Question about Toshiba Satellite P15-S479 Notebook
I recently replaced the hard drive in my machine and am in the process of reinstalling programs, drivers, etc. However, it still fails to recognize that there are any networks in range. I've gone through the Toshiba support page to no avail. I've checked to make sure the wireless adapters are running in computer management>services and that the drivers are updated via the device manager. Before I replaced the hard drive, it worked automatically without any problems. Any suggestions? Thanks! (note: my machine is a Toshiba Satellite P15-S409 laptop; it did not appear in the product listing below).
Hi, On several instances of this type problem, I normally suggest to check the particular WiFi Networking card that is used by the Toshiba laptop. This could be done by going to the Device Manager under Networking adapters. Thereafter go to the website of the chipset/wifi manufacturer and check if they have a connection utility. Sometime Windows WiFi Configuration utility fails to detect the existing network. You may have to use the config utility of the manufacturer. A method of verifying if your WiFi is working and if it can detect the network around it is by downloading, installing and running NetStumbler. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
