I would check the laptop case for an wireless on/off switch and make sure its turned on.

Is there any third party application to manage wireless on the laptop?

If there is no 3rd party applications follow the directions below.


1. Open the Start Menu
2. Type services in the Start Search area and press Enter
3. Click on Continue in the UAC prompt
4. Locate Network Connections, Network List Service, Network Location Awareness, and Network Store Interface Service
5. Verify that Status is set to Started and Startup Type is set to Automatic
6. If this is not the case then right click the service and select Start to start the service
7. Right click the service and select Properties and change the Startup type to Automatic
8. Repeat as necessary for the services listed in step 4
