I can't turn on the "wireless turn on" button in the windows mobility center because it's light grey - how can I turn it on and how can I get wireless work? Thanks for your help.

Try Services and scroll down to WLAN and make sure it is set to automatic.

Thanks, I set it on automatic and it's still the same.. Also my HP Wireless Assistant tells me Status "Disabled" and the "Turn off" (the disabled status) button is not clickable / light grey - any other thoughts?!

Have you accidentally turned off WI FI, the switch is usually at the front Right hand side on laptops.

Try pressing the F12 key.

F12 does nothing; I get nowhere in the mobility centre because the button is not clickable. There is a little button thing on the front right on my laptop, but I can't press it, I think it may just be a light when wireless is turned on (?) -- Any other thoughts?? Thanks!!!

What model is it? On my HP G56 model I only press F12 without the FN key. We could search for how to enable wlan on your model.
