Wireless LAN and Your Health

Wireless LAN products, like other radio devices, emit radio frequency electromagnetic energy. The level of energy emitted by Wireless LAN devices however is far much less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless devices like for example mobile phones.

Because Wireless LAN products operate within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, Toshiba believes Wireless LAN is safe for use by consumers. These standards and recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community and result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists who continually review and interpret the extensive research literature.

In some situations or environments, the use of Wireless LAN may be restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible representatives of the organization. These situations may for example include:

Using the Wireless LAN equipment on board airplanes, or

In any other environment where the risk of interference to other devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful.

If you are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices in a specific organization or environment (e.g. airports), you are encouraged to ask for authorization to use the Wireless LAN device prior to turning on the equipment.

Exposure to Radio Frequency Radiation

The radiated output power of the Toshiba Wireless LAN Card is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits.

Nevertheless, the Toshiba Wireless LAN Card shall be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized. The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

5.375 x 8.375 ver 2.3

Specific Absorption Rate (IEEE)

Your device is designed to be in compliance with Radio Waves exposure regulations and does not exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves

(radio frequency electromagnetic fields) in accordance with the Federal

Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry Canada (IC). A substantial safety margin is set to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of health.

A unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption rate, or SAR is utilized for the radio wave exposure guidelines. The SAR measurement for devices does not exceed 1.6W/kg.

The actual SAR values for your device, while in use, are normally well below the stated values. The operating power of your device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the wireless connection to increase system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network. The lower the power output of the device the lower its

SAR value.

As stated by the World Health Organization, present scientific information indicates no special precautions are needed for the use of this device. To further reduce any exposure, limit your usage.

Turn Wi-Fi

®

, Bluetooth

®

, and Wireless WAN

Functionalities off for Cardiac Pacemakers

Turn Wi-Fi ® , Bluetooth ® , and Wireless WAN functionality off when you are near a person who may have a cardiac pacemaker implant or other medical electric device. Radio waves may affect pacemaker or medical device operation, possibly resulting in serious injury. Follow the instructions of your medical device when using any Wi-Fi ® or Bluetooth ® or Wireless WAN functionally.

Label the backup copies clearly and store them in a safe place.

As you work with data it exists in the device’s memory.

This memory is called “volatile memory” because it is only active while the device is turned on. When you turn off the device, all the data remaining in volatile memory is lost. To help avoid data loss, save your work to

Internal Storage or network storage. Your work (data) will remain in internal storage to be called up when you need it. As long as the internal storage remains healthy, your data is relatively safe. However on occasion, hardware failures do happen. If you experience a hardware failure, your data could be lost. As an extra step to help avoid data loss, back up your data. See

“Backing up your data” on page 42 for more information.

❖ Scan all new files for viruses.

This precaution is especially important for files you receive via external media, email, or download from the

Internet.

Toshiba’s online resources

Turning off the device

Turning off the device

It is a good idea to turn off your device when you are not using it for a while.

If you are using the device for the first time, leave the device plugged into a power source (even though the device is off) to fully charge the battery.

Options for turning off the device

You have two options available for turning off the device:

Shut down and Sleep mode. Each option has its advantages.

❖ Use Shut down if you will not be using the device for several days or if you must turn off your device.

TECHNICAL NOTE: Before using the Shut down option to turn off your device, backup your data.

If you change your mind and decide to continue working after all, wait a few seconds before turning the device on again.

NOTE If you do not intend to use your device for a long period of time, turn off the device, disconnect the power plug from the plug socket, and store your device in a dry dust-free location.

Letting the screen time-out or enter into Sleep mode allows the device to conserve power. When turning on the device again, the system automatically returns to the last screen viewed.

To change the screen time-out setting, see “Display settings” on page 71 .

Getting Started

Turning off the device

57

Using Shut down mode

The Shut down mode completely shuts down the device without saving your data or the current state of the device.

Shut down mode closes all open apps, shuts down the operating system, and then turns off your tablet.

Always back up your data and settings before shutting down your tablet.

To turn off your device using Shut down mode:

1 Press and hold the Power button.

A pop-up screen appears, displaying three selections.

(Sample Image) Shut down pop-up screen

2 In the pop-up window, touch Power off .

A pop-up screen appears, asking you to confirm the shut down.

(Sample Image) Shut down pop-up confirmation screen

3 In the pop-up window, touch OK to completely shut down the tablet.

The operating system shuts down and the tablet turns off.

4 Touch Cancel to abort the shut down process.

58 Getting Started

Managing your accounts

Using Sleep mode

Your device will automatically time-out after a couple minutes of non-operation, placing it into Sleep mode.

The screen dims and then darkens to conserve battery power. For more information on waking the tablet from Sleep

mode, see “Waking the tablet” on page 40

. To change the amount of time it takes for the display to darken, touch the

Settings ( ) icon, and then the Display ( ) icon.

NOTE Increase battery life between charges by using the

shortest available time-out setting. See “Display settings” on page 71

.

You can also place your tablet into Sleep mode by pressing the Power button quickly.

Factors to consider when choosing Sleep mode:

While in Sleep mode, the device uses some battery power.

❖ Because the state of the system is stored in memory, you will lose data if the battery discharges completely while the device is in Sleep mode.

❖ Waking your device from Sleep mode takes less time and consumes less battery power than restarting after shutting down the device.

❖ When starting up again, the device returns to the screen last viewed.

If you place the device in Sleep mode and the battery discharges fully, your unsaved data will be lost. Be sure to backup your data first.

If Something Goes

Wrong

Some problems you may encounter when using your tablet are relatively easy to identify and solve.

This chapter aims to help you solve many problems by yourself. It covers the problems you are most likely to encounter.

If all else fails, contact Toshiba. You will find information on

Toshiba’s support services at the end of this chapter.

Problems when you turn on the device

These problems may occur when you turn on the power.

The device will not start.

Make sure you attached the AC adaptor properly.

If you are using the AC adaptor, check that the wall outlet is working by plugging in another device, such as a lamp.

Verify that the device is on by looking at the ON/OFF indicator. If the indicator is glowing, the device is on. Also, try turning the device off and then on.

The device starts but when you touch an icon nothing happens.

Your device may have an application or resource conflict. Try shutting down and restarting.

118

If Something Goes Wrong

The operating system is not working

119

The operating system is not working

Once you are familiar with the Home screens and used to the way the operating system responds, you can easily detect if the it is not working correctly. For example:

❖ The operating system responds differently from the normal routine

❖ Screens and apps take a long time to load

The screen does not look right

Unless a hardware device has failed, problems usually occur when you change the system in some way such as installing a new app or adding an external device.

Most issues are solved by “recycling the system’ turning it off then back on. If this does not resolve the issue, try uninstalling the most recently installed application or disconnecting the most recently installed accessory. If this still does not resolve the issue, use the About tablet setting to check for available system updates. For more information, see

“About tablet”“About tablet” on page 83 .

Power and the batteries

Power and the batteries

Your device receives its power through the AC adaptor or from the system battery. Power problems are interrelated.

For example, a faulty AC adaptor will neither power the device nor recharge the batteries.

Here are some typical problems and how to solve them:

The AC adaptor works correctly, but the battery will not charge.

The battery does not charge while the device is consuming full power. Try turning off the device.

The battery may be too hot or too cold to charge properly. If you think this is the probable cause, let the battery reach room temperature and try again.

The device does not power on.

Let the battery discharge completely, then try charging it again.

Check the power options. For more information, see

“Optimizing battery life” on page 29 . Is your software using

the internal storage drive more? Is the display power set to turn off automatically? Was the battery fully charged to begin with? All these conditions affect how long the charge lasts.

If the device still does not power on, contact your service provider immediately.

After a period of time, the battery will lose its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced.

This is normal for all batteries.

For more information on maintaining battery power, see

“Charging the battery” on page 28

.

Display problems

Here are some typical display problems and their solutions:

The screen does not look correct.

You can change the display settings by touching the

Settings ( ) icon on the Home screen. For more

information, see “Display settings” on page 71 .

If Something Goes Wrong

Sound system problems

121

Small bright dots appear on your screen when you turn on your device.

Small bright dots may appear on your screen display when you turn on your device. Your display contains an extremely large number of thin-film transistors (TFT) and is manufactured using high-precision technology. Any small bright dots that may appear on your display are an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT manufacturing technology.

