    This is my friend's Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727 laptop. It's running Windows Vista Home (Basic), SP2.

    She claims that when here, at home, the wireless does not work. I ran the diagnostic and it said wireless was not turned on, and that I needed to either find the wireless switch on the laptop itself (which there isn't one) or use the function shortcut (which is Fn + F1). It appears that non of the Fn keys are working, e.g. screen brightness etc. and this may be the only reason why we can't turn the wireless on. However, she claims that the wireless works in some other locations, e.g. at her boyfriends or on uni campus.

    Some guy behind the tech desk at uni said it could be conflicting anti-virus software, but we uninstalled it all and still nothing.

    Has anyone any suggestions?

    Kind regards
