    Wireless Networking: Available, but not on Zorin OS Linux

    I've posted about this here before, but I could not get results that solved it. I have more details.

    On my cousin's computer Windows 7, Wireless was working GREAT. I booted Zorin from the CD, same result. GREAT. So I entered my WiFi Password, it tried connecting, connected. I rebooted the system (I needed to shut it down.) I did not install Zorin, Windows is still default and only OS on the computer. I booted Zorin again after five minutes. From the live CD and tried connecting the WiFi. Entered the password "Connecting, Connecting. Disconnected. Wireless is disabled by hardware switch." So it's definitely OS related. It also broke my WiFi keyboard button. The f5 light for WiFi was stuck only when I tried Linux on it.

    Getting back to my issue, my "WiFi is disabled by hardware switch." It worked a while back when I had Windows 7 and Ubuntu but now after Zorin installed, it's just disabled. How can I fix this?

    Solutions

    I already did FN + F5 (WiFi enabled/disabled). I already went to BIOS, WiFi is enabled.
