Go to the Toshiba Support Website and Download/Install any/all Software & Hardware Updates related to your Model. Also, just to rule out the possibilities that you may have a Virus, Run a Full System Virus Scan.. I recommend Malwarebytes.

  • Hi, to verify the "Communication Switch" is on. Go to the "All Programs," select (Toshiba) from the menu, open the "Utilities" program and click on the Toshiba Assist. Next, click on the Toshiba Hardware icon; the next window will open with the Toshiba (HWSetup), check the "Wireless Communication Switch," to make sure its (ON). "I suggest restarting the Computer, after you have applied the changes; the Systems Configuration will be more successful that way. "Rating the solution will let me know if this was helpful to you, and that the problem has been fix!"

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.

Wireless networks not found


Sometimes Satellites get a little flaky when on battery power. If you haven't already, plug in the power cord with the notebook cold - meaning off for about a minute. Boot the notebook and try to do the setup with the power connected. If that solves it, it should work fine when you switch to battery power. If it doesn't, repost with your results.

Wireless does not show up in Network Connections


Did you try - after switching on the "antenna switch" or WiFi hardware - to "Enable" the WiFi adapter, under (XP) Start - Settings - Network Connections - LAN or High-Speed Internet - Wireless Network Connection? (select, right click and select Enable)?

p.s. Once your WiFi hardware is recognized (by Win XP) there is (should be) always a "Wireless Network Connection" in your Network Connections, enabled or disabled, active or not.

Slow connecting to the wireless network


Try downloading spybot defender and running it.
You probably have spyware preventing you to connect to your network.
Spybot defender is free too.
