Specs: Windows 7, 1GB

Hello everyone it has been about a year that I have bough TOSHIBA satellite C660 laptop. I used Broadband to connect to the internet at my home and now I am at collage.
We have Wireless connection facility in our collage. All my friends can access to wireless but I cannot. Please anyone help me to connect to wi fi in my laptop.
I tried to power on the wireless by pressing FN+F8 together but at network connection it displays as No connection is available.
Secondly I checked the device manager and under Network adapters there is only three driver Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network), Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TSI) and Realtek PCIe FE Family Controlleer are working.
I also checked the driver of this PC and found one folder named WLAN_B and even did the setup but still not working. Please any one help me with some steps, I am using windows 7 Professional and 64 bit of OS.
Thank You

First you need to make sure that you have installed correct wireless adapter driver on your laptop. If you have not done it, go to this Toshiba website to locate and download wireless adapter driver.

After that you need to activate the wireless adapter by turning on the wireless button, press Alt+F2 or other keys on the laptop. Read the laptop manual on how to activate the wireless adapter on laptop if you are not sure.

If you are new to this, check out this wireless adapter configuration in Windows 7 article to help you.

Hope this helps.
