    Hello folks,

    I'm having some Tecra A11-Notebooks here in our company. For our users I'm writing a batchscript which will connect to our VPN:
    1. activate wireless
    2. change proxy settings
    3. connect umts
    4. start Internet Explorer
    5. start vpn-software

    I finished all functions expect the function to activate the wireless.
    I think of the flashcard-function for wireless. You can normally activate this with Fn + F8.
    I can emulate the stroke of keys, but not the Fn-Key as it won't send a keycode.

    Application resonsible for Flashcards is the TCrdMain.exe, located at C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\FlashCards.
    Is there a way to activate the Wireless-Function with a kind of switch to TCrdMain.exe or does some other program exist to enable the wireless-function?

    If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask me.

    Kinf regards,
    Timo

    Hi salmen,

    There is no batch for activating the FN keys. This can only be done with FN+F8 key combination and Flash Cards Support Utility.

    But why wireless must always be enabled? I think the easiest way is if WLAN connection is always on.
    Otherwise I would be no problem pressing FN+F8Ö. Isnít it ;)

    Hi Xardas,

    the problem i, that Wireless is disabled after every reboot the system (Win7 Pro, x64).
    I wrote the batch-file for my users, to make everything a little easier.
    The hardest problem is everytime to explain how to enable Wireless. Most users don't get it, as it's to difficult (Press and hold Fn-Key, press F8-Key several times (4 or 5 times, as not all A11 have the same system configuration.)).

    Hey,

    > the problem i, that Wireless is disabled after every reboot the system (Win7 Pro, x64).
    Why is WLAN disabled after every reboot? Does this happen automatically?

    It's not just WLAN, Bluetooth and UMTS/WWAN is also not "ON".
    This is automatically after every reboot, I think this is configuration issue, but I haven't found a way to solve that.

    Hi

    I cannot help you with the batch file but in my case the WLan is always enabled even if the notebook reboots.
    If I enable the WLan using FN + F8 then after notebook reboots this function is still enabled and notebook connects automatically to my WLan at home.

    Note; some Tecra A11 are equipped with an WLan communication switch. This switch needs to be ON in order to enable Wlan!

    Hey,

    Do you use the preinstalled Windows version from Toshiba or did you install or own version?
