Hi there

My toshiba Satellite L40-139
Model PSL40 - 02R00NEN

The problem is that i was connected to wifi and all was working fine, then it just cut off.
I have tried resetting the hub, and taking the plug out and back in, and changing every setting in the computer and the hub that i can think of and a couple that i didn't know of that i read online (on phone). And STILL no wifi will connect. It work's fine with ethernet cable, but as soon as it is disconnected, no internet for meeee.

Is there such a thing as a wireless card in the laptop and if so could this be the problem (faulty)??

any help is very much appreciated.

Right, checked everything and no flag's or crosses.

Downloaded and installed the drivers for the laptop from link's you gave me and still it finds no wifi.

would re-installing windows maybe do the trick or do you think the card may be broken/faulty?

Thank's for the reply

I've had a few laptops come in lately with failed wireless cards. Easy way out is something like this:

Otherwise, you can replace the wireless adaptor in the notebook.
