I found some information to run a test and discovered that my Pro Wireless (Intel) has been disabled. There seems to be information on how to check things but I cannot find out how to ENABLE it or TURN IT ON.

THIS WAS ALL WORKING FINE UNTIL THE OTHER DAY AND POOF... DISABLED But I cannot find hardware or software by that name. AND... No where can I find information on how to find the switch and Enable it OR turn it on.

So how do I enable my wireless switch on my HP Pavilion dv4000
