    Hi,

    I installed a real Win 7 / 64 professional full version on my Sat Pro L550-199, PSLW9E. Now I can't switch on my WLAN. The big FN-bottons doesn't exist. I tried lots of driver I found on the Toshiba Support page.
    Whitch is the right, or is Win 7 / 64 professional not supported with WLAN?
    How I can switch on WLAN without the FN-Key?

    Lenny

    Hi

    To enable the WLan you have to install the Wlan driver firstly.
    Is the Wlan card recognized properly in device manager?
    If not, install the compatible WLan driver; As far as I know the WLan card is Realtek 802.11bgn RTL8191SE

    Secondly after the Wlan card was recognized properly, you have to install the VAP (value added package) and Flash card support utility!
    Both tools are needed to get FN buttons working and to switch WLan using Fn + F8!

    Hi Lenny-27-7,

    Is your WLAN card installed properly in device manager? It must be listed under network devices without yellow exclamation marks. So you can make sure that WLAN card is installed.

    For all FN keys you have to install Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility. Both tools can be downloaded on official Toshiba page where you can find the WLAN driver too:
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

    If you have installed everything you can start with WLAN configuration :)

    Hey, cool! This was helpful: the flash card utility was missing.
    Where I could know, if I need a flash card utility to use the WLAN feature... ;-)

    Thanks for help!
