My laptop didnt enable the wifi with the fn+f8 key.
I even reset the cmos and nothing.
Then I went to toshiba drivers website and after installing the "thku" "toshiba hotkey utility" the fn+f8 start working and enable/disable the wifi. It now shows a popup windows when I press the fn+f8 key.

Before the wifi led was always off. Windows detected the wifi device but nothing on the wifi available list.
Now the led is always on, starts orange when I turn on the pc and blue when connected.

Why is my Toshiba Satellite L505D-GS6000 Wifi driver not found?? After resetting, checking device manager, trying fn+f8, and dowloading the driver it still doesn't show up!!!


Sounds like a bad wireless card or the card slot.I would try replacing the wireless card.When wireless cards go bad they either cause the laptop to not boot,low or no signal reception or the card isn't seen at all by the motherboard or operating system or .both.If it isn't showing in device manager either with a caution sign or installed the card is most likely bad

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.

The toshiba satelite L505d-s5965 cannot connect with the wireless


There are two things you have to first check on:
1) Check if the wifi turn on button is set to on or use the Fn keys on keyboard for that.
2) Check in the computer devices to see if the driver is installed, not conflicting and working well.

Can not connect to wifi due to wireless switch


I assume you have a laptop or notebook. If you look closely at your keyboard, you'll notice a couple of keys next to the spacebar, usually on both sides, that have something like "Func" printed in blue or another color.
Now, if you look at the rest of the keys on your notebook, you will see that some have two
functions: the desired character key, and another, in the same color as that special
function key.
If you now look at the topmost row of keys, or the 'function" PF keys, it's likely that
they too have a second function, depicted by a small icon in the same color. The icon
you're looking for should look like a radiating antenna, and it may have on it (or elsewhere in the notebook) a small (usually blue) LED that comes on that comes on when WiFi is turned on.
The combo key action you refer to means that you should press the special function key next
to the spacebar first, and then the key that has the icon, to toggle WiFi on or off.
In other cases, there's a recessed button along the edge, either on a corner, or on the sides of the notebook, with a similar icon depicting an antenna of some sort, and it usually has an LED that comes on to indicate WiFi is active.
If all fails, your user's manual is the best source of information to find the key/key combination you need, since not all notebooks/laptops have these keys/buttons in the same place.
Good luck!

Wifi switch not hooked up - stuck in off, how can I override swit


Did you check to see if the wifi was properly plugged in?
Usually this happens after they replace the motherboards or anything else that makes them unplug things.
I would check to make sure it's plugged in and check the wifi card if it don't plug in and make sure it's compatible.
Happy Holiday
