Sure do hope someone here has the solution to this:
I have wireless adapter in my Gateway laptop.
When trying to use/enable it I keep getting a error message of:
"The radio on your 802.11 network adapter is still disabled. Use the Radio Control Switch to Enable it."
This used to work without a hitch; but after installing a bunch of updated drivers (using Driver Robot), it refuses to function.
HOW do I fix this??
I've updated drivers until I'm nearly "blue in the face", tried this, tried that, still no luck....
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Is the adapter normally switched on via a physical switch on the laptop case or by Fn key combination ?
Normal operation before this problem was to CLICK on a control to enable it.
It's a Gateway laptop, card etc. is internal...
Have tried un-installing, you name it - without positive results.
Thanks in advance...
Since any other solution seems to be unavailable; WHAT would happen IF I both deleted the hardware (Device Manager) and REMOVED it with Ad/Remove Programs?
Any chance the System might re-install it upon re-boot???

It's worth trying.
I would also go into the BIOS screens and turn off any features or ports you don't need -- e.g. Parallel Printer Port (if any) because fewer devices running in Windows might clear a resource clash
