Wifi not working


Make sure that driver is installed properly. If it is, check for wifi switch. Make sure it is turned on. In some laptops do not have switches, they use the functions keys to turn them on. Use Fn+F2 or Fn+F3. Also, make sure that you just have one wireless utility activated in the computer. It is more advised that you use the Windows Wireless utility which is more compatible with most types of routers.
Lastly, check your wireless card and the wireless router if they are wireless a,b,g or n. If the router is wireless n, your card should also be wireless n. If your card is just b or g, it would not work.

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.

Bought an old compaq n610c, has external wifi which picks up the wifi in the house but then loses it ten seconds later. It is stating that "no wireless network card driver present". When is...


Such Problem are caused when there is no wireless driver/wireless assistance software on the Laptop(COMPUTER SYSTEM)

SOLUTION.
Get the Wireless Driver of the External Wifi you use with the laptop , Re - Install it and also try to Install the WiFi assistance.
if the problem persist then you have to change your External Wifi

Where is the wireless switch on this dam thing


Some laptops don't have a mechanical switch for wifi. But just try to look around the back portion or the front or sides of your laptop. Wifi switches are slide type. You just slide it to toggle on and off.

However, newer laptops have no mechanical switches. To turn your wifi on/off, just hold down the FN key and press the Function Key (F1 to F12) where you can see the wifi logo like this: )))

In my unit, it is FN+F10

Try it out.

How to reple wifi 5610


It is underneath the unit you will see removable flaps, unscrew the biggest one, usually it is there, the WiFi card is a small card with Antenna wires coming out of it, it slots into a MiniPCI slot. Check this also check your WiFi isn't turned OFF via the switch.

Can't use wirelessly


Assuming you're trying to go wireless with an internal mini-PCI wireless card - this series laptops has lots of incompatibilities with WiFi cards. This one I know for sure works well: MPC13A-20/R. It's an 802.11b card and it flies. Get it.

WIFI


Sounds like one of these problems.

1) The wireless hardware is turned off in the BIOS. Reboot and check to see if there is an entry in the BIOS for the embedded wireless card and if so make sure it is set to ON.

2) The hardware is not recognised because the drivers are not properly installed. Check in DEVICE MANAGER to see if the wireless appears at all, and if it is in an error state. If so, re-install latest drivers from the manufacturer's web site.

3) Other software necessary may be missing. Some machines have wireless manager clients that they need to access the card. Check on the manufacturers' web site for these utilities, and if found, install them and reboot watching for new (different) problems to arise.

4) You could have buggered wireless hardware, but this seems pretty unlikely. Some wireless cards are add-ins and can be removed from the laptop motherboard by accessing them through a door on the bottom of the unit. If that is the case with your machine, power down the unit and remove the wireless card. Check in the hardware manager to make sure no device errors for the card remain, and if they do, remove the hardware by right-clicking on the error device icon and clicking on REMOVE HARDWARE. Then, power down and re-insert the wireless card and reboot and try a clean install.

Good luck...
