Built-in wireless button problem.

I have a HP Pavilian dv4017ap Centrino Laptop with ipw2200 built-in wireless thing, I have installed the ipw2200, ipw2200 firmware and IEEE thing; but the problem is that it requires to be turned on... there is a button on the keyboard that I could usually just press and turn on the wireless card on Windows XP SP2, but it doesn't work anymore under Linux. What can I do?

Any ideas? I really want to get this thing to work otherwise it would be useless without the internet.

Generally those buttons just give power to the card. Is this a duel boot? If so just make sure it's turned on in Windows and then boot to linux. Should stay on. Also try modprobe again.
