    Have you reinstalled the Toshiba software? The Fn is manufacturer specific. If you don't have the software you can download it.http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/...

Restore FN + F8 key to reactivate Wi-Fi on Toshiba Satellite L500


Hi,
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.

My fn key wont work on toshiba sattelite pro


FN (Function Key) that is usually located near the bottom left on the keyboard is not a key that you press by itself to do anything. The FN key works in combination with the (F1 thru F12) and any other key that has the same symbol or color as the FN Key. You have to Press and HOLD the FN key while pressing another key.

If the FN key is Blue and for example your F8 key has a (white F8 on it and a Blue battery icon on it) then to see your battery metor (how much charge it has left) you would Press the FN and hold it then press the F8 key. The F8 that is white does not require you to press the Blue FN.

Sometimes the FN key might have a white square on it, then the keys that work with the FN key will also have a symbol with a white square around it.

Cant find the wifi switch


Hi,

Press the Fn + F8 on the keyboard.

The Fn key is located at the bottom right corner of the keyboard and F8 (you'll see a small antena icon with F8) is at the top center.

Look for a NumLock key which may be written in colour, then press Fn key and the key with NumLock written on it.

LED light for NumLock should go out
