Hi, there are (4) areas to view to try, and fix the problem. 1. From the Desktop, click on the "Start button." 2. In the Search box, Type: modem. 3.

Next, the location to go to is the "All Programs" start menu, click on the start button to open, scroll to find: the Accessories file, select to open the file. 6. View to see if you have the Windows Mobility Center; function, if so? Open the program. If not? Skip the action. 7. Next go to All Programs, scroll to find the "Toshiba" file, open the file, select Utilities, click to open; if you see the Toshiba Assist icon, open, and click on (Toshiba Hardw...), select the LAN button, and "check" the Wireless Communication Switch, (on / off), click, "Apply and OK!" 8. Go to the Toshiba file once again, and select; ConfigFree, follow all the instructions. 9. Click on the Start button, in the menu, in the (right, pane) select, Connect To: Follow all the instructions afterward. 10. "To finalize all applications, changes and "Updates!" Restart the computer" If this solution helped? Rating Feedback, is appreciated. "Thanks!'
Have you tried Fn F2 (instead of F8)?

If not, if you can get to the "Manage Network Connections" page (usually Start -> Control Panel -> Network(ing?) -> Manage network connections), right click on your connection -- if it gives you the option to Enable it, then that means it was disabled somehow (to enable it, click Enable).

Hope that helps... :)
