a loss of signal after establishing contact, could indicate other environmental issues. Does the access point have any filtering set up?
10 months should be warrantible from Toshiba.
I want to preface this with an apology because I don't know much about computers and about wireless internet devices. For the past 10 months, I have had a Toshiba Satellite A75-S206, and almost from day one the internal wireless card has not worked. It's weird, when I turn on the computer, a message pops up that says that wireless networks are detected. However, the wireless internet never connects to the networks.
At first it didn't bother me because I just used a lan line. But over time it started to get on my nerves. At one point I even called the Toshiba people and, after one hour of trying to explain the situation, was told that I had to reinstall it. Since then the only way I can get the wireless to work is to delete it and reinstall it. I took it to BestBuy and they were of absolutely no help.
Please, help me! I'm heading off to grad school this fall, where the facilities offer wireless internet, and I would really like to see if there is a way to restore this feature so that it comes up on a consistent basis (like, the way it's supposed to!). Otherwise I would have to install an external wireless card, and the thought of that irks me - I already have an internal one that should be working! Can someone please provide some suggestions as to what I can do???
Thank you so much for your help, and I'm sorry for such a long message!
