try looking at the front of the pc and you will see 2 glass buttons push the 2nd one in and that should turn on the wireless

Does it say 'switch on' or 'enable'? If it's enable you access 'All Connections' from START>'Connect to' and then highlight the Intel WiFi and select 'enable' from the left frame. Your card is now enabled.

My Acer Aspire 5003 also has a button on the front. If the WiFi is enabled as above the button flashes. When the WiFi connects to the Router it goes to a steady orange colour.

Don't be put off by the first reply that you received (the one that was deleted). That's not at all representative of this forum and we will all try to help if it turns out to be more complex than we first thought. But feedback is what enables us to help, so please respond regardless of whether the issue has been resolved or not.
