Subj: Wireless / WLAN switch not working on HP Pavilion g6 series

Hello everyone! I am wanting to resolve the WLAN problem (wireless light/button stays off) with the above laptop.

I have scoured the web, but my feeble mind is exhausted on this (quite possibly) simple issue. I still have a great deal to learn, it seems. :)

Network: Card: Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller
driver: r8169 v: 2.3LK-NAPI port: 3000 bus-ID: 01:00.0
IF: eth0 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: full mac:

Any suggestions to resolve this are most appreciated.

Thanks,

Chris
