How to Disable the Wireless on an Eee PC

The wireless adapter on your Asus Eee laptop PC keeps you connected to your business through available Wi-Fi hot spots. However, when wireless networks are unavailable, disabling the wireless adapter will conserve battery power. The convenient function keys offer quick control over the laptop's wireless capabilities. If you never use the device's wireless feature, you can also disable the wireless adapter through BIOS, so you don't have to manually disable it each time you restart the computer.
