Wireless Lan switch not working with hotkey

Q: Wireless Lan switch not working with hotkey

Hi

I have a Toshiba Satellite L25-S119 laptop, a coulpe of days ago my wireless lan would not turn on using the fn+f8 key combination. I checked the device settings and everything is working okay. I checked the bios and the LAN is enable. When I try to use the connection software it says the the wireless LAN is not turned on. (plus the light is not lite up) Does anyone have any ideas how to resolve or bypass this issue.

Thanks
Jim

Toshiba Satellite T130- 16w, Windows 7

Several months ago i deleted some of the factory bloatware on my laptop because of slowdown. Though i checked everything was unnecessary before deleting it, i think i might've made a mistake. Since then i've only used mobile internet. Today I came to turn the wireless on the function+F8 key no longer does anything. The little wireless/bluetooth menu does not appear. Wireless is currently off and I can't get it on.

Wireless is turned on in the BIOS. In the device manager it appears as working and enabled. The computer is in every way set up to use it, I just can't get the key to do anything so i can't turn it on. Weirdly, I can turn bluetooth on and off separately, just not wireless.

I've updated the driver for the wireless but the hotkey driver isn't anywhere on the site. I've tried searching it elsewhere but couldn't find it for windows 7. Can I use the XP one, or one from a different Toshiba model? The T130 section just returns no results.

Does it sound like the hotkey is the issue? Does anyone know where I'd find the driver? Is there any way to turn the wireless on without using the function key (there's no switch)? Like through windows? I've been trying to sort it out for 4 hours and gotten nowhere.

Thanks for reading.

Hi

Win 7 requires the Toshiba VAP (value added package) installation to get the FN buttons working.
Visit the Toshiba EU driver page and there you can find the VAP for Win 7 64bit

If you need the VAP for Win 7 32bit, choose another notebook series and use the VAP released for another notebooks.
The VAP does not depend on notebook series.

This is driving me crazy. Everything I search for doesn't come up with the right answer. I have two Hyper-V VMs and I want to run them both full screen and switch between them easily. At present I have to exit the VM into the host OS and back into the other VM which then is not full screen. Any ideas ? Many thanks. Gary

A:How do you switch between Hyper-V VMs with a hotkey ?

On a single display system there's no way to do that. On dual / multiple display systems you can use ALT + TAB by first making a display not currently showing a full screen vm active, then switching task with ALT + TAB.

The same can be done on dual / multiple display systems easi and fast using the Task View button.

Driver is probably a generic wireless driver that windows update has installed. Try and get hold of the driver from Fujistu site...

Download the ones that apply, seems as though they ship the li1718 with a variety of Wireless cards.

Also check your Wireless settings in BIOS (if any)

Hi. I purchased a used HP Compaq laptop, NC 6120, and the wireless switch, I can't figure out how to turn it on. Pushing it, doesn't work. There has been no response from the person from whom I purchased it, no manual, no information on the Windows troubleshooting. I looked on several websites, with no definite solutions.
The laptop came to me, with Windows 7, installed in it.
Thank you.

I have a 2 year old Sony Vaio laptop, running Windows XP Pro with built in wi-fi, which up until last night was working perfectly.
The problem is when I went to move the slider switch to 'On' this morning, the green light failed to come on, and i can't connect to the network. The slider feels a little loose too.
Also, when I went to shut down last night (Well, i put it into 'hibernation' mode...which means it boots up quicker), it just 'hung' saying what it was going to do....i accidentally closed the lid, then opened it back up.....i tried to reboot, but it wasn't having it, so i took out the battery hoping that would help....which it did, then i booted back up......i think this may be the reason i can't connect.......i've switched off and put back on all my router plugs etc, but to no avail.i can still connect to my desktop ok.
So, any ideas? What went wrong and can it be fixed? is it a loose wire inside?
Any help appreciated guys!
Thanks!!!

I have an Acer TravelMate 290 (running XP) and have recently installed a BT broadband homehub. I initially had no problems accessing the wireless network but then my PC stopped detecting any wireless networks - as though the radio was off. Now I cannot switch my radio on - the switch on the PC is not working at all. The problem began once I brought the PC out of hibernation after having (accidently) switched the homehub off and on.

I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the BT software, updating the wireless driver (from the Acer website) - all with no success.

Something that may or may not be relevant is that I also recently installed a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse onto the laptop.

Has anybody experienced similar problems or have any suggestions? Advice gratefully received.

This is my friend's Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727 laptop. It's running Windows Vista Home (Basic), SP2.

