I am having trouble connecting to the internet because my WLAN has been turned off, how do I turn my wireless back on?


From the HP website:

The power to the wireless network and bluetooth devices is controlled by a switch or button on most computers. It is possible to accidentally bump the button and turn off the wireless service. c02230159.jpg On most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or disabled. Some newer models use different a different color scheme. To turn on and enable the wireless device, do the following:
  1. To turn on the wireless device, simply move the switch to the on position. On some computers, the switch is actually a touch point on the panel above the keyboard.
  2. To enable the wireless device, right-click the HP Wireless Assistant (disabled) icon c02228164.gif and select Open Wireless Assistant . Click Turn On . The HP Wireless Assistant (enabled) icon c02228163.gif will display.

Switch to Wireless


Basically you could right click on the wireless icon in your systray (to the left of your clock usually) and select "View available networks" then click the "Refresh list" in the window that comes up and select the wireless network you want to connect to and then click the connect button at the bottom right corner of that same window. That should do it.
