    I'm on a asus x71q laptop running windows 7.
    Yesterday I was working when suddenly I lost connection. It turns out my wireless button seems to have stopped working. That is, I can slide it back and forward, but all I get is a notification wireless is off. The wireless card is visible in my system, no errors (this device works correctly). cabled internet works fine. I haven't changed anything apart from changing something in tuneup utilities (wired connection from 120mb to 60mb). However, that setting I have already rolled back to the previous one.
    Any suggestion/help would be appreciated

    Sounds like the switch is defective, or the adapter is loose or defective.
