Well there is 2 things you can do. One is the QuickPad at the top of the laptop, there is a blue antenna figure at the top right and if it is on blue, then it is on, if orange, then off. Run your finger across it and it should turn on. Another way is on the taskbar at the bottom, you will see a computer monitor with a globe in front of it. Click on that and connections and the ability to turn on your wi-fi will be all there.

Look for a blue antenna on one of the keys on the upper row of the keyboard. When you find it locate the fn key hold the fn key down while you press the key with the antenna. This should enable your wireless card.

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:

Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Turn on wireless with function key hp laptop


Assuming this is the DV7 series laptop you picked when you posted there is a small wireless key above the keyboard(not embedded in the F keys) that shout be orange with the wireless picture displaying if it has been turned of.

press the key and wait about ten seconds and it should be fine.

If the key doen't turn blue then you may have a "real" problem, if it does you should be fine.
