    Out of the blue, my Desktop Ethernet connected PC went into "airplane mode" although I have never touched the command. I plugged in a USB wireless adapter which allowed me to have internet access, but I would like to back to the wired connection. I cannot turn off Airplane mode, the slider defaults to the on position. Does anyone know what has happened?

    Sorry for the question. I removed the USB wireless and the wired connection functions properly now. I had tried warm and cold rebooting to no avail. For all I know, airplane mode may have been on all the time and my internet access crapped out for some unknown reason. I put the blame on airplane mode which is sort of a silly reason.
