I just acquired a Toshiba Encore and I have been experiencing limited connection, after running troubleshotting it stated that the "Wifi doesn't have a valid IP configuration". I noticed that on my laptop I'm using the 802.1X authentification while there the default security type is "No authentification (open)". However if I switch it to 802.1X I can no longer input the network security key.

Nothing? By the way, manually assigning IPv4 address/subnet mask/default gateway and DNS server doesn't work.

How old is the laptop? I've seen some old network cards/devices not work because they cannot understand the newer security. Did you try in auto dhcp?
