There is no hard switch for the wifi radio in your laptop model. Look at the Function Keys and tap the key that enables wifi radio

There is a button on the front casing on the right side of the lower panel with a radar like symbol. Press this and WiFi is enabled.

I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.

There could be an option to "automatically connect" when it detects the network. Look for a checkbox.
create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options in the connections tab tick in the box never dial a connection
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you
have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them
Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding.
Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.
From the pop-up menu select "Enable."
This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.
Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.
After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.
Right-click the wireless icon again.
From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area.
A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from.
Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.
you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .
click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'
(or similar) and click 'enable'.
right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center
you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection
this will vary depending on your operating system
hope this helps
