Have a look for a switch around the side's of the laptop, if there is not one there you may have to use the keyboard to activate it, look at the "F" keys at the top of the keyboard for a symbol that loos like a broadcasting aerial/ antenna, if you find this key hold down the "Fn" key and Press the key you found, that should activate the wireless, just give it a minute or so to pick up networks

Enable wireless


Is there a wireless switch on the side or in front of the laptop? If so, turn it off and on by the switch.

Try looking in the Network Connections at the wireless adapter and see if it is disabled. If so enable it. Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Adapter and enable it.

HOW DO I TURN ON THE WIRELESS ON MY TOBISHA LAPTOP


If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.

      Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.

      Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.

      Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.

      Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.


Hope this was helpfull

Hardware switch on a amilo fujitsu laptop


On some of the Amilo Models, the Wi-Fi button is actually a key combination on the keyboard. Have a look for a key with the wireless symbol on it - looks a bit like an antenna, and hold Fn while you press that key. Your Wireless should come back on.

Fujitsu's can be odd, cause the hardware button (mentioned above) doesn't actually disable the driver in Windows, just turns it off so no connections appear.
