Dear friend
this is what you are looking for you can connect and disconnect from this icon near the time and date at bottom of the screen.
how do I turn on wirelrss capabilities for  my - gaganddun_1.jpg

if you dont have this icon then you have to go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > and look for connection that mention wireless or something like that. If the connection in semitransparent it means it is disabled. double click it and it will be enabled.
otherwise you have to install the drivers of the wireless adapter.
thanks
Gagan

Where is the switch or function key combination to turn on wireless connection?


It's difficult to tell, but there seems to be a small switch on the front, that may activate the wireless connection. If that isn't it, you can usually access the modems through control panel, under 'network and internet,' and the wireless assistant, or possibly the network and sharing center; if the wireless modem is disabled, right clicking on the icon will usually give you an option to activate it, or you can connect to a network through the network and sharing center, as well as detecting networks, and that will tell you whether or not the thing is working.
