    Can't turn radio on | Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030 Mini-PCI Card

    JMZ10

      I recently put in my laptop a Intel Centrino Wireless N 1030. Windows sees it fine, and the hardware itself works. The problem is however I have no physical switch for WiFi, and the radio wont turn on using the laptops  function key for it (FN + F12). I have tried the latest drivers and older drivers.

       

      My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite P850. I have the latest drivers for rest of the hardware installed. the WiFi function key does work but seems to have no effect on the WiFi card, even tho the flash cards work, and the Pro-Set software can see the card. In both my Windows 7 and Ubuntu builds (and intel proset software) on the system it says the WiFi is turned off by the hardware switch as said above i don't have one, nor does the function key seem to work with it.

       

      This fourm post on Toshiba's forum outlines what I have tried so far: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/message.jspa?messageID=299642#299642 NOTE: I am JMZ10 on that forum.

      Before replying please read that post carefully, as I have tried quite a lot of things, checked a lot of things and so on.

      I dunno if its much use coming to intel for help but I figure its worth a try, thanks in advance.
