    Re: Thrive WiFi not turning on after reboot

    He tried the factory reset and was still stuck at 'wifi turning on'.
    A reflash might be the only way out....

    No affiliation with Toshiba whatsoever- other than as a satisfied Thrive owner.

    Well if his WiFi is broken I got a rollback lined up tonight, if you need it quick let me know. I'll cover it under bricked since its not working can probably do it tonight.

    Update 2013-03-14:
    I took Thrive apart (down to separating front and back) and problem was immediately evident, the Wi-Fi module was only half plugged into the main board. After pushing the module back into the connector I noticed there were two screw holes where the module can be secured to the main board after it is plugged in but that there were not any screws. I ordered a bag of 50 stainless steel M2 3mm screws, put two in to hold Wi-Fi module securely to main board, and reassembled. After powering up the Wi-Fi continually obtained IP, saved, and started cycle over. After one more factory reset, Wi-Fi and everything worked fine.

    Thanks to those who offered suggestions and help, and to the teardown video!

    Saw somewhere someone suggested factory reset, did this, but first step of setup I get the same "Wi-Fi turning on..." message forever.
    Anyone else have this same problem? It almost appears to be hardware. If it is going to cost more than a new tablet to get repaired I will not be happy. Can a new Wi-Fi module be purchased (and user replaced)?
    Thanks for any help! (btw this is a problem strictly with the tablet and not any wi-fi and/or home networking)

    I know, I know.

    Old thread, old tablet.

    I had this issue come up after a road trip. Wifi didn't connect in hotels so I thought it was just the hotels.

    Came back from vacation and it would not connect to our router or at my wife's job. So, I tried clearing cache/dalvik and it did not work.

    Finally, I just did a complete wipe/factory reset in CWM recovery and it connected. This Thrive is still going.... and going.... and going..
