - is this on
----------
check the firewall is not bloking, easiest is to switch it off
----------
post an ipconfig /all - as you cannot connect - you may have to use 2nd method and copy the file to the PC that works on internet - u

ipconfig /all

TWO Methods to do that - some people have problems with ONE----

ONE ---------------------------------
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

TWO -----------------------------------------------

Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

You're connected to a network, how about expanding that to do some pings.

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I have a Belkin Router and my Network and sharing center report that everything is working fine and i have internet connections (wired and wireless) I can open up a web browser too.

Now as soon as I unplug all the connections are lost.

Secondly other laptops cannot see the wireless connection on their devices.

I'm not sure what is wrong.

Please help
