Summary. Some HP Laptop/Notebook Computers do not have a switch or function key for turning WiFi on and off. Instead, the HP Wireless Assistant software is used.

Instructions. Unfortunately, the Turn Off / Turn On button within the HP Wireless Assistant isn’t visible unless there is a check next to “Independent controls for installed wireless devices.” So, if the wireless somehow gets disabled, this is one more hurdle the average user would be perplexed by. Once independent controls are enabled, then the on/off button is visible.
