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 - Wireless Lan cannot be activated.

    All afternoon - I have just my hands on a Satellite Pro 6100 and am impressed to bits with it.
    The only thing that is bothering me is put on the wireless LAN doesn't work. Here is what I tried:

    (1) use the switch on the left side of the laptop - push back for "wireless WE"-no led or an indicator.
    (2) use the FN and F8 for the shortcut - key no joy.
    (3) install all the drivers available.

    It is to have no chance at all. I currently have Windows XP SP2 on board and have lost count of the restarts. I looked at the page update SP2 and found a registry setting, but that does not change. I'm pretty sure that there is a wireless card installed - I found the antenna, but I would appreciate some advice please if anyone has experience this, or is somewhat an expert at this.

    Thanks in advance to you all,.

    Select this option.

    It worked before or since when did that happen?
    You could take a look at the Device Manager if the wlan device is entered correctly without no exclamation point.
    Correctly installed all the drivers and updated? Maybe a BIOS update can help.

    Of course, the laptop was equipped with wlan? Not all 6100 built in wlan.

  • Function keys do not work on Satellite Pro 6100


    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 running on Windows XP SP2.
    I had a slight problem with the shortcut keyboard/function keys. When I press the FN + F5 (display output) nothing happens.
    I fixed the wireless FN + F8 combination now. The FN + F5 again will not work. I installed the common modules and wireless hotkey utility
    [/ Edit]
    I installed the shortened program from Toshiba, but that won't help.

    Anyone have a tip or something?

    Please install Toshiba Hotkey for - 02 worm. display devices and test the combination of keys FN + F5 again.

  • How to access the Satellite Pro 6100 wireless network card?

    I'm cleaning a Satellite Pro 6100 for a customer and noticed that it has built in wireless card (something they didn't know). However, I just can't work out how to access. I pushed the little switch on the side backwardsa and I rocked forward, Fn + F8 and everything else I can think. But nothing happens.

    I even found the Switch Device Network utility, but that is only to show the LAN card.

    Any ideas?

    First of all please check if Device Manager in the laptop has an integrated WiFi card. The switch WLan available on the website of the laptop does not. Laptops are delivered with different specifications, and the WLan card is optional.

    I think that the WLan card is not installed in your laptop and so you cannot use it.

  • 2 GB card SD not recognized in Satellite Pro 6100


    I got a new 2 GB SD card passenger high speed. When I insert into the slot of my Satellite Pro 6100 SD card, I see in the list of the Explorer, the new drive, but when I click it, it says: "Please insert card".

    The card works fine in my Pocket PC.

    What can I do? What is the size limit of card for the SD-Card-Reader inbuild?

    Any help is appreciated!
    Thank you!

    At the point where Satellite Pro has been offered, there was no 2 GB SD card and card reader has been tested with available maps only. If you're lucky, 1 GB card can be readable.

    I think you this card works fine in the other device. There is absolutely no problem with the card itself but old material or even driver for the card reader.

    Maybe in the next few days, someone will point out what card can be used with SP 6100.

  • Not detected in satellite pro 6000 integrated wireless card


    my company has two satellite pro 6000 with wifi built-in.
    I'm sure that when we have received laptops led wifi turn properly when the wifi switch is activated.
    Since we had no wifi, never bothered us check.
    Now, it seems that the card is not detected, it does not appear in Device Manager.
    Runing xp SP2.


    Hi Fred

    Y at - it the same problem with two laptops?

    Have you tried to start the Hardware Wizard? If the card is there it will be shown, and if the card will not be detected that it is possible that this card has been removed.

    Check it out.

  • Data satellite Pro 6100 wireless switch does not

    I just rebuilt my 6100 with xp professional, but now will not turn my switch wireless on! Which means that I can not get the Wi - Fi connection and I can't install the bluetooth drivers... anyone have any ideas?


    What switch do you mean? Do you mean the switch on the side of the laptop or the FN F8 key combination?
    Usually after the operating system installation, you will need to install the WLan card driver and the FN keys to use the FN combination.
    Check Device Manager if the wireless network card is installed correctly.
    If you need drivers Toshiba then please visit the Toshiba driver page.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 Wireless does not work after restoring from HARD drive

    After that restore disks for installing a new HD and use and to update XP sp2, the Wireless does not work and if the card is installed XP hangs then works in fits and starts. If the card not in place, not bad at all.

