Laptop Tosh Equium turns off wireless networking when booting
My laptop insists on turning off wireless networking at start up even though
the switch on the side of the laptop is in the on position. This is very
annoying, does anyone know how to fix this as I always want windows to boot
with wireless on. Many Thanks for any replies.

Hi Pete,

Wireless networking, or any other device for that matter, cannot be "on"
until the drivers for it are loaded. Plus, in this case, it's something that
you absolutely do not want to have on until a firewall is in place. Again,
this is software that needs to be initialized, not something that is just
"there" when you power on.

Pete,

When the laptop boots with wireless off, how does the wireless get turned on?
