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

2 ADMINISTRATIVE

3 COMPUTER MANAGMENT

4 DEVICE MANAGER

5 NETWORK ADAPTER

Listed will be

1 Intel

2 microsoft

3 realtech

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....

Why Toshiba Satellite A665 Laptop won't start?


Have you tried pressing space bar (maybe its in hibernation mode) ?

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on.

as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

Wireless communication switch is disabled. I am not able turn on wireless communication switch. I was wondering if Toshiba a135-s4527 has a built wireless hardware????Vista SP2


When you say oyu cant turn on the wireless switch does that mean after flicking the switch usually located on the front or side of the laptop it sitll doesnt work. or have you tried holding the function key (fn) and hit the wireless symbol key on your keyboard it looks like the letter i with circles around itusually on the f8 key. by holding fn then f8 key it should turn it back on

Wireless network


Hi xiomaravlz. To turn on the wireless for your Toshiba Satellite, there is a switch on the very front of the laptop. Up where the headphone jack is. When you turn it on, you should see a light beside it.
Hope this helps!

No internet


Hi! Saft question but is the wireless connection switched on? on My Satellite there is a little switch at the front near the clasp the keeps the lid locked, turn it to the right and a little Amber light comes on.
If you are wirelessly connected and using Windows try hovering over the internet connction bars down to the right on your taskbar it should say wireless connections available click on to connect, also if using a secure network you'll need to input the security code for your p.c. to communicate. This should sort it!
Good Luck and a Very Happy New Year to you and your Family!
