This issue has been permanantly been resolved by Fujitsu Siemens on the li2727 with a bios update on 21.05.2009 so for anyone else stumbling on this article the permanant solution that is no dependent on any batch files etc is as follows:

Go to
http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/com/suppo ... ctID=25387

untick the box marked 'Show only supported operating systems'

this will open up a disclaimer click on the 'Close Information' arrow

(you may need to wait for options to appear)

click on the + sign next to 'Other Operating System'

(you may need to wait for options to appear)

then select the 'Embedded Operating System' radial button

(you need to wait for options to appear)

then click the + symbol next to 'Flash Bios'

The latest one is at the top 'current BIOS V. 1.10: Solved problems: - WLAN RF will be automatically turned off after rebooting.

There are options for applying the update:

You can make a floppy disk (not sure how you use it without a floppy disk drive, unless you have a usb one of course),

or a bootable cd image which you can burn then boot your pc with,

or use the windows flash utility install and run it on your pc.

I used the windows flash utility as it is a 32 bit windows application that runs just fine on Vista so is therefore the easiest way IMHO.

This is a pretty straight forward activity if you are competent pc user.

Just follow the instructions for the BIOS flash in the file readme.txt

Make sure the AC power is plugged in as if you run out of power or if you mess it up or stop it halfway through you may render your machine inoperable.

I used to be a desktop support engineer and have done this many many times using floppy disks on IBM laptops without any problem of any sort.

If once you have read the instructions you dont feel comfortable then dont do it, call Fujitsu Siemens and they should be able to talk you through it.

Enjoy

Hi!
First, thanks for this help. My situation is the same. But with a difference.
I put the vbs. file in the Startup folder. It's OK, but when I start the laptop, a message appears. Here it is:

"Commands sequency
C:\Users\User\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Wireless.vbs
Line: 2
Character: 1
Error: System can't found specificated file.

Code: 80070002
Origin: WshShell.Exec"

Sorry if it's something wrong, i traduced it from the spanish (yeah, I'm spanish LOL)

All of this is in Windows 7.
What can I do?
Thank you so much, people! See ya!

When I added the script as instructed, it was not working. It was giving error on 2nd line. But hen I double clicked the script , it started switching on / off the WiFi. After this exercise the WIFI starts every time I Boot. (I am not sure why it was not working earlier)

Thanks for a nice utility.

Why don't you flash the bios, then you won't need the script :D

Many thanks for this. I bought this laptop for my daughter many months ago and at the time I spent a lot of time looking for a solution to this problem. I didn't spot it when I ordered the machine. At the time I gave up so this is very welcome. It does, however, beggar belief that this appears to be the first time a solution has been posted. This is a clear mistake in the design of this laptop, how many other laptops require this manual intervention EVERY time you boot the machine? Unbelievable decision. And yet, and despite the many requests for a solution to this issue, and as far as I know, there has been NOTHING from support. I have certainly steered clear of anything made by Fujitsu Siemens since and will continue to do so.

Go to the Fujitsu Siemens 'Support' page and download all the Win 7 drivers - your buttons will then work :wink:

This is the correct script for the .vbs script to work in 64 bit Win 7

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")
do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop
WScript.Sleep 100
WshShell.sendkeys("{TAB}{TAB}{LEFT}~")

Hi Everybody

I do not like the script solution. I wrote a small (window-less/console) utility to switch wireless on/off.
You can run it on startup: pls look at ReadMe.txt for install instructions. It is working fine on my AMILO Li 2732.
The utility should work for bluetooth and UMTS as well.

Your feedback is wellcome. If somebody needs a x64 bit verion, pls conact me.

best regards
Blue Jeans
