Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Why wont our new net book connect up with our BT home hub? Steve and Anna.


Answers :

Hi!
I'm assuming "BT" means "Bluetooth".

Bluetooth only has a range of about 10 meters or 30 feet. If you're trying to use your netbook at a distance greater than that, you won't have much luck. The signal can also be spotty. That's OK for a conversation over a headset, but pretty rotten when you're trying to print a document.

If you need distances of greater than 30 feet, or a more stable connection, you'll want to look into a wireless (wi-fi) solution.

Hope that helped! Remember to rate the solutions!

Comp will not connect to internet and tells us there is a cable not connected. It is wireless and the modem is working with all other comps in house. I have checked the modem, switched it off and restarted, I have removed the battery and all power from the comp. When I try to connect it does not recognise the BT home hub and tells me a cable is not attached. I have checked the wireless switch is on. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
