    Is there any way to turn on wireless on a Satellite L505 without the flashcard utility?
    I've upgraded to Windows 10 and flashcards will not install/work. Oddly, if I go into the bios and turn off wireless, then reboot and turn it on, it works. But after a reboot, wireless is off again and I have to go through the bios change to get it to work again.

    What I would give to have the hardware switch on this one.

    Maybe stupid question now but do you have this problems if you use stand-by or hibernation mode?
    I mean if this work don't switch your notebook off but you can often use hibernation mode.

    Some function like WLAN enable/disable are controlled by additional software and your old machine will probably not supported for Win10 so I think you will not be able to fix this.

    It's not practical to leave it on standby or otherwise. I think you are correct, though, no Win 10 support. It did work with Windows 8.1 though so I'm a little perplexed by that.

    Have you tried through the Info-Center (on the status bar)?

    I have Satellite Pro C660 and my Flash cards are not working either but I am using the Info-Center and it works fine

    Thanks for responding but what/where is the info center. Is it a Toshiba app or program? I have NO Toshiba stuff on this laptop. It was a complete clean install of Windows 10.
