Satellite 3000-514: how to enable the WLan Intel 2200BG material button


I have a Toshiba Satellite 3000 514 and a WLan Mini - PCI Intel Centrino card. (Provided? � ? ® PRO/Wireless 2200BG) running win - XP and Ubuntu.

Is there a solution to work around the problem, the wlan software wants to push me a hardware button to turn on wireless lan, that my laptop is enough?

In a German forum, that someone talked to solve the problem by using the 'easy', a program I already downloaded from Toshiba.
But you can only choose the .exe files to be connected to a button. Is there a .exe file to make the software think that I pushed that no wlan-hardwarebutton existion?

* sigh * Help!

Thanks in advance. Sorry for my bad English.


delicate sounds. I have no software solution for you, but I have another solution for you.

Since you're a German guy, you can check/read this:

It s a card atheros as I have in my Tecra 9100. So, I had a lot of problems with the card intel since they require a full work centrino
platform to work and so most of these cards are 'material' switch (in your case a button) to work.

With the card atheros Don t you have these problems with switch/button since they work at all times without the need for switches or buttons.
The downside is that you can't turn off the map for energy saving purposes.

So I hope that I could help you. Would appreciate some comments. :)

Nice weekend.

Welcome them

  • Satellite Pro L40 - how to enable the WLan using ConfigFree

    Can you help me?

    My English is bad I do not end.

    The question is:
    My computer is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L40 and I use the ConfigFree for the wireless, but it seems that the WiFi network is disabled.

    Help please!
    I want to know what's wrong

    Thank you!!


    Your wireless network card is recognized correctly in the Device Manager, or you may notice a yellow exclamation?
    Her check first because otherwise, you can get the WLAN to work.

    In addition, you can activate WLAN with the material on the laptop switch which must be set on and the FN + F8 key combination.
    Check it!

    After this Free Config should find your WLAN router if you are in the range of that.

    I already downloaded some drivers and utilities and I can not activate the card, the shortcut key does not work and there is not another switch, software does not work either

    Any help will be welcome
    Thank you


    Hmm. Win 7 drivers are not yet out, but I found some beta readers on the Toshiba page we:

    Maybe you will find some Win 7 drivers for series L500/505

    Otherwise I would recommend you to check if you can activate the WLan in Device Manager-> properties-> Advanced tab Wlan card

    There are a few additional options, that maybe the WiFi we / off would be there also.

    Why is this?
    I just got my Toshiba Satellite A205-S5843 today and I would like to get on the internet at my cousins House but they have wireless and is not letting me do.

    Why is my wireless adapter is disabled and how can I fix this problem?

    I have a laptop Toshiba A205-S5843.
    Thank you.


    Hi Justin

    The wireless network card can be activated very easily!
    The WLan switch on the front panel should be lit. If the switch is turned on the led WLan should be on.
    In addition, he must use the FN + F8 key combination to turn on the wireless network.
    Then start configuring WLan using the right SSID and the encryption on the right key.
    That s all ;)


  • Satellite 2410-504: how to use and how to enable the WLan

    Hi all

    I'm new to this forum and trying to get help on the use of wireless LAN. I have no model for laptop Toshiba Satellite series S2410-504. PS241E-5G7U9-EN. According to the manual, I have TypeIIIA Mini-PCI Wireless LAN.

    I try to use the same to connect to SKY broadband, but unable to do so. In "Network connections", I see only TWO connections:
    1. network adapter 1394 - that I guess in the forewire network
    2 Ethernet LAN - which is the wired network

    I also tried using the Fn + F8 key combination to see if it is enabled, but no luck. Switch on the side of the laptop is in the position "On". Any help would be grateful and thanks in advance.

    Kind regards


    I think you have misunderstood something.
    > According to the manual, I should have Mini-PCI Type III a wireless LAN.

    The WiFi network is an option on this laptop. This means that your laptop could be delivered with or without this WLan card.
    If Device Manager does not display the minPCI LAN card, then you laptop does not support this card! He s just not installed!

    At the bottom of the unit, you should find the WLan minPCI slot. It should be placed near the memory slot.
    The slot must be fixed by a screw.
    However, if the laptop has no installed wireless network adapter you can upgrade the unit with a compatible.

    I found a compatible Wlan card. It s the (PA3212U-1MPC) wireless LAN card number

    I tried the Fn + F8, but it says it all, this is the 'wireless communication is disabled. Please activate the wireless communication switch. There is no switch that I see. The device driver is enabled and active. I even tried to reinstall the driver. The user manual makes no reference to a process physical either pass.

