The critical updates were from 4/13/2010. There was a group of 6 updates(KB979683, KB980232, KB980830, KB981332, KB979309 and KB978601). Almost immediately after installing them is when the application quit working. As I stated before, all Intel/Toshiba updates have been installed.
I am just keeping this post alive....just to let everyone know that this problem still exists and BestBuy, Intel and Toshiba are clueless about this and i gues they don't bother about the customers. Anyways i have tried all posibilities and still cannot use the P2TV with my Toshiba laptop i am connecting my laptop to the HDTV directly using the HDMI cable...........the actual purpose of taking this laptop was the Blue Lable feature and that does not work............
I was having all the same issues as mentioned above..and solved it. I am now typing this and watching it on my laptop AND TV screen!
On you laptop go to Control Panel>Network & Internet>Network Connections>Wireless Network Connections.
Right click on the Wireless Network Connection that is "Disabled" and Enable it. Once Enabled, re-try opening your
Intel Wireless Display..it should now work.
For me the disabled connection was "Wireless Network Connection 2"
Good Luck - Let us know you have success.
I too am having all the same described problems with the wifi technology on the Dell Studio. It worked fine when I used it a few times after purchasing. Haven't tried using it in last 6 weeks or so, and now it doesn't work. I followed all the advice on updating drivers, turning programs/systems off before updating, etc... Now everytime I try to use the wifi it tells me that Wifi technology is not enabled. I removed/reinstalled it several times - no change. I've checked all settings in Device Manager which reports everything is working properly. Thus, it appears this problem is NOT limited to the Toshibas, but is a combination of Intel and Microsoft programming. This is the second Dell Studio I've had, and have gone through multiple OEM installs, and do not intend to do it again. Bestbuy and/or Intel must determine a workable solution - which is not defined as reinstalling original OEM software.
I called Geek Squad yesterday and spoke to 3 different agents. Each claimed to have NO KNOWLEDGE of this problem and recommended that I speak to the manager of the Geek Squad at my local Best Buy store to attempt to get Best Buy involved with forcing a solution from Intel, Microsoft, Dell or Toshiba. I'll be doing that today or tomorrow. I also went back and removed each of the April 13 microsoft updates, removed and reinstalled the wifi and wireless drivers and software, but this did NOT help. Same response - wireless technology is not enabled. Device manager still reports everything working fine. Also checked boot-up setup and all is properly set.
Went to local best buy today and spoke to their geek squad. They have had several complaints of this same issue on the Dell Studio, and are NOT aware yet of any fixes short of erasing hard drive and reinstalling OEM software. I suggest that everyone contact/file complaints with Best Buy, Dell, Intel, Microsoft, and NetGear until one of them determines what is causing this issue and they develop an acceptable solution. I am in the process of doing so now.
This is RIDICULOUS! Same issue as above, this is the 2nd time it happened. 1st time it was an update from toshiba (through the bulletin board), though I don't have the exact update that broke it (I think I posted it before) I basically ignored anything from Toshiba, and after a factory restore (and 20 hours reconfiguring my computer the way I need it) all was well for several months. 2 days ago I got a Windows update which broke it. KB915517, KB981078, KB982526, KB982519, KB980846 or KB915597 were the updates installed, I'll try to follow up with which one broke it later. In hopes Toshiba gave a sh*t about their customers, I allowed Toshiba to install it's Bios update hoping for the best... nada.
As with others, the Wireless Connection 2 is missing which is obviously related. I still have the same Wireless Connection 1 and 3 that were setup originally. Device manager shows no errors.
I've noticed something today. I turned on my laptop and once it got to the Windows Welcome screen it got stuck there for about 5 minutes before my desktop appeared. When all the icons on the taskbar appear, I noticed that the Intel My WiFi utility icon had the yellow triangle and when I opened the Utility it said Adapter not found.
I'm experiencing the same issue with my Vaio. The only way that I can recover is to do a complete system restore, fortunately, I haven't installed much on it since I was trying to find the 'bugs' first. I considered taking the Vaio back and getting a different computer but I see that it appears this issue runs across the board. Does anyone know if this is only affecting the i5s or all i5s and i7s? I'm beginning to think that this is a Windows 7 issue....
I have the same problem, but with some caveats ...
Dell Inspiron 710m
XP, service pack 3
When I turn the computer off, and start it up within 1 minute, the wireless adaptor turns on.
BUT .... if I turn it off, and start it up in 4 minutes, the wireless adaptor does not turn on.
