Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook ?

My Toshiba A205 laptop has wifi problems. I am getting great signal from my router(netgear) but When I am online with my laptop it stops working. Then after a few minutes it works again for mabe 1-2 minutes. Then it stops again. It works perfectly when I plug it straight with the chord. My internet router is left unsecure.


Answers :

This is a problem of speed and signal ..try to change the channel in the router ...there are 12 of them ...try to use one somewhere in the middle..maybe this frequency is not receipted so well by your laptop..and if it works...even with intermittent signal...this is not a wi fi issue...if it was it should not work at all..but just a traffic one ...the answer packets are not received in real time ..and it is practically stop communicating .
so ..go to settings ...change the channel a fe wtime ...and if it is still the same ..try another laptop ...to see if it does the same ...if does,,than is the router ..maybe you didnt set it right ..or even if the signal is high..this is just the radio signal that the 2 of them communicate ...but the actual speed of the internet is down on the wireless .
did you followed me ??the signal shown in the we fi panel...is the strength of the radio transmitting ... and not the actual speed of the net ..Im underlineing this cause the symptoms you described..are just an issue of communication speed.. so ..maybe this router is not capable of more..in the we fi Also ...securing will be a good thing ..cause it will prevent to split the signal with others that will locate your free network and use it ..
