Function F5 to keep turning on the WiFi card.

2014-09-03, 3:18 AM

Is there a way to either disable the ability to turn off the wifi on the S10 and S10-3 netbooks or to send a command from the command prompt that will re-inable the WiFi if a student has switched the wireless switch off and then logged off.


Here's my problem,


In some classrooms, students are flipping the wifi switch off or moving out of the range of the WiFi signal. Either way, when they go to log off and then log them back on the next morning they can't login with their AD account and the teacher will contact me to have me physically plug them back in so I can get into the Function F5 menu. I can go in and swtch the switch to the WiFi mode but I want the laptop upon boot to perform the Function F5 part and turn off the Wireless card so I don't have to connect the Ethernet and log them in wired to perform the Function F5.


So is there a command? Can I run a script before the computer turns on that would enable the WiFi provided that I flip the button on the side?
