Answers :

It's supposed to be FN + F2, that would be a special [Function] key held down while tapping the [F2] key. But you probably knew that.

\015\012Ummm if it won't turn on that way, perhaps the driver got messed up. And you should download it and re-install it.

\015\012If you are out of warranty, and technically and mechanically adept, you may want to try and re-seat the wireless module in the laptop. I didn't say it would be easy to get to. And as the Myth Busters say - you shouldn't try this at home. If you're not confortable with that level of work - it's best to take it to a shop.

\015\012Of course as a worse-case-scenario option - you could purchase an after market wireless card and use that.
