Solved Turn on wireless capability

August 6, 2007 at 17:28:50
Specs: Vista Home Premium, AMD Turion TL-50 / 1 GB

All of a sudden I have no wireless Internet connectivity on my Netgear 4 port wireless "G" router. Everything works perfectly wired (ethhernet).

Vista tels me "Wireless capability on this computer is turned off" (I certainly did nothhing to turn it off.)

> Turn on wireless capability
This can be done by using a switch, which is ususlly found on the front side of the computer, or a function key combination.
Click here to close this dialog box.

What switch or function key is Vista talking about?

Ignore the message. Doesn't mean anything. Programmers idea of a joke, I'll bet.

In device manager is the wireless card enabled? In lan properties is the wireless enabled?

Is it the router, laptop hardware or vista?

If you have a friend who can connect wirelessly to your router we can eliminate the router.

Any new software installs? Last time you ran an virus and spyware checker? Recent vista update? I had to go back on one because is hosed my wireless networking. Loaded a deterministic lan driver that crashed on bootup.

Just looking for clues at the scene of the crime :-)

Are you ready for where Microsoft wants you to go today?
