Im using an Acer Aspire 3502WLCi, and cannot enable radio. I tried using Atheros Client Utility but the option for "enable radio" is greyed out. Im using ar5211.sys. Ived surfed through forums, and cant find info on this specific model i.e. physical switch etc. Thanks!

Feels weird to reply to myself, but i found out how to enable my radio! After reading through forums, i d/l'ed acer launch manager, setup everything and rebooted. Worked like a charm! There is a physical wifi switch on this model (either the planet button on the left of the power button, or the actual led with the sattelite icon below the track-pad) but hitting these, and trying fn keys didnt work. Hope this helps!

Thanks for responding with the solution, bcy. It was the right thing to do - saves getting any redundant input from anyone when the question was sorted, and it may help someone else in the future having the same problem.
