The wireless network connection adapter is disabled. Pls help :)

Hi everyone!

I have a HP laptop. For some reason, i'm unable to get internet connection. When i try trouble shooting it, it says that the wireless network connection adapter is disabled. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could pls show me how to enable the adapter. Also, i've read online that the f12 button that looks like the signal tower should not have the yellow/orange light. I've tried turning it off but its not working. Pls help. Thanks in advance!

Device manager> network connections> right click on the wireless network adapter and choose enable.

If you have a switch to turn on wireless, you have to make sure it`s turned on.
