above the top of the keyboard (most Compaq/HP models) that looks like a microphone with signals coming out of it. This is their wifi antenna symbol.
On some models it is on the Left side of the unit.
press the button and a blue/purple light should turn on as well. This is the wifi adapter.

If it will not turn on here, r. click on network places -- select properties -- and r. click on Wireless Network Connection and choose either 'enable' (if disabled) or 'repair'

If you are feeling about for a button that sticks out, you're wasting your time (or at least I was wasting MY time when I was looking for it!).

On the front edge, to the left hand side, you may find a little slider that moves from left to right (ON is to the RIGHT) - this slider is FLUSH with the rest of the fascia, and to make matters worse the fascia is grooved, presumably to look and feel groovy! :^0