The screen does not appear as bright as it used to be

Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the device, the brightness of the screen will deteriorate. This is also an intrinsic characteristic of the screen technology.

When the device is operated on battery power, the screen will dim and you may not be able to increase the brightness of the screen while on battery power.

Sound system problems

The sound settings can be configured to your desired user preferences. For more information, see

“Sound settings” on page 70 .

No sound is coming from the device’s speakers.

Adjust the volume control.

If you are using external headphones, speakers, or a headset, check that they are securely connected to your device.

Wireless networking problems

NOTE This section provides general troubleshooting tips for networking problems, specifically wireless (Wi-Fi ® ) networking.

The terms and concepts used assume a basic understanding of networks, and may be for more advanced users. If you need assistance or if you are not familiar with the terminology, please contact Toshiba.

❖ Your device is equipped with an internal Wi-Fi ® adapter.

Verify that your Wireless connection is enabled. For more

information, see “Setting up Wi-Fi ® and Bluetooth ® connections” on page 41

.

122 If Something Goes Wrong

If you need further assistance

❖ Verify that your device can detect access points or routers. If it can detect a Wi-Fi ® access point or router then it may be a configuration issue.

❖ Verify that the signal strength is good.

❖ If another device is on the same network, verify that it has network access, and can connect to the Internet. If, for example, the other device cannot browse to a public

Web site, the ISP’s (Internet Service Provider) service may be disrupted.

❖ Verify that the Service Set Identifier (SSID), or network name, is correct

- i.e., that it matches the SSID assigned to the access point you are attempting to connect through. SSIDs are case-sensitive.

❖ If you have enabled any security provisions (closed system, MAC address filtering, Wired Equivalent Privacy

[WEP], etc.), check the access point vendor's Web site for recent firmware upgrades. Problems with WEP keys, in particular, are frequently addressed in new firmware releases.

If you need further assistance

If you have followed the recommendations in this chapter and are still having problems, you may need additional technical assistance. This section contains the steps to take to ask for help.

Before you contact Toshiba

Since some problems may be related to the operating system or the program you are using, it is important to investigate other sources of assistance first.

Try the following before you contact Toshiba:

Review the troubleshooting information.

❖ If the problem occurs while you are running a program, consult the program’s documentation for troubleshooting suggestions. Contact the software company’s technical support group for their assistance.

❖ Consult the dealer from whom you purchased your device and/or program. Your dealer is your best source for current information.

Terms

The following terms may appear in this User’s Guide.

A active-matrix display —A liquid crystal display (LCD) made from an array of liquid crystal cells using active-matrix technology. Also known as a “TFT display,” in its simplest form there is one thin film transistor (TFT) for each cell. This type of display works well with tablet devices because of its shallow depth and high-quality color. Active-matrix displays are viewable from wider angles than most passive-matrix displays.

128 Glossary adapter —A device that provides a compatible connection between two units. For example, the tablet’s internal display adapter receives information from the software and translates it into images on the screen. An adapter can take a number of forms, from a microprocessor to a simple connector. An intelligent adapter (one that is capable of doing some processing) may also be called a controller.

Alternating Current (AC) —The type of power usually supplied to residential and commercial wall outlets. AC reverses its direction at regular intervals. Compare Direct Current (DC).

application —A set of instructions that can be executed by a tablet.

App shortcut —An application icon that can be placed on a

Home screen. Touching one opens the app without having to first open the Apps screen. See also icon .

B backup —A copy of a file, usually on a removable disk, kept in case the original file is lost or damaged.

baud rate —The speed at which a communication device, such as a printer or modem, transmits information. Baud rate is the number of signal changes per second (not necessarily the same as bits per second). See also bits per second .

bits per second (bps) —A way of measuring the speed at which information is passed between two devices. This is the basic unit of measure used in modem communications, and is similar, but not identical, to the baud rate. See also baud rate .

Wireless Interoperability

The Toshiba Wireless LAN Card products are designed to be interoperable with any wireless LAN product that is based on Direct

Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) radio technology, and is compliant to:

The IEEE 802.11 Standard on Wireless LANs (Revision A/B/G), as defined and approved by the Institute of Electrical and

Electronics Engineers.

The Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi ® ) certification as defined by the

Wi-Fi Alliance. The “Wi-Fi CERTIFIED” logo is a certification mark of the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Bluetooth ® and Wireless LAN devices operate within the same radio frequency range and may interfere with one another. If you use Bluetooth ® and Wireless LAN devices simultaneously, you may occasionally experience a less than optimal network performance or even lose your network connection.

If you should experience any such problem, immediately turn off your Bluetooth ® or Wireless LAN device.

Please contact Toshiba product support on Web site http://www.toshiba-europe.com/computers/tnt/bluetooth.htm in Europe or tabletsupport.toshiba.com in the United States for more information.

Wireless LAN and Your Health

Wireless LAN products, like other radio devices, emit radio frequency electromagnetic energy. The level of energy emitted by Wireless LAN devices however is far much less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless devices like for example mobile phones.

Because Wireless LAN products operate within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, Toshiba believes Wireless LAN is safe for use by consumers. These standards and recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community and result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists who continually review and interpret the extensive research literature.

In some situations or environments, the use of Wireless LAN may be restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible representatives of the organization. These situations may for example include:

Using the Wireless LAN equipment on board airplanes, or

In any other environment where the risk of interference to other devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful.

If you are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices in a specific organization or environment (e.g. airports), you are encouraged to ask for authorization to use the Wireless LAN device prior to turning on the equipment.

Exposure to Radio Frequency Radiation

The radiated output power of the Toshiba Wireless LAN Card is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits.

Nevertheless, the Toshiba Wireless LAN Card shall be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized. The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

5.375 x 8.375 ver 2.3

Specific Absorption Rate (IEEE)

Your device is designed to be in compliance with Radio Waves exposure regulations and does not exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves

(radio frequency electromagnetic fields) in accordance with the Federal

Communications Commission (FCC) and Industry Canada (IC). A substantial safety margin is set to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of health.

A unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption rate, or SAR is utilized for the radio wave exposure guidelines. The SAR measurement for devices does not exceed 1.6W/kg.

The actual SAR values for your device, while in use, are normally well below the stated values. The operating power of your device is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the wireless connection to increase system efficiency and to minimize interference on the network. The lower the power output of the device the lower its

SAR value.

As stated by the World Health Organization, present scientific information indicates no special precautions are needed for the use of this device. To further reduce any exposure, limit your usage.

Turn Wi-Fi

Precautions

Your device is designed to provide optimum safety and ease of use, and to withstand the rigors of travel. You should observe certain precautions to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the device.

Keep this device away from small children. This device is not a toy and may be hazardous to small children, for example, small detachable parts may be a choking hazard. Improper use of device could result in loud volume emitting from the device possibly causing hearing damage, and improper use and handling of batteries could result in possible injury.

Never place a heavy object on the device and be careful not to drop a heavy object onto the device. It could damage the device or cause system failure.

❖ Turning off the device while it is reading from or writing to flash media may damage the flash media.

Keep the device and disks away from objects that generate strong magnetic fields, such as large stereo speakers.

Scan all new files for viruses.

22 Introduction

File management tips

File management tips

❖ Back up your files to external media on a regular basis.

Label the backup copies clearly and store them in a safe place.

As you work with data it exists in the device’s memory.

This memory is called “volatile memory” because it is only active while the device is turned on. When you turn off the device, all the data remaining in volatile memory is lost. To help avoid data loss, save your work to

Internal Storage or network storage. Your work (data) will remain in internal storage to be called up when you need it. As long as the internal storage remains healthy, your data is relatively safe. However on occasion, hardware failures do happen. If you experience a hardware failure, your data could be lost. As an extra step to help avoid data loss, back up your data. See

“Backing up your data” on page 42 for more information.

❖ Scan all new files for viruses.

This precaution is especially important for files you receive via external media, email, or download from the

Internet.

Toshiba’s online resources

Toshiba maintains a number of online sites to which you can connect. These sites provide information about Toshiba products, give help with technical questions and keep you up to date with future upgrades. For more information, see

Securing your tablet

If you choose to set a password (with or without encryption), Toshiba strongly recommends that you write down your password and keep it in a safe location where you can later access it should you not remember it.

Toshiba is not responsible for any losses that may occur, as a result of the inability to access your device.

