There is normal a button on the front edge or on the side that turns the WiFi on and off. There is also a blue function key that turns it on and off. If both of these do not work and you are sure the WiFi on the laptop is off and not that there is not Wi-Fi working it the laptop's range then the wireless card inside the laptop is malfuntioning.
If it is an HP DV series, they have a motherboard issue that one of the issues you see if the WiFi goes out. Then you can start seeing issues with the graphics card and your screen. They were fixing this under an extended warranty but they stopped that as of Dec 31, 2008

How to enable wireless multimedia


Got this from Apple website:

his applies only to third-party routers. Apple AirPort products do not have a setting to enable or disable WMM.

WMM must be enabled for devices to connect. Disabling WMM on your wireless router can prevent the following Apple products from connecting to an 802.11n Wi-Fi network:

  • iPad
  • iPhone
  • iPod touch
  • Apple TV

If you are unable to connect to an 802.11n Wi-Fi network on any of these devices, check to ensure that WMM is enabled and configured correctly on your wireless router. If you require additional assistance, please contact your router manufacturer.

Your problem may appear from a not properly enabled WLAN card.
Make sure the Wi-Fi swithc is in ON position and on your laptop keyboard try the FN+F8 combination to have displayed the wireless card status. The WLAN card has to be ENABLED to be able to connect to the Internet. The combination done will make appear on your display a window with some options available; choose that option that enables your wireless card.
Also check in your computer's DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is working properly. To do so follow these simple steps:
1. START and click on SYSTEM;
2. in SYSTEM option click on DEVICE MANAGER;
3. on DEVICE MANAGER option go at NETWORK ADAPTERS and see if there your wireless card is indicated and it shows that it is working PROPERLY;
4. if an UNKNOWN DEVICE is indicated then try to find the right driver for you notebook model and WLAN card model;
5. install the driver then REBOOT and recheck in DEVICE MANAGER if your WLAN card is displayed properly this time.

Unable to use wireless feature on second computer on the network


The second computer's wireless card may not have the latest wireless card driver installed or it is not enabled and working. Check Device manager to see if is is working and enabled. I suggest you install the latest wireless card driver.
Next check the wireless card configuration, it needs to have the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc.
For instructions on securing and configuring the wireless router and wireless card please click in this link :-

5) At the top of the window, select add a wireless device. Follow the onscreen instructions to add your Linksys Wireless Access Point.
6) Once added, right click on Wireless-G Router (name varies) and select configure. Follow the onscreen instructions to configure your router. (You can find your router pin by following steps 1-2 and selecting Wi-Fi Protected Set up.)
