Customer Question
I have a Toshiba Satellite...
I have a Toshiba Satellite S75-A7140 PSKNAU-05C050. I had WiFi, but when I upgraded the Driver using the Toshiba Service Station, I no longer have it showing or available. I checked on a Command Prompt screen and it says that there is no Wireless Interface on the system. In the Network Connectins it shows that WiFi is there, enabled but not connected?? Anything I can do to get WiFi back?

Thank you for the information you provided. So the problem laptop is no longer able to connect to the internet because of the wifi problem. Now, is your iPad connected to the same wifi network? In your Windows 8.1 laptop, is it able to show the wireless networks available?

Cool... any thoughts on how to resolve this issue? The Laptop is connected via an ethernet Hotspot using a cable connected to the iPad. The Laptop only shows the iPad connected, but shows no WiFi connections.
Laptop technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago
Oh ok. Since the laptop is connected to the internet now, can I remotely access the laptop so that I can directly troubleshoot the issue and fixing the wifi problem while you watch?

No, nothing at all.
Laptop technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago
I believe you boot into Safe Mode. It must be in Safe Mode with Networking so that I can still remote in since in that mode you still have internet connection.To exit into Safe Mode, press Windows Key + RIn the RUN dialog box, type:msconfigClick OKClick the BOOT tabUncheck the Safe BootClick ApplyClick OKthen restart
