Hello. I just recently bought a new Toshiba Satellite S55-B5266 which is a much needed upgrade from my basic Dell Inspiron 3521. However, I'm having network connectivity problems right out of the gate with the Toshiba.
Here is a picture of the issue I'm having...
If you can see, I put my two laptops side by side with their available network connections. My Dell is on the left, which is connected to my router with no issues and also shows all of the available networks in range. The Toshiba can't estabish any connections even though I have toggled wifi on.
However, the Toshiba seems to find a small selection of nearby connections at random, and at a very low signal. My router doesn't appear on this list even though it continues to work fine on my Dell right next to it. Here is an image of this instance-
Obviously, I've gone through the usual protocol with reseting my router and every time my Dell reconnects without a hitch and the Toshiba fails to connect or even recognize. Considering that all of the networks in range consistently show up on my Dell but not the new Toshiba, I figured something must be up with the Toshiba's network adapter settings? I'm not incredibly savvy with troubleshooting this besides the confirmation I got that the driver is up to date and functioning properly. So I'm at a loss. Any help is greatly appreciated!
