No WLAN on Satellite Pro 6100 light

I have a Satellite Pro 6100. But there is no Wlan light, if I turn on the wlan switch. I did a Bios Update to 1.9, but wifi does not work.
Is it possible that the on-off wlan switch is damaged, or what could be the problem?


Did you check if the wireless card is already preinstalled on you laptop.
Have you ever used this option?

I agree with you... it of not impossible that the WLan switch on the side of the laptop is broken.

The switch allows you to activate on the motherboard and allows the WLan antenna.
If there is a hardware malfunction for example a loose contact outside help is necessary. In this case, the ASP must check the unit

  • Need help with the upgrade of the WLAN on Satellite Pro 6100 minipci card

    Hello everyone, I desperately tried to update my WIRELESS card on my laptop SP6100, since it was delivered with a card minipci wifi-b, which is not fast enough today. s standards.

    Each piece of the Toshiba official documentation mention the SP6100 has a mini-PCI type 3a slot, so can accommodate two minipci card a type 3a and 3B wifi.
    But unfortunately for me, I discovered the hard way that it is absolutely NOT the case - I was put back by a fortune by buying costs for a type3 intel minipci wifi card, which does NOT at all on the laptop.

    I spent an hour in unnecessary calls to the customer service from Toshiba, that I had to convince PCMCIA certainly isn't the same as miniPCI, and Mini - PCI cards ARE CERTAINLY replaceable by the user. She insisted that she could not be changed by the user of the system, but by toshiba themselves.

    Could someone please please advise me on the type of wifi card that are built with the SP6100 laptops? I think is it AGERE brand, in the form of WLAN minipci card. I know that it IS certainly NOT miniPCI type 3.

    Help, please! Thank you.
    And besides, every place that I tried so far appears only sell type3 miniPCI cards,
    Other types of Mini-PCI cards are available to retail customers?

    Infinite thanks!


    You must understand that your model of laptop is quite old and right now the market wasn't available standard b. I'm pretty skeptical that you will be able to use the standard WLAN with G maps due to compatibility issues. On this forum, I founded several threads that people write about the problems of upgrading older models of laptops with the new wireless network cards.

    In my opinion the best solution for you is to use a PCMCIA WLAN card. The installation should be easy and you can use the wireless network with faster data transfer adapter.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 will not turn on - flashing LED


    I have a probelem big, my Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 lights so I decided to buy a new motherboard @ ebay.

    I have to build in and all I get is an orange error code. So I decide to make me buy a testet PCB (Powerboard) on Ebay, then the same thing! Then I bought a second Geforce but the same error code! So I all exchanged but the processor and I'm ascendant to buy a second to test or do you know Whata´s evil?
    I don't think that the new parts are broken!

    The error, the code of the orange Led is 01000011 or short, long, short, short, short, short, long, long and I did not see what maybe the problem!

    Sorry for my broken English I come from Germany!
    Hope for answers and greetings



    How do you know what the flashing of led said you? You are a sort of technician? How can you know that the "blink" (long, short) are 0 and 1.
    Do you know how to assemble the circuit board and don't you know that the things you have take care? Who PCB´s that you have exchanged?
    You said:

    Hand and VGA

    but the powerpcb too? And how do you know that the PCB´s are ok? Because why someone is selling you that with the 'work' of description?

    Would appreciate some feedback from you

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not start - power light flashes


    I have a Satellite Pro 6100 when I press the power button and HDD lights up briefly then powerlight blinks.
    It seems to Flash a pattern: on (2 sec) flashes (2 seconds) then off (about 8 times)

    What he told me? No fan, no display no hardrive is active.
    Food is ok because it load battery.
    I bought it as it would be something easy to fix ideas?


    It sounds bad
    Generally, the power led will blink due to a malfunction of the equipment.
    The LED provides a microcode and only the technician can read this code.
    A common user is not able to read.

    Maybe you'll be able to read this code, but you won't find any description about the meaning of the code.
    I recommend you contact the technician in your country

    But try this:
    Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter.
    Wait severla times and then plug in the battery and plug in the AC adapter.
    If this does not help, you have aks, a complementary technician...

