    there is a very simple hardware hack to overcome the wireless signal kill on the Amilo 2727 li (Atheros AR5001 to 5005) that involves less than 5 mins with a screwdriver and a piece of masking tape.
    Ive tried it and it works a dream

    Instructions can be found here

    ok, for anyone googling and ending up here, there's a bios update (1.10) for the Amilo li2727 that leaves the wireless in an enabled state which seems to have fixed the hotkey problem

    Even though I'm a man, I want to have your babies. Thanks! =D>

    Finally got wireless working using this on my AmiloPa3515

    This also helped me on my amilo 2727, so I my screwdriver could be left in its case!
