Gateway LT2016u WiFi Won't Turn On - Connection Failed

Hi,

 

I cannot turn on the wifi on my gateway netbook

 

if i press the wifi button on the wifi icon appears on the screen but with a red circle and slash through it

 

3g connection / light is off

 

ive tried repairing local area connection ---> windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed. Connecting to the wireless network

 

wireless network adapter under the network connections shows not connected

 

ive manually added a dns address from a previous post but that didnt work

 

ive gone through vzam  option on disabling auto 3g - no go

 

ive gone through the network wizard - no go as well

 

after rebooting i turn off and 3g then wifi then off - i basically toggled the wireless button back and forth in frustration - FINALLY THE WIFI CAME ON....but then wifi turned off automatically

 

device manager shows the wireless adapter and drivers and device status says its working...but it obviously isn;t

 

what the?
