Wi-Fi problem Toshiba A15-S157 laptop

Wi-Fi stopped working. The switch is on but the Wi-Fi function is dead. Appears to be a hardware problem. Is the Wi-Fi function on a seperate board or integral in the main board in this computer?

Were you able to use your wi-fi before you have this problem?

If not, then try pressing FN + F8 . Or try doing a system restore.

If your laptop has a di-fi switch/button chances are you have one integrated on the main board of the laptop, check if the wi-fi adapter is installed properly by going to the Device Manager and check Network Adapters normally a wi-fi adapter will show up if not check if you have any devices listed under network devices(Network Controller, Ethernet Controller). Now if the wi-fi card is installed and the status on the Device Manager say's that it's working properly, you may now check your laptop for a 3rd pary wi-fi utility/application that manages your connection look for it on the System Tray on the lower right hand side near the clock or go to all programs and look for any WLAN utility, when you open the utility make sure the wi-fi radio is turned on or enabled.

Where can I find hinge parts or a new hinge for my Toshiba Satellite A15 S157 close to the 95023 area?


New hinges are gonna cost you more than the laptop's worth. Used hinges you can buy off of eBay - not always available since the hinges in this entire series have been breaking since the day they were sold. Ain't a pretty picture, for sure.

Toshiba satellite a15-s157 wifi problem


Your card has the correct drivers installed, but that's not enough Windows XP has native support for WiFi. Just visit
www.toshiba.com and go to Products & Services, select Portables and then on
the left hand side click Support, then choose Tech Support Center, choose
your model of laptop in the list boxes and voila, a list of all Toshiba
drivers, choose the WiFi software and install.

Wi-Fi not connecting on Toshiba Satellite A15-S157 PC Notebook


you tried giving it a static IP address rather than using automatic settings (i.e. DHCP). Sure enough, this cured the problem, connected fine. I looked in the dhcp server logs and while it was not complaining that the IP address pool was all used, it did seem that all the IP addresses available were being used. I increased the number of IP addresses available to be allocated by the dhcp server and problem solved. The big mystery to me is why Windows XP would report this as a problem with a weak signal? Isn't the access to the dhcp server and the allocation of the IP address at a layer above the wireless connection? Anyway, it's useful to be warned that the wireless diagnostics are misleading.

Repair Disk


I believe you are referring to the recovery disk. This is available from the manufacturer. Please check if you have the Recovery Disk Creator program in your laptop. If you do, that means you can make your own recovery disk. If not, please contact manufacturer. Hope this helps. Thank you.
