Press the FN+F2 to turn on then the wifi light will turn green.
Else you'll have a sliding switch in the sides of the laptop to turn on wireless.

Good luck.

Fn+f2


fn+f2 means your pressing two keys at once
the function key (fn - usually a different color - maybe blue - than the letter keys) and the f2 key

hold down the fn first then the f2 - look for the fn on the lower right or left next to Ctrl keys
