Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook

Wireless Disabled, not just in sys tray where I'm used to finding it

I was at Kinko's today, plugged into their ethernet/software and printed some stuff. The software that they used to charge me said that it would need to disable my wireless but would reenable automatically when it was done. Well, got home and now my wireless doesn't work. The switch is on, it says it's connected, but there are no wireless connections in range. It's just blank. Any suggestions?

Check to see if you have a switch/button that toggles your wireless devices. It might also be a keyboard combination like Fn+F9 or Alt+F?

The ethernet controller on my Dell Latitude C540/C640 Notebook has not worked in a while. I am able to get wireless internet access, but no luck when I try to connect to my router via a direct line. I...


If you are using Windows XP, go to Control Panel > Network Connections. Right click on Local Area Connection and then click Enable. (This is only applicable if the ethernet port is disabled).

Also, you may go to Device Manager (Right Click My Computer > Manage > Device Manager) and then check if the ethernet is disabled or has a question or exclamation mark.

If both dont work, your ethernet controller is broken.

No internet on HP Pavilion Notebook


The first thing I would try is a USB wireless adapter. If this works it may be a hardware problem. If this does not work it is likely a software problem. Make sure the interfaces are not disabled in the connections window. Make sure you are using a good cable, test it elsewhere.

My wireless button is not working


Please try to check the specification of your laptop again, have you installed a separate wireless network card on your laptop.

Based from the specification on the HP manual, the communication feature for your laptop are:

Communications 10/100/1000 NIC High speed 56K modem with digital line guard NOTE: Designed only to allow faster downloads from high speed 56K modem compliant sources. Maximum achievable download transmission rates currently do not reach 56 KB/s, and will vary with line conditions. NOTE: Modem availability is subject to country regulatory approval.

If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
