Windows 7: Wireless

Wireless

I have recently upgraded to Windows 7. After upgrading I was unable to turn my wireless on. The problem is not the drivers as Windows show that the driver is updated when I go to Device manager Network adapters - Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter: Properties Driver Update Divers...

I have a LG E200 notebook and to turn on the wireless you use Fn f6. The rest of the function keys work. If anyone knows how this problem can be fixed please let me know. Thanks

Did you by chance have your wireless off when you installed 7?

Well...in my case I attempted to install drivers and even took the laptop open to see if the card unplugged itself...

In the end I made sure the switch for the wireless was on and reinstalled 7

In your case...lets not go that far yet okay? Open up Device Manger and uninstall the Wireless Card. Also tick the box "Delete Driver Software" and hit okay. Reboot and let it install your Wireless Card again and lets see if it works

There is no driver for windows 7, so I used the vista 32-bit driver. It installed but still nothing..

Is there a Hotkey driver/utility from the vendor site, if so, try installing that also.
