C309 - no bars at all (lost wireless communication).

Hello.  I have a c309g-m, and it works fine without thread for some time.  Now, all of a sudden the wireless function stopped working.  It shows no bars on the interface of the printer and can not find any wireless router.

In my apartment's wireless router works fine.  I have reset the setting on the default printer, and then after that who does nothing, I set the default printer wireless (no dice).  Depending on the printer, the wireless Radio is on.  I unplugged and left over night, plugged it again and no luck.  When I use the wireless configuration wizard, it seeks and research and now can't find anything.  In the past he would not only find my network, but some of my neighbors also.

Anyone got any ideas how I can fix this problem?

Thank you



Unless its under warranty is not worth fixing.  You'd spend more than buying a new printer.  The Ethernet port is useful in this respect (likely).  You could just plug it into the back of the wireless router and get the same functionality that the wireless.

  • Re: How to turn off the led for wireless communication

    I bought BN100 just a couple of days. By far, I am very happy with it. BUT there is one thing that bothers me. The lamp which indicates the wireless communication, is on all the time. I can't turn off. The lamp right under the touch pad in the middle.

    My question: how TO MAKE LIGHT DYE?

    I read the manual, but I have not found a way to do it!

  • Satellite L600: How can I turn off the Wireless Communication switch?

    Hello! Would be very grateful for any help... After struggling for 3 months that I finally registered here in the hope of getting help.

    I have a new Satellite L600 / Win7 Home Premium.
    My question is that I don't know where the wireless switch is to turn off COMPLETELY wireless.

    Whenever I start the wireless (orange) light turns on automatically.
    I have to wait until finish and turn off manually by Fn + F8.

    When I opened ConfigFree (or doctor of connectivity), the diagnosis on the left bottom says [STATUS"switch of Wireless Communication: WE]
    This tells me that the main switch is somehow always THERE.

    Twice I called Toshiba and they couldn't find it either.
    They said that the new versions of the BIOS does not...? And for this model, there is no physical switch built on the PC itself.

    I have looked everywhere and did the following:

    (1) disable the adapter in Device Manager.
    (2) in HWSetup, where there used to be an option to click on the switch wireless off, he's gone.
    (3) I went into the BIOS setup and could find nothing remotely related to without wireless/bluetooth to switch.

    I wonder why there is a wireless laptop with light permanently? But if it is enabled, there must be a way to turn it off. Press Fn + F8 every time at startup is not a long-term solution because the risk is that I'll forget someday).

    My last laptop was hacked until it's an absolute priority that I know how to disable all wireless functions. So even if I have to do through the commands, I'll try it. In addition, I do not know if anyone else experience the same thing with this model, or is it a default of my particular PC?

    Any help or even experience will be much appreciated, thank you.

    I disabled the card in the Device Manager.

    When I opened ConfigFree, connectivity doctor tells me the Wireless Communication switch: WE

    > My question is that I cannot find where the wireless switch is to turn off COMPLETELY wireless.

    There is no hardware switch that would allow to enable or disable the WiFi network.
    WLan can be turned on and off using the FN + F8 key combination.

    > When I open ConfigFree (or doctor of connectivity), the diagnosis on the left bottom says STATUS\ ' Wireless Communication switch: on it tells me the main switch is somehow always WE.

    What is the status of the WLAN if you check in network connections?
    The WiFi network is always on?
    If not then the WiFi connection turned off and I wouldn't be worried by the fact that ConfigFree says that it s THERE.

    Of course, you can disable the wireless network adapter in Device Manager. Just mark the Wlan card under network adapters and turn off your device. But believe me; It s enough to do using FN + F8 ;)

  • How do activate you the wireless communication switch?

    I use a Toshiba Satellite L755 (laptop) and my wireless communication switch is turned off, I tried the system restore, but nothing works.

    My wireless communication switch any lights I tried to use the fn + f8 key is not working.

    The thing is that I use to display the list of networks that would normally connect to the internet, but they disappeared when my wireless communication switch happened to turn off.

    The only way now to gain internet access is to connect my laptop to my router (cisco linksys 1000) which is not what I wanted to do when I got my laptop.

    Please someone help me!

    I thank you in advance to anyone who can help me.

    Either way, I'm using a Windows 7 Home Premium.

  • How to disable tabs in the title bar for all users?

    I want to disable tabs in the title bar for all users, because the air ugly http://i57.tinypic.com/33nkm77.png
    I type in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\local-settings.js

    I loaded a new mozilla firefox after problems with the old, after that I loaded a new menu bar is all black and none of my old favourites are there? It of like the bottom of the screen is black and the options (file editing history bookmarks tools and support) are also black.


    Thanks for the reply, Yes when I disable hardware acceleration, the problem goes away.

    If I think that I put the finger on the problem of new video drivers, probably the intel hd 3000 or ATI's new drivers.

    There is this problem when I have the BIOS for the graphics card the 'dynamic' value, same problem with the latest Kazaa Codecs Pack. with this on the dynamics, there is a strange green frame at the beginning of the .mkv (DXVA) movies, if I have the value fixed, it seems normal.

    and what about the FF issue, IE9 is also same behavior with black, in this case, black menus on the home page of search engines...

    Thanks anyway

  • I have 2 imacs and a laptop computer and you want to back up all three wireless via time capsule on my existing wifi network. If we can also use the time capsule as my wifi and replace my uverse wifi, that would be great. possible?

    I have 2 imacs and a laptop computer and you want to back up all three wireless via time capsule on my existing wifi network. If we can also use the time capsule as my wifi and replace my uverse wifi, that would be great. possible?

    If you want to make sure that you will be able to get the Apple support in case of problems or questions with your backups, you must use the wireless Time Capsule to back up your Mac.

    As long as the time Capsule provides a wireless signal, you can decide who to your 'main' network, then use it wireless Uverse for "guest", or children. If you do not need the Uverse router/modem wireless at all, it is possible to turn off wireless on the device and make it work only as a support modem/router...with Uverse wired.

    At this point, you can start thinking about how you want to configure things and get back in touch if you need some advice on how to do it.  We need to know what operating system that uses the Mac that you normally use to administer the time Capsule, provide good instructions, if you need it.

  • Satellite R630 - 12G - how to turn off wireless communication?

    Whenever I start my laptop Satellite R630 12G I have to disable "wireless communication" (flashes orange when its turned on).

    How to 'OFF' by default?


    I m not Satellite R630 owner and I still use card internal WLAN but you should look into the BIOS. According to the BIOS / motherboard, you can disable WLAN.

  • Satellite L500 - lost wireless connection

    My Satellite L500 recently lost the wireless connection. I looked towards the top of the Realtek wireless device in Device Manager and it says that the device is functioning properly. I tried to use "ping" join the router, and I get "error Transmit - general failure."

    Any ideas?

    Hey Buddy,

    And now Windows recognize some WIFI networks at your fingertips? Your validation lost wireless connection isn't very useful

    You should try a WLAN driver update that you can download from the official page of Toshiba:

    If you can't find or connect to WLAN networks deactivate in the Windows of the WLAN power save mode power profiles. You will need to set for maximum performance.
