Win 7 in 'windows mobility center' red X in to right 'wireless off'.
'turn wireless on' is not shaded and does not respond; hence unable to turn wireless function back on

T is underlined--how to activate from keyboard, but unlikely to mork.
Is there another place to turn wireless function back on?
thanks

Are you saying that if you open the Network and Sharing Centre and click "Connect to a Network, (which opens available networks) and you click your connection, ie the router, the connect button won't work?

Or is your router not listed at all?

Yes it does help that the wireless connection is actually switched on on the laptop.