    Hey Buddy,

    On Satellite P750, there is a tactile button between the screen and the keyboard to turn the WLAN function. The second button on the left (symbol of the antenna), you need to press to activate the WLAN.

    Also, check the BIOS. As I know most notebook contains an option for the WLAN that must be set to active.

  • Satellite L350D-213 - how to use the WLAN?

    My mother & father has bought a laptop last week and are having problems with the connection to the sky broadband. Sky Broadband is a netgear router, which has wireless capability.

    My question is how does broadband on your laptop? They need to get a wireless dongle to use, my experience with laptops is minimal.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Hey Buddy,

    I think you should read the user manual. There you can find all the necessary information using the laptop.

    To use the WLAN functionality, you must enable this feature using the WLAN hardware switch on the laptop and the FN + F8 key combination. Check it!

    If the WIFI is enabled, check the configuration of TCP/IP. It s according to your router if you use DHCP or a static IP address.
    In addition you must disable management feature in the management of WLAN power supply.

    My son has a laptop and gets a good connection anywhere in the House and even outside.

    He thinks I have a dodgy wireless adapter, this could be the problem?
    Can I fix it myself?

    Maybe download a new driver?
    Any suggestions would be much apreciated.



    Your ad is not really useful.
    I mean that there is no detail about your problem
    You should first check if the laptop supports the wireless network card.
    This can be done in the Device Manager.

    Usually the WLan card must appear in Manager devices-> network adapters.
    If it s are not it is that the WLan card is not built in or the driver WLan is not installed. If the WLan driver is not installed then you should see yellow exclamation (or unknown device).

    But if the wireless network adapter is listed correctly then you should check if the WLan notebooks have been enabled. In order to activate the WLan you have to press FN + F8 and you put the switch on IT until the small LED flash.

    Finally, to configure the WiFi connection (right name WLan, encryption settings, etc...)

  • Satellite A505-S69803 - how to replace the Wlan card?

    Before we get into the details of my problem.
    I pulled out a DSL product, set up hundreds of wireless routers. I was a service technician laptop for 3 years for laptops as well.

    I picked up a Toshiba, the price is right and so far cause I learn that you get what you pay for.

    This machine has a realtek wireless card.
    As everyone knows... Realtek is cheaply made of defective material.

    Toshiba refuses to replace this card.
    I need to buy a new card for this laptop.
    I need to know if it's a mini-pci, half height mini-pci, pci-e, or mini-pci-e card.
    I plan to get a processor intel for her.

    I also need that white papers for I can remove the wrist cushion / bezel on this camera. They have guides to the user, but unlike other manufacturers of portable, do not have their service manuals available.

    Any help to get to this laptop fixed would be appreciated. He is soon out of town with my parents.

    Hi vlad2,.
    Realtek is also known to run perfekt Linux - this indicates that the material is not so bad as you think...

    Toshiba sells such unity as specified - if you want to have some other hardware choose another model of laptop computer or replace the wlan by yourself...
    in case of doubt, that the card is in it, open the door under which lies the card - for a tech notebook pro like you no big deal - and check it out.
    replace this part should be easy...

    to respond to your complaint: + "Toshiba will not replace this card." +
    course than that! If this works, there is no need to replace and you will always get the same thing as the spare part because this model comes with sound...

    I don't like to repeat myself, but a mobile technician should be able to take the machine apart (you will ruin your warranty with this action)
    Disassemble the caches is a thing of partner service - not for customers...

    by the way: "I learn that you get what you pay for" + means what you see is what you get, to spend more money is not bad at all...

  • Tecra 9100: How to enable the WLan switch?

    Hi, new here.

    I have trouble getting the Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card to work.

    I installed all the latest drivers on the Toshiba site.

    It is activated in windows and the switch on the front of the laptop is on. 6 led is off.
    The FN + F8/Wireless icon button does nothing.

    Windows repeat me any available wireless network.

    When I try and turn on the wireless card switch network device software Toshiba it just says, 'wireless communication is disabled. Please activate the wireless communication switch. »

    The switch on the front would be tired?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you



    I guess the 6 LED's LED wireless card.

    This LED should shine when you activate the WLan switch on the side of the laptop.
    Looks like you have not activated the WLan switch.
    I put t know exactly where the WLan switch, but you should check the front of the laptop near the headphone jack.

    Check it out.
    Then the LED should shine and you must activate the antenna with the FN + F8 key combination.
