I have got the System Software Media Disc when I insert the disc what happens if I choose Standard Installation.Does it have any effect on what is saved on the hard drive ie will we lose things like photos and letters which are saved on ther is it ok to prceed with a standard installation and will this allow me to set it up for wireless again.

It is unlikely that it needs to be set up again. Unlikely but not impossible though. More likely is that accidentally a switch or key has been touched. Have you tried F9?

It would look like a Beacon sending out radio waves.

Try services and make sure WLAN is set to automatic.

Not sure if a system restore would fix the problem or not.

The Wireless key on your laptop is F9 (you may need to press the Fn at the same time).
