Today for no apparent reason, my netbook wifi does not detect any wifi signals.

Running Windows 7, Atheros adapter.

I've tried Reinstalling the chip set drivers, the Wlan drivers.

I ran an Error check.

Device manager shows that 'this device is working properly' -- yet no wifi.

I can plug in my external wifi antenna, and I get wifi just fine.

Unless the internal wifi hardware just died, I do not know of any software solutions.

Any help appreciated.

Reboot router? (I know, but just in case)

Routers are not the problem.

My netbook red/orange wifi light does not come on.

Windows can not install a driver for the internal wifi adapter. (tried Uninstalling drivers)

Opening up the bottom panel, I saw nothing loose, or damaged about the wifi chip.

I am on the Internet just fine, using the external wifi adapter/booster.

Did you accidentally hit the turn off wifi key? Usually something like Function+7

OOPS ! :s I appologize to all.

There is a small, almost unnoticable switch under the wifi light -- Never noticed it was there.

Problem FIXED ! :D

Thanks.
