I have an Acer aspire 5742 laptop, and I don't know if this is a problem or just the way this laptop usually works, my 'wireless' automatically starts when the laptop boots up, now after it has fully booted I can not switch it off (fn + f3 buttons) I can switch it off during the boot up process by pressing the Fn + F3 buttons but not when it is up and fully running, the same applies, if I turn the wireless off during the boot up I can't turn it back on when its fully 'booted' (windows loaded) by pressing (tapping) the Fn + F3 buttons, the only way to start the wireless is switching the laptop off and restarting, this is a bit of a 'pain' if I think I am not going to use the 'net', so I switch the wireless off at the startup but then decide I want to browse to 'net' after a while, I have to 'restart' my laptop.....Is this usual for Acer laptops, or have I a problem, I have looked to see if there is a 'wireless' switch somewhere but can't find any
I am running Windows 7, 64bit
Any advice would be grateful.....Thank you
