Yesterday evening, my connection was working perfectly well. Then I connected to my school's wifi this morning, fine. As I was switching it on, my friend pressed my wifi button. I shut down my computer, 3 minutes later, I switched my laptop on again, it showed 'wireless disabled by hardware switch'.
I tried to press it in different ways, like 5 seconds or double. All I could do is switch the bluetooth on and off. Some times the 'by hardware switch' disappears leaving the disabled behind. I'm using ubuntu 11.04, a single OS in Compaq Presario CQ60 104TU. Please help me with this, I have no idea what it is. I searched all over the cyber world but I didn't find anything that helped me.I only had it working fine for a night Please reply.
