I can no longer connect via wireless network. Computer says I do not have a wireless adapter


Hello,
There might be many reasons why this might be happening..
1) Click on start and run (windows + r) and type "ncpa.cpl" and right click on wireless network connection and make sure its enabled. 2) Click on start and run (windows + r) and type "devmgmt.msc" and hit enter. 3) Now expand "network adapters" and double click on your wireless adapter and see what the device status is. If it says an error try re-installing it. If its not detected then there might be some issue with the wireless card inside the laptop and you will have to contact your laptop vendor to get it fixed.
Hope this helped.

Toshiba satellite wifi not working


Hello
You might have physically switched on the adapter, but in Windows it is still disabled.

In Windows XP, click the start button, look for CONNECT TO (don't go in the all programs menu), and click SHOW all connections. A window opens showing all the connections available. If the wireless connection icon displays a red X crossing it, it is disabled.

To reenable it,

Point the mouse cursor to the wireless connection and right click mouse button. Click enable or repair.

One question though. If your computer is toshiba, you must have installed the configFree software that came with it.

If so, look to the left right of the task bar and click the ConfigFree Icon. Choose Connectivity doctor. It will diagnose your connections. If one is disabled or has a problem, a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark ! will appear on the connection.

Use the device setting thumbnail, select your WIFI adapter . A button at the right bottom side, will show either Enable (if your adapter is disabled), or disable i(f adapter is enabled). With that button, you can toggle between enable and disable. After that click the close button, and hopefully you will be able to surf the web.


Hope it helps

Wireless connection


If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on.
Did you get the wireless hub?
Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected.
You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services

Problem - Errors on Startup


The process erroring out has to do with the Toshiba wireless settings. http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/cfsserv/ "cfsserv.exe is a process belonging to Toshiba's ConfigFree utility and searches for Wireless Devices. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems." I would attempt to completely un-install this utility and then re-install it. After re-installing this utility, make sure the wireless setting on your Toshiba and your wireless router match exactly. If you have trouble using the Toshiba utiliy, you can always try the built in Window utility (that is if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed).
