    It's the orginal card coming with the laptop and it worked fine until I reinstalled the OS. i did see it under device manager after I updated the latest driver. However I do not see the wireless light light up and it can't find any wirless connection.

    Looks like the key i'm talking about is the F4 key from what i can see on the pics

    look for any switches on the edge of the computer that have a tower and radio signals "I" kinda like that.
    If there is no actual switch to turn it on look for the same symbol on your F-keys. If you find one there hold down the Fn key and the one with the pic on it.

    is there any icon next to the device in the device manager? Are you sure it is installed the correct way?

    Not much help to offer here really all you can do is buy another network adapter and see if it works. if not you can return it.

Actually, you have to make sure you click on it to make sure that it's activated and it has a good connection to whatever it's going to, by the way you have to make sure it's the right card for the right system. It's like a car, you can't put any old engine in it but...it has to fit right.

My wireless won't connect to the internet. The switch is on. The laptop can connect when I use a cable.


Try downloading the latest drivers from Toshibas site
If that fails, open the base of the laptop (should be a cover there), check that the wireless card is installed and the two wires that attach on push posts are present and attached. One is black (main) the other white (aux).

In device manager, check that the wireless hardware is detected, if it is not seen and the card is presnt and connected, the wireless controller has failed, or the card itself is damaged and will need replacing.

I restored my home computer and the Internet will not work on the desktop but it works on my laptop


The desktop computer's wireless card may not have the latest wireless card driver installed or it is not enabled and working. Check Device Manager to see if is is working and enabled. I suggest you install the latest wireless card driver.
Next check the wireless card configuration, it needs to have the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.

Wireless button


The T30 laptops do not have a on/off button that turns the wireless card on.
Once the wireless card driver is installed the wireless card will detect any wireless router and access point within its range. You need to configure the wireless card to connect into the wireless router or access point eg. the encryption, SSID etc.
The Thinkpad laptops have different wireless LAN cards installed, when you install a wireless card driver and it doesn't work, then install a different model wireless card driver. Also make sure the XP or Vista version of the wireless driver matches the Windows version that is installed on the laptop.

Wireless switch


Hi,

try downloading the latest driver for the device, from the manufacturers website.
There are different wireless modem cards, in different laptops.
Try This:- go to MyComputer/Control Panel/System/Device manager. if you have any yellow exclamation marks by any of the devices, then they are not functioning correctly. either re-install the driver. Or uninstall reboot the computer, when the hardware wizard detects the device, you will get options to search/ re-install driver et,c.

thankyou for using Fixya.
