toshiba p745 - s4320 wireless switch as well as all other touch switches on the top keyboard strip

I am having the same Problem with my Toshiba P745 - s4320 model. I cannot connect to the internet because it says my hardware radio switch has been turned off.  The top touch strip above the keyboard on the laptop does not work at all on any of they fuctions (like the light on some keyboard keys),  The hardware radio switch is located on this strip, and therefore I cannot touch it to turn it back on.  I also tried the FN key with F8 to turn it on, but all I get is "Internet Connection Disabled, please turn on your hardware radio switch".  So, is somewhere in the software I can go to enable it? Please help

 

I already tried all the TVA packages, and not luck so far

"I already tried all the TVA packages, and not luck so far".

 

I assume you mean you have reinstalled TVAP.  Now try a System Reset which frequently fixes the problem you are having. Turn off computer. Remove all attachments and battery. Press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds.  Attach Power and insert battery.  Start computer and tap F2 at the Toshiba splash screen to get in BIOS.  Press F9 to setup system defaults. Answer Yes. Press F10 to Save Configuration Changes and Exit.  Answer Yes to complete the process.  The computer will restart.

I've read here that executing this file sometimes works miracles.

 

   C:\Program Files\Toshiba\TBS\TBSWireless.exe

Try this.  Go to Computer/C: Drive/Program Files/TBS/TBSWireless.exe.  Toggling the .exe file should turn the wireless on/off.
