What makes you think that the switch...is the problem?

Have you tried connecting via the wired ethernet connection?

The reason I believe it is going out is because sometimes I will get the laptop out of carrying case in the morning at work and for one reason or another the switch gets moved to off position and I will have to turn back on.When I try to turn on sometimes I will not get a green lite saying it is on and it seems like I have to fool with it for awhile sometimes before it clicks on and I get green light.So I figured that maybe the switch itself might be getting worn or something before it catches ?? Maybe something else could be causing that though ??Not for sure.Thanks

If it actually is the switch it wont be an easy thing to replace, if it can be done at all.
You might consider disabling the onboard wifi and getting a USB wifi adapter.
They are pretty cheap 50 bucks or so.
In the beginning there was the command line.
