I had to format the harddrive on my laptop earlier this week. Wireless connection worked up until i started the formatting. After i did that and reinstalled most of my stuff, I couldn't connect to the web anymore. Called my ISP TWICE and they couldn't help me (though I'm not surprized...). Connecting with a cable still works fine, but as soon as i try working with the wireless I keep getting 'Server not found' (or something along those lines). The PC apparently connects (because i can search and find my router), but i can't go on the internet (i can't even access my routher from within Mozilla or IE). Drivers are up to date, downloaded the latest ones from Toshiba's site and installed.

If you have the wireless protected make sure you entered the security Code.
It sounds like you connected to the wireless but didn't enter the code.

Wait, no that was the reason. I had entered the wrong code (I used 'O' instead of zero) and for some reason it still accepted it. Fixed now, thanks!

It accepts it and gives you a link.
However the link won't allow any data communication.

Good to know it's fixed :)
