Toshiba satellite e205 windows 7 home premium
this used to work
on occasion i had to disable then when starting program it asked me to enable then it worked
now, disabled and won't let us enable
when try to start program it says "intel my wify technology not enabled. restart the computer and try again"
in network and sharing it says the wireless connections is enabled but not connected
my it guy is sitting here with me and he can't figure it out either
i see this has been a problem for years ... surely intel has a fix for this
if we need to download something, that is fine
but i don't see how intel could let this go on for so long and not provide a simple fix for the many people with this common recurring problem
thanks, we look forward to your help and intel's solution
If your "IT guy" is there with you, does this mean you at work? Maybe your IT department has disabled (or blocked or firewalled) the My WiFi PAN. (Intel® My WiFi Technology)

it's not a big issue.......
my wifi technology was not working......today
i did only five steps
1)go to DEVICE MANAGER
2)Then, explore "Network adaptor."
3) Click on Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adaptor, Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adaptor #2 or sometime else ok.
4)it will display the child window."show enable device"
5)then click on it!
I had the same problem with my brand new Toshiba P775.
It worked for the first few days, then stopped.
I came on here trying to figure out how to make it work, then here's what I did...
Open the hardware and devices troubleshooter.
If you can't find it, just search for it in control panel/administrative tools.
Click next. It will ask if you want to turn on Microsoft mini adapter, click yes.
I have spent several days following all of the discussions, "googling" everything possible, downloading every driver update and finally found the answer. Hope this helps someone else.
1. Open up the Intel MyWiFi Utility
2. Choose Profiles
3. Select your device.
4. Select "edit".
5. Choose the "sharing" tab.
6. Under Filter Network Traffic - choose Disabled and check OK. It updates the profile and after a few seconds of everything going black - I was able to connect and it went right in.
This is not the easy set-up that it was supposed to be. But I finally got my issue resolved and hope others can find this useful.
Ok this problem is giving me fits as well. I have a Toshiba Portege R705-P25. When I go to MyWiFi Technology, it says "Network Adaptor Not Found". There is no option to enable or disable and the entire profile/network name line is grayed out. I've tried a couple of these suggestions but none of them work! Help! Let me know if you need me to check anything or give you any info that can help you fix my problem!
THIS IS CRAP.
I shouldn't have to disable/re-enable your device from the device manager EVERY time I resume from sleep. Even then, the internet connection sharing still does not work.
This issue has been live for OVER a year, and as you can see it's not an uncommon one.
Please stop neglecting this as our Wireless adapters are gimped because of it.
In my case, not only am I unable to use ICS via the My Wifi, but also, b/c the machine takes a minute or two trying to load the My WiFi adapter on resume from standby, my wireless adapter does not activate until after it fails completely.
Thanks for reading.
@Meetloaf First of call, cool screen name. Second, can you tell me more about your problem and particular config? Does your WiFi card just fail to come up out of sleep? If so, what does the error look like / what is the code? Which WiFi module do you have installed and what is the driver version?

SK, thanks for the quick response. Below I am linking a thread I started a while back when I initially tried tackling the issue. You can see the details there.
However, after searching the web a bit more last night and playing around, I was able to find a fix for my specific issue (imagine that =]).
I went on Lenovo's site and started trying Wifi drivers for different machines. I found a version of the drivers that claimed to be 126.96.36.199, I went and checked mine and it appeared to be a different version. I tried downloading/installing the driver over what was my current and it said the driver I had installed was newer than the one I was trying to install (Which didn't make sense according to the version number, I think I may have been on 14.0.02?).
So I uninstalled the driver and installed the driver I just downloaded, I no longer get the hangup after awake from sleep, and My Wifi seems to be working OK.
So, I don't know that this will help anyone else, and really I consider my self lucky that I happend upon a driver intended for a different machine that ended up working for mine.
But there it is for anyone who may be interesetd. And again, I do appreciate your response/concern.
