EEK!

My laptop computer has stopped connecting wirelessly to the internet. It recognizes my home network, and shows that it has a limited connectivity. It won't let me get on the internet unless I wire my computer to the modem. I have tried uninstalling my Norton, thinking that maybe it was a firewall issue, and it did not help. I have tried restoring my computer to a previous date when it was working fine, and of course when I called Toshiba, I found out that my warranty expired 5 days ago. I have no idea what to do next, if you could help at all I would greatly appreciate any ideas. Thank you for your time, and here are the details of my computer and modem.
I am located in the United States, and have a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5934 model# PSL C8U-03701Q laptop. My ISP is through AT&T, and I am not sure on my upstream/downstream speed of my connection. My modem is a gateway 2wire model number 3800HGV-B. I am currently connected by a wire, but I need to be wireless. My wireless network encryption is WPA - Personal, encryption type TKIP. I am using windows 7 on my computer, and I use google chrome as my internet browser. I ran the CMD that you asked for on a previous thread, and here are the results:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]

My System


First thing I would try is to update the wireless and audio drivers. I know it sounds strange to update audio drivers for a wireless problem, but there have been problems on Toshiba's that the audio driver caused the wireless to stop working, lol.

I would also see if you can connect to another wireless network, hotel's, coffee shops, even alot of fast food places offer free wi-fi these days. See if you can connect to them.

If these don't work, then unhook the wire so that the computer is only using the wireless connection. Then right click on the network icon that is near the clock, and select Troubleshoot Problems. Let that go through and try to repair the connection. This usually resets some of the Windows networking that can get corrupted.

ebbytom11...let me ask first...did your computer come with windows 7 installed or did you download, or did you do the install ?? Toshiba has known problems with the installation of Windows 7, and looses many drivers. Also, Toshiba likes the Linksy's, by Cisco, N Ultra Range Plus for wireless.

ebbytom11...let me ask first...did your computer come with windows 7 installed or did you download, or did you do the install ?? Toshiba has known problems with the installation of Windows 7, and looses many drivers.If you want to get back to the newnsee, do an "out-of-box"restoration with the factory cd that came with youe computer. If you are around to much metal, that will cause a problem as well. We live in an old warehouse, took me for ever to figure that one out !!! Also, Toshiba likes the Linksy's, by Cisco, N Ultra Range Plus for wireless. No that isn't a punch+ for Cisco...it's just the best.Make sure the wireless is enabled in the bios of your computer, then run a computer diognistin from the Start to All Programs to Utilities, then Diognostic Tools, or clikk the Dipgnostic Tools tab.Select the drivers you want to test by clicking the box to the left of the device. It will tell you if there is a driver provlem.I hope I said something to be helpful.

Are you sure you didn't disable the wireless by hitting the fn button and f8? It may be different buttons on your toshiba. The other thing that can disable it is a virus. I recomend checking to be sure you didn't disable it by hitting a button by accident. If that doesn't work then check for viruses with more than one antivirus software. I actually had a virus that did that to my wireless and it took a while to figure it out.
