Question about Toshiba Tecra 9000 Notebook
I had a computer person configure my laptop in order to get on the colleges wireless network and ever since he did that I cannot get onto my home wireless network. An error message comes up that says my wireless adapter is turned off. How do I turn this back on?
I had this problem on my tecra9000, also My headphone audio and laptop speakers did not work either.
re loaded drivers still the same.
I have fixed it though...The good news;
fact: if you operate the slide switch on the front of laptop and the orange LED does not illuminate then it is not software!! this function is a hardwired dc level change made via the audio PCB/flex throught to the Main PCB and on to the WiFi PCB.
the likely cause (common) is dry solder joints on the SMD long interconnecting plugs which connect the main PCB to the sister PCB, so it is a easy strip down job reflux and solder operation.
The cause of this fault IMHO is thermal cycling differentials between the two PCBs over a long period of time.. despite this a damn good little laptop though!!

There is a switch on the front, which you switch on and it lights up red.
Then search for wireless connection and it should find it no problem.
good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

In order for the wireless computer to connect to the router wirelessly, the router and the computer's wireless settings should be the same. Before trying to connect your wireless adapter to a Linksys wireless router, please know the following: SSID or Network Name, Wireless Security and/or Network Key.