When you initially turn on or wake the tablet, the lock screen requires you to drag the Lock ( ) icon to unlock the screen,

see “Waking the tablet” on page 40 . Alternatively, you can

secure the lock screen by requiring a pattern or entry of a numeric PIN or password, so only you can access your data.

You may also be required to secure the lock screen by a policy set by an email account or other account you add to your tablet. For more information, see

“Location access settings” on page 72 .

You can also encrypt the data on your tablet, so you must enter a numeric PIN or a password to decrypt it each time you power it on.

1 Touch the Time ( ) display in the System bar, touch the time in the Status Details panel, and then touch the

Settings ( ) icon at the bottom of the Quick Settings screen.

You can also open Settings by touching the Settings

( ) icon in the Apps screen or on a Home screen.

“Securing your tablet” on page 50 ).

❖ Charge your tablet’s battery.

❖ Plug your tablet to the AC adaptor.

❖ Schedule an hour or more for the encryption process.

Turning off the device

Turning off the device

It is a good idea to turn off your device when you are not using it for a while.

If you are using the device for the first time, leave the device plugged into a power source (even though the device is off) to fully charge the battery.

Options for turning off the device

You have two options available for turning off the device:

Shut down and Sleep mode. Each option has its advantages.

❖ Use Shut down if you will not be using the device for several days or if you must turn off your device.

TECHNICAL NOTE: Before using the Shut down option to turn off your device, backup your data.

If you change your mind and decide to continue working after all, wait a few seconds before turning the device on again.

NOTE If you do not intend to use your device for a long period of time, turn off the device, disconnect the power plug from the plug socket, and store your device in a dry dust-free location.

Letting the screen time-out or enter into Sleep mode allows the device to conserve power. When turning on the device again, the system automatically returns to the last screen viewed.

To change the screen time-out setting, see “Display settings” on page 71 .

Getting Started

Turning off the device

57

Using Shut down mode

The Shut down mode completely shuts down the device without saving your data or the current state of the device.

Shut down mode closes all open apps, shuts down the operating system, and then turns off your tablet.

Always back up your data and settings before shutting down your tablet.

To turn off your device using Shut down mode:

1 Press and hold the Power button.

A pop-up screen appears, displaying three selections.

(Sample Image) Shut down pop-up screen

58 Getting Started

Managing your accounts

Using Sleep mode

Your device will automatically time-out after a couple minutes of non-operation, placing it into Sleep mode.

The screen dims and then darkens to conserve battery power. For more information on waking the tablet from Sleep

mode, see “Waking the tablet” on page 40

. To change the amount of time it takes for the display to darken, touch the

Settings ( ) icon, and then the Display ( ) icon.

NOTE Increase battery life between charges by using the

shortest available time-out setting. See “Display settings” on page 71

.

You can also place your tablet into Sleep mode by pressing the Power button quickly.

Factors to consider when choosing Sleep mode:

While in Sleep mode, the device uses some battery power.

❖ Because the state of the system is stored in memory, you will lose data if the battery discharges completely while the device is in Sleep mode.

❖ Waking your device from Sleep mode takes less time and consumes less battery power than restarting after shutting down the device.

❖ When starting up again, the device returns to the screen last viewed.

If you place the device in Sleep mode and the battery discharges fully, your unsaved data will be lost. Be sure to backup your data first.

If Something Goes

Wrong

Some problems you may encounter when using your tablet are relatively easy to identify and solve.

This chapter aims to help you solve many problems by yourself. It covers the problems you are most likely to encounter.

If all else fails, contact Toshiba. You will find information on

Toshiba’s support services at the end of this chapter.

Problems when you turn on the device

These problems may occur when you turn on the power.

The device will not start.

Make sure you attached the AC adaptor properly.

If you are using the AC adaptor, check that the wall outlet is working by plugging in another device, such as a lamp.

Verify that the device is on by looking at the ON/OFF indicator. If the indicator is glowing, the device is on. Also, try turning the device off and then on.

The device starts but when you touch an icon nothing happens.

Your device may have an application or resource conflict. Try shutting down and restarting.

