Satellite l505 wireless wont turn on Fn F4
Posted on 2010-09-08
I Have a Satelite L505 and wireless wont detect anything, diagnose it says push the power button on the wireless, the problem is, this is a soft-switch (Fn + F4) and that doesnt do anything at all! Fn F3 and others work (lighten/darken display etc), but not the wireless. Dev. manager recognizes it and is ok as far as it knows. I removed from dev. mgr and rebooted, it installed, but same issue. Tried to check bios but it has a password, dont think that is a fix anyway...
Thoughts? Any way to bypass the "softkey" to get the wireless adapter turned on? Its wired because network adapters do show it "on" as in enabled, I can disable and reenable, but Vista still thinks its off by the toggle switch..
