Does the scanner have a program installed to manage connections? You might need to open it up and tell it to manage your wireless connection and not Windows.

Does TOSHIBA SATELLITE 2805-S301 have a way to go wireless


Hello If your using Microsoft Windows open, Controll Panel , System , Device Manager. Look down the list to Network Adapters and click the plus symbol. If you have a wireless card installed it will show the name and type. Right click the wireless adapter and click properties. This box will tell you the status of your wireless adapter. If no wireless adapter is shown you will have to install a card. If the card is present and enabled you may have to turn the wireless function on by using a combination of keyboard keys or look for a switch on the computer. Hope this helps.

On my toshiba satellite L455D-S5976 when i press F8 button nothing happens for wireless. how do i switch wireless lan on/off?


The F8 button is to get into safe mode not for wireless!!!!
There is either a button near the lid to switch it on or off.
Alternatively right click on the wireless icon at the lower left and switch on.

Hiii all plz help me with this ... cant open my wirless network in my toshiba laptop ..always says "the wireless network device is disabled plz turn on the device" despite it is enabled how zat???? thnxx


The device may be enabled but is the radio switch in the "on" position. These are different. There is either a switch or keyboard combination that turns on the wireless radio. If everything is "on" then try this.

Toshiba satellite wifi not working


Hello
You might have physically switched on the adapter, but in Windows it is still disabled.

In Windows XP, click the start button, look for CONNECT TO (don't go in the all programs menu), and click SHOW all connections. A window opens showing all the connections available. If the wireless connection icon displays a red X crossing it, it is disabled.

To reenable it,

Point the mouse cursor to the wireless connection and right click mouse button. Click enable or repair.

One question though. If your computer is toshiba, you must have installed the configFree software that came with it.

If so, look to the left right of the task bar and click the ConfigFree Icon. Choose Connectivity doctor. It will diagnose your connections. If one is disabled or has a problem, a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark ! will appear on the connection.

Use the device setting thumbnail, select your WIFI adapter . A button at the right bottom side, will show either Enable (if your adapter is disabled), or disable i(f adapter is enabled). With that button, you can toggle between enable and disable. After that click the close button, and hopefully you will be able to surf the web.


Hope it helps

Wireless does not show up in Network Connections


Did you try - after switching on the "antenna switch" or WiFi hardware - to "Enable" the WiFi adapter, under (XP) Start - Settings - Network Connections - LAN or High-Speed Internet - Wireless Network Connection? (select, right click and select Enable)?

p.s. Once your WiFi hardware is recognized (by Win XP) there is (should be) always a "Wireless Network Connection" in your Network Connections, enabled or disabled, active or not.
