Built in wireless adapter stopped working.

 Lee-_13 -
Hello, I have restored my computer fully to the point where its brand new, ive also reinstalled window vista for my computer (Dell). Now when I try to log on the computer from my laptop it wont allow me. Ive never had this problem when I first got the computer. Now the Wi-fi button & light wont ctivate when I press it, causing me not to be able to get on the internet on my laptop. Also the wi-fi adapter is built in the laptop ,however its still not working. What do I do?

try to turn on the WiFi using the software switch. probably it is disabled that's why the light is not lit even if you switched the physical switch to on, or you can try to uninstall/reinstall the WiFi driver.
Thank you