106

If Something Goes Wrong

The operating system is not working

107

The operating system is not working

Once you are familiar with the Home screens and used to the way the operating system responds, you can easily detect if the it is not working correctly. For example:

❖ The operating system responds differently from the normal routine

❖ Screens and apps take a long time to load

The screen does not look right

Unless a hardware device has failed, problems usually occur when you change the system in some way such as installing a new app or adding an external device.

Most issues are solved by “recycling the system’ turning it off then back on. If this does not resolve the issue, try uninstalling the most recently installed application or disconnecting the most recently installed accessory. If this still does not resolve the issue, use the About tablet setting to check for available system updates. For more information, see

“About tablet”“About tablet” on page 83 .

Internet problems

My Internet connection is very slow.

Many factors contribute to the speed with which you can surf the Internet. They include: network speed, network conditions, time of day (when everyone else is surfing, your access can be slow) and popularity of the sites you are trying to access. If accessing a particular site is very slow, try later.

My browser cannot find the URL address I typed in.

Check the spelling of each name and the syntax of the address carefully. A single incorrect letter or missed character will make it impossible for your browser to locate the site.

My browser cannot find a site I bookmarked.

The World Wide Web is constantly changing. A site you bookmarked yesterday may not be available today or its server may be down for temporary repair. Try again later.

108 If Something Goes Wrong

Power and the batteries

Power and the batteries

Your device receives its power through the AC adaptor or from the system battery. Power problems are interrelated.

For example, a faulty AC adaptor will neither power the device nor recharge the batteries.

Here are some typical problems and how to solve them:

The AC adaptor works correctly, but the battery will not charge.

The battery does not charge while the device is consuming full power. Try turning off the device.

The battery may be too hot or too cold to charge properly. If you think this is the probable cause, let the battery reach room temperature and try again.

The device does not power on.

Let the battery discharge completely, then try charging it again.

Check the power options. For more information, see

“Optimizing battery life” on page 29 . Is your software using

the internal storage drive more? Is the display power set to turn off automatically? Was the battery fully charged to begin with? All these conditions affect how long the charge lasts.

If the device still does not power on, contact your service provider immediately.

After a period of time, the battery will lose its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced.

This is normal for all batteries.

For more information on maintaining battery power, see

“Charging the battery” on page 28

.

Display problems

Here are some typical display problems and their solutions:

The screen does not look correct.

You can change the display settings by touching the

Settings ( ) icon on the Home screen. For more

information, see “Display settings” on page 71 .

If Something Goes Wrong

Sound system problems

109

Small bright dots appear on your screen when you turn on your device.

Small bright dots may appear on your screen display when you turn on your device. Your display contains an extremely large number of thin-film transistors (TFT) and is manufactured using high-precision technology. Any small bright dots that may appear on your display are an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT manufacturing technology.

The screen does not appear as bright as it used to be

Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the device, the brightness of the screen will deteriorate. This is also an intrinsic characteristic of the screen technology.

When the device is operated on battery power, the screen will dim and you may not be able to increase the brightness of the screen while on battery power.

Sound system problems

The sound settings can be configured to your desired user preferences. For more information, see

“Sound settings” on page 70 .

No sound is coming from the device’s speakers.

Adjust the volume control.

If you are using external headphones, speakers, or a headset, check that they are securely connected to your device.

Wireless networking problems

NOTE This section provides general troubleshooting tips for networking problems, specifically wireless (Wi-Fi ® ) networking.

The terms and concepts used assume a basic understanding of networks, and may be for more advanced users. If you need assistance or if you are not familiar with the terminology, please contact Toshiba.

❖ Your device is equipped with an internal Wi-Fi ® adapter.

Verify that your Wireless connection is enabled. For more

information, see “Setting up Wi-Fi ® and Bluetooth ® connections” on page 41

.

110 If Something Goes Wrong

If you need further assistance

❖ Verify that your device can detect access points or routers. If it can detect a Wi-Fi ® access point or router then it may be a configuration issue.

❖ Verify that the signal strength is good.

❖ If another device is on the same network, verify that it has network access, and can connect to the Internet. If, for example, the other device cannot browse to a public

Web site, the ISP’s (Internet Service Provider) service may be disrupted.

❖ Verify that the Service Set Identifier (SSID), or network name, is correct

- i.e., that it matches the SSID assigned to the access point you are attempting to connect through. SSIDs are case-sensitive.

