First i would try moving the switch that is located on the front of the netbook to the right. Once the switch has been moved the wireless networking icon will appear on the screen indicating that it has been enabled.If this doesn't help my next step would be to remove and recreate the wireless network connection by doing the following:

  1. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
  2. Open Network Connections
  3. Right-click the wireless network connection, and click Properties
  4. Click the Wireless Networks tab
  5. Under Preferred networks, click the wireless network, and then click Remove
  6. Click View Wireless Networks
  7. Under Network Tasks, click Refresh Network List
  8. Under Choose a wireless network, click the wireless network to which you want to connect, and then click Connect
In Windows, there is a power mode setting for the wireless driver that may also help this issue. Follow the instructions below:
  1. Go to Control Panel, System, click the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.
  2. Click the + next to Network Adapters and double click on the Atheros wireless Network Adapter.
  3. Click on the Advanced tab, select Power Save Mode from the list on the left.
  4. Change the Value on the right to Off.
    The default setting is Maximum, which may cause issues similar to those described.
Check to see if this has resolved the connectivity issue. If it has not, the following steps may need to be completed.
  1. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
  2. Open Network Connections
  3. Right-click your wireless network connection, and click Properties
  4. Click the Wireless Networks tab
  5. Under Preferred networks, click the wireless network, and click Properties
  6. Click the Authentication tab, click to clear the "Enable IEEE 802.1X authentication for this network" check box, and then click OK twice if this doesnt help the computer may need service.
