How to turn on the wireless card on Sony pcg11211L


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.

Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.

This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.

When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.

If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.

Locate the wireless switch on your computer.

It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.

Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.

Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.

The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.

Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Satellite p35 will not go to wireless


Might not have a wireless card installed ??

If your Toshiba Satellite notebook computer is equipped with a wireless Internet card, you can connect to a Wi-Fi access point by turning on the wireless switch on the side of the laptop.
However, the signal may not always be picked up by your wireless receiver; if that is the case, you will need to check your wireless-network settings and reconfigure the network connections manually.

Open the Network Settings program. Click on the Control Panel in your "Programs" bar and select "Network Settings."
This will give you options for modifying how you connect to the Internet.
Select "Connect to a Network" or "Show Network Status and Tasks."
Both selections will show you whether you are disconnected from the wireless network.

Select "Manage Network Connections."
This selection is located on the left side of the window; clicking on it will show you whether you are connected to a local area connection or wireless network connection.

Engage the wireless connection.
Turn your wireless switch to "On," then right-click on the wireless network connection.
Select "Connect/Disconnect."

Wait for the IP address acquisition.
It may take a few minutes for your Toshiba Satellite to pick up the signal and transmit your IP address.
When this is complete, you will see the word "Connected" next to the name of your wireless connection, and a series of bars that indicate signal strength.
Launch your favorite browser to access the Internet using the wireless connection.

No wireless connection


What do you mean by other identical computers have the same location?
Each wireless card has a unique MAC address so they should not interfere with each other. Are the laptops all communicating with the same wireless router or different routers?
If the laptops are communicating with different routers and there is interference between then you should change your wireless router to work on a different channel to the other routers.

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.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L10 laptop which now fails to detect the hard disk during a start up. It shows a PXE fault and won't proceed any further. The laptop is running XP.


Your computer is trying to boot from LAN. Somehow the boot order got changed in the BIOS. Access the BIOS and set the first boot device to the hard drive.

Refer to this article for further assistance.

Hi i cannot see any wireless LAN on my new toshiba L300-11c laptop? can you advise how to sort this please? Thanks


You need to go into the routers programming and make sure the SSID is broadcasting and also while inside the routers programming rename the SSID to something familiar like your last name. If you need help accessing the programming let me know what Brand/Model# router you have and we will make sure its working properly. Also some laptops have a manual switch for turning the wireless on/off usually on the left side near the front.

Wireless switch


Make sure you have the latest drivers, router and NB.

Does it connect on reboot with the SSID off?

Does it work on repair?

if so, check your energy settings, some times they power down the wireless to save energy. There are also settings on how it behaves.
