Seems there are several models of the CQ60 such as CQ60-215DX, CQ60-417DX.
Do you know the full model #?
Did you look in bios for a setting to enable/disable this?
Did you reset bios to default after re-assembling the laptop?
I found this in a Wireless User Guide:
A wireless device can be turned on or off using the Wireless Assistant software. If a wireless device is disabled by the Setup Utility, it must be reenabled by the Setup Utility before it can be turned on or off using Wireless Assistant.
