Hope this is not too late (or maybe useful to someone else with the same issue). Wife's computer had the same problem - wokring fine, then one dya, we lost the wireless connections. Found out that I had accidentally locked the wireless out with the "fn"-F2 key (looks like a little wireless adapter). Hitting this one more time turned it back on.

You have to go into system utilities when your computer is first turned on. You must hit the F2 button to get into it during those split seconds to get to the bios menus. Once you are there you will be able to enable wireless lan from that menu. Once the computer is up and running though I don't know of a way to get into the bios menu.

I am writing this assuming you are running windows XP

I would try completely uninstalling the driver for it in the add remove programs part of the control panel then re-installing it from scratch along with any utility that it may have with it since some times with some wireless cards you have to actually open the wireless utility that comes with the driver and right click the little icon by the clock and select "enable radio" and that actually turns it on internally and not clicking "enable radio" will leave it in an off state even though it shows up in the device manager as installed and working fine it is really off like you said..
Now I have mostly seen that problem with Toshiba laptops and maybe a few others depending on the type of card they had and I can not guarantee that you need to click enable radio in the utility for yours but it is certainly worth a try.
if you have trouble opening the wireless utility for it or even finding it then go to network connections and right click on your wireless connection and select “view available networks” and when the window pops up click the button on the lower left side that says “change advanced settings” and then when the next window appears go to the “wireless networks” tab at the top and then uncheck the little box that says “let windows configure my wireless networks” then click ok and that should allow the other utility to open or appear down next to the clock and if it does not then look in the start menu for the utility or reboot the computer and it might load automatically since you just disabled the windows one.

If this info is not helpful then please let me know and I will try to help you look deeper into it .

How can I reset service light on 2008 Volvo V50

OTE: If the service interval indicator flashes it may be caused by one of the service interval indicator parameters not being programmed. This can only be carried out using suitable diagnostic equipment. Always check for any stored trouble codes as this may affect the resetting of the service interval indicator.
Ensure all doors are closed. Turn ignition key to position I. Press and hold reset button [A] 104667 07, 116126 07 Immediately turn ignition key to position II (within 2 seconds). Keep button [A] depressed until service message has been reset. A yellow warning light [B] will illuminate when it is time to release button [A]. Release reset button [A] within 4 seconds. There will be an audible signal when reset is complete. If reset button is not released within 4 seconds, the service interval indicator will not be reset.

I cant find the wireless switch on this computer help

Hello mac552,

There is a row of small buttons just below the power button. The button furthest to the left is the wireless communication button/indicator. The button has a small icon on it that kind of resembles a sattelite dish. Pressing the wireless communication button will enable or disable the wireless function. it also has a small light which indicates the status of wireless LAN communications.

I have VAIO laptop, model PCG 7Z2L, and just recently I can't get it to work with the wireless lan. It keeps saying that the wireless switch is off eventhough is on. I can't remember if there was a light...

This is a well-known issue with Sony laptops. While the internal wireless adaptor indicates it is working, it really isn't. The best solution is to buy an external wireless adaptor (USB) and disable the internal adaptor. You will find the replacement will work better than the internal unit ever did.

Is it safe to drive my 1999 dodge durango while the check engine light is on

When it finds a problem in the electronic-control system that it can't correct, the computer turns on a yellow warning indicator that's labeled "check engine," "service engine soon" or "check powertrain." Or the light may be nothing more than a picture of an engine, known as the International Check Engine Symbol, perhaps with the word "Check." In addition to turning on the light, the computer stores a "trouble code" in its memory that identifies the source of the problem, such as a malfunctioning sensor or a misfiring engine. The code can be read with an electronic scan tool or a diagnostic computer, standard equipment in auto repair shops.

Its always better to get it checked as soon as possible..For time now you can drive...

My modem is working perfectly on my notebook then i installed my Linksys router on the modem and router to my notebook. I turn on the power of my modem everything is light up then i power on my router,...

Wireless broadcast is usually the first thing to go when a router is failing. How old is your router? Try these steps:
Turn off computer
Remove power from router
Remove power from modem
Wait 2 minutes
Restore power to modem
Wait for modem to boot up and gain all signals
Restore power to router
Wait for router to completely powerup
Watch for wireless indicator light
Boot up computer, verify your wireless network is broadcasting

If you still can not get the wireless network to access the internet, try connecting your computer with an ethernet cable. If everything connects fine and you can access the web, it might be that your router is going bad and needs replacing.

Try running the ethernet cable from the modem to port #2 on your router. Then run the second cable from port#3 on the router to your computer. This effectively uses the router as a pass-thru and bypasses all its functions. If you are able to access the internet this way, you need to replace the router.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - multi-fuse related problems.The A/C keeps shorting out and the garage replaces the fuse. Where is the fuse box for the A/C located? Also, the radio display is dim/non existent...

I can't answer because I have other question open, sorry, but here I send any comments and clues to solve (I hope).

For the FUSE PANEL, location and description, I suggest check the 2000-Pontiac-Grand-Prix-Owners-Manual (page 330 and next). A/C have one "diode". Check it.

About your radio display, sound like a internal problem, keep in mind that the CD is working.

The Security Litgh, its possible that you have any problem with the THEFT system or any aftermark alarm (if you have).

Hope helps (remember rated this).
