There are two..a mechanical one, and a firmware one..check the panel on your satellite pro, to see IF the wireless is illuminated. if not, find the switch on front or side of unit, and turn that on first.

Hope it helps.

Wireless router


Is this a laptop? if it is, see if there are any switches or buttons on the case. Most laptops have hard switches or buttons to turn off the wireless adapter, but Windows will still show it as enabled when you try to connect. Try to look for a button with an antenna or satellite symbol on or beside it. Just press it once, and then try to connect again. Try pressing the "refresh wireless networks" button in the place where you would connect to wireless networks. Hope this solves your problem :)

Wireless network


Hi xiomaravlz. To turn on the wireless for your Toshiba Satellite, there is a switch on the very front of the laptop. Up where the headphone jack is. When you turn it on, you should see a light beside it.
Hope this helps!

Hi,  Please do the following: Start>Run>type devmgmt.msc>under device manager>Right click on Wireless network adapter>uninstall, once done, click on scan for hardware changes on top. the network adapter would be back on its place.
