If your laptop has a di-fi switch/button chances are you have one integrated on the main board of the laptop, check if the wi-fi adapter is installed properly by going to the Device Manager and check Network Adapters normally a wi-fi adapter will show up if not check if you have any devices listed under network devices(Network Controller, Ethernet Controller). Now if the wi-fi card is installed and the status on the Device Manager say's that it's working properly, you may now check your laptop for a 3rd pary wi-fi utility/application that manages your connection look for it on the System Tray on the lower right hand side near the clock or go to all programs and look for any WLAN utility, when you open the utility make sure the wi-fi radio is turned on or enabled.

This one can be one of two things.
If you have a digital multimeter, check the power connection and make sure that it's not to high (eg. 7.5 V DC should read no more than 7.8 V for it to work properly)
Otherwise, just reset the router. I have a feeling it is the first one.
Once it reaches to 130% above of what's rated, it can fry your network adapter in your computer and possibly more damage if it's wired.

Your card is ok. There is interference between the router and your computer.
1. The router or the PC may be "hidden" behind a metal cabinet, refrigerator, etc.
2. Move router higher
3. Microwave ovens and some cordless phones (not cellphones) that use 2.4GHz will interfere with the 2.4GHz WiFi signal.
4. Point the router antennas in-line with the direction of the PC.
5. Move the router closer to the PC.
