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).

Are you sure that Fn+F2 doesn't work? On my Dell, it appears to be hardware controlled (it works no matter what distro I have running, but the LED doesn't).
