Hi there,

I've recently reinstalled Windows 7 on my laptop (Amilo xi3650), and unlike the previous time I have reinstalled Windows this time the Wireless wasn't working. I have updated drivers but the ipconfig still shows the WLAN as disconnected, and the Function-F1 key brings up connection options but these are greyed out. I wouldn't have expected this to be a hardware error as the computer hasn't been knocked around and it was working fine just prior to reinstallation, but I suppose its possible? I've also tried uninstalling & reinstalling, disabling and then re-enabling the wireless driver but that didn't make a difference.

One thing is that my BIOS doesn't have an option to switch on WLAN or any sort of network options.

Anyway, this is my ipconfig /all. Any advice would be really appreciated!
