Hi, have you tried the front wlan switch? It is located at the front of your laptop and usually will resolve the problem. If it is already on, then turn your switch off and then on. Also double check the function key to make sure that it is on. If it still doesnt work, you will need to start checking other things such as drivers, and if the drivers are there, then it could be a wlan card failure. To check the drivers, click on Start>>right-click on Computer>>left-click on Manage. On the left, click on Device Manager, and under the heading of Network Adaptors, see if there is anything corresponding to your wlan adaptor. If there is nothing like this, then your card seems to have failed. Otherwise, a yellow exclamation mark indicates a driver problem. In this case of a driver problem, right click on it, and then click on uninstall. Restart your computer and see if the wlan works. Failing all of that, it would point to a wlan card failure. Hope this information helps

Can't get the wireless to come on


Exterior Wireless Switch
Step 1
Position the laptop so that you're facing the screen and the keyboard is in front of you.
Step 2
Check the front edge of the laptop's casing.
Step 3
Identify the wireless indicator light labeled with a wireless antenna icon. The "On/Off" switch to the left of the indicator light is the wireless switch.
Step 4
Move the switch to the "Off" position to deactivate the wireless adapter or move it to the "On" position if you want to power on the wireless adapter.
On-Screen Wireless Switch
Step 1
Press and hold down the "Fn" function key on the computer's keyboard to display the laptop's hotkey card icons on the screen.
Step 2
Click the "Wireless" icon on the screen or press the corresponding hotkey button on the keyboard, typically the "F8" key on a Toshiba laptop.
Step 3
Click the "Wireless On" or "Wireless Off" icon in the options list below the hotkey card icon to activate or deactivate all wireless connections. If your laptop has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, you can also choose to activate or deactivate these services separately.

How to switch on wireless


On your Laptop, there's no dedicated key/button for wireless as other Toshiba Satellite. There's a hotkey function. Press Fn+F8 (simultaneously) to activate the wireless and press the same keys to deactivate.

When you look at the F8 key, you'll see the wireless symbol (something like tower).

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Brightness


You have a blue key that says FN (stands for function) on the bottom left side of your keyboard, next to control and shift. The brightness and dimming hotkey is usually on the arrow keys or up on your f row, f1-f12 and you'll see like a sun and half sun in blue, same as the function key. While holding that function key tap keys you found and it'll brighten and darken. If it doesn't, you may need hotkey software installed, a new LCD (backlight may have failed) or inverter which powers the LCD.
