Expand the network adapter section

You can also check that the wireless card is Enable/Disable from inside the Network Connection Area

Start-Setting-double click Network Connection-Right click-Wireless Area Connection-Enable or Disable as required

Some times you have to Disable and Enable before the card will connect to the wireless system
