Unable to turn on the wireless communication switch - Please HELP!

Hello,

 

Wireless connection has not been working since I turned on my computer this morning. It is the first time it happens since I bought this M645-S6045 laptop one year ago.

I tried pressing the Wireless Antenna ON/OFF button located on the System Indicator Panel above the keyboard, but it doesn't show anything on the display and it continues not working the wireless.

The Play/Pause button on the System Indicator Panel is also unresponsive.

I tried also to reinstall the driver, following the suggestion given by Jerry_Lippey in another post, but it didn't get any better.

My internet is fortunately working through the cable/lan but it would be very nice if I could I work again out of my desk.

 

I will be very glad if anyone can help me!! Please!!  =)

Go to:

 

Computer > Local Disc C: (it's your hard drive) > Program Files (not the one with x86 or x64) > TOSHIBA > TBS

 

Then look for TBSWireless. Double left click on it until it says ON. That should do the trick.

I thank you too, sandwichguy.  That's still another way to toggle wireless and one I had not heard of before.

You are the Man!!!!!! I've been down 2 weeks looking for a solution. Reloading drivers, resetting restore points, unloading/loading devices. Seems that the bar button just would not turn on the wireless, but that little trick worked immediately and I am back up.

I have a similar problem. My keyboard is steadily losing function, and most recently the bottom row stopped working. Not a big deal because I use a wireless keyboard, except that I had the wi-fi turned off via Fn + F8. It's now stuck off. I went into the TOSHIBA folder in program files, but there wasn't a TBSWireless. Help would be greatly appreciated. I have a Satellite L-550 btw.

Which specific model? Check the label on the bottom, FaronA, for the model and part numbers.
