Cant activate wireless capability on my toshiba satellite L40-139

When i turn on the wireless from the switch at the front of my laptop an icon at the top of my screen shows the same thing as when i turn off the switch. When i try to connect to a wireless network it says to turn on the switch at the front. Is there anything I can do myself to fix this or will I have to get it repaired professionally?

    You can check to see if the wireless is enabled in the bios screen. Did the wireless work before?

Can't get the wireless to come on


Exterior Wireless Switch
Step 1
Position the laptop so that you're facing the screen and the keyboard is in front of you.
Step 2
Check the front edge of the laptop's casing.
Step 3
Identify the wireless indicator light labeled with a wireless antenna icon. The "On/Off" switch to the left of the indicator light is the wireless switch.
Step 4
Move the switch to the "Off" position to deactivate the wireless adapter or move it to the "On" position if you want to power on the wireless adapter.
On-Screen Wireless Switch
Step 1
Press and hold down the "Fn" function key on the computer's keyboard to display the laptop's hotkey card icons on the screen.
Step 2
Click the "Wireless" icon on the screen or press the corresponding hotkey button on the keyboard, typically the "F8" key on a Toshiba laptop.
Step 3
Click the "Wireless On" or "Wireless Off" icon in the options list below the hotkey card icon to activate or deactivate all wireless connections. If your laptop has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, you can also choose to activate or deactivate these services separately.

Toshiba laptop will not pick up my wireless belkin router except when I am attached to ethernet cable


Do you have the belkin configured for wireless? Do other laptops in the house pick up the belkin?

Did you have the wireless switch on the laptop turned on?

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

How do I activate the wireless function?


Does the laptop have wireless capability? Is there a wireless card inside the laptop?

If so, look on either side and at the front of the laptop for a Switch that turns the wireless on. Once you have the wireless switch on there are keystrokes that you can use to toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))).

When I use Function to turn on my wireless capability, the light near the switch on the casing turns off. I can't access the internet. Don't I need them both on at once?


does that light has the wireless icon as well? if it does then you don't need to use the Function to turn your wireless on when that light in lit up... having it lit means the wireless is on...

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)

Bluetooth activation


Check first if you hve the bluetooth hardware. go to device manager under conrol panel (classic view). Check and see if yu have bluetooth listed under device manager, If none, your unit is only BT ready but not capable.
If you can see it under device manager, turn on the wifi switch on the laptop. Find the Bluetooth icon on the notification area(looks like a blue circle with the BT icon), right click on it to enable.
Hope this helps.
