Did you change the OS? There is a Windows driver you must install to activate the keyboard shortcuts. You should also be able to access the wireless driver control panel and activate it.

I have a solution that i found on the net. I had the same problem except, my satellite was brand new, and even when i would use the function keys, nothing would work. So, first disconnect your laptop from power, remove the battery, and press the power up button while holding it down for atleast 30 seconds. i know it sounds weird, but that's what i thought at first, and it worked. Ofcourse while holding down the power button, nothing will come on as there is no power source. after you're done, put the battery back on and connect the laptop to power, then switch on the laptop, your wifi should be working. Although, you should always have the battery atleast half, or connect the laptop to power when using wifi. however, that's how i dealt with it. Hope it helps and works. post back if it does

Im guessing no, since the button is broken? Do you have a Warrenty? Take it to a local repair shop and ask them to fix the button

This is probably the right way to proceed. Track down the original CD containing your specific model's drivers or see if it can be pulled from the Toshiba support site directly.
