I am aboutsure about the question, but what i understood is wireless switch location

First close your laptop, then look the front view where the speaker is located, From the left

1.Speakers Left and right speakers deliver stereo audio

2 Power indicator Lights up when the computer is on.

3 Battery indicator Lights up when the battery is being charged
4 Bluetooth communication
button/indicator (for
selected models)
Press to enable/disable the Bluetooth
function. Indicates the status of Bluetooth
communication (optional).

5 Wireless communication
Press to enable/disable the wireless function.
Indicates the status of wireless LAN
communication (optional).

6 Line-in jack Accepts audio line-in devices (e.g., audio CD
player, stereo walkman).

7 Mic-in jack Accepts inputs from external microphones.

So your wireless switch is the 5th one from the left. Locate it and turn on the wireless, and try to connet to the router.
Try this, hope it may work,

Have you installed the wifi connection as a network? Use your network connection wizard and then make sure that any security coding matches.

If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.

      Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.

      Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.

      Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.

      Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.

Hope this was helpfull

I just purchased an IBM Laptop model T23-type 2647 and I need to find where my wireless connection switch is located to turn the wireless connection on, can you help me?

Unless I'm very much confused, this laptop does not have WiFi wireless capabilities as provided by the manufacturer.
I checked the user manual for this laptop, and there is not mention of built-in WiFi capability.
It may be that the laptop has an add-on PCMCIA card that supports WiFi. In that case, you would need the software that came with the adapter or download the software from the vender's web site.
This is the location that I found the user manual: HERE

"No wireless network found"

you may have caused damage, or disconnected the wireless radio when you dissassembled / reassembled the case. Take it apart again and check if the wireless works while it is apart. then identify the location of the radio and see if the connection is damaged.

My laptop wont connect to any wireless connection at all anymore, but I can plug it in to the ethernet and it works. the wireless switch is turned on and when i try to connect to any connection and it says...


For your wireless card problem, be certain that your wireless access is turned on. Often there is a switch (location depending on the model) to to turn wireless off and on.

Then, if still a problem, I'd suggest to go to Device Manager. Right-click your wireless network card and select Update to update the driver.

If still a problem, go back to Device Manager. This time delete the wireless network card, restart your computer and see if the problem resolved.

If still a problem, replace your wireless card.

Hope this helps.

I have just checked the specs of your laptop and it says that these come standard with a wireless network card.

What problem are you having in regards to wireless?

Some laptops have a switch (generally on the front or sides) that needs to be activated before the wireless card is "enabled" in the operating system. You will need to refer to the owners manual for the location of this switch.
