Satellite A505-S6980 

 


when i go to wifi protected setup, it says, This network device is disabled.


Open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc), expand Network adapters, and double-click the Realtek wireless device.

 

What does it have for Device status?

Not a tab. There is no wireless device listed under Network adapters?

 

Try installing this driver. You don't need to verify the device if it's missing.

Changes From Previous Version

1.Fixed: The Wireless LAN card stops working and can not be detected by the system.

still nothing happens after downloading and installling it. besides it says in the link that you gave me,
This driver is for computers configured with the Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN adapter. Before downloading this driver package, please verify the type of Wireless LAN adapter that is in your computer.   and I dont have that wireless LAN adapter in network devices. what will I do... 

 

 

the picture is after i install it and restart the computer. still the same.

Try this reset.

 

With the battery and AC adapter removed, close the Power switch for 30 seconds.

Re-attach those, press the Power button to turn the computer on, and then immediately press the F2 key while the Toshiba logo is displayed. Press F9 to restore the BIOS default settings, press F10, and then select Yes (Exit Saving Changes). The computer will restart.

 

Anything new turn up in Device Manager?

Sorry, I don't have any new ideas. It wouldn't hurt to try installing that driver a couple of more times, rebooting after each. I've read here that it sometimes responds to another try. Don't pay any attention to that warning about checking Device Manager.

 

   Realtek Wireless LAN Driver for Windows 7 (32/64) (Version 2007.1.1002.2009 - Released 05/12/10)

 

And it wouldn't hurt to try installing this earlier one.

 

   Realtek Wireless LAN Driver for Windows 7 (32/64) (Version 62.1176.812.2009 - Released 11/06/09)

 

A dependable way to test whether the wireless card is bad is to restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media. Unfortunately, that wipes the drive clean in the process.

As I said, restoring the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents using Toshiba recovery media will either fix the problem or tell you that it's due to a hardware malfunction.

 

See the section Recovering the Internal Storage Drive, which begins on p. 60 of the User's Guide.

That pretty much tells us you have a hardware malfunction.

 

Instead of a repair, perhaps you would prefer to add a USB wireless device.

Is it expensive to have it repaired or have a wireless device replacement?
do they have the same wifi quality?
