My wireless switch is on, and Function+F8 won't do anything for me, and my computer keeps telling me "wireless capability on this computer is turned off". I haven't changed anything in my computer- i went to bed and it worked, got up, and it didn't. What happened here? How can I fix it?

There are two..a mechanical one, and a firmware one..check the panel on your satellite pro, to see IF the wireless is illuminated. if not, find the switch on front or side of unit, and turn that on first.

Interchangeable parts


I dont think so as the S1712 uses the Atheros® 802.11 b/g wireless-LAN card and the s2716 uses the Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG card. You can call Toshiba TS to verify, but most likely they are not interchangeable as they are different. That doesn't mean that it is 100% a no go as it still might function, but chances are slim. Here are links to the specs for each machine:

You would either need to replace the portion of the case where the wifi switch is located (can't buy just the switch) check on ebay for cheap replacements.
You could if you want remove the wifi switch and hot wire the contacts together (permanent wifi on)

Don't know how to setup wireless toshiba satellite pro 6100 pc notebook


Most Toshiba 6100s come standard with wireless cards installed. If you're unsure, just turn on the WiFI antenna switch (near its SD card slot) and see if the WiFi access LED lights up (the WiFi LED is the rightmost LED on the front of the unit) -- if it lights up, then you've got a stock Wireless card in your system.

Email me if you can't determine which card you have.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000. The wireless LAN was working ok till some snow got onto the back of the pc. The PC boots up ok but cannot find any wireless network. The Wireless led on the front panel...


The internal wireless cards of these laptops are underneath the keyboard (remove the plastic strip above the keyboard, then 2 screws holding down the keyboard, then remove the Torx security screw holding the WiFi cover). See if the snow job might have gotten to it and perhaps corroded it? The stock WiFi card is an Agere MPC-13a/20 (MPC-13a/20R) model - widely available on eBay for $10 or less.

If it's too troublesome, a wireless card that plugs into your PC card slot is probably the cheapest solution.

Wifi switch is turned on however, when i try to search for a wireless network i get a message saying that i need to turn on my wireless switch


So I understand that your wifi card doesn't work?If that is correct go to Toshiba site and check their support-from the other computer-of course.If card is dead, you will need usb wifi.

Just got a toshiba satellite pro a60en laptop. do these generally have wi-fi built in or do they nhand eed a wireless card. on the right side there seems to be a blanket covering what i presume to be


Depends on the model mate most do but, as for the ones that don't then the ATHEROS chipset WIFI board that fits insde and is widley available froom sellers on-line better on ebay though also you can always use a wireless PCMCIA card in the card slot or, buy the internal one and fit it.

Does my laptop have wireless internet??


Basically they don't. They can be purchased and easily installed by opening the cover that contains it and inserting it just like inserting memory and then connecting the white and grey wires to the wireless card.