She claims that when here, at home, the wireless does not work. I ran the diagnostic and it said wireless was not turned on, and that I needed to either find the wireless switch on the laptop itself (which there isn't one) or use the function shortcut (which is Fn + F1). It appears that non of the Fn keys are working, e.g. screen brightness etc. and this may be the only reason why we can't turn the wireless on. However, she claims that the wireless works in some other locations, e.g. at her boyfriends or on uni campus.

Some guy behind the tech desk at uni said it could be conflicting anti-virus software, but we uninstalled it all and still nothing.

Has anyone any suggestions?

Kind regards

When I flip the wireless switch on the side to "on" the WLAN light in front does not turn on and when I do to choose a wireless network it says no wireless netowrks were found in range. I know this is not true because I am connected to the wireless network with my other computer in order to post this message.

A:Sony Vaio VGN-N130g Wireless Switch Not Working

The computer is not toast, but the wireless adapter may be.
Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? Under Network Adapters is your WiFi adapter listed there? Download the WiFi adapter driver for your computer. Sony eSupport - VGN-N130G - Drivers & Software
If this still fails, power down the computer, remove the power adapter and battery. Turn it face down and remove the plate that hides the RAM and Wireless card, make sure the antennae wires are both connected. If so, then this card may need to be replaced.

I installed hyper v on my machine which is running Windows 8.1. Then I created a Virtual Switch on my wireless network. After that, it was not working in the VM but the wireless connection in the host was working fine. After that, when I connected to a different wireless network, it did not work. I deleted the bridge, uninstalled hyper v, but it is still not working. I installed hyper v again, but it is still not working. The wireless connection connects to the wireless network after putting the password, but does not give network connectivity to the internet.

I need help to get the wireless connection to work again.

Hi~ I have a SAT E205-S1904 and it died a few months ago.I took it in to have it fixed and they said it was a software issue and fixed it.

Before I took it in my wireless switch worked fine. Now there is no light and it does not work the kid who fixed it said the hardware was fine and he could not figure out why it was not working. I have wireless internet in my house which makes this laptop completely useless to me. I have windows 7 on it.

What am I missing?

How should we know what are you missing?
I don?t understand how it stopped working suddenly.

Question is: what have you done with your machine?

I also think it is software related issue but on this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Fact is that this function is controlled by software that runs in the background. Maybe you have stopped this somehow.

What you can do is to reinstall OS again and test functionality with ?factory settings? again.

Hi,

I've completed a Windows 7 Professional 32bit upgrade (clean install) to my SatPro this week and almost all is fine. I've reinstalled all the Win7 drives listed from this site and my software without any obvious issues. I say almost as the Wireless Communications Switch on the front of the unit has stopped functioning.

Previously with the switch pushed to the left the internal card would be turned off, now it remains on. The light goes out! The wireless card is functioning OK and makes connection to both home and office wifi networks but I can not turn it off when connected using a cable connection.

Any thoughts on how to restore the switch function? I've looked for drives but can't identify any.

Thanks

Hello all,
I posted this in Microsoft Answers, but I'm not convinced the "Support Engineers" there all know what they are talking about...

The story: My university has their computers set up with multiple input languages, none of which I use. Moreover, NetBeans (which I use frequently) uses the CTRL+Space shortcut for code completion, so I'd like to be able to use it without switching my keyboard to Chinese.

I've made a script that will customize the computer I'm using (because so many settings they use are messed up), so I'm looking for a way to do this in the registry or the command line, rather than the control panel. To make things more interesting, these computers have Deep Freeze on them, so any changes made to them do not stick around after rebooting the machine.

Short version:
Does anyone know of a way to disable the CTRL+Space hotkey (or muti-language input in general) via command line or the registry that does not require a reboot?

Thanks in advance!

A:Disabling language switch hotkey "CTRL+Space"?

Open Control Panel, then go to Region and Language. Click on the tab Keyboards and Languages. Click on the Change keyboards button, and go to the Advanced Key Settings. That's where the shortcuts for switching langauges are defined.

I have Windows 7 Professional on my PC. In the first load I had, the PC should automatically detect if the LAN cable was plugged in, turn off the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable was now in use.
Unfortunately, I had to reload my PC, and since then I can't get it to do it again.
So, what I'd like to achieve is this: Have Windows automatically detect when the cable is plugged in, turn of the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable is in use - and, obviously, vice versa.
Can someone tell me what I need to do, please?

There are two methods can help you.
1. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings> and right click your wired and wireless adapters one at a time to change the properties. Select IPv4, click <Properties>
then click <Advanced>. For each one, clear the "Automatic metric" check box and assign the metric value manually. Setting your wired adapter?s metric value lower than wireless adapter one, such as ?1? for wired adapter and ?2? for wired adapter.

2. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings>,
hold down 'alt' to bring up the "File" menu, select "Advanced", select
"Advanced Settings" from the dropdown menu, adjust the priority of your wired adapter higher than your wireless adapter in the "Advanced Settings" window under the "Adapters and Bindings" tab.

Hi everyone, I searched through the forums but couldn't really find what I was looking for.

Currently we have a DHCP server set up to a switch, that has a special line connecting to a switch in our shop which is just across our back lot, giving network access to the few computers over there. They recently put in a new machine that needs network access, but they have already accidentally cut two ethernet cords. I'm looking to provide a wireless solution for the machine, but I don't want to have to spend a few thousand dollars on a large wireless switch.

Can I plug a wireless router into the switch in our shop, and essentially turn it into a wireless bridge, or is there another, simpler way to do this?

If this has already been answered, sorry for missing it!

Thanks!

Hello,

I tried talking to toshiba, but they just keep telling me to download drivers that don't fix the problem.

I have a Toshiba NB205-N330BL "netbook" which came with windows starter, but in upgrading to win 7 ultimate the wireless "hokey" got turned off, and now it won't work to turn it back on.

I'm rather knowledgeable about computers, but I'm only just starting to get used to windows 7's admin setup.

Here's the deal, the computer recognizes the wireless card and has all of the proper drivers installed. It knows it has wireless capability, but like I said, during the install the computer "turned off" the wireless, and now the hotkey to turn it back on does not work, hence the "Wireless Capability" is turned off as phrased by the Windows Network Diagnostics.

Is there a back door way to manually "turn on" the wireless? I'm sure there's some line of code or something in the command prompt i could do to simulate what the hotkey initiates.

Again, the card is enabled, and all the drivers are there, the computer just thinks the wireless is turned off and the hotkey to turn it back on does not work. And I'm about at my limit in my google research.

Anything you could do would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Like my previous machine, I tried to change the input language from English to Korean with the right alt key.
It doesn't work. I've checked the keyboard with my laptop, right alt key changes the input language fine.

On my laptop (with working right alt key) in "Text Services and Input Languages" the default input language
is set to "Korean (Korea) - Microsoft IME." This is the only input language that has been set up.
I did the same with my new computer, but it doesn't work.



On my laptop when I hit the right alt key, the language would change as shown in the image above.

On my new computer when I hit right alt I hear the Windows exclamation sound and nothing happens.

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi all
Have just added latest driver CAB, v.A03,  for teh Precision 5510 to our MDT infrastructure and run a W7 x64.  All okay with the exception of the wireless hotkey functionality (Fn-PrtScr).  It's only disabling/enabling Bluetooth and not wireless as well.  All other Fn key combinations seem to be working okay.  Users could disable wireless via Mobility Center but this isn't ideal.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

I have a Lenovo Edge 2 (one of the Flex Series) that has been working great for the past 10 months.  I usually use the mouse and turn of the touchpad so I don't accidentally move the cursor while typing.  On this machine, the F6 key enables/disables the touchpad.NORMALLY:  a notification comes up briefly on the screen when F6 is pressed (either a diagram of the touchpad, or a diagram with a diagonal line across the touchpad); there is a "live" icon in the lower right hand tray of the display that indicates when the touchpad is disabled.PROBLEM:  Yesterday evening an automatic Windows 10 update occured, and the touchpad could no longer be disabled (the notification came up, but the touchpad worked even when the notifcation indicated that it should be disabled); also, the "live" icon was gone.  TEMPORARY FIX: I uninstalled the Windows 10 update, and resinstalled the Synaptics driver for the touchpad (from the Lenovo website), and everything is back to normal.  I have prevented automatic updates by making my internet connection "metered", but I work in many places, and use different networks, and don't want to have to keep all of them "metered".MY QUESTION:  Any ideas what this update is doing to mess up my touchpad, and how to fix it? (I would like to allow the updates)?

I have re-installed, as a clean install, Win7 Pro 64 SP1, on a Lenovo T40.Every driver on the website had to be downloaded and installed.However, I cannot regain functionality on the 'Fn' blue keys, which turn the brightness /volume etc. up and down.Also windows update seems reluctant to find any updates......Is there a keyboard driver for this model?I had no such problem with my S200 model re-installation. Any help would be appreciated, thanks..

