Toshiba A350 Satellite Notebook - Wireless Adapter Won't Turn On
Feb 12, 2011
I have a Toshiba A350 satellite notebook. The wireless adapter was working fine, then I installed Windows 7. Now the adapter wont turn on. I've searched forums, and followed several threads to no avail.The wireless switch is on, but there is no LED. Fn+F8 does nothing. I have restarted and reset the BIOS to defaults.I have disabled Internet protocol 6.All of these have made no difference. I can access the internet via a fixed connection, but cannot get the wireless adapter to respond.
I can't turn WI-FI on in my Toshiba A 665, Win 7. At the biginning worked good ,than vanished. Checking Fn > F8 below main icon (with an antena ) do not show up other four icons below, like they suppose to do. So I'm not even able to try to turn it on. Restarting doesn't do at all. Pushing Wi-fi switch, above the keybord, doesn't even show On/of icon.
I am having to use my ethernet for my lap top, Satellite Toshiba. I have a router and the other laptop in the house works but mine wont. Cox blames it on Toshiba and Netgear and netgear blames it on Toshiba. i blame it on Cox who says for some reason my Toshiba wont allow the signal to be picked up. It goes elsewhere but not my laptop. PS is my satellite burner capable or do I have to buy softwARE?
my wireless connection has stopped working and won't repair itself.I have uninstalled it and rebooted my laptop (as suggested in a previous thread) but it's still not working. I have a Toshiba Satallite Pro L300 laptop.I went to the Toshiba site to find a download for the wireless adaptor but couldn't even find my model number on their system. I can get on the internet by plugging directly to the modem, and my internet provider suggests it must be the adaptor. I'm too scared to randomly download stuff from internet in case it is rubbish and mucks up my computer.
I recently moved and my Toshiba Satellite laptop won't talk to my NetGear router. On the phone with NetGear for hours - tried everything - but tech says the problem is with the laptop and somehow the "Wireless Zero Configuration" tab in my Services is not there? I can connect through the router with my IPOD and Dell laptop.
I have a Toshiba Satellite M70-122, running with Windows XP. A few weeks ago, it stopped connecting to my wireless, but it connects to others. I can connect to my wireless with my cellphone, so it might be a problem with the laptop.And I can connect to the internet with the cable. It's just the wireless that doesn't work.
I am using a toshiba satellite and have accessed the router through another computer and was able to access the internet. I am currently using the ipad to post.At first when i choose my internet connection, it will automativally try and detect the network type, then tell me that "windows is unable to connect to the selected network". I have read other user posts and went to the wireless properties and changed the network authentication to shared and unclicked the "key index". Now, when i click on my wireless network it will automatically ask me to enter my network key. But after i do that, all it does is wait a few seconds and close that dialog box without connecting me.[code]
my TOSHIBASATELLITE T110-11U could not detect wireless network and only can connect to internet by cable . when I try to restore system , it said THE DISK WINDOWS (C) HAS ERRORS. Never happened before and I have no idea why it happened suddenly today.
i have a Toshiba Satellite A215 with Windows Vista Home Premium. The laptop has been running on my wireless network for several years with no issues. For some reason I can no longer access the wireless network/Internet but can through the LAN (cable). I have other 2 other computers (Dell desktop and iPad) that are running on the wireless network so it just seems to be the Toshiba laptop that is having the problem. I have not done anything new to the network router or the Toshiba and am not sure why the Toshiba all of a sudden no longer does not have wireless access. The devise manager says the adapter is functioning properly. I have looked at other resolved issues on your site that have had this issue but have not been able to resolve my issue. As requested with other similar issues here is the ipconfig for the Toshiba.
My Toshiba Satellite (C655-S5049) with Atheros wireless works just fine at my home and a number of public wireless locations (Panara Bread, libraries, school, etc.) There are many other public wireless locations where I try to connect and just get an "unable to connect" dialog box which gives me the options to "diagnose connection problem" (blames the access point). The places that work, work consistently. The places that don't work, I've never been able to get in even though people around me are online with their machines.I'm running thie machine pretty much as it was delivered out of the box. I've installed AVG for virus protection, and I have all the default protection settings (firewall, sharing, etc.).
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-154 and for two years our wireless internet disconnects constantly sometimes for upto an hour. I have tried to diagnose and repair, system restore. The wireless connection shows up but when you try to connect it says:
Windows cannot connect to ... Diagnose the problem or Conect to a different network
I have checked my provider and the wireless works continously on both mobile phones, so Im sure its the computer.
