Wireless Communication Switch is Disabled

This is a solution that worked for me and allowed me to manipulate my wireless switch again. Perhaps it will help all those persons going through advanced elaborate processes( like i did at first) to no avail. Go to the folder on your c drive "Program files\Toshiba\TBS. Then scroll down the list of program files and double click on the file named TBSWireless.exe and hey presto, the wireless communication will turn on (Amber Light will come on on the front bottom right panel of the computer). From now on the FN-F8 Key combination will turn it on and off. Courtesy of WW

Re: Wireless Communication Switch is Disabled

When you hit the Fn key, does anything appear at the top of your screen? I had an issue with a laptop yesterday where the wireless was turned off and hitting fn+f8 was doing nothing. I had to go into start-->all programs-->toshiba-->toshiba utilities and click 'restart flash cards'. This now allows for the keyboard shortcuts to work again and you should see the function key's 'drop down' from the top of your screen when you hold the 'Fn' key. From here, you can either hit F8, while holding down the function key, twice to turn the wireless back on or you can navigate it with your mouse and just click on the wireless symbol and have it turn on.

Re: Wireless Communication Switch is Disabled

I hope someone sees my plea for help soon!! I'm a "low tech" lady w/ a new ToshibaSatellite C75D-B laptop w/ Windows 10 (after 8 yrs w/ Toshiba Satellite running on Vista, until it fell off the counter last week & in need of hopeful restoration). My problem is not being able to tether my iPhone like I used to (live in the sticks w/ no DSL or WiFi). I've been able to get connected, but it's very random & I cannot remember what I'm doing each different time. Today the wifi got turned off somehow. I tried the above & couldn't find the TBS file, after many attempts to even find the C drive files. I got it back on by going to start > network connections. I keep adding new my iPhone as a manual wireless source, but it never stays as an option for connecting the next time. Any input would be much appreciated!!

Re: Wireless Communication Switch is Disabled

Can you check the part number of the laptop from the label on the bottom, Tmartin? It should begin with a 'P'.

 

I have trouble tethering to my iPhone all the time, and I've found that changing the name of the phone on the iPhone itself fixes it. The hotspot name is always the phone name, so by changing the phone name, you're changing the hotspot name as well.

 

Settings > General > About > Name

 

I don't know that this is your problem of course, but this is what always works for me.
