Can any one help me with this I'm loosing my mind trying to fix the problem.

Need more info. When you say your LAN is not working what specifically is not working? If its your NIC check device manager and see what shows. You may have to go to the Toshiba site and download a driver to get it working. If your NIC is working but you can't get a connection that is a different matter. Just need more info to sort it out.

Is it an exe or msi file? then, right click and select run as administrator. It should work.

Try turning off UAC for now. What model router are you trying to connect with?
