Wireless networking does not work after reinstall of Windows XP on Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo L1310G

So you reinstall Windows XP on a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo L1310G, using ordinary retail disk and not the restore disk which originally came with the laptop.

First you bump into the problem of missing drivers, which can be solved by fetching the drivers from here.

But then you stumble upon another problem – the Wi-Fi does not work. The hardware, the drivers seem to be Ok. But at the Wireless Network Connection it says “not connected”. The Wi-Fi light is off. Pressing the special button in the four-button row above the keyboard does nothing. You may search for the wireless networks, but it finds none.

The solution is counterintuitive. You have to fetch the “Power Manager silent mode/RF” utility for another laptop model (AMILO A1655G) here, and install it. This takes care of the functionality of the dedicated Wi-Fi button ant lets you switch on the wireless networking. You press the button, the blue LED goes on, voila…!

    Thanks for this tip, i have a 1655g and did a re-install of XP and i didn’t know how to get Wifi button working. I didn’t know that the Power manager also utilises the Wifi button! Thanks again..

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a
    lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can
