Question about Computers & Internet
I have seen this as a recurring problem with some Toshiba's on a number of different websites.
Have you tried holding down FN (function key) and pressing F8. This should toggle the wireless on and off.
I found this post on a web site. Feel free to try, I do not know if this will work for you.
"I got Tech support a few weeks ago and for the most part the below will work. It may not continue to work but it lasted a week for me than the problem flared up again and the solution works again if you repeat it.
The tech walked me thru these steps:
I click START
3 COMPUTER MANAGMENT
4 DEVICE MANAGER
5 NETWORK ADAPTER
Listed will be
She than had me open up the MICROSOFT and delete it
Than the Intel and delete that
Don't worry ...when you now reboot they will both be restored
It appears that the Toshiba software for the wireless conflicts with the Microsoft and by doing the above the TOSHIBA software becomes dominate again ..BUT ...I have found that in time ...they will conflict again.
She told me that the Microsoft software is needed in some Microsoft programs but is not needed with your wireless network.
Since the problem has re-occured a few times , what I did today was follow the above steps but this time I just opened up the MICROSOFT and DISABLED that adapter. Rebooted (I think- i don't remember-can't hurt) and all is well.
I'll try this awhile and see.
Just remember that you have DISABLED the Microsoft adapter and in the future you need to remember how to ABLE it if ever needed....
