Lightbulb Fujitsu Amilo - How to turn on Wireless at startup

I found this little tip & thought I should share..

Problem:
The wireless connection is off when you start Windows on Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo laptop

Solution:
Make sure you have "Launch Manager" installed, this can be found on the Fujitsu Siemens Driver site.

Then in Notepad copy the following:
Code:
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")
do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop
WScript.Sleep 100
WshShell.sendkeys("{TAB}{TAB}{LEFT}~")
Save this file as "<somename>.vbs" somewhere on the Hard drive.
Copy a short cut of the .vbs file and drag it into your "Start Menu / Programs / Startup" to ensure it starts automatically when rebooting.

I have used this script on a few Amilo laptops. It works very well. I still think it's very strange to have Wi-Fi turned off by default with no way for the end user to change it.
