You probably disabled it by pressing these two keys.

Wifi is enabled/disabled only by pressing both the Fn + F2 keys. (Don't press the + key, just Fn and F2).

Good luck!!

Enable / Disable an Enterprise Laptop's Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, short for Wireless Fidelity, is networking technology that allows you to connect to the Internet. If you have a wireless-enabled Latitude computer you can connect to the Internet when in range of an access point called a hotspot.
When not in use your Latitude's wireless card should be disabled. By disabling Wi-Fi, you will receive two benefits:
Start-up times will be much faster.
If the wireless card is ON and you are out of the office (not connected to your normal, wired connection), the laptop will try to use the Wi-Fi network during the login process to run the various start-up scripts, etc. It will eventually time-out (fail). By having the wireless card turned OFF, the start-up process will be much faster.
Computer will not continually search for a wireless network (and waste battery life).
If you are in the office (connected to your normal, wired connection) or in a location where there is no wireless hotspot, you don't need to have the computer waste processing power by looking and looking for a wireless hotspot. By disabling Wi-Fi, you will gain a little more power for your other tasks. In addition, you will maximize your battery operating time by disabling wireless activity.
NOTE: After your Latitude has started up completely, you can ENABLE the wireless card and connect to a wireless hotspot. For example, a wireless router at your home or at a local coffee shop. If you have connected to this hotspot previously, the wireless card should connect automatically for you.
NOTE: Once you have the wireless card enabled, before you shut down the computer, you should again DISABLE the card. The computer will then be ready for the next time you turn it on with wireless turned off.
Enable / Disable with Hardware Switch
The more recent Latitude models have a wireless switch to enable or disable wireless network devices and the
Wi-Fi Catcher Network Locator.
Dell Latitude E6420 and E6520 Series
These laptops have a small switch on the RIGHT side of the keyboard. The switch is toward the front of the laptop. The Wi-Fi Catcher™ icon will is above the keyboard. You will see a lit radio tower if the wireless switch is enable

Please check whether your computer's wireless connection enabled or disabled. If you are using windows 7 this information you can find in network sharing center. By accident if WLAN is disabled it can be enabled. Also power cycling the router may do the trick.
More drastic approach is resetting the router which I recommend to reserve as last resort. With information you provided the router seems to be fine and your computer wireless need to be enabled!
good luck!

I some how turned my wifi off and I do not know how to turn it back on my labtop


Look on the side for a switch. Sometimes it gets accidently turned off there. You can enable the wifi (and disabled it) by going to NETWORK CONNECTIONS and right clicking where it says WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION. If you are not using the LAN (connected by cable to the router) you can also disabled it by right clicking on LAN and selecting DISABLE.

Cannot connect to wireless internet


First, do you have a wireless router button that enables or disables wireless internet? If so than it might have got accidently turned off. push it and see what pops up on screen. If it says enabled than it was turned of try connecting to internet again. If it says disabled than push again until it says enabled clearly that wasn't the problem. Next try going down to the two computers (right hand bottom corner) then double click them. This will bring up a wireless networks available, try refreshing this page. After refreshed if no networks are available than it may have to do with your internet provider. Try calling them to get a better detailed explanation.

Windows WiFi Fix,
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.
