    What type of a laptop is it (i.e. Dell, Gateway)
    I had the same problem with my laptop at first then I took the time to stare at the keyboard a little. Low and behold I found out that if you use the FUNCTION key and the F2 key (my has what looks like a capitol "A" with little signal marks on it -- or a wireless tower if you will) the laptop connected to my wireless router instantly and the dialog box came up showing what type of network I was connected to and the strength. I hope this helps you. If you have anymore questions feel free to throw them out there.

    I'm guessing either the wireless is turned off as mentioned above or drivers aren't installed or correct.... check hardware profiles to see if the wireless card is installed & active...
