Wireless problem On my toshiba satellite m40 I must shut off the wireless adapter switch off and then to on to be able to get into the internet. If I do not do this I can not get into the internet even with switch in on position. It should automatically load the wireless so I can click in. I have made sure everything is enabled. Is there an area iImust adjust for this?

If you are using windows vista

go to control panel
go to network and sharing center.
on the left side go to manage wireless networks.
remove all the wireless networks and restart the computer.

plenty of wireless network may affect and confuse the wireless adapter.

if still having the same issue then you will need to visit toshiba website and download the drivers.

cheers

My wireless internet doesn't work, and the on/off switch is turned on


Hi,  Please do the following: Start>Run>type devmgmt.msc>under device manager>Right click on Wireless network adapter>uninstall, once done, click on scan for hardware changes on top. the network adapter would be back on its place. If that doesn't resolve the problem, reinstall the driver for wireless network adapter using the link given below: http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/Toshiba/Satellite/L305-S5894/4183/9941/42341/Drivers.aspx 

hope this resolves your issue.

After format, I couldn't connect wirelessly to the net, is it the card/adapter or the driver?


That would be the driver.  Make sure to re-install all of your drivers that have a yellow ? next to the name (right click on the my computer icon, and select properties. Find the tab that says "hardware" go to device manager and you will be in the right spot. )http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=1042095&rpn=PSM40U&modelFilter=M40-S417TD&selCategory=3&selFamily=1073768663&selModel=1042095|PSM40U

Wireless network disconnecting


There should be a panel on the bottom of the laptop that you can access the wireless card from. I'd pull the card out and then reseat it back into the motherboard.

Should be pretty self-explanatory once you see it.

Let me know what happens.

Best of luck!

Toshiba satellite m40 booting problem.


Hi! It appears that possibly your hrad drive isn't set properly in the caddy? with the laptop powered down and disconnected locate the hard drive cover pop out the two locating screws and carefully move the caddy/hard drive BEWARE as the drive has fragile pins at the opposite end where you opened, hopefully little sliding pressure should remove. Check the retaining screws around the caddy (You'll need a small torx/philips screw driver for this) if all tight replace gently.
If you are uncertain I would recommend a technician check it for you.
Good Luck!

Toshiba Satellite limitations on network adapters all wireless, need other


you need to log into the router setting by typing something like 192.168.*.* etc,check the right one for your router and enable some type of encryption like 128bits wep..Then your network is secured with a password which will stop anyone access.Now also change your router password if possible to prevent access from others...Hope this helps.

Won't startup


Try removing the battery and the AC adapter from the laptop and press the power button a few times. This should drain any remaining power from the laptop. Now plug in the AC adapter and try turning it on.

Toshiba Satellite M40 Internal Wireless Card replacement


On the bottom of the laptop there will most likely be 2 panels to remove. One will be the hard drive, the other will be your RAM modules and most likely your wireless card. It'll probably be in the middle. Open this up, your wireless card will have two wires plugged into it that you'll have to unplug. Then on each side there is a tab that you have to click outward, then the card will flip up. Then you can just pull it outward. Do the reverse for installing the new card.
