Thanks for the information Kevin - most informative.
I inadvertently turned off my wireless on my Packard Bell EasyNote, and it is in the same position at home as it always is yet wireless will NOT turn back on. Wireless is enabled via Control Panel and our other laptop sitting 2 feet away is merrily seeing the six or seven networks operating in our neighbourhood, but not my little PB. I have pressed Fn + F1 a thousand times, refreshing the network list each time, to no avail, so I can only assume that the switch is kaput.
I don't suppose you or anyone else knows of a software way of switching the darn thing back on? I have tried searching the PB site, but my model number is not mentioned anywhere in the support pages, so that seems to be a dead end - the computer is only 5 years old and already been deleted and ignored by the manufacturer.... Grrrr.
Any help would be much appreciated.
