I bought my notebook a year and a half ago. I had wireless connection by the moment I opened my notebook.

1 year ago the light that indicates wireless connection used to flash. Now it doesnít and the system cannot find any wireless networks around, though I know there are at list 3.
I tried to look for new drivers, but the thing is that I donít know which one to download.
The help index did not help me because it did not have any refferance on Vista home premium 32 bit.

I donít know how to identify the built-in Wireless LAN Adapter model.
Can anyone help me please?

And another thing...shouldn't Toshiba tempro have informed me about new wireless updates?

Thank you in advance

Maybe the Wireless switch is turned off?

Look for a switch at the front or side of the laptop.

It sounds like that your WLAN is not enabled. Have you checked this?
You can disable and enable WLAN with the switch on the notebook and by pressing FN+F8.

If it doesnít work you should try to install the newest WLAN driver. Look on the Toshiba website:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

As far as I know the notebook is equipped with a Realtek WLAN card.

I would have been a fool not to check the switch, but thanks for replaying

Hey titamou

Can you use WLAN now or not?
Do you still need some assistance about it?
