My toshiba tablet has been configured by my school. it was connecting to my wireless fine then it just stopped working it takes ages just sitting on acquiring network address. then just comes up with limited or no connectivity. but it works when i attach it to my netgear modem with and Ethernet cable. any suggestions?
You probably know this already, but... There is a small switch in the front edge panel, next to the head phone and mic plugs. This is a manual wireless cutoff. Make sure it's in the on position.
Flip it back and forth a few times ending in the on positon. There is also an orange led that should be lit (the one closest to the switch) when it's working.
If the led is lit, and still no connection, then you likely have have a problem with the antenna or the network module itself.
You could try downloading and reinstalling the software for the wireless module. Toshiba.com/support
The module is accessed from one of the panels in the bottom of the unit. The antenna is more difficult, mounted in back of the screen. Read More At : Portege M400 PPM40U01000E Tablet PC...
