The wireless keyboard on my Toshiba Satellite 1955-S803 quit working after a windows update on 10/17. This happened once before and a system restore solved all of the problems. For some reason, I can't do a system resotre to any of the previous restore points that are stored on the computer.

Download a Ubuntu Live CD and try to connect to the internet. If that works, then you have a driver problem. Try updating your wireless driver for toshiba by searching toshiba drivers. find your model and download the correct driver and reinstall it.
If Ubuntu doesn't even get internet, then you have an hardware problem. Wireless cards don't usually die, so it's probably overheating. so prop open your keyboard and clean the wireless card instructions here: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-1.htm
Hi there. It sounds to me that the Atheros wireless card may have gone bad, in some cases this does happen. Check in the bios to make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled, apart from that i cannot suggest anything else as you have just about troubleshot everything a PC technician would do before coming to the conclusion that its the hardware which is at fault. If the machine is still under warranty then please take advantage of that, if not then a reputable PC repair shop will be able to fit a new card in the laptop and they will make sure it works before it comes back to you.
CAN'T GET THE DRIVERS? HAVE YOU GONE TO THE MICROSOFT WEBSITE? IF YOUR COMPUTER IS WORKING YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEARCH FOR DRIVER UPDATES ONLINE. THERE ARE QUITE A FEW PROGRAMS OUT THAT WILL SCAN YOUR SYSTEM AND DETECT THE DRIVERS YOU NEED AND POINT YOU TO THE SOURCE. TRY PC WORLD AND CNET FOR STARTS. OR GOOGLE DRIVER UPDATES. I'VE USED ALL THESE BEFORE WITH LUCK.
Try holding down the CTRL-ALT-DELETE keys three times when the Toshiba logo appears. This may remove or at least bypass the password. If not:
Go to the link below and based on the unit you have, download the latest BIOS update and install manually from floppy or CD. This will update the sysyem, wipe out all password and get you into the system.
