Question about Computers & Internet
 make sure the switch for you wireless network is turned on, and I think it is either located between the screen joints and the keyboard, or right on the side of the computer [the side that always faces you when the computer is on the laps]. Next, check to see if it has detected any wireless Networks, you could do this by right clicking the icon for the wireless network, in your bottom right corner and clicking on 'view available wireless networks'. if they do not show, you will have to refresh. When the links are listed, select the one you wish yo connect to and click 'connect'. if it needs authentication, you'll have to provide a network key

I don't know that laptop, but many with a wireless card have a switch to turn it on and off usually on front left

I think youre in luck. The driver for your Broadcom wireless card is not contained in Windows 7. You can download the updated driver by going here.
You should be able to simply download the .zip, extract it to your desktop and let it install itself but if you need additional help installing the driver manually, please let me know.
Hope this helps!

You need to go to your control panel then your internet options. From there go to your internet connections and foolow the prompts for wireless connections. That will set up a wireless connection for you, you may have to redo this connection depending on your location when using your computer. Take note unless you know their passwords you can only get on non secure networks. That means be careful what you do for anyone can intercept the work.
