Hello: Is your wireless indicatior lit up. There is a button on the left hand side for turning the wireless on and off, make sure its in the on posistion. Also try going into the Bios setup and turning the wireless adapter off. Reboot machine with it off in bios setup. shutdown the computer an reenabel it in the Bios and save the settings, make sure the switch is turned on also. Check you system information screen and see if its reconizing the wirless adapter.
Also check Toshiba"s website for any updated drivers for the adapter it detects in system Information. Run the wireless setup wizard.
Sometimes Satellites get a little flaky when on battery power. If you haven't already, plug in the power cord with the notebook cold - meaning off for about a minute. Boot the notebook and try to do the setup with the power connected. If that solves it, it should work fine when you switch to battery power. If it doesn't, repost with your results.
Sounds like a dead battery, You need to try it with an alternative battery, most laptops won't aeven switch of if the battery is damaged, also try ro pull out the motherboard and find for dry joints. i.e. any lose transistor or capacito and try to re-solder it, the put the laptop back together,
There isnt a switch for a PCMCIA wireless card. Most likely the driver did not install correctly.
make sure the card is plugged in. then right click "my computer" and click properties then click hardware then device manager. I bet there is a device called "network controller" with a yellow "!" through it. Next make sure the linksys install CD is in the drive, and doubleclick "netowrk controller" then click reinstall driver and let it "automatically find the driver". it should reload the correct one from the CD.
