Check in your BIOS to see if there's a setting that allows only ethernet or wireless and not both at once. Change that if you can find it.

I was having a problem with an MSI Wind U100 - problems connecting to my wireless network .
After a some time spent searching with no luck I figured out that on that model (MSI U100) at least in my case Fn & Ctrl keys are switched, so instead of Fn & F11 pressing Ctrl & F11 does the trick of enabling WiFi... hope this helps.

Hi All, i had the same problem with my MSI u100. it drove me mad. some buttons on the keyboard would not work. no back space no delete and the wireless would not switch on.
ANYWAY i have solved the issue and i was amazed.
(To turn the wireless on you must press FN F11),
but it would not switch on because the problem is in the keyboard cable connection.
(the problem was the keyboard cable not correctly connected ).
these laptops have a temperamental keyboard cable connector and for some reason dislodge.
when i got the keyboard off i immediately noticed half the cable was not correctly in the slot and hence all the problems.
once i managed to get it back in EVERYTHING WORKED 100%.
so you need to check your keyboard cable connection
go here to learn how to remove the keyboard. VERY EASY

ON A SEPARATE NOTE
NOW
: if you are having issues starting the laptop and going to windows XP please do the following.
switch off
take out battery
hold down power button for 20 seconds.
replace battery
NOW WITHOUT TURNING ON HOLD DOWN THE F3 key.
while holding down the F3 key switch it on.
it will now reload the original bios and windows xp system files.
follow the onscreen instructions.
it works perfectly now no drama, IT TOOK LESS THAN 15 MINUTES.
God bless and I hope this helps all.
cheers
