Default Cant switch On WIFI
I have just purchased the UX280p. After seeing how much Bloatware was loaded on the device, I decided to do a restore hoping that this would allow me to select which sofware to install. Unfortunately it re-installed all the bloatware. Anyway having done this I dicided to down load the drivers required for a clean install to my memory card. But found that I couldn't connect using wifi.

The problem is that when I switch on Wifi either from the Intel proset wireless menu, or wireless Zero configuration, i get the following error message:

The Intel(R) PrO/wireless connection is still disabled. use your hardware switch to enable it.

I've tired switching off and on from the switch on the left hand side but it still wont work.

any ideas?

Make sure what ever profile you are running in power management it is not turning it off maybe ? also go to start, network connections and enable wireless there, it could be that the intel wireless utility has not been set to control your wireless connection ?


PS, very good idea to do a clean install, I HATE BLOATWARE

Sometimes what happens is that the priveledge of controling your WiFi bounces back and forth between the Intel software, and Windows built in WiFi software, go down to your task bar and expand the icons next to your clock with the little arrows, check to see if Windows software is managing the wireless. Also like Sull said, be sure to check that your power management options don't have it disabled.
