I've got the same problem also with a Toshiba Satellite. I can't detect any wireless network and cannot connect to ethernet cable since I have my laptop formated.
I think it might be because we don't have the network driver installed, though I don't know how we get that.

Found the Solution

Guys, i was searching for weeks and months but finally i was looking to my BIOS and found the solution.
Toshiba Satellite C-55A is my notebook. When you got to your BIOS settings (Press f2 while starting), you will see an ADVANCED tab and in there please press "System Configuration". Then Built-in LAN is probably disabled, make it enabled and that's it. Now it is working for me!
