Wireless Disabled, not just in sys tray where I'm used to finding it
I was at Kinko's today, plugged into their ethernet/software and printed some stuff. The software that they used to charge me said that it would need to disable my wireless but would reenable automatically when it was done. Well, got home and now my wireless doesn't work. The switch is on, it says it's connected, but there are no wireless connections in range. It's just blank. Any suggestions?

Right click your wireless icon then click repair,,,,if that doesnt work go to network connections ,highlight the wireless connection then in the left pane click repair.You can also check by going to control panel then under administrative tools then click services and see if your wireless connection is set to automatic and started.

Open the Network Icon in the Tray Notification Area, do you see your wireless? Will it connect if you use a Ethernet cable? Post results
I find the built in windows software normally works fine, But it was probably disabled when the software was installed. You can either plug into your router with an Ethernet cable and download the new software or enable the windows wireless.
To enable the windows wireless configuration right click the WIFI connection and go to properties ,wireless networking tab and then check the top box saying use windows to configure my wireless network settings.
The Konica Magicolor 1690MF Printer/Copier/Scanner is connected with an Ethernet Cable or USB Cable. It is not equipped to operate as a wirleless printer. It has a 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet interface port and a USB Revision 2.0 High-Speed compliant port.
To do two-sided printing you must have the duplex (double-sided) option installed. This also requires either Tray 2 or the Attachment to be installed underneath your machine. Tray 2 is the optional lower feeder unit which increases capcity of your machine to 500 pages. The Attachment comes with the Duplex Unit.
Only Letter and A4 plain paper (16-20 lb bond) can be autoduplexed. With the duplex accessory installed you can do duplex or double-sided printing automatically.
From within Printer Preferences select Two-side Printing > Automatic. Shoud have choices of Off, Manual or Automatic. Within the Layout Tab for your work you may also be able to specify duplex (double-sided).
Should you have continued difficulty, please reply and advi e if the duplex option is installed and with which software and operating sysytem you are using.

ok then first take a ethernet cable and plug it to the output of the modem and into the input of of router(for the link sys this will be known as the port labeled internet. then use the software for the link-sys and give it a network then wireless connect your computers through that network.
