    Some laptops need drives to activate the appropriate "FN" designated commands. Did you reinstall the PC recently?
    Are you near a network you can connect to? Go to library, most of them have free Wi-Fi.
    Also you can try to activate the card manualy. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > and right click of your Card and "enable"
    There is a low chance of this happening, but led might have burned out. Let us now how it went...
