What is the model number of the Toshiba. Is there a yellow exclamation mark next to the wireless adapter in Device Manager?

i just unplugged my wireless usb drive, and went to check the built in one, and now it's working.. I spent 3 hours last night messing with it before I gave up, and just installed the one for my pc on this and now it works... lol I'm guessing one of the 180 updates must of installed the driver for it to work?

If you installed optional updates then yes, you probably downloaded and installed the wireless driver.
