Most laptops have a wireless button on them somewhere and an indicator light showing if teh wireless is on or off. This usually looks like an antenna. Just double check that the wireless is turned on before you start seeking help on parts.

you may have disabled the wireless function on the laptop. Try pressing the button with the picture of the radio tower and then try connecting again. If that doesn't work then comet should repair it for free.

Is this internal wireless or a PCMCIA card? Do you get the wireless notification in the taskbar saying that you're not connected to anywhere? When you right click it and connect to network, does it display any networks in the local area?

Also, what's the laptop manufacturer and model?
