on one of my laptops ( m45-s269) the switch doesnt not come one whehn turned on and off. Because of that the wireless internet doesnt work an it has to be connected to the router or modem.

does anyone know why this happens? Of the switch just needs a new driver or something.

FWIW, I've got the exact same model and it works fine. There's no specific driver for the switch, and I don't recall a hotkey combination for it either. I'd suggest a PC repair shop to check the switch and the wireless card.
