i know i know... "lurk more" but anyway I have an IBM R51 and for a long time avoided updating to SP2 because I had this problem the last time i updated (and then went back to my restore point). My wireless was working fine before the updated (i downloaded sp2 wirelessly) but now that I have updated, the IBM access connections program is telling me that it cannot turn on my wireless radio and thus cannot find a connection. Is there anything I can do to remedy this situation easily? Perhaps a way to get rid of the IBM program that would allow my computer to just search for a wireless signal without being ensured that the radio is on? Thanks in advance.
