Hardware radio switch is turned off

I have turned on the WI FI in all areas it can be on, but I still get this message that the hardware radio switch is turned off. I have checked device manager and all drivers are updated.  Where is this hardware radio switch located??  this is a Compaq 6710b notebook.

Hi Vicki, thanks for your post.

 

The hardware switch on your 6710b is located above the left side of the keyboard.  Here is a diagram which illustrates it clearly:
