Question about Toshiba Satellite L505-S5966 Notebook

Open Question

My toshiba L505 S5997 is not recognizing the wireless network. The genius at Toshiba said to restore my backup or return it to factory specs. Neither solutin worked. The device manager says the network card is working properly but the vomputer still can't recognize any wireless network and when I go to try and sign on it says no connections available, I think it is some sort of switch somewhere. Any ideas?

SOURCE: lan card toshiba wireless no working

Check this Tip for an overview

  1. Connect your PC to your router using LAN Cable: be sure you can browse internet
  2. If you cannot browse check router config with your ISP
  3. Connect to your router using IP address you find for gateway in Network status
  4. Configure your router wireless section to match with your PC card
  5. Start removing security, broadcast radio signal, create a simple SSID as network name
  6. Check if router network is seen by your PC card (when you disconnect the LAN cable and activate the wireless card)
  7. If connection is established ( near the router) try different location
  8. Reconnect cable and reconfig adding security protocol (WPA-PSK recommended) use parameters compatible with your lan card

SOURCE: Wireless network adapter won't turn on

Hi there.
It sounds to me that the Atheros wireless card may have gone bad, in some cases this does happen.
Check in the bios to make sure that the wireless adapter is enabled, apart from that i cannot suggest anything else as you have just about troubleshot everything a PC technician would do before coming to the conclusion that its the hardware which is at fault.
If the machine is still under warranty then please take advantage of that, if not then a reputable PC repair shop will be able to fit a new card in the laptop and they will make sure it works before it comes back to you.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

There's two WiFi Driver available, try to use the Realtek first and if it doesn't work try the Atheros. If WiFi driver installed correctly you should no longer see the "!" symbol and you will be able to enable wireless on your laptop using FN key combination.

Hope this works for you.
