And what about turning it off after you boot? And yes, it is a solution. It was intended to work, with windows They didn't have linux in mind when they made the wireless switch, wether it's worked in the past or not.
Distribution: PCLinuxOS 2007 on my laptop and Suse 10.2 on my desktop.

Leaving it on is not the solution - but a temporary fix. I like things to work as intended :P
I have to agree with this.. as my problem is even worse than yours.
In 10.0 I could connect to any wireless network I wanted, and turn the wireless on and off with the button on my laptop easily. However, I installed Suse 10.2 and now my wireless connection won't work at all! The button on my laptop is not working, the LED light doesn't come on and I can't connect no matter what I do!
Sounds like a bug to me....
I have the same problem with my HP v3172, the led for wifi is flashing which frighten me!!!
I just come across other article that talk about ndiswrapper, i hope you can present your approach to your wifi with this software.
In fact my Suse 10.2 just failed booting, and i am using XP now. Hope i can return to Suse soon!
