Wired & wireless network connection problemsLocked
I am currently working on a Toshiba 3000-S353 laptop that has been upgraded to Windows XP. It has a Linksys wireless card and connects to a Linksys router. When using the wireless card it keeps saying limited or no connectivity even though the connection shows a 100% signal. If you change the settings to a specific IP address you can make the connection and get to the internet OK. Explaining this process to the owner and advising him he will have to change the address everytime he connects to a new a network at a hotel, etc. will be a problem for the computer user. Why won’t this obtain it’s own address and hook up? If you plug into the wired port it just says it is obtaining IP address and never connects until you set up an IP address manually then it will connect. I have downloaded the latest drivers for the nic from Toshiba and it still won’t work. Any suggestions?
