Hi, you're right, it's softblocked

I successfully installed rfkill from the i586 repository and got this reply

0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
1: hp-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no

The led (function key) indicates that wlan should be working. Perhaps I made a configuration fault?
