Footballkenn,

normally toshiba tecra has 2 type of switches for the wireless radio.

One will be the normal switch, which I think you can see it mounted on, either on the side or the front of the laptop,
another switch will be the function key on the keyboard, which require you to press the "fn" key. Check your keyboard for a wifi symbol which normally a tower with a radio wave.

Hope this help, come back if you still have the same problem, or other problem.

Your rate for my solution is much appreciated. thanks.

toshiba tecra 8000 does not have built in wireless, you need to install an external wireless adapter (usb or pcmcia), and use the software provided with the wireless adapter to configure it

Wireless LAN PCI card


for the tecra 9000 it does have a wireless switch on the side of the laptop or infront.

the only way to test this is by dismantling it and using a tester. (hope you have them).
