Question about Computers & Internet
I'm trying to connect to the internet on my laptop. It's a Gateway 7415GX and it's supposed to have a 802.11g network adapter in it. I've done everything I can to set up a wireless network but I get the message "Te radio on your 802.11 network adapter is still disabled. Use the hardware radio control switch to enable it"
We have a 2Wire wireless modem through SBC. Our other laptop works just fine with it. If I plug the Gateway in with the cord, it has internet access. This is driving me insane!
I've looked all over and I can't find any switch anywhere on the computer! The only switch on the bottom releases the battery!
Try FN+F2 to toggle the wireless radio on / off. Also check to make sure that driver has the radio enabled. (right click on the network adpter select properties. Click on the advanced tab. verify that radio on/off is set to on.

Click start control panel network and internet look for wireless
"Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" might be ticked untick it
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
if this fails to fix the problem
try unplugging the usb wireless device
uninstall the netgear software in the add/remove programs in the control panel reboot and then reinstall the software then plug in the usb wireless adapter
hope this helps
