Hi

My brother has this HP laptop and wireless networking worked just fine until he switched the laptop off overnight. Next morning, just no wifi.

There is no switch or button to re-activate the Broadcomm wireless adapter, no FN key, zilch.

Any idea how to fix this? I am 2 hours drive away from him and he is an absolute noob on Linux in a small town.

Remove charger and battery, hold down power button for 30 seconds. Replace battery/charger and see if it works.
