My friends son has a mobile PIII laptop which had wireless working fine. The boy did something and now the wireless device is not in the Device manager and it seems like wireless is not even on the machine. It was at one time and was working find any ideas. there is no device in the device manager and scanning for changes does not show the device. the machine is a Dell Latitude C610

Is there a button or switch on the case that can disable/enable the wireless?

Has he hit FN + F2 ? This diables the wireless connection. By holding FN and hitting F2 again it will be enabled.