I recently reformatted the hard drive and when I finished I tried to connect to our home network and the laptop will not. The wireless is on, the network shows up, I click connect, put in the password, but it keeps coming up that it cannot connect. When I click diagnose, it reads that I can either try reconnecting to the network or reset the wireless router/access point and try again. We have a desktop connected, 2 laptops, & TiVo with no problems. This is the only laptop that has a problem. Yesterday I reformatted another Toshiba laptop's hard drive and had no trouble reconnecting to the home network. I've read several threads regarding this matter, and have tried the following:
(1) TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows Vista - nothing looked unusual with each step, and (2) ipconfig /all - attaching the txt file with results.
I am at a loss. I don't want to hard wire it as the last time I did this, the internet was lost on all of out devices and it took me a day to get it back to the way it was.
I checked what she needed, updated her drivers for Ethernet and Wireless, and the Device Manager is stating that they are both working fine. (no ! or ? on them)When I plug in an ethernet cable it works fine. It gets connection pretty well through my BT Infinity modem.However the wireless will not pick up any connections at all. I attempted troubleshooting, and all it says, "Your network adapter is experiencing problems" etc.I thought that I may need to turn on Wireless Association on the modem, but that didn't work. My dads laptop is also a Windows 7 Laptop and that works fine and will bring up all connections in the area, including mine.
So I googled around, and I found that I may need to turn on a wireless switch. After looking around the laptop, I noticed two things. 1) There is no wireless switch, and 2) There is an orange light above the WIFI symbol.So I googled around a bit more, and found it might be turned off in the FN+f8 Flash card feature. At first I couldn't actually bring this up, so I reinstalled the flash card, and it began to work. It claims the wireless connection is "On".I am not sure what to do next. I have checked the services to make sure WLAN Autoconfig is on Automatic, and Started, and it is. I also tried disabling, then enabling both ethernet, and wireless connections, which did nothing.
I am trying to connect my Toshiba Satellite A205 to wireless internet through Comcast. It says its connected but only locally and will not let me surf the internet. Every other wireless device in my house connects to the same wireless I am trying to connect to, but my laptop won't.
When using this laptop (Toshiba Satellite C660D-1GD) on the forum it seemed unusually laggy when changing pages, whereas when using my Toshiba Satellite L450D it is always more positive.Decided to do some ping tests via the cmd prompt (after checking the error count via telnet) and they were in the hundreds.The L450D ping tests are spot on so I know it isn't the router (Billion Bipac 7800N)Been the usual route, totally uninstalled the wireless adaptor (Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN 802.11n) including the Cisco elements, Eset and MBAM full scan and downloaded chipset drivers. Even factory reset the router and deleted the wireless profile including reg entries as a last resort.After each of those operations (other than reinstalling the wireless adaptor) the latency would be spot on and continued to be after an immediate reboot, but logging on a couple of hours later or the following morning, they would be very high again.After reinstalling the wireless adaptor for the second time, on a hunch I removed the Ethernet cable and run another test. The latency came in high but when I re-ran the test wired, they were spot on.
Phoned up KnowHow techs and read off the numbers who then put me onto 2nd level tech. He remotely connected and ran a couple of ping -n 50 tests as well as a tracert but was unable to replicate the results I was gettiing. As nothing was broken (for him), nothing to fix but to phone again if it continued.I rebooted after the phone call and got the high latency straight off. I wondered, as the latency returned to normal after certain operations I'd done, whether the remote connection had the same effect.Having been on the phone for 55mins, I'd had enough.These are two tests I've recorded from today which are together in one Wordpad doc, so you'll be able to see what I mean. Ctrl+C has been a bit erratic so they are the only ones I've been able to save. [code]
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D laptop. The internet works fine when it's connected with a LAN cable. With the wireless however, the laptop connects successfully but there is no internet connection. I have had this problem previously, but it was solved when I updated the Atheros driver. However, I have just moved to a new place and the same thing has happened again! [code]
Having a bit of a quandry. I have one laptop, a Toshiba Satellite L500-2H, that seems to get ridiculously slow wireless speeds sometimes. Like, slow to the point of not even being able to load webpages. Or taking way too long to do so. Either it cripples along or can't load outright.sometimes the Toshiba will do exactly what it's supposed to and pull 20 megabits/s on speedtest.net, which is what the others do.
