Tecra S1: Rf Ubuntu wireless switch does not work

Hi all

I recently bought an Intel mini-PCI wifi card for my Tecra S1 under Ubuntu. It is detected without any problem, Intel provides even native drivers for Linux. However, the hardware to activate wireless switch does NOT work. According to iwconfig, the radio is off. I use the ipw2200 driver which can detect the hardware and the software rf_kill. I can enable and disable software killing RF, but kill him material stays on.

I suspect that the radio feature is disabled in the BIOS but I don't have Windows running on the laptop over to change the setting. Is it possible to access BIOS options under linux? Toshutils are not supported by the tecra because she seems to have a Phoenix BIOS.

I hope you can help!

Hello

Tecra S1 supports BIOS Toshiba you can access BIOS by pressing ESC at the beginning of the startup.
In any case I think you won't find anything in the BIOS.

If you are not able to use the switch of material on the side of the laptop then the Wlan card is not compatible or the hardware switch is malfunctioning. I would say that the card is not supported.

Maybe the insulation of the 13 pin might help please check that this son:

    Hello

    I agree with resident.
    The Wlan switch on the side of the laptop has all the drivers and it works independently of the installed software!

    The FN + F8 key combination that allows the WLan should work on if install you value added package.

    You should also check if the WLan card is set on IT in Device Manager-> properties-> Advanced tab WLan card.

    See you soon

  • Re: Satellite Pro U400 PSU41E - com wireless switch does not work after Win7

    Hello

    I did an upgrade from 32-bit Windows 7 Professional (clean install) to my SatPro this week, and almost everything is fine. I reinstalled Win7 readers listed on this site and my software with no obvious problems. I say almost because the switch for wireless on the front of the unit has stopped working.

    Previously with the switch pushed to the left of that internal map could be put off, it remains now on. The light goes out! The wireless card works OK and connect to home and office wifi networks, but I can not turn off when connected using a connection cable.

    Any thoughts on how to restore the switch function? I have looked for the readers, but cannot identify all.

    Thank you

  • Tecra A3 - Creative wireless mouse does not work

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Thank you

    Hello

    On this path, it is not easy to say what the problem is. I guess you have some software installations to your external device. Install it and it should work.

    As much I know external mouse functionality does not depend on the touchpad settings.

  • Satellite Pro L40 - wireless adapter does not work - Vista

    I recently had some problems with my laptop.
    A couple of weeks, I put in a disc of OpenSuse.
    It's not stable anything, but locked me out of my original Vista operating system.

    I reinstallled Vista Home Basic, but there are a few problems.
    Mainly, my wireless adapter does not work.

    When I flip the button to turn it on nothing happens and it is not recognized in Windows.
    I installed Atheros Driver, but still nothing happens, light is not yet.

    Any advice?

    Hello

    First check the device-> network adapters area manager
    You see the WLan card? Or the unknown device appears?

    If there is an unknown device, then the WLan driver has not been installed correctly or you tried to install a driver badly these two options are possible.

    Remember that your wireless network card? Maybe it was a Realtek WLan card?

    If it's a Realtek WLan card, try the WLan driver from the Realtek website and look for 802.11 g (RTL8187B) chip or you will simply check the page of the European driver Toshiba too the Realtek WLan driver also appeared on the Toshiba page

  • HP Pavilion g7-1365dx: wireless keyboard does not work.

    I have a combination and connected mouse microsoft wireless keyboard to my laptop.  The mouse recently 'died' and replace the batteries with new Energizer batteries did not help.  I bought a new Logitech mouse and installed the new USB connector and the mouse worked flawlessly.  However, the wireless keyboard does not work now.  If I reinstall the 'old' or the original USB, the wireless keyboard connector works fine.  The new mouse does not work with the original USB connector.  So now I have two USB connectors that are connected to the computer to make the functional keyboard and mouse.  Is there a solution to eliminate one of the USB connectors?  I realize that the brand of the mouse and keyboard are different.  This is the problem and if so can it be fixed?

    Hi ECJ-10,

    Well, you answered your question yourself. They are different products, so you need 2 USB receivers.

    The alternative is to get a replacement of microsoft mouse if it is still under warranty, they usually do.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi smithb2, welcome to the forums there.

    I saw your post on the wireless radio does not not on your model Photosmart C309.

    I did some research and came across this post in the community that seemed to have worked for others with the same problem.

    Re: Without the printer wireless radio does not

    I hope that helps!

    If troubleshooting doesn't help not solve your problem, then I would say call the HP Technical Support to see all the other possibilities for you. If you call in North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and for all other regions: click here.

  • Pavilion DV6 6c14nr: Wireless button does not work

    Has taken the plung and improved my DV6 Win10 laptop to see how it works.  Had to do a clean install, because no upgrade would not work.

    After installation, the wireless button does not work.  LED stays red all the time, and when I push it, it activates / deactivates the airplane mode.

    Check the support site HP for this PC, downloaded and installed the driver wireless Win8 button (sp59835) and it does not work. Button LED stays red.

    Searched these forums and found another driver (sp64043) from the button for Win10 wireless driver and installed it.  Still does not work.

    Information on equipment is: ACPI\HPQ6001\2 & daba3ff & 0

    The details for the wireless button said drivers this devide requires additional installation

    Unless I can get the wireless button to work, I'll be forced to go back to Win7.

    Help, please.

    UPDATED - so others find this post know what works!

    Restored image backup Win7.

    Disconnected the LAN cable and activated the wireless button.

    Win7 removed and properly installed Win10.

    Wireless button works NOW!

    So basically, if the wireless is turned off before the Win10 install, it remains disabled and then nothing will allow it.

  • MS point 5000 laser wireless mouse does not work, but scrolling and magnifying glass works

    My point of 5000 MS wireless laser mouse does not work, but work wheel Magnifier button and scroll.  What could cause this problem?  I there something wrong with the mouse or something should be cleaned?  This is the first question I had after 3 years of use.

    I have not any hardware or software changes, and the problem is constant, not specific to any application.

    I restored my system to my latest backup when the mouse was working, but it has not solved the problem.  The software update has not solved the problem.

    I installed a different mouse, which works very well. The wireless mouse does not work on another system, I assume that it's broken and I will replace it.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

  • Wireless device does not work after downgrading from Windows 7 to Windows Vista.

    Original title: wireless device does not.

    recently, I got my os from windows 7 to vista, now my wireless device does not work. I checked the Device Manager and the report shows that my network controller driver is not installed and the modem on high definition audio bus device. I tried to install it, but in vain. What should I do?

    If your computer manufacturer does not have Windows Vista drivers available, you're probably out of luck.  Without drivers for these devices will not work.
