|Thanks for the function key suggestion. Function and F5 shows a small message that says WLAN is Off. No matter how many times I press the combination, the message doesn't change and all the other messages I mentioned previously stay the same.|
The wireless worked perfectly fine prior; it's just that the hard drive died and was replaced. I reloaded Windows and all service packs and security updates, etc. Wired Internet works fine; I've been online all day with it trying to find help.
PS: The PC is a Gateway laptop and Gateway's technical support is almost non-existent since the unit is out of warranty. You folks here are my only economical source for help. Please don't give up on me.