  • Satellite Pro 6100 has no Wlan

    Installed xp on a Satellite Pro 6100 and it has no wireless network adapter in the Device Manager to all, and it does not appear in "Found new hardware" or whatever it is.
    I downloaded the drivers, but I can't put anywhere.

    Remember that the wireless card is an option on this laptop.
    This means that some Pro 6100 was delivered with the WLan card and some does not support the minPCI wireless network card!

    If the WLan card is not listed in the Manager of devices (or as unknown under network adapters device) then the laptop was not equipped of the WLan card and so you cannot use the WLan.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - problem starting (light flashing Orange)

    On my laptop Satellite Pro 6100, seeing DC IN (first on the left) flashes orange and the laptop does nothing else (no display or sound). The light flashes for 8 times, has a long pause and then starts all over again.

    I tried a different adapter with no joy. It does the same thing if you use only the battery and if you run from the adapter without the battery.

    The only time wherever it shows a different light is when you take the battery out, put back in and hold the power button. Led Slim Select Bay (second right) briefly turns green, but it turns off and the led DC IN resumption of the orange blink.

    It seems likely that it is an internal hardware problem (power supply, motherboard, etc.). Does anyone have any ideas? And as anyone knows anywhere which lists all the different orange light codes for Toshiba laptops?

    Hi André,.

    You are right in thinking that there is a hardware failure (most likely your motherboard). Flashing codes are used by service technicians to indicate the nature of the fault and I have yet to find anywhere who publishes the real meaning of these codes.

    I think it looks like a trip to the nearest Service Agent. :-(


  • New on Satellite Pro 6100 WLAN card installed, but can not be activated

    Hi, just replaced the internal Wireless LAN card on my laptop Satellite Pro 6100. Map of yesterday and today have the same problem: I can't turn them on. They are installed properly and supposed to run in what concerns the XP drivers, but does not detect wireless network andy saying it is "disabled".

    I tried upgrading to the latest version of BIOS
    I reinstalled the latest drivers
    Toshiba network device switch sees only the Intel Pro/100 VE wired, network card, but not the card the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG.
    Direct activation of the Wireles does not produce a said connection disable, enable, trying to connect, but it fails, as if he did not see the network.

    Past and present, wireless card fail to see any network.


    Hello Martin

    This model of laptop is quite old and at that time 2200 card was not on the market. I can imagine that there is a compatibility issue.

    I think for older models of laptops, the best solution is the use of a faster but external solution in the form of PCMCIA or USB WLAN card. With the help of these cards you will not have compatibility issues.
    What do you think of this?

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - Question on WLAN adapt and mac address

    I bought a second hand of Satellite Pro 6100. It has a WiFi adapter. It is where and how do I know the macadress of the adapter?

    Thank you.


    If you are sure that this laptop was equipped with the Wlan card, and then the MAC address can be easily discovered 100%.
    You must start the console with the command: * CMD *.

    Then use the command: * ipconfig/all *.
    This would list all the details on the WLan/LAN cards installed in the laptop.
    The physical address means MAC address ;)

    This should help!

  • Signal not detected on Satellite Pro 6100 wireless

    I have two laptops Satellite Pro 6100, two of them are configured to automatically connect to our local wireless router which they both started.
    A computer is used by myself by my wife; bookmarks, email accounts and so on are different on every computer/hard drive.

    I have problems with one of the computers (mine) - the usual problem with multispindle connectors on the video boards and feeding, then I tried to use "his" computer with 'ma' machine's hard drive.

    His machine does not recognize our LAN with my hard drive installed. He came up with a new network found, but not a wireless network. Also, with this machine and my hard drive installed, can't the machine to search for wireless LANs, the icon does not appear. The switch is turned on for wireless signals and it works very well with his hard drive in it. The network is protected, and the two machines have the same id in them for connection which work fine in the original engine.

    I don't really understand this condition. Something in the bios? Something on my hard drive that is not recognized by the computer? the wrong phase of the Moon?
    Suggestions how to trouble shoot and fix this?

    Both machines are XP Pro on them, latest updates.


    Also AFAIK, Satellite Pro 6100 was equipped with different Wlan cards so if use different HDD with different driver then the Wlan card could not be detected by Windows XP.

    Check if the wireless adapter is listed in the Device Manager and recognized correctly.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 - code beep at startup

    Hi all

    Just picked up a 6100 Pro of the Satellite with a few problems.

