TC1100 Wireless light off, don't know how to turn it on

I have a TC100 which I can no longer connect to a WLAN here, I noticed the wireless light is off, but I can't find how to turn it on.

I have another TC100 which has the light on and it connects as normal. The light is the third, on the right at the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

Any help is appreciated
:)

Hi,

Should be in the manual or in this:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11755_na/11755_na.HTML

Well, I can not see a switch in this, that means no switch, the light should come on when the laptop connects to a wireless network or access point.

You can Open Network connection, find the access point (network, SSID) and click Connect. If this is a security enabled network, it should ask you a password/passphrase.

The light should come on when connection establshed.

Hello--
Are you able to use the QMenu to toggle it back on? Wireless on/off is an item on the QMenu list.

Chris was right on. It was in the QMenu. Fixed problem instantly.

Derrek,
I don't see what's the matter with your machine:
Does Q-Menu not work at all or just the option to turn Wireless on and off??

I am trying to do just that but I am missing the wireless option in the Q menu. How do you add it? I updated the Q menu from the HP website to the latest and then install all the latest updates from Microsoft.
Thanks

Rainald, the Q Menu works but it will not allow for the turning on of the wireless feature

OK, that was my mistake. I forgot to enable the wireless in the BIOS. Now it on, even though it is not listed in the options of the Q menu. It is just somehow displayed when I push the Q menu.

Derreck,
is the option there and not greyed out?
Did you check the settings in the BIOS?

I didn't find how to change in the set-up Bios - I suppose

I need to re'install Q Menu, but I don't know how
