    I also have had this problem, a variety of forums came to think it's a permanent motherboard issue with a $3-400 fix from HP... there is a recall on other laptops but not the tx1000z is my understanding

Notebook won't connect wifi

Hi, assuming your laptop is switched on.
Above the keyboard on the right side are the three 'Easy buttons'. The one on the left is for the wireless function.

Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.

Wireless communication switch is disabled. I am not able turn on wireless communication switch. I was wondering if Toshiba a135-s4527 has a built wireless hardware????Vista SP2

When you say oyu cant turn on the wireless switch does that mean after flicking the switch usually located on the front or side of the laptop it sitll doesnt work. or have you tried holding the function key (fn) and hit the wireless symbol key on your keyboard it looks like the letter i with circles around itusually on the f8 key. by holding fn then f8 key it should turn it back on

I have a toshiba satellite PSL30A-00100E,, which has wireless LAN .. but when i try to connect through one of its programs it says please turn on the wireless lan, it does not have a switch or button to...

You can check firstly that if the wireless network card is installed properly, if so then check if its enabled in My Network Places ( Winxp) or Network and sharing center> Change adapter settings in windows 7 if you cannot find the hardware there, (Local Area Connection in xp) and (Wireless Network Connection in Windows 7) then restart the laptop go to BIOS and check for the Internal Devices and make it enable, it should work then or prompt you for the new hardware found

On my toshiba satellite L455D-S5976 when i press F8 button nothing happens for wireless. how do i switch wireless lan on/off?

The F8 button is to get into safe mode not for wireless!!!!
There is either a button near the lid to switch it on or off.
Alternatively right click on the wireless icon at the lower left and switch on.

I cannot get the Invilink Wireless LAN to work, the adapter is not seen no matter which driver I install....the model I have has the Invilink button next to the power on/off switch....any suggestions?

have you tried restarting your computer and going into setup with F8 or whatever key it takes to enter setup for you. and check if it is enabled. if its not that then i would try to see if you need any kind of software to run it. im sure that one of those will work. If it doesnt then u need a new adapter.

My wireless system on my laptop is off how can I turn it on? No wireless found in range! Make sure your wireless switch is on how can I put the switch on?

Some laptops have a switch in front next to the wireless light or on the side.

Some laptops use an F key (my toshiba is F8) so to turn on the wireless I would have to turn the switch on in front and then "toggle" the Wireless on by pressing the FN and the F8 keys.
