Toshiba Satellite 2400 Slow to Find Network
Posted on 2004-11-01
I have a somewhat annoying problem with my Toshiba Satellite 2400 laptop running Windows XP sp2. It often has trouble finding a network when I first boot up. Especially if I've been on another network that day, i.e. if I've traveling between client sites. I have to re-boot 3-4 times to get it to find a network and automatically assign an ip address. Is there a way to troubleshoot this? I've tried messing around with ipconfig in the command prompt but that doesn't seem to let me do much.
Btw, when I first boot up my IP is 0.0.0.0 which of course doesn't work. Then it gets 126.96.36.199 or something, but I still can't connect. Finally, after 3-4 reboots it gives me an ip address I can work with.
Any help would be appreciated!
