wireless connection issues

Dell Inspiron 1012 (Dell Mini) says "no connections are available" despite the fact that my other devices are connected. This problem has just occured. Restoring to an earlier point does not help. I would GREATLY appreciate quick attention to this thread. Thanks!

Look at your keyboard to find the key combo for turning the wireless card on/off. Maybe you switched it off by accident? If there's an LED on the body of the laptop displaying the card status, pay close attention to it when you hit the key combo.

Here's some info from Dell's Support section for wireless networking:

Make sure the wireless switch is on. It will be either a sliding switch on the left or right side edge of the computer, a key combination or single key, look for the wireless icon .

For example on the Inspiron 1545 and Studio 1555, press the <F2> key to alternatively turn off or turn on the wireless function on the computer
