    i have a compaq laptop and i have the same problem i cant figrue out how to turn wireless capability back on and theres no buttons

    Same problem. The SWITCH is on and lit up - 'womonsoft7' didn't read the question. The internet will be connected fine and then all of a sudden drop. It takes ages for the diagnostics to finally tell me to turn my wireless on (after first trying to tell me I'm not in a good place for wireless signal) - usually I need to restart it.

    Advice?

To the satellite E105 S1402 with WiFi problems. The solution is:


1. Make sure that your router is operational.
2. Make sure that the WiFi switch is on.
3. If your Wifi used to work out of the box, then you need to buy a Flash Drive (if you don't already own one), then you need to do a Backup of all your users documents on the Laptop.
4. Use the CD's that came in the box to re-install Vista 64.

Don't waste time with Toshiba support, you will end up in Phillipines and quite honestly, I am shocked that Toshiba does not have a better support process.

I had the same problem and I had to re-install the OS. It is not that painfull to do and should take about 1/2 hour.

Cons: You have to re-install additional software that you installed after purchasing your laptop.

On the satellites there is usually a button on the front of the unit for the wireless. Try this first.

How to turn on wireless capability


Install the wireless card driver if it is not installed.
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How to load Integrated Wireless LAN on my toshiba satellite a45-s1202


If your Toshiba Satellite notebook computer is equipped with a wireless Internet card, you can connect to a Wi-Fi access point by turning on the wireless switch on the side of the laptop. However, the signal may not always be picked up by your wireless receiver; if that is the case, you will need to check your wireless-network settings and reconfigure the network connections manually.

Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings." This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet. Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks." Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network. Select "Manage Network Connections." This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection. Engage the wireless connection. Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection. Select "Connect/Disconnect." Wait for the IP address acquisition. It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address. When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength. Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.

Laptop cannot log on wirelessly . have Bigpond land line and an Optus wireless connection , neither will connect . Other computers in the house have no problem


Check if the wireless switch on the Computer is turned ON. Based on the Operating system, make sure that wireless is enabled in the supplied application, for instance, if you're using Windows Vista Operating System then make sure that wireless is enabled in Windows Mobility center.
Check in the Device manager whether the wireless adaptor has any exclamation mark. You can reach to the device manager by typing devmgmt.msc in the run dialog box and clicking OK.
Under the Device manger, click the plus sign beside the "network adaptor" and chekc if the wireless driver is listed and doesn't have any exclamation mark. If wireless driver is listed but has an exclamation mark then right click on it and uninstall. When prompted to delete then select yes and restart the Computer.
next visit the support site of the manufacturer to download the wireless driver compatible to the installed Operating system. Furthermore, you can run network diagnosis by opening Internet Explorer and click on the 'repair network".

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TURN ON THE WIRELESS CAPABILITY ON MY ACER ASPIRE LAPTOP 5810-4657 THERE FOR I AM NOT ABLE TO TO CONNECT TO MY WIRELESS INTERNET.


[1] make sure the switch for you wireless network is turned on, and I think it is either located between the screen joints and the keyboard, or right on the side of the computer [the side that always faces you when the computer is on the laps]. Next, check to see if it has detected any wireless Networks, you could do this by right clicking the icon for the wireless network, in your bottom right corner and clicking on 'view available wireless networks'. if they do not show, you will have to refresh. When the links are listed, select the one you wish yo connect to and click 'connect'. if it needs authentication, you'll have to provide a network key

How do i turn on the wireless capability?


Theres a slide on switch there somewhere on the side or front of your laptop. Once you turn that on you will see an a little computer icon on the lower task bar of your desktop screen near where the time is shown. That is telling you that your wireless radio is on ready to accept and connect to any unsecured wireless network.

You should have a quick reference sheet that came with your laptop (if new) which usually shows you which and where the features are at (USB, wireless switch, etc) .

If you have Vista just right click that little icon and select "Connect to a network" and if theres any wireless network in range choose whichever network (SSID) you want to connect to

Or in Vista click on Help and Support and on search bar type " wireless set up" and it will instruct you on how to proceed.

You can buy a wireless router for your home to connect directly to your existing ISP modem (if you have one)
