i got a new hp6930p laptop. after installation (fan-always on disabled in bios) of ubuntu 8.10 amd64 alternate most things work, except wireless.
>sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
>sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
>sudo iwlist wlan0 scanning
wlan0 No scan results

the wireless touchbutton/switch above the keyboard is always colored orange which, reading the manual, means "off". does not change when i touch it.
how can i activate the wireless-switch?
thank you in advance,
