There is two ways to enable/disable your wifi card on most laptops. One is a button or switch on the front or left side of the laptop. As an alternatively most laptops also have an FN key + Fkey combination such as FN+F2 on most Dell laptops.

This will turn on the card. You may still have your wifi connection disabled in windows so you may still have to go into your Network connections (Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Network Connections), right click on the wifi connection and enable.

    You may need drivers for the WiFi Adapter. Either download them or install them from the CD that came with your laptop or tell us the Make and model of your laptop.

    If you already have the drivers
    Start-->Settings-->Network Connections.

    Right click the Wireless Network Connection and click enable.

    Look for a tiny slide switch around the edge of the machine. Most of them have one to turn the card off.
