Common networking issues
Cabled networking is useful in homes and offices where wireless might not work because of interference from walls and various other obstacles. Most models of Toshiba computers have built-in Ethernet ports equipped to go as soon as they are plugged into the network. But you could encounter trouble even with the most stable network installation. Before you spend money calling a Toshiba tech-support center, you could try a few things to fix your networking problems.
Ensure that the connections are proper
First thing to do is to make sure that the connection is live. In a typical setup, one end of the Ethernet cable would be plugged into a router, hub, switch or broadband modem and the other would be plugged into your computer. Nearly all Toshiba models have connection and activity signal lights next to the Ethernet port and both of these lights should be on. The connection light should be stable, while the activity light should blink. Also, there would be a connection light on the router or modem. Make certain that both ends of the cable are plugged firmly into the Ethernet sockets.
If you have a wireless connection, you should try to turn it off. The computer might be trying to use the wireless connection rather than the Ethernet port. Almost all Toshiba laptops have a switch to toggle the wireless antenna on and off. You should also note that, if the Ethernet cable is plugged in firmly but you don't see lights, swap it out for another cable.
