    Hi! I live in a house from the 1800's and it's built out of solid stone, so the wifi doesnt go through the walls. I stretched an ethernet cord to my room and my Toshiba Satellite A665-S6050 will not connect with it. It doesn't even register that there is a cable plugged in. Can anyone help?

    Could be the ethernet cable is too long.

    Put your laptop next to the router and use a short ethernet cable to see if it works. If it does, it must be the cable length that's the problem.

    Check that the ethernet port is enabled both on the laptop and the router.

    Here is the support and driver downloads site for the Toshiba Satellite A665-S6050 laptop.

    You might want to add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

    You didn't advise if that laptop is running Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7, 32-bit or 64-bit.

    Are there any entries in the Device Manager that have a yellow ? or a yellow ! or a red X next to them?

    What's listed in the Network Adapters heading in the Device Manager?
