Answers :

As above it is a pain. You can always check the manufacturers site for any wireless apps or upgrades. Uninstall and re-install the drivers. Do a physical check to make sure your Wireless card is properly connected. You may be able to change the settings in BIOS to enable it as well.

Or your wireless card may just be dead (See previous posters suggestions)
Ugh...I hate when this happens.

Usually you'll have to do some component level repair on the motherboard to repair the problem. NOT FUN.

The easiest and cheapest solution is the band-aid method.

Get a pcmcia wireless card for 20-50.

I don't recommend the usb ones.

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
