    Toshiba L850 wireless

    We've installed a blank Windows 7 setup on our Toshiba Sat-Pro L850, then added the drivers. We are finding the the Fn-F12 (or F12 depending on BIOS setup) only switches the Bluetooth and not the Wi-Fi on and off.

    Can anyone give any guidance on how I can get the Fn-F12 to switch the Wi-Fi as well.

    This is the source of a major headache on our school machines

    Thanks guys

    Sometimes you might have to download a separate install that controls the wireless button function. Have you still got a laptop with the preinstalled windows, so you can check if it works on that?

    Also, I had a bios problem with the C850's. It may not affect the L850's but worth a look just in case:

    Flipping great! can't lock down bios
