Windows 7: How to make the internal wireless adapter be enabled on boot?

How to make the internal wireless adapter be enabled on boot?

Today I installed windows 7 on my laptop. After installation of drivers and updates, I found the wireless adapter was not
enabled by default. Then I checked the device manager to make sure that my driver worked. I didn't find any question marks
or exclamation marks in device manager. And then I tried a restart of my computer. But the adapter still stayed disabled.
Then I tried pressing the combination of fn + f12, finally the adapter came to alive. And I could successfully connect to the
router and surf the Internet, but after another reboot, the adapter didn't show up automatically, instead I had to press that
combination of fn + f12 again. Before this installation, my computer usually worked automatically with wireless adapter
loaded on boot. So I wanna know how I could make the internal wireless adapter be enabled on boot without turn it on
manually.

Thanks.

Have a look inside the BIOS settings. I believe the button to get to the BIOS while the PC is booting up is F10 .

It probably would help if you tell people the model of your laptop. Maybe some setting on the software that manages your wireless. Have you had a look at your user manual already?

Hi, VistaKing. You are totally right. I set the BIOS to its default, everything turned out to be normal again. Thanks for anyone who is trying to help. Peace.
