Satellite A100-529: How can I enable the wireless network adapter

Hi all!

I'm new here, but I want to know how can I activate the wireless network device. On my Toshiba Satellite A100-529 keyboard is a Fn key that must be pressed with the F8 key to turn on the wireless network device. I did, but it does not work.

What can I do to turn on my wireless device?
Thank you!


You are right. The FN + F8 key combination should be used to switch to the WLan card.

But look, man. Have you checked if your laptop supports wireless network card?
I think it does not support the minPCI wireless network card and the card does not exist!

That's why the WLan card cannot be activated :) you know ;)

    According to HP Partsurfer, your lapotp came with Atheros AR9565 802.11bgn 1 x 1 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 adapter combination WLAN. Also, your laptop came with FreeDos and I guess currently installed Windows 8 64 bit OS, I am correct?

    Please download, save & install the Dirver and restart the system, check if the wireless works.

    This happens each and every time I turn on my laptop with the wireless adapter ON.

    Once again; Your WLan router restarts (reboots) when you turn on the WLan on the A100 Satellite Map. Am I wrong?

    Well, it's strange, but to be honest I n t see a problem with the laptop but with the router. I would recommend controlled again the unique WLan router configuration.

  • Cannot enable the wireless network adapter

    Hi all

    I have an old Dell Inspiron 1564 of 5 months with a Wireless 1397 WLAN Dell card. I had a few difficulties to connect to my wireless router, and as a last attempt to make it work, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver for my wireless card, using a new download of the latest version from the Dell support site.

    The driver seems to install fine and when I look at the card wireless in the Device Manager, it is enabled, but in "control configuration\reseau and Internet\Network connections" (which are accessible through the Network and Sharing Center), it is grey and says people with reduced mobility.

    When I click on activate in there, a small window opens saying "Activation", then after a few seconds, he says "Enabled" then disappears. However, the adapter remains disabled in Center of N/W & sharing and is not detected by Windows.

    I tried to reinstall the driver to install Dell drivers, as well as automatic windows driver search and no work. I also tried to do a system restore, but this does not (cannot finish on any of the restore points).

    I also spent 1.5 hours on the phone with Dell support and their final advice was to format and reinstall Windows.

    The same question is reported here and here, with no resolution apparent. Can anyone offer any advice I've already tried? Thank you!

    More details:
    -I am running Win 7 Pro.
    -Wired networking and internet connection works fine
    -J' have Zone Alarm and Avast Anti virus and I tried to disable both without success

    The same problem has been posted by other here, here, hereand here. It seems to happen with different brands of cards from NW.


    Thanks for the reply. Actually, I got my wireless works today. The steps are, keeping in mind the stuff that I had already tried as stated in my original post:

    -Uninstalled Zone Alarm and Avast Antivirus.
    -Restarted mode without failure.
    -Uninstalled the Driver 1397 WLAN Device Manager.
    -Manager of uninstalled Dell Wireless cards Control Panel > programs.
    -Restarted in Mode safe again.
    -Reinstalled last bouquet of 1397 driver Dell (R237742.exe)
    -Rebooted in safe mode again to verify that the adapter was showing less active in Safe Mode, which it was.
    -Restarted normally to find the list is activated.

    Now I'm right back to where I was before, not being able to connect to my router, but I do not suspect my computer or my card wireless for the moment because I have four wireless devices in the House (this new Dell laptop, another 4 years Dell laptop, an 8 - month, Sony VAIO and a 6 - month old iPhone 3 g). All of these devices, the one that connects to my router is the Sony, so I think I have as well the router problems. I'll probably start another thread on the subject, just to keep this central thread.

    So to summarize, for anyone having the issue where your wireless card is showing disabled in Network Center and share and right click Activate this doesn't even after reinstalling the drivers the most recent, I would recommend to explore two options:
    -Disabling or uninstalling Antivirus software or firewall
    -Uninstall and reinstall the drivers Safe Mode Wireless
    If you are interested in reducing the problem a little, I recommend you to try these separately, probably the SafeMode option first.

  • Satellite M645-S4070 - unable to connect to the wireless network

    Hello. I have a Toshiba Satellite M645-S4070.

    Lately, I have no problem connecting to networks wireless in my office. Until this morning when I start my laptop, I can't connect to the internet more. I already use a recovery disk to check if I can solve the problem but nothing is. When it connects to the LAN it runs.

    Thank you.


    The wireless network adapter is listed correctly in the Device Manager? It is maybe just disabled, and you can enable/disable using FN + F9 key combination.

    You should write more details not connection might mean everything, so first of all, that you should check if the wireless network adapter is recognized and activated correctly.

  • Satellite Pro U400 - How can I get the native screen resolution for external monitor?

    I have a samsung syncmaster external screen connected to a Satellite Pro U400.

    The resolution of the screen goes up to 1280 etc. but the minimum samsung is 1440 x 920 (ish I forgot).
    How can I get the samsung to display full screen expanded to save my eyes of the realativively small screen internal?


    Have you tried to update the display on your laptop driver? Check the Toshiba site for an update: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    In addition, it would be interesting to know if you are running the factory settings or you have installed your own version of Windows?
    And what operating system are you using? Have you installed all Windows updates?

    For external LCD, monitors, you must set the screen refresh rate of 60 Hz.
    And if you want to change the resolution of the screen, you must select the second monitor in the graphics options on Windows.

  • Satellite A200-1AE: How can I configure the settings of buttons Dual Mode Pad?


    I recently bought a Satellite A200-1AE. I tried to configure the default first button on my touch pad (lower left) so that I can fire up MSWord, but it did not work.

    Now every time I have set the mode button and press this button, that nothing not to pass - I lost practically this button.

    My question is how can I configure the mode button on the touch pad settings? Even if I was able to start a program by using the 3 buttons how can I modify these programs?

    Thanks for your help!

    p.s. I read the extended version of the manual for my laptop. There is no explanation of my problem - it says I should look "Synaptics Dual Mode Pad properties.

    I don't know where are these properties.


    It s is not so difficult as you think, the properties of the synaptics are in the "mouse properties" of your "Control Panel" of windows. When you reach the 'mouse', then click on the "Advanced" tab and you should find a button 'Advanced functionality settings'.
    It could be that the button is not named as mine, but it must be identical.
    After clicking on it, you should look for this 'easy' Launcher in one of the tabs.

    I think that you will make it, but I'd like some feedback from you.

  • Satellite P300D 10V - how can I update the display driver?

    I have a Satellite P300D 10V and there ATI radeon hd 3xxx series display panel. I bought Starcraft 2 and there was an error message: that the display driver is outdated.

    I went on They say I have to get the driver from Toshiba. I went to Toshiba, had the driver. When you try to install it says no components to install. I uninstalled the ati driver and tried again. The same thing.

    Now I don't have driver for the graphics card. How can I install the driver?

    Help, please!


    This means that you have uninstalled the old display driver, but now, you are not able to install the latest version of Toshiba?
    Well, what OS do you have?

    Before installing the new display driver, you should decompress all the files. Then run the setup.exe file.
    If you get the same error message, try to install the driver through the Device Manager.
