SOURCE: wireless network

Hi xiomaravlz. To turn on the wireless for your Toshiba Satellite, there is a switch on the very front of the laptop. Up where the headphone jack is. When you turn it on, you should see a light beside it.
Hope this helps!

Is more than likely the wireless LAN card has gone faulty.
If the laptop is no longer under warranty, you will probably find its cheaper to plug in a USB Wireless Dongle.
Not ideal I know but it would be cheaper - and quicker.

you can try to totally disable it, by doing right click of the mouse in top of the broadcasting wireless icon. once is disabled, you can go by START / CONNECT TO / WIRELESS CONNECTION and try again. that should work.

I have toshiba l500 i changed windows vista to windows 7 now its wireless not working


First thing to do is to Go to the Toshiba Support site, ... navigate to the driver support page for your specific laptop model, ... then download and install the WI-FI drivers for your wireless card that are Windows 7 compatible. That should get your wireless working, ... UNLESS your wireless feature has been shut off in the BIOS. If that's the case, you'll need to enter the BIOS when booting the laptop and turn the wireless feature on.

While your downloading the Wi-FI drivers from the Toshiba site, you should also download the latest BIOS update IF it's a newer build than the one surrently installed in your laptop. Also download and install the motherboard chipset.

I'm pretty sure your problem should be taken care of if you follow those steps.

My toshiba wireless does not work. It does not show any wireless service. I have two computers and the other computer works. I have reinstalled the entire hard drive and updated the software. It still...


What model of Toshiba laptop do you have?
What operating system? XP, Vista or 7?
Make sure the wireless switch on the side of your laptop is in the on position.
Make sure there's a wireless icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and it doesn't have a red X through it. (If it does, your wireless is turned off or otherwise not connected to anything.)
Look in the Device Manager and look under Network Adapters. Make sure there's a wireless network adapter installed, and it doesn't have any yellow question marks or anything on it.
Wireless can also be enabled or disabled in your system setup (before Windows starts). Power on your computer from scratch, and when you see a "Press F2 to enter setup" prompt or something similar, hit that button and enter the system setup. Look through the menus for device configurations. In there you can turn on or off certain things.

Good luck. I hope this gives you something to go on. Let me know if you need any more help!