❖ If you have enabled any security provisions (closed system, MAC address filtering, Wired Equivalent Privacy

[WEP], etc.), check the access point vendor's Web site for recent firmware upgrades. Problems with WEP keys, in particular, are frequently addressed in new firmware releases.

If you need further assistance

If you have followed the recommendations in this chapter and are still having problems, you may need additional technical assistance. This section contains the steps to take to ask for help.

Terms

The following terms may appear in this User’s Guide.

A active-matrix display —A liquid crystal display (LCD) made from an array of liquid crystal cells using active-matrix technology. Also known as a “TFT display,” in its simplest form there is one thin film transistor (TFT) for each cell. This type of display works well with tablet devices because of its shallow depth and high-quality color. Active-matrix displays are viewable from wider angles than most passive-matrix displays.

116 Glossary adapter —A device that provides a compatible connection between two units. For example, the tablet’s internal display adapter receives information from the software and translates it into images on the screen. An adapter can take a number of forms, from a microprocessor to a simple connector. An intelligent adapter (one that is capable of doing some processing) may also be called a controller.

Alternating Current (AC) —The type of power usually supplied to residential and commercial wall outlets. AC reverses its direction at regular intervals. Compare Direct Current (DC).

application —A set of instructions that can be executed by a tablet.

App shortcut —An application icon that can be placed on a

Home screen. Touching one opens the app without having to first open the Apps screen. See also icon .

B backup —A copy of a file, usually on a removable disk, kept in case the original file is lost or damaged.

baud rate —The speed at which a communication device, such as a printer or modem, transmits information. Baud rate is the number of signal changes per second (not necessarily the same as bits per second). See also bits per second .

bits per second (bps) —A way of measuring the speed at which information is passed between two devices. This is the basic unit of measure used in modem communications, and is similar, but not identical, to the baud rate. See also baud rate .

Bluetooth ® —A proprietary open wireless technology standard that uses short wavelength radio transmissions to exchange data over short distances. Bluetooth can transmit from fixed and mobile devices, and provides a high level of security.

Bookmark —A Shortcut can be created and placed on a Home screen from a selected browser bookmark. Touching the icon opens the Web browser to the chosen bookmarked page. See also icon .

Glossary 117 boot —To start the tablet. The term “boot” originates from bootstrap program (as in “pulling itself up by its bootstraps”), a program that loads and initializes the operating system.

See also reboot.

bus —An electrical circuit that connects the central processing unit (CPU) with other parts of the tablet, such as the video adapter, disk drives, and ports. It is the pathway through which data flows from one device to another. See also bus speed , frontside bus .

bus speed —The speed at which the central processing unit

(CPU) communicates with the other parts of the tablet.

C cache —A section of very fast memory in which frequently used information is duplicated for quick access. Accessing data from cache is faster than accessing it from the tablet’s main memory. See also CPU cache.

Central Processing Unit (CPU) —The chip that functions as the “brain” of the tablet. It takes information from outside sources, such as memory or keyboard input, processes the information, and sends the results to another device that uses the information.

character —Any letter, number, or symbol you can use on the tablet. Some characters are non-printing characters, such as a paragraph break in a word-processing program. A character occupies one byte of tablet device storage.

chip —A small piece of silicon containing tablet device logic and circuits for processing, memory, input/output, and/or control functions. Chips are mounted on printed circuit boards.

compatibility —The extent to which tablets, programs, or devices can work together harmoniously, using the same commands, formats, or language as another.

configuration —(1) The collection of components that make up a single tablet operating system. (2) How parts of the system are set up (that is, configured).

controller —A device that controls the transfer of data from a tablet device to a peripheral device and vice versa. For example, disk drives, monitors, keyboards, and printers all require controllers.

118 Glossary

CPU —See Central Processing Unit (CPU).

CPU cache —A section of very fast memory residing between the CPU and the tablet’s main memory that temporarily stores data and instructions the CPU will need to execute commands and programs. See also cache.

cursor —An onscreen symbol (usually a flashing vertical line) that indicates the position where characters will appear when you enter data.

D default —The setting selected by a program when the user does not specify an alternative setting.

E device —A component attached to the tablet. Devices may be external (outside the tablet’s case) or internal (inside the tablet’s case). Printers, disk drives, and modems are examples of devices.
