Looks like some BIOS routine to me. On my acer TM 803 I can turn the card on/
off with a special key on the front side of my laptop. This works with
ndiswrapper too. If the wireless was enabled on startup, the led flashes(or
is permanetly on when connected to an AP) and the card connects to the AP.
When I disable it, the led goes off, the essid is lost. After enabling it
again I have to re-set the WEP key, essid follows automatically. I can enable
it after bootup if it was disabled before, but I have to set the WEP key.
The system(Bios, Card, Driver??) remembers the wlan state afer a shutdown.
Windows XP enables it always.
