On a lot of laptops there is a switch on the side or front of the laptop facing. If not then there might be a FN+key to access it. And by that I mean that you have to hold down the FN key and press the corresponding F# key to activate it. Such as FN+F6. Most of the time the Wifi logo looks like an antenna with waves coming out of the top of it.

Best of luck

    You're exactly right, there is a tiny little micro switch right on the front lip of mine. In fact if you can see it and switch it on, a tiny light will come on. I did find this in my initial 8 hr attempt to get my LR to recognize the Bluetooth on my wireless phone. I wasnt sure if WIFI and Bluetooth work together or separably. Regardless, I tried it both way with the switch on and off... still had no effect on my little problem...

My father-in-law has an A660 that had the same problem, that I have been trouble shooting for the past hour... And I have just worked it out... The row of lights above the keyboard are SOFT TOUCH BUTTONS on the A660! FFS I've been screwing with this thing for an hour and all along what I thought was just a light is in fact the button!

By 'W', i guess you mean wireless, first remove your power adapter, then next your battery from your laptop. press the power button for 40 seconds(note that nothing will com on since the laptop is not powererd), Next put back your battery(preferably fully charged), then switch on your laptop. Wireless is now enabled but may stil ve switched off, switch it on using FN+F8 keys. Good Luck

HOW DO I TURN ON THE WIRELESS ON MY TOBISHA LAPTOP


If you're using a Toshiba laptop and you can't figure out how to enable WiFi you probably aren't alone. Thankfully there are several approaches you can take from a hardware and Windows Operating System stance to turn on your wireless connection while making sure you can properly connect to a wireless network.

      Look at the keyboard options on your laptop. You should see a button that looks like a small antenna. The button placement may vary from device to device. For instance, you may have a dedicated button or it may be placed much like the option circled in the picture to the left of this step.

      Click on the "Windows Start Button" and Navigate to "Control Panel" then click on "Network Connections" or "Network and Sharing" depending on your version of Windows.

    • 3

      Right-click on your wireless connection icon once the "Network Connections" window opens. Choose "Enable" and left-click on that option with your mouse. Wait for the wireless connection to enable.

      Alternatively you can try clicking on the " Windows Start Button" and then clicking on "Connect to," where you will click on "Show all connections." When the connection window opens up, you should right-click on "Wireless Network Connection" and then choose "Enable." Now right-click on "Wireless network connections" and then choose "View Available Wireless Networks" to see if your WiFi adapter is enabled.


Hope this was helpfull

Since the WARRANTY still is valid, the easiest route is to exercise the warranty.

Or, use the supplied "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs to reload Windows (this will wipe-out any data from your 'C:' disk-drive).

It might be possible to temporarily remove the disk-drive, connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in another computer, and then to copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s), before sending it in for warranty service.

I have a Toshiba Qosmio F60 series. My son using


We had the same problem and the above solution didn't work. It wasn't anything your son did, but obviously a problem with the computer itself. Disconnect from the mains and pull out the battery with the computer still going, then restart. When prompted just open Windows normally and the wifi was now functional again.

If it ain't the WiFi Antenna on switch (right side, towards the front), then it's an incompatible WiFi card (assuming it's just been added to the system).
