Cannot access wireless w/ my Toshiba Laptop-it is a Satellite L305 purchased 2 years ago. I am staying with some friends for the summer in a rural area-they no longer have Internet service ( Comcast modem is still in basement--are NOT going to reactivate service). The closest WiFi spot is a mile walk away ( Library at a State College). Every day all I get is frustrated as I try and try to access any wireless networks--Linksys is what keeps coming up--but says I am too far away from access point. The "local computer whiz" told me to purchase a Wireless Card-which I will gladly do IF it will enable me to access wireless networks from home. PLEASE HELP Any suggestions at to what, if anything, I can do or purchase to enable me to access wireless from my "rural home"?? THank you !
Thanks so much for taking the time to send in a response--the help is much appreciated. I also called Toshiba--they told me to buy ( but cant from them!!) a Belkin Wireless Adapter Card Part # F5D8073. I could not locate it at any retial stores, but did see it on Amazon.com--who I have never ordered with. Any advice at all from anyone with experience on this Belkin adapter or ordering from Amazon.com?? Once again, I thank you for taking the time to send in a helpful response.
