The Toshiba Satellite series of laptops come with wireless Internet capabilities. You should be able to receive a wireless Internet connection from a local Wi-Fi hotpot when your Toshiba Satellite laptop's connection is switched on, which is easy to do.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn on your laptop. Allow your computer to go through the normal boot up and Windows login process.

  2. 2

    Look at the front of your laptop. You should see a small switch between two labels.

  3. 3

    Move the switch to the "On" position. This will turn on your wireless Internet connection.

  4. 4

    Check the Windows taskbar to see if the Internet access icon turned from a computer with a red "x" to a stack of white bars. If it did, you enabled your wireless access and you should be able to access the Internet from your laptop.

Tips and warnings

  • You may need to configure the access for your Wi-Fi connection by entering the password and encryption type. In Windows 7 and Vista, you can configure your Internet connections under "Control Panel" by clicking "Network and Sharing Center".
  • To turn off Wi-Fi, move the switch the "Off" position or simultaneously hit the "Fn" and "F8" keys on your keyboard.
