Yesterday I was on my toshiba satelite L550-OCD and the wireless wasn't working then it started working again. I closed my laptop and when I went back to it it wasn't working again and hasn't since. It says there's no wireless connection to plug in Ethernet cable

now I have tried Fn F8 and it doesn't do anything. So I went into my toshiba assist and opened optimize. Then toshiba hardware settings and
clicked LAN and it says it's turned on. But when I click radar it shows it is not connected and the light is off

I have gone into everywhere I can think device
manager, registry, everywhere and can not figure this out.
Please

Might sound stupid, but have you completely re-booted?

I have completely rebooted I have even retired it to an earlier time. How do I reinstall the drivers? I am not plugged in to the Internet. Do I need Internet to do so? And where do I go to reinstall drivers. Step by step would be helpful. Thank you

You need to cable to your router and untick the settings Hide SSID to make your network show up in the list. Here's a link to the Sticky Post on how to access the router but this old thread is now being closed so please start a new one if you need more help. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/38111-18-find-chang...
