I have a new laptop a toshiba L300D and cant get the wifi working when i flick the switch it comes on but it is orange. i dont have the manual im sure its also online but you guys at hotukdeals if the first port of call it works with the Ethernet cable and the wifi is working on my other laptop so its not the router.

i have updated the drivers, which it told my to do in the offline help. but that didn't help the wifi.

One other thing i noticed in control panel there is no wifi icon but there is a sticker on the laptop "wifi Certified"

Please help im clueless

Wifi is not on that list just network adapters and realtek.

I have used one of them web and walk 3G usb pen drives do you think that might have changed some settings.

It has the wifi symbol on F8 but it does nowt as far as i can tell and there is a switch at the bottom.

Im starting to thing it might not have wifi because it say says WiFi certified

if you go in to device manage it will be in there and just enable it..

or like i said hold down ur fn key and press f8 or f5 at the same time.on my acer it tells you on screen if its turned it on or off

It's unlikely to be called wifi, it'll just have the name of the wifi card.
