    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

  • Anonymous May 06, 2009

    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.

Satellite p35 will not go to wireless


Might not have a wireless card installed ??

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.

Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

Getting wireless computor and router back on line with desk top computor


1. Disconnect power from your modem and router
2. Connect an ethernet cord from your modem's ethernet port to your router's Internet or WAN port.
3. Connect another ethernet cord from a port on your router (labeled with a "1" above it).
4. Connect power to your modem and router.
5. I'm a little unsure about how you plan to connect your wireless computer to the router. The router you selected when you created this question is not wireless-capable.

If your router is wireless-capable, go to the wireless computer. Follow the instructions for your operating system below.

Windows XP

1. Right-click on the My Network Places icon on your desktop, and select Properties.
2. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection.
3. Right-click on View Available Wireless Networks.
4. Double-click on your network from the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).


Windows Vista

1. Click on the network icon on the lower-right of your screen (it should look like two computers with one behind another. It might have a red "X" over it.)
2. Click "Connect to a network" (it also might be labeled "Connect or disconnect")
3. Double-click on your network from the list (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name.

Mac OS X

1. Click on the AirPort menu in the upper right of your screen (it looks like "("s turned on their side).
2. Click on your network in the list that appears (it should be called "linksys" if you didn't change the name).
