Hi, My Name is Henry. I am one of the technicians here.

You need to try re-installing the drivers for the wireless adaptor.

If that does not work then I think you will have to get a repair person to check it.

Turn off the computer, remove the battery, then give a spritz of CRC electronics cleaner. Move the switch back and forth about a dozen times. This product dries quickly. Wait for it to do so. Then give it a tiny spritz of WD40, move the switch back and forth a dozen more times. Wipe off any residue. Let the computer sit for about half an hour. Then reinstall the battery, fire it up and give your internet connection a try, making sure that you're switch is in the "on" position.

Any idea what causing the problem?