    Booting from a Linux CD, the card works perfectly! I assume that the driver is the problem. The wireless card is the original, an Agere MPC13A-20/R, with Toshiba p/n PA317U-1MPC.

    I have found some drivers Agere, but am not sure

    (1) if they are correct
    (2) how to install since the machine works in a way limited with the card in place.

    Any advice?


    I checked the page of the pilot and the only available for Windows XP WLan driver is the driver of v.1.11.108 Agere.

    (1) just try to install this driver. If the driver is not correct or is not compatible, then windows will not install the driver and you will receive a notification. You just have to try

    (2) generally you may reinstall the driver from the Device Manager. Open network controller tree, and then you can reinstall the driver.

    But this is only possible if the windows started successfully

    PS: Have you checked the information of Microsoft Windows XP SP2 update on the page of the Toshiba driver.
    I discovered that you need to update several utilities if you have installed SP2 on this laptop.

  • Hard drive not detected on Satellite Pro 4270

    I took out the 2 "5 HDD of my SP4270 to transfer data to my PC via an EIDE 5 3" 5-2"adapter, HD has been detected by the bios of my PC and the transfer was successful.
    Then I reinserted the Bay 2 "5 for laptop from my hard drive, but I get the message"Insert system disk in drive.".
    I checked the boot priority in the setup and it shows a HDD-> CD-> sequence FDD.
    In the DISKS to bios section, I see HDD = IDE (1F0H/IRQ14) primary.

    I extracted and reinsert the disc again, hard, but without result.
    What could be the problem?


    It is not easy to say what is happening here. Please when you pull it out HARD drive remove the connection of the power supply and the battery first.

    Check all the pins on the HARD drive. I hope they are all okay.
    Try to enter the HARD disk using the disk boot or applications in MS-DOS mode. If there is no success there is a hardware problem.

  • AccuPoint does not work on Satellite Pro 6100

    AccuPoint suddenly passes only the pointer on the screen from left to right, but not up and down. What do I need to do to make it work again properly?

    In this case, you will need to send the machine to an authorized service partner, because this problem is definitely related material. I don't know if it s the keyboard or the motherboard, but one of them should he be.

    Unfortunately you can not do something by yourself. You can only click [HERE: 000000871] to find the nearest service partner in your country and ask them for a checkup of material or a repair.


  • 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?

  • A Satellite Pro 6100 graphics card does not work correctly


    I have a Satellite Pro 6100 (PS610E - 02c 60-GR) 1.7 Ghz, 256 MB, 40 GB, 15XT and a Geforce4 420 Go (32 MB) graphic card. Until yesterday it was working properly. Now, there are colors on the screen and there was a blue screen a few times, which says something about my graphics card (it disappeared from fast read).
    I uninstalled the old driver and reinstalled twice. Nothing has changed. Also I tried with an external monitor, but there wasn't any change, too.

    Now my questions:
    1. is it possible to change the graphics card (in particular, can I do it alone without a technician)?
    2. How can I do this, is there some tutorials, especially for my laptop?
    3. an another Geforce4, but for example a Geforce4 440 Go with 64 MB of RAM would fit in my notebook?

    I thank very you much in advance!

    Hi Lukas

    The led flashes as it provides a microcode error!
    This is especially if the malfunction of hardware has been detected.
    I presume that the replacement of the graphics card is the reason!

    As in previous discussions suggested the replacement of the graphics card is NOT possible. You don't believe!
    Looks like that the BIOS cannot handle this new graphics chip.

  • 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 Modem does not - No Dial Tone


    I'm in terrible trouble. I have a big meeting Friday and discovered that the internal modem on my Satellite Pro 6100 does not work. I downloaded the drivers of software Modem since the support site, and the installation seemed to go OK. There are no conflicts listed in the Device Manager, and when I query the modem to in the properties of the modem (from the control panel), it seems question OK too, but...


    I don't know that it is connected to my phone OK. Instead of a tone, I hear a loud hum, with a series of clicks. I can't hear being composed either DTMF tones, even when I disable "wait for dial tone. This behavior is the same if the modem is connected to the phone line.

    I have a big rally Friday and will need this modem to work... any help would be much appreciated...

    Thank you


    that doesn't sound so good!

    The measure where I read that your ad you´ve checked your system almost all.

    Right on the thing, have you installed a firewall or other programs to check system that denied access to the modem?

    It is also ok, you should let check your laptop on a faulty Modem.

    Good bye

  • 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.
