TOSHIBA Satellite A665 S6050 wireless connection problems

This has happened multiple times with my laptop and usually it is fixed with a reboot but this time it's not the same story.

I am not able to connect to any wifi right now because it say my radio hardware switch is turned off. I try using the function keys and I also try to use the little button above the keyboard and this doesn't do anything. My friend said it is possible that the BIOS is doing something wrong. I would like help in any ways possible. Maybe I just have to update my driver? I haven't updated it since I bought the laptop but I never thought to since it didn't prompt me to and since I never had the problem get this serious before. I am running windows 7 64 bit.

Please any help or advice that u guys could give will be greatly appreciated.

Satellite A665-S6050

 

Open Device Manager (search for it in the Start Menu if you need), expand "Network adapters," and tell me what's listed. Is there a yellow exclamation mark next to any of them?

very sorry about the late response. i do not have my laptop with me. and i dont remember what the drivers were exactly.

i do remember there being no exclamation signs and all the same drivers that were there when i got it are still there.

Yes, let me know just to be sure. Then we'll try reinstalling the drivers.

 

Have you ever needed to make any BIOS changes? If there's nothing you've specifically changed, we can try restoring the BIOS to default settings.

I have the same computer and I'm having the same problem.  I checked my device manager and it says that my network adapters are working fine and there are no exclamation marks next to anything.  I don't think I've made any BIOS changes.

I have the same problem and same network adapters as Le-Le.    It's definitely my laptop as an older Dell connects with no issues and my iPhone also connects and stays connected just fine.  I have tried other fixes mentioned on site - changing power management settings, tried to update drivers.  I even tried removing the battery.  No luck.  Everything was working fine until today.

I have a problem with my satellite, and I went to the Devices, and all of my network adapters are yellow, except the only ones on there are 

-Network Controller (flag)

-PCI Simple Communications Controller (Flag)

-Unknown Device (Flag)
