On the original distro pressing "Fn + F2" key combination toggles the wifi card from on to off.

Anyone know how to manage that on a generic, non eeePC tuned, distribution ?
I'd be even happy to run a command (or script to turn it on) but do not want to leave it allways on from bios (to save pattery life when unused).

Well it looks like that if one enables correctly the ASUS ACPI interface you can get control over the integrated devices trough /proc/acpi/asus/

Echoing 1 or 0 in the appropriate device interface wil turn on and off the devices.

For example
echo 1 > /proc/acpi/asus/wlan
will turn on the wireless lan device
