My laptop's way to turn the wireless on (something that has to be done everytime it is switched on, annoyingly.) is to press 2 key's together.
I've tried doing this, but nothing.

Hi, I'm using fedora 11 and find that sometimes the wireless just turn off by itself. The wifi LED goes OFF and Network Device Control->wlan0 becomes inactive. It usually happens when I open for a long time ( 24 hr ?) I try turning off the wireless and turning on. But only rebooting solves the problem...
I disable my wireless with Alt+F2 in asus netbook, and it gets switched off. ifconfig does not show wlan0 as one of the adaptors. Then, I put my netbook on suspend by closing the lid. When I open the lid, the wireless is switched on again, on its own.
Most of the times, I don't need or have a wireless network, and I work on LAN. Having the wireless radio on drains the battery.
