Re: Windows Vista Downgrade to windows XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite L505-S6946

Downgrading to Windows XP, doesn't make sense with the up and coming release of Windows 7. If you have any problem with the current version of the windows vista, then you can also install windows 7 onto this laptop system. But anyway, first of all you need to test that should this laptop work well to wifi facility turn on and off very well or not. If it gives any problem, I think there should be necessary to perform the specific process onto it. try to first check this problem.

Re: Windows Vista Downgrade to windows XP Pro on Toshiba Satellite L505-S6946

For solving the wifi connectivity problem, you need to test the configuration of the router first. I think the router is not configured properly and hence it is getting stuck. This will be necessary to fix your complicated problem. Hence try this and check what result arrives onto your laptop system. Toshiba satellite laptop only supports WPA encryption and not WPE 128 encryption. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a weak security algorithm for IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. This will be work on Toshiba laptop. Hence you need to also check this setting onto your laptop system. This will be necessary for fixing the wifi problem.

With the battery and AC adapter removed, close the Power switch for half-a-minute. This process will be work to reset all the setting of the bios in default state. Then use this simple process and check that it gives some positive impact on your laptop system or not. Soft reset also helps to do this same type reset setting task. Hence you can use this facility and check what result arrives on your laptop system.
