I have a 4 year old Asus laptop that has been great through out the years. My son installed Skype and now it doesn't connect to the wireless network in my house on boot up. I have uninstalled Skype, but the problem still persists.
I have to run the trouble shooter and applied the fix it suggests. The problem found is, "Wireless capability is turned off." Applying this fix works every time until the machine is put to sleep or powered down, then it has to be done all over again. Curiously, when I press Fn + F2 I can disconnect from the wireless network, but when I press it again, it does nothing. I have to run the trouble shooter to connect again.
I have updated all my drivers directly from Intel and have made sure that the correct services and their depencies are all started. Nothing seems to work.
Another Problem Found that the Trouble Shooter detects is, "A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken." I have tried to fix this problem, but have not been successful. As far as I can tell, the cables are fine. I don't know if the two problems are related, I would think so.
Any suggestions on how to automatically connect to my wireless network without having to run the trouble shooter would be great. Thanks.
