|Satellite A660-18N - Solution for disabled WLAN switch |
Posted: 13-Apr-2011 15:31
I have at last solved this annoying issue, my laptop is a Satellite A660-18N
Out of the box it just would not connect to wireless networking. With the Fn-F8 key combination reporting: "Wireless communitcation is disabled, please turn on the wireless communication switch"
Of course there is no such switch, just the FN-F8 Combination key press. Having tried various forums, and tech support, I solved the problem my self.
The solution is:
Go to the folder on your c drive "Program files\Toshiba\TBS. Then scroll down the list of program files and double click on the file named TBSWireless.exe and hey presto, the wireless communication will turn on (Amber Light will come on on the front bottom right panel of the computer). From now on the FN-F8 Key combination will turn it on and of.
