  1. Hi,

    I am looking at a Toshiba Satellite Pro L10 - 103. My friend has been given this from her sister but she cannot connect to here wireless network. I cannot connect it to mine so I did an IE8 check and got the 'error attempting to validate the winsock base providers: 2'. I have tried (unsuccesfully to fix the winsock error) using winsockxp fix.

    I am fairly good at getting round a PC/Laptop but this has me stumped. I would appreciate any help you might be able to give me. The best I get is 'limited or no conectivity'.

    I have added a HJT log as a starter....
