You can go the hardware (device) management and unload the drivers or uninstall the device. You may also have a switch on the sides of your laptop.

Turning on the wi-fi, toshiba satellite l505-s5966

Turning on of wifi in laptops are usually done using the keyboard's function key and a Wifi button located from F1 - F11. Also a LED light indicator is placed somewhere in your Notebook, Which will tell you if your wifi is turned On/Off. So here is what you must do.

  • First try to locate your wifi button which is located from F1 - F11, it has a small logo like an Antenna with a signal wave on both sides.
  • Now when you found the botton, for example in "F5" , Hold and press the Function Key which is the "FN" then press the wifi button which is the "F5" in short presentation is this " FN+F5"
  • Remember to press it only once because pressing it twice will result in an off wifi. So be sure to press it only once.
  • After pressing it, a LED light should turn on, it is located somewhere in your notebook. When this light is on this means that your wifi is already turned on.
  • and Thats it.
Hope that my solution will help.Thank you for using Fixya!

Cannot turn on wifi on T400. Intel 5100 card

Is the "broadcast-tower" light on (the leftmost icon on the lite-bar below the screen)? Have you got an available/working WiFi router? Have you been able to choose a network to connect to? My T400 works fine when all the above are enabled..
