open device manager while connected to the net via cable, and update drivers for your device, try installing the vista driver..if that fails go to the wifi chip manufacturers site see if there is an update for win 7, or the toshiba site, you get everything you need.
if its not a driver issue, try uninstalling the device and then reinstalling while connected to the net, you may also have a F key combination to switch the card on and off, or a small switch on the front side of the machine..
can you see any wifi access points at all?


i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
