    Radio disabled on WiFi Link 5100

    CRSwager

      I have an ASUS G60Vx laptop with a Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN card.  The laptop has two hard drives and I can boot Windows 7 from either of them.  With one OS there is no WiFi capability because the WiFi Radio is off (even though it is not physically off) and with the other OS the WiFi works fine.

       

      I have downloaded the version 14.3.2.1 driver for the Link 5100 and installed on both OS's.  So the problem is not with the driver and it is not with the hardware.

       

      In poking around in the registry I have found that the value for RadioEnable is 0 for the system with the problem and it is 1 for the system that works in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0011.  This seems to be a major clue.  But how is this value set without modifying the registry directly?
