Good little machine, only runs Windows Vista Home but is quiet, light and runs Vista at speeds that are the same as XP.  The one downside is the Wireless adapter.  For reasons best known to Fujitsu they decided the wireless adapter would only activate if the Wireless key is pressed after login.  This fires up a Windows app which then allows you to activate the wireless.  Bit of a pain.  To automate this process the vbscript attached can be run at login.  It calls the wireless activation dialogue and then sends the keystrokes to it that would normally be used.  The Radioon.vbs script needs to be adjusted so that the sleep times allows other jobs to complete that take the focus away from the wireless activation.  Currently it's set to 30 seconds


Wscript.Sleep 30000
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")
do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
WScript.Sleep 100
Wscript.Echo "Networking as been activated, you may continue normally"
wscript.echo "This screen will close when network connections have been made"
Wscript.Sleep 20000

To call RadioOn.vbs use a cmd file:


@echo off
cscript //nologo c:\RadioOn.vbs
