    this could be caused my a multitude of things. 1st, examine the laptop and make sure there isn't a physical hardware switch to turn the wifi on and off. 2nd, click start and click control panel and then click system, then device manager; expand the + and make sure that the wireless adapter is being recognized by windows. if it's not you may want to visit the toshiba website and download the appropriate drivers. If it is being recognized make sure it's not disabled. 3rd, Make sure there isn't a function key to turn the wifi off and on, usually fcn f8 i believe. If none of that is the issue, reboot the laptop and tap whatever key it says to enter bios or setup. once you are in that screen look for the area where it says 'onboard devices' and make sure that the wireless nic is enabled. good luck!

You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

SOURCE: My Toshiba satellite A25-s207 laptop will not boot up

Does it restart and then ask to go into windows safe mode, things like that. If so here something to try.

I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!


Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as well call it at work anyways.

Dels are known for this.

let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.


Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?

You will need one.

What you do is,

1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,

2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.

3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.

4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Pres " R" for repair.

It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.

5: once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "

6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finishand go back to C:/


Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.

you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.

Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.


WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.

For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.

Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.

What you did was re-installed those windows files.


Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.

This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.

You can help other now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)


Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Wireless does not show up in Network Connections

I had this same problem sometime ago and I first reversed my last action and I still did not get back my wireles. So out of desperation I backed up my files and made use of the recovery disk that came with my laptop, Although I had to wait through the process of deleting the contents of my computer first, after the operating system was reinstalled, to my suprise my wireless connection was initialised and it started working. All I had to do after that`was to point it to the right wireless network to work with. I hope this solves your problem Sahaja.

SOURCE: sp3 and wpa2psk wont install

Particularly I think the problem is not in Wi-Fi connection for your laptop, but the configuration of your router, try using wpa security checks and only connection, besides if you give before you upgrade the service pack, the connection works properly. Additionally if you give before you upgrade the service pack, the connection works properly.

How to connect to a wireless network wi-fi?


There are two sides to the WIFI connection. Your computer's adapter and "client" and the location's router and SSID.

Senario 1: You are in a hotel. The computer pops up and says there are wireless networks available. You click on the pop up and it shows a list of sometimes funny name WIFI networks. Let's say you are in a BestWestern Hotel and the list shows bestwestern in the list. You click on the name bestwestern. At this point you will be asked or told on screen that you have to enter a Security key. You call down to the front desk and get the login information. Once entered, you are connected to that WIFI network. In most hotels, you need to then start an Internet Browser screen and agree to use their network.
Senario 2: You are at a friend's house. You turn on your computer and it pops up there are wireless networks available. All of the names are odd sounding and none of them are familiar. One of those networks shows a very strong signal. This network is probably your friends SSID. You can verify this with your friend. At the same time find out what the security key is for the network. Then click on the network name, enter the key and you will have connectivity to the Internet.

Some networks have access lists, where you can connect to the WIFI, but, if your computer is not listed in the router at the location, youstill have no access. This will require the owner of the network to add you PC information to the router to give you access.

I just reinstalled my pc how can I get the driver?


Drivers are almost always available at the manufacturer's website. Assuming that yours is the A25-S207 specified, here is the download page at Toshiba. If your computer is a different brand or model, go to the manufacturer's site, look for a link for downloads or support, and that's where to start. It's normally just a matter of entering your model or selecting it from a list, then being sent to the downloads for it.

Good luck with getting the computer back to life, and thanks for using Fixya!

Greetings, trying to figure out why my toshiba 5205-S504 cannot access local wifi. Some sort of internal wifi device installed and was working until I reverted back to factory conditions and dummy me...


Use the config-Free software to diagnose your connection. Click Start=>All programs=>Toshiba=>Networking=>Config free. It will show you what is wrong and will allow you to enable the wireless if it is not enabled. If for some reason you cannot find ConfigFree you can do the "repair" yourself.

On your Satellite there should be a switch to physically turn the wireless adapter. The wireless adapter must be turned on: its Led should be lit. There is the image of an antenna near the LED.

This done, you should use the start button ( I am describing the procedure for Windows XP Pro) and click the Connect To submenu =>Show all connections.
In the list of available connections, point to the Wireless adapter and make sure it is software activated. Point with mouse cursor, and right click the icon. Select Enable.
If Windows is managing the wireless connections, you should use it to detect the available wireless networks. To do so, right click the wireless connection and select View Wireless networks. It will show you all the available ones. Select the one you have authorized access to and click connect. You will be prompted to enter a key if necessary and you take it from there.

If you perform the foregoing step and Windows is not the one managing your connections, then you must use the Vaio connection manager (could be Intel PROSet wireless) or some other proprietary one.

Good luck.

Having trouble connecting to wireless network the network is showing up, but it is unable to connect no matter what i have tried


check if you have a wireless adapter switch on the laptop if its off turn it on they are usually hard to spot. Also get the adapter drivers from the manufacturers website they are usually updated. maybe you have different thing around you corrupting your signal, vonage box, cell phone, wireless phone etc. check the frequency you use with all your wireless stuff. all i can think of at the moment and lunch is almost over here at work sorry hope it helps.
