    Toshiba Tecra A2 - cannot get wireless radio on

    Trying to get this to connect wirelessly. The intel prog is saying that the hardware radio switch is off. Problem is, I cannot seem to switch it on. I press the Fn and F8 key to switch it on but nothing happens and it still says it is switched off. When I press the Fn key a light comes on below the power on switch but radio will still not switch on.

    I did enable the Fn key in bios.

    Any ideas?
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    You're a lifesaver. I was sure I'd looked for one. Had another look and found the tiny switch.

    Thanks.
