The wireless card is built into my laptop, i can't physically remove
it (well, without unscrewing the botton with some special
screwdriver). There is a switch on the front that toggles some light
that shuts off the antenna power. Doing a cardctl eject/insert does
not help.

I actually shut down. Sleep doesn't work and suspend has other issues
at the moment :)