    It lights up, he pointed out the HARD drive and I can hear the disk activity. However, the screen remains blank and a single beep can be learned after 20 sec. White screen, as I understand it, is probably the issue of Council power raging in the SP6xxx series. However, the beep I do not understand.

    I know that 2 beeps or 3 beeps is incompatibility of memory but no one knows which denotes the beep?


    Hey Buddy,

    To be honest it's not easy to say what the cause of the problem because it could be everything and Satellite Pro 6100 is old enough for laptop.

    You have two memory modules RAM? If so remove a module. Always try a module only at the same time and test it in the slot of RAM A and B. A module is may be defective or a slot.

    If this is not the case, there seems to be a problem with the motherboard or the CPU itself. If you can exchange these things, try it yourself as a repair would be too expensive for this good old classic I think.
    Second hand spare parts you can get it on eBay s worth a try! ;)

  • Satellite Pro 6100 does not recognize the single battery external power

    Whenever I have start Satellite Pro 6100 Win XP Pro with standard battery mounted and connected to the power supply computer laptop does not recognize the ext battery supply single supply and during 'start-up' goes into hibernation.

    By pressing the power on button laptops "wake up" and indicate that the battery is empty or may not even decide when completely loaded, then says connect the station even if still connected, looking under Toshiba console when it runs shows running on battery when still in the power of the ext?

    I have two batteries and both give the above symptoms even when I remove ext of laptop power always runs with power supply by battery but no light orange or green for battery.
    Any ideas?


    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.

  • Satellite Pro 6100: keys Fn does not


    Ive got a laptop Satellite Pro 6100. IM of problems using the secondary function keys (I'm not sure what they call them!). When I press the function (Fn) key, the light below the F10 button as it should, but when I press one of the brightness of i.e. F up/down buttons, nothing works!

    I had a quick glance at some of the tool and using keyboard in the Control Panel, which suggests that the driver may be incorrect, so I tried looking for an updated driver, but windows says: I have the latest version of the driver.

    Anyone else have this problem with the SP6100? Can it be fixed? If so, how?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks - Kavi.

    Even the windows said that you are using the latest drivers, you need to reinstall the drivers.
    First remove emulator utility Hotkey to display Add & Remove programs.
    Reinstall it modules common Hotkey Utility Emulator for display devices.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 stops after 15-30 minutes

    My satellite Pro 6100 Cup after 15 to 30 minutes of operation on power outlet. There is a noise and all the lights go out except orange slow flashing (power problem). I have restore by removing the power cable and wait a while.

    It will then start again. I used two different adapters and two different batteries. It also happens if work on AC with no battery in the. My suspicion is an overheat cut-out. The Sat Pro has a? Could it be clogged with dust inside (it is 5 years old)? If yes how I clean. I don't think it's a fan failure because I can hear the fan cut in. Advice much appreciated. Thank you.

    > Could it be clogged with dust inside (it is 5 years old)? If yes how I clean. I don't think it's a fan failure because I can hear the fan cut in
    I agree with you and the user SambadeAmigo. It seems like a simple problem of overheating and so the laptop automatically stops to prevent the equipment from damage

    I assume that your laptop can be enabled again after being allowed to cool. It is a common question if the cooling modules may not work properly because of the dust and debris.
    As suggested, it would be possible to remove dust using the can of compressed air.
    It should work.

  • LED flashing - need to know the Satellite Pro 6100 POST error codes

    When I tried to turn on my Satellite Pro 6100 laptop the Green DC in power light turned orange and started to blink.
    It flashes 5 times, then 3 times then repeats.

    I guess that this indicates a failure in the system, but where can I find what means this error code?


    You can read the flashing code very easily short flashing means 0 long average 1.
    Then you read the complete code back.

    Finally, the error code must be converted into HEXADECIMAL value and then a technician of the laptop could know what means this value.

    The ASP in your country should provide details of the mentioned error.

    I put t think you will be able to do anything that would bring back the laptop from the dead.

    According to your description books sends a flashing error code that appears always if a motherboard error has been detected.

    In your case only an ASP might help you.

    First, the technician would be able to read the code and then to know what part is malfunctioning.

    In the worst cases, the motherboard must be replaced; (and this could be a costly affair.
