Answers :

I believe that you can turn these functions on and off via the Network Connections that you can access from the control panel.

In Windows XP:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Click on Network Connections

In Windows Vista:
Click on START button
Select Control Panel
Select Network and Internet
Select Network and Sharing Center
In left panel, select Manage Network Connections

Once here, you should see your wireless adapter and your bluetooth adapter. If you Right-Click on either connection, a menu will pop up and you can choose to Enable or Disable the connection without the button on the front of your computer.

Hope this helps.

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
