I have a Toshiba L655D, Satellite.. I cant get the wireless receiver to turn on. The FN+F8 button is the on/off switch, no other switch on the  outside of this PC. May have deleted a program for that , but not sure.. The realtek  LAN 802.11, is working properly... All troubleshooting test results say to turn on wireless capabilities.. I can connect thru Ethernet cable... all the other F buttons are working. What's the problem?

Make sure you've installed a driver for your wireless card. You can find one here.

Yeah, I went to a Toshiba troubleshoot website. I was instructed to uninstall drivers using Device manager and restart pc to auto reinstall them.. They were reinstalled but did not fix problem...

the problem with that is your not updating your driver, your
reinstalling the old one.
Goto my computer(right click properties), device manager, network adapters, driver tab, update drivers.

I went to Toshiba tech support. Had to pay a fee, but they fix the problem along with a few others... I feel I got my money's worth, took him 2 1/2 hrs..

close this topic....
