So I got Backtrack 4 up and running on an old Acer Aspire 5570z and I'm having some wireless issues. The laptop has a wireless switch on the front, and I can turn it on every once and awhile, but when it's off it's very difficult to turn on. I guess the spring is worn out so a lot of the times it doesn't take when I switch it. Is there a way around the switch?

Thanks
