I have a Sony Vaio VPCCW17FX laptop, on the bottom right is a switch for the wifi, on/off. both have a light, neither are working and the switch doesnt work. The wifi is permanently off. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to turn it back on through the system.
Is there any way to do this?

If the hardware switch is permanently off the only solution is to fix the switch. This will obviously require a bit of surgery on the laptop. You may not be so adventurous (and there is some risk in this), which leaves two choices:
1. find a repair shop to fix the switch
2. use a USB wifi dongle.
