I just bought a new laptop, a Toshiba Sattileite, and it comes with a wireless card in it. I can't, however, figure out how to connect it to the internet, because it says there is no wireless connection avaliable. So I tried plugging it in and it still says there's no connection, and I am at a loss as to what to do to get online.
I tried connecting manually, since the automatic didn't seem to want to work, but It asked for a lot of information, about IP address, and serial numbers that I don't know waht they are or how to find out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
If your modem/router isn't a wireless model then you won't have much luck connecting that way.
Connecting an ethernet cable to the LAN port should work though. Are you certain that you've plugged the right type of cable into the correct port? (Don't confuse the modem port with the LAN port)
Just select assign automatic IP option
