How does one fix it? I am a little strapped for cash as today was record store day and I spent a little much on some lps.
First, acquire some electronic skills....:)
It could be a physical issue...the switch not being able to move far enough to the right to turn it on.
A wiring issue...some bit of wire is broken.
Probably the easiest and cheapest way for you is to get a USB wifi dongle. ~$10-15 at Amazon.
