    Hello,

    I have updatet my Toshiba Satellite L500-20X to Windows 8.
    Unfortunately, since this update my WLAN Switch no longer works. All function keys work to F7, only F8 (WLAN switch) and F9 (touchpad) no longer work.

    What can I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards
    Klaus

    Satellite L500 is not Win 8 upgrade supported… so I think the problem is a missing driver or software…

    As far as I know in order to use the FN buttons the Value Added Package for Win 8 needs to be installed.
    Check other driver area for Toshiba notebook series supporting the Win 8.
    Maybe you could use the VAP released for other series.

    Hi

    Beside the Fn + F8 combination, the Wlan can be enabled and disabled in the Win 8 settings or in charm bar which appears using the combination “Windows button + C”
