Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A25-S307 Notebook ?

Won't refresh IP address?

\015 I live on a university campus and my computer won't connect to the internet.\015\012\015\012I can use wireless where I get a signal, but when I try to use the wired local area connection, I receive an error message saying "limited or no connectivity."\015\012\015\012The morons in the tech support office told me that I need a new network card, which may be the case, but I have never had trouble connecting to the internet before.\015\012\015\012When I right click on the connection in "Network Connections" and select "repair" it tells me it is not able to refresh the IP address.\015\012\015\012Why does wireless work but not wired?\015\012\015\012Can anyone make any suggestions other than replacing the network card?\015

Clicking repair normally sets incorrect ip addreses to your router requirements.\015\012\015\012Firstly, dissable your wireless connection, as your pc will still be trying to connect to the router, then try connecting again, your router should automatically assign an IP address to your pc.\015\012\015\012If that fails get into your routers settings (eg type in something similair to 192.168.x.x) x's being the numbers required for your router(see your manual); and have a look at the ip addresses that the router assigns to your pc's, probably on the 192.154.x.x region and write them down if neccassary.\015\012\015\012Then open up your wired cards properties(control panel- network connections- local area connection icon) and click on 'internet protocol tcp/ip', then properties and then click use the following IP address and type in the same numbers as your router range except for the last figure as this must not be same.\015\012\015\012You must also make sure the Subnet Mask numbers are the same as this is the route your connection follows to the router.\015\012\015\012Sorry it's a bit long winded but theres no shorter way round it.
