On many of these machines a HELPER APPLICATION which runs at boot time hooks into that FN+F1.
No. I do not recall which one this laptop used. For Dell it's QuickSet and on Toshiba they use TVAP. Research what this maker used.
What I find interesting is that some users go for a "CLEAN INSTALL" yet forget to install this.
Wirless icon is found on the task bar and in 'network connections' but i get the message 'WiFi is turned off'.
I press the FN and F1 keys to switch it on but nothing happens. Any ideas please?.Thanks
ps Atheros wirless card and Win XP
