I have been trying to connect to the internet on a Toshiba M45-S331 Satelitte Laptop that will bring the internet up but will not connect even though the all the icons say that we are connected. After looking further, I found the the firewall was blocking their internet but even after that it still would not connect. This computer has not been used for a long time and needs some updates, but after I updated the driver for the ethernet to try that get connected through it, the IP address would not update. Now I'm not sure what to do about that. I have tried to do a virus scan and all the other options to clean the computer up and check it, but it has an outdated Norton program on it and I can't do anything with the program until I can get online to delete the Norton program since the other programs won't run with the Norton program active. So how can I get a new IP address for this computer to be able to get it connected to the internet??? or what can I do to get it new drivers and get it running to get these files updated?
