DELL latitude wifi (intel proset) connection problem


Hi guys

I'm using a Dell latitude with windows 7 and the Intel Proset to manage my wifi connections. This worked fine until a few days a go, I'm using the wifi connection at my work and suddenly I'm unable to enable my wifi using the Intel Proset, it says: "the Wifi radio has been disabled by your IT administrator. It can not be used at this time."


I'm logged in as ,and only, admin on this laptop. Next to that I'm using xampp for some Drupal projects on port 80 and IIS for some http://asp.net/ asp.net projects maybe that these have something to do with my problem?

Anybody any idea's on how to solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi jackijax, you may start your system with a clean boot in order to determine if some other software is interfering.

I am thinking, could this be caused by a Wi-Fi software switch (besides a hardware switch) provided by the system manufacturer?
