Failing a hardware solution you should be able to disable wireless in the wireless adapter's own Windows utilities or via Windows Networking. May not achieve savings in power drain, though.
Greetings everyone, I just did a clean Windows Xp install on my laptop and I have run into problems setting up my wireless conection.
Thing is, I cannot set up my wireless connection if my wireless (adapter?) cannot even turn on/off. The only way I know how to do this is by pressing FN+F2 on my keyboard. So if anyone knows another way to turn it on or off or what could be the problem of my keyboard's fn+f2 not functioning properly, any advice is greatly appreciated.
btw: the dimming of the monitor's brightness by pressing fn+f7 or Fn+F8 work, so It is not the keyboard malfunctioning.
Windows Xp SP2
Pentium 4 3.20Ghz
480Mb of Ram
one more thing, The option to go to Stand-by is grayed out on the "Turn off Computer" options and I cannot put my system to stand-by, any fix to this?
