Question about Computers & Internet
At times the adapter "shows" everything is going including the adapter showing that it's working okay. But at this time, it doesn't see any wireless networks at all. I'm not sure what else to look at - any thoughts?
Make sure you didnt accidently put it in the recycling bin pull up bin and see what you have thrown out

On some laptops you can access the wireless adapter quite easily. perhaps it's only a bad connection, requiring some Electronic Contact Cleaner, or loose connection. Or the antenna, usually located behind the monitor, has a pinched , broken wire. The wire feeds through the hinges. Or , as you most likely suspect, the wireless adapter may be bad. I don't know the model of Toshiba. Take a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z19kc5fERsE

This happened to me when I had to install a wireless router in my house using my laptop to initialize the network for the first time.
The start up software messed with my settings for wireless detection on my laptop. It turned off the automatic detect for wireless networks in the
"Wireless Zero Configuration"
(This has the settings for the 802.11 wireless adapters
i.e. the one that comes with the R4000 presario)
to get to this hit start>run...
and type in this:
go to "Wireless Zero Configuration" and enable automatic startup
, if the service is stopped, start it.
hit the apply button to save your settings.

SOURCE: Wireless network adapter - Vista
I know this is over a year, but have you tried checking the bios setting? It may be that the bios has an option to disable the integrated wlan.
