Hi there.

I recently bought a second hand laptop, the Toshiba tecra R850. Its a Cor i7-2640 @2.80Ghz, 8 GB Ram, AMD Radeon HD 7400M series. This laptop is a beauty, but theres just one problem. When I try to lan with my friends, I can't. I can see everyones computer from the networks, and I can run postal 2( only if I host) and one game of Dota, but other that that Its impossible. Now my laptop came with a LOT of bloatware from toshiba, could that be the problem? Now ive been doing a bit of reading up about the laptop and it says that my laptop has a WiFi a/g/n (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230). Which dosnt really ring a bell. I was thinking of reinstalling windows 7, But any help or advice could be greatly appreciated

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Reinstalling Windows with a fresh copy would certainly remove all of the bloat ware.

As for the network issue, see if a network driver reinstall helps.
