Right click on your wireless icon in the tray.
Left click on "repair". If there's nothing wrong with it, it won't hurt it. If it's gone stupid, it may fix it.
Left click on "status". This will tell you if your wireless actually has a connection. Without knowing the rest of your setup that's about as far as I can go for now. Good luck.

don't follow you on "without plugging a usb" so I'm going to give you someadvice, if I'm wring or have the wrong machine, please correct me, before you rate me.
I believe this machine has a built in wireless card. If so, then you need to follow the link below and download the wireless drivers for it. If the wireless drivers are already there, then you need to uninstall them and reboot the machine. The machine will find the wireless card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Many time this type of problem is a driver glitch, and this procedure will fix it. If it doesn't have an internal wireless card installed in it, it does have the slot and you can purchase one to go in it. Here's the link for the Inspiron B130 wireless drivers. You'll find the wireless drivers in the network section, and you may have to try more than one if you don't know the make and model of the wireless card.

Tips for a great answer:
Push this button to activate or deactivate the Wireless LAN. When you activate the wireless LAN function, it will search for a wireless LAN signal automatically (assuming you have the wireless LAN driver installed). Just below the screen on the right side is the Status LED Panel, which show six icons, each with its own LED. The first one on the left indicates Wireless LAN status. When the LED is displaying a green light, it indicates that the system is accessing data from, or retrieving data by wireless LAN. So whenever you press the Easy button, you should see the green status light come on or go off. To repeat, if the light is not on, you need to press the Wireless LAN 'Easy Button'. NOTE! If you can't get the button to come on, you will need to re-install the Wireless LAN driver.
