Press F12 key on the Notebook to turn ON/OFF the wireless. If the light turns amber in color its OFF , and if light is white it means wireless is ON

What happens if i cannot get the light to turn from amber to white? No matter how many times i push f12 it will not turn to white. Device manager states there might be a bad file or some such thing so i cannot get the wireless to turn on.

Try using Recovery Manager to reinstall the wireless driver:
