What or where is the wireless switch for A505-S6960

Does anyone know what the wireless switch is for the Satellite A505-S6960 laptop?

Some how I turned it off without knowing.  The Connectivity Doctor program says the switch is off.  I'm using my old HP wireless laptop to list this request and my desktop PC (wired) has access to the internet.

 

Thanks.

Satellite A505-S6960 

 

The wireless switch is on the front near the left end.

 

To get started, see the section ConfigFree starting on p. 179 and also the section Wireless networking problems starting on p. 202 of the User's Guide.

I found another program with the toshiba laptop and the test says the Hardware Radio "Failed" because it is off.

Thank you Jerry.

It is greatly appreciated.

You were exactly right.

The switch is on the front left corner and it was in the off position.

I am replying using my Toshiba Laptop.

 

Thanks again, Gary
