Usually to turn on wireless, or any other function, you would press the Function key (Fn) usually blue writing too. Press that and theone of the F keys or number keys to turn your key functions on or off.
Hope this helps ;)

I am not able to connect through internal wifi(wireless) network device in my Toshiba Satellite L505D Laptop. I am able to connect net through a external USB wireless network adapter.What is the problem...


Locate the wireless switch and turn it on? if it is on you might need to reset the modem from your service provider. Just go and hit the reset button on the modem or turn it off completely. Power it up again and make sure that the switch is turned on if you have one for this lap top some are automatic.
The switch is usually located on the left or right front of the lap top housing in the front or on the keypad. You may have to push the FN key if the key is blue highlighted. Hit FN and press the wireless key if applicable. Make sure all is on and switched then reset the wireless modem or connection.

How to turn on wireless switch on a Toshiba 5205-S505?


First - Determine if your Toshiba Satellite has built-in Wi-Fi. Open the Start menu in the lower left corner of the desktop. Choose "Control Panel" and select "Performance and Maintenance." Click on the "System" icon and click on the "Hardware" tab in the System Properties window. Click on the "Device Manager" button. Click on the plus sign next to "Network adapters." Look for a device that has "Wireless" or "WLAN" in the name. If you see this device listed, then you have built-in wireless.

Next - Turn on the wireless by holding down the "Fn" key on the keyboard and then pressing "F8" at the top of the keyboard. Press this combination until the window indicates that Wi-Fi is on. Some Toshiba notebooks have a switch on the front left side of the laptop that will turn the Wi-Fi on. Many Toshiba Satellites have an LED indicator light on the right front edge of the notebook that will turn on when the Wi-Fi is on.

Finally - Click on the Start menu in the lower left corner of the desktop. Select "My Network Places" and click on "View network connections" in the menu on the left side of the window. Double click on the "Wireless Network Connection" icon. This will open a window that lists available wireless networks. Click on the name of the network you wish to connect to and click on the "Connect" button at the bottom. Type in the password if required and connect to to the network. Open a web browser to test the connection.

Not able to connect wifi in my lapopo


In connecting through a wifi, there are two factors to consider. (1) Wireless Router broadcast and (2) Wireless Receiver.

Make sure that your network router is broadcasting wireless internet or wifi. Also, you have to know if you need a pass key or password in order to connect to the wireless network.

Now, given that there is a wifi spot, your laptop should automatically recognize the wifi broadcast and negotiate connection without your intervention. This will only happen IF AND ONLY IF your laptop has a wifi radio receiver and that it is TURNED ON. When it is turned ON, it will connect you immediately if the network has no pass key set. If there is, then you have to enter that key when you try to manually connect it. (Right click on wireless network icon on system tray. Then it should say: Wireless Network Available. Then Click CONNECT)

To turn your wifi radio receiver ON, slide a switch button to ON position depending on your laptop model. If you dont have that kind of switch, look for the wifi icon printed in the keyboard keys. In some laptop, it is in F2. Now Press FN+F2 to turn wifi radio receiever ON and OFF.

No wireless network in range. My wireless network is set to automatic but I am getting the message above when I search for wireless networks. I know there are at least three here.


If you are so sure of three wireless networks in range then it could be the HW problem in the laptop. Is the green light indicating WiFi lighting on? May be your WiFi switch is non functional. So switch on the WiFi and then look for LAN. Login and not searching a LAN are two different problems. If you cant search the wire less LAN then how can you log into any. So it has to be HW problem as you cant locate any although there are three available. So start at the WiFI switch.

We are tring to connect to a wireless internet connection and we cant. it says we need to turn on the wireless networking radio? how do we do that? we have a toshiba satellite laptop. thanks


There should be a wireless button or switch on the perimeter of the laptop. Either this or a function key on your keyboard that you need to depress while clicking another key that has a wireless picture icon on it.

If you hit the right switch you should get some kind of notification either on the display or with the enabling of a new wireless light on the laptop.
