Hello, on my Toshiba laptop with Windows XP Home Edition SP3, I am not able to connect to my wireless connection. It is using the built in Toshiba Wireless LAN Card. It shows limited or no connectivity and when I try to repair, it says ip address cannot be renewed. I just tried to uninstall, shutdown computer, and reinstall the device, but I get the same problem. What should I do? I'm writing this from my desktop computer with a wireless adapter. Both are set to connect to the same router.

Hey Johny,

Do you have wireless security/encryption setup (i.e. WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc)? If so, the most common cause for the issue you are describing is if you mistype the encryption keycode/passphrase. Try removing your wireless profile and attempt to connect again, being very careful when you enter the passphrase; are you able to connect?

If you still cannot, login to your router's web interface and ensure that you do not have MAC Filtering enabled; if you do, please disable it and see if the issue persists.

We probably should, but no the connection has no security set up on it

Where do I check if I have MAC Filtering Enabled. I'm on the web interface for the router (NETGEAR), but the only thing I can find involving MAC, is the MAC address

What's the model number of your Netgear router? MAC Filtering is usually under a security subsection, sometimes Wireless security.

But the problem shouldn't be with the router, right? Because there are two other computers in my house that are connecting wireless to that same router including this one I'm using to write this. both of them are working fine. The laptop is the only one not connecting

MAC Filtering would still fit, but you do make a good point. Please do this on your laptop (you'll need some form of removable media, such as a USB chip, in order to post the file).

Step 1 - Connectivity test:
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, please type the following commands (*Note: each ping will take approximately 10 seconds to complete; wait for the command prompt to return before you type the next one. Also, the single '>' and double '>>' are intentional; please type the commands exactly as they appear):
    • ipconfig /all > C:\results.txt
    • route print >> C:\results.txt
    • ping 127.0.0.1 >> C:\results.txt
    • ping google.com >> C:\results.txt
    • ping 209.85.171.100 >> C:\results.txt
  • Once the above commands have completed, navigate to your C: drive and open the text file results.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
While you're doing that I'll have a look around for some info on that router.

The laptop is running Windows XP, correct? Please uninstall IPv6:
  • Click Start, select Run, type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, type netsh int ipv6 uninstall
  • Restart your computer and then see if you can connect to the network.
Also, look for "Wireless Access List"; that appears to be the MAC Filtering section for your router.
