Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Fn F2 will not disconnect my gateway from the wireless network.

\015 I can no longer disconnect from my wireless router by pressing Fn F2. When I press the buttons the led will come on or go out but I stay connected to the internet unless I manually disconnect by using the tray icon. The buttons used to connect and disconnect but now I stay connected all the time.\015
