Function Key Combination to Turn On Wireless?

When i turn the computer on, the Wireless LAN window pops up and says my wireless is on
but when i try to connect to a network it says
Turn on wireless capability using a switch or a function key combination.
well the switch is on, but the green light by it isn't.
What is the function key combination?

I have a Sony Vaio laptop model PCG-7141L

Try to check the bios settings if WIFI is enabled. because if you turned on the switch but if it's disabled in the BIOS, it'll still won't work. :)
