I've just got a new Toshiba Portege m200 laptop to replace my old Portege3500.
With my old lappie, I connected to 3 different wireless networks at work and at home. I have a problem with the new lappie in that it connected to one of the networks straight out of the box (after typing the WEP key) but it won't connect to the other 2.
The main difference that I can see is that the new lappie has an 802.11g wifi card whereas the old lappie was 802.11b. The connection that is working is to a new 802.11g integrated wireless/router/modem.
The other two wireless connections are via wireless access points. One connects to broadband via a router/modem and the other via a pc with internet connection sharing enabled. Both of these connections work with the old lappie. At least one of the connections works if I connect via a wired conection.
The lappie appears to connect to the other 2 networks - it says that it's connected to network xxx and that the signal strength is very good but I get a page not found message when i try to access websites with Firefox. I've checked that the mac address is enabled and that the wep keys are correctly entered so it's not a problem there.
I have an alternative setup entered on the tcp/ip properties for the wireless card using ip addy 192.168.0.34 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway is blank preferred dns server 126.96.36.199 and alternate dns server188.8.131.52 Preferred and alternate wins servers are blank. I believe these dns addys are BT dns servers.
I think I have all properties for the new wireless connection the same as for the old one.
It is very frustrating carrying round 2 lappies, can anyone help me to solve this problem please.
