Wireless Connection physical connection hardware switch

This is almost embarassing to ask, BUT:
Where (what is) the wireless connection hardware switch on a TOSHIBA Satellite R15 Tablet Computer?

I have used this computer wirelessly for four years and now it will not connect.

Apparently during a resent automatic update the Intel software was "updated" (at least I never saw the
Intel PROSet/Wireless manager before).

Now the Intel PROSet/Wireless manager is telling me the Connection is disabled. "Use your hardware switch to enable it".

Where would the hardware switch be?

All of the normal network connections of are upsurped by the Toshiba addons. But none that I have found turn the wireless connectionon.

So to answer your "normal" questions "Been there done that" it doesn't work.

This is something specific to TOSHIBA and the Intel PROset Wireles connection.

In services.msc   Wireless Zero Configuration the device is turned off. Hitting Start starts the service

But I still get the "Not Connected" status in Network Connections.

And the Intel PROSet/Wireless controller still tells me to "Use the hardware switch to enable it".

I do not have any idea where else to turn for help as I do not have any service contracts with TOSHIBA or Intel.

Take a look for a blue item on one of the keys that looks like a stick with parenthisis around it, sort of like a radio tower. I do believe it is actived with one of the Function Keys.
