Have you tested using an Ethernet cable?
I assume you will need to download an updated wifi driver from Toshiba. Either using another PC (and a flash drive) or the wired connection.

Good luck

Many thanks, absolutely right. As soon as I updated the driver on device manager I was able to connect. How something so small can be overlooked by me. Thanks again problem solved.