Hi I just recently got a Y700 laptop( Model: 80NW0010US ). 15" Touchscreen versionJust recently the F5 Airplane Mode hot key has stopped working. It worked when I first received it a few days ago, and all of the other hotkeys are still working just fine. I should probably mention that the F5 key, itself, works. As I can still hit the F5 key and it will refresh the current web page. I can still turn airplane mode on/off through network settings, but I really want to fix the hotkey if possible. I've gone to Lenovo's support page and installed the following:-BIOS update-Energy_Manager_and_Flight_Mode_Driver-Battery Gauge-WLAN-Synaptics-Intel WLAN-Intel Management Engine Interface Driver-Intel Bluetooth-Intel Chipset-Lenovo Utility-Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI) Driver I have run the following programs(none of which show anything being infected/corrupted):-McAfee Antivirus-Malwarebytes-Command Prompt ( sfc and DISM ) None of the above helped in fixing the airplane mode hotkey. I will continue editing this post with drivers/fixes that I have tried. Thanks for looking and any help is much appreciated.

Last night (about 23 hours ago) I made shortcuts of my most used programs to my desktop. I then designated hotkeys to each shortcut as well as making the shortcuts "Hidden".

Last night, the Hotkeys were working perfectly, but now as I turned on my computer the hotkeys don't seem to work anymore.

Any kind of help is very much appreciated

A:Hidden Desktop Shortcuts' Hotkey not working

Making shortcuts hidden does not disable key combinations that you assign to them.

Please check whether key combinations are still assigned.
You can use this free program RJL Software - Software - Utility - Shortcut Key Explorer - Download
to check all of them in one place.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad E560. Above the number pad, there are four keys, a calculator, a lock, a sphere that means "internet", and a folder. Three of them (calculator, internet, folder) work, but the "lock screen" does nothing. I have tried:1. Installing "Lenovo Hotkey Features Integration" for Windows 10 off the Lenovo website2. Pressing the "Fn" key while pressing the lock screen key Neither of these things made it work. The key is not physically broken - if I press it in certain contexts (such as when the Desktop is showing) I get a Windows "ding" sound (the same way you get if you press any other key Windows doesn't recognize at the Desktop). For some reason the system just doesn't seem to know what to do with it, even with Lenovo Hotkey Features Integration installed. This is a brand-new install of Windows 10 on a laptop I just bought (used), so I cannot say whether or not the key worked in the past. I *can* lock Windows using the Windows key + L shortcut. Does anyone have any ideas how to get the "lock screen" key working?

Hello,
I've got a laptop, sony fz21e, which did come with Vista installed.
Now that windows 7 has been around for a while, my friend has maanged to install it on the laptop, since it can use vista drivers.
Ive added uk extended keyboard to the standard list (which was uk keyboard and some other thingy I dont know). I also set default keyboard to extended.
Now if I want to do a letter with a circumflexy, i type ALTGR+ 6, let go of all keys, then press the required letter. this works.

But for some reason, tilde doesnt work (did in Vista). Normally, AltGr + # (tilde is on # key) followed by required letter. Tried using shift, just in case, but no joy.
Tilde works fine by itself (ie shift #)

OK Thanking you all for Any and all ideas
Greeny

A:uk extended keyboard: hotkey for tilda's characters not working

When all else fails, all symbols have ASCII codes that can be looked up - then just use the alt key plus the numeric code for the symbol u want. Here is a link (but there are many)..... http://www.ascii-code.com/ hope this of help. I'm sure you can then setup a rarely used key as a hot key, I just can't remember how to do that - LOL.

I bought this laptop used with Vista on it and the LCD brightness control wont work. The Brihtness is set at default level which is tolerable but non the less i cannot adjust it brighter or less. I reinstalled Vista and installed XP media center edition and still cannot get the brightness to adjust. I have installed all of the toshiba drivers for this notebook including the recent ACPI bios and hotkey application. I am currently on XP MCE.
If anyone has any ideas to what could be wrong i would glady appreciate it. I have been at this for a few days now and no answers not even from the Toshiba site.

Thanks

A:Brightness Control Hotkey No Working On Toshiba P105

I assume this is the "push the Fn button and another key" thingie? If so, check to ensure that the Fn key works by pressing it and one of the other functions to see if that works.

Then test the key that you use to adjust brightness - without using the Fn key. Does that key also perform it's designated function?

This'll let you determine if it's an error with the keyboard.

i can't find any wireless network using my laptop.
i try to switch on the wireless using the hardware switch on the lapto(fn+f2) but the wireless led wont come on.

need help. flying off in a few days need the wireless to work. =(
thanks.
 

A:Cant find wireless network. possible wireless switch problem.

Some laptops need drives to activate the appropriate "FN" designated commands. Did you reinstall the PC recently?
Are you near a network you can connect to? Go to library, most of them have free Wi-Fi.
Also you can try to activate the card manualy. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > and right click of your Card and "enable"
There is a low chance of this happening, but led might have burned out. Let us now how it went...
