Tips to resolve wireless connection in Toshiba mini NB300 notebook
To start with, weak signals and frequent disconnections may rise because of signal attenuation where the distance between the laptop and access points is more than the recommended one. Check that you are within the recommended radius. A transceiver device enables wireless signals generated and received by the PC. A noisy environment, i.e. where electromagnetic emissions are common, especially where use of cell phones and other radio wave transmission devices may affect signal transmission. Keep cell phones and other electromagnetic emission devices away from the PC. Unable to connect problem can rise due to incompatible protocols used in the hotspot and the ones configured in the PC. Change the Wi-Fi settings from automatic to manual thus enabling you to set the right protocols to use. Moreover, check that the wireless access point devices are on. Finally yet importantly, update the wireless card device drivers to provide the compatibility with the operating system software and connectivity devices.
Certain steps by the user can prevent frequent wireless problems experienced when attempting to connect to a hot spot. These include checking that the protocol settings match and updating the device drivers now and again.
