Usually the wlan button is off because you're WLAN is not on, you need to locate this button and press it to enable your WLAN. The button is usually located on either the upper left or upper right corner of your keyboard. You will know if you hit the correct button because you'll get a pop up on the lower left corner of your screen saying that WLAN is on.
You can click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run > on the Run Window type in services.msc > press enter > then scroll and look for WLAN Configuration > it has a start or stop option, make sure that the button start is grayed out or press on start to enable wlan
you sould be getting a message again telling you that wlan is enable or already on
Not sure if this will work for your model but its worth a try. Copied from MSI support faq website
You have to press the WLAN button located right next to the power button in order to enable/disable the Bluetooth function. Press WLAN button once, Enable WLAN. Press WLAN button twice, Enable Bluetooth. Press WLAN button thrice, Enable both WLAN and Bluetooth. Press WLAN button four times, Disable both WLAN and Bluetooth.
Its possible that your wlan switch is set to the off position try to find a wlan switch and slide or press the button to turn wlan on.
BTW Sony has the wlan switch on the right side,
Acer usually has the switch on the front
HP has a button on near the keyboard
Compaq also has a button near the key board

If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.
