How do I turn on wireless card

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. All the sudden, I lost my wireless connection. After running the trouble shooter, I was told that my Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card was turned off and needed to be turned back on. There is no switch to turn it on & off.
This happened about a year ago and after being on the phone with tech support for over an hour, I finally talked to someone who knew what the problem was & stepped me through how to fix it.
My warranty has now expired, so I can't call tech support again. I lost the directions for how to fix it. I thought he had me to uninstall it, reboot & re-install it, but that wasn't it.
Can someone please help me?
Thanks,

Yes, I tried that too. I remember it has something to do with going into the properties of either the card or the device manager. The darn MS Fog strikes again... lol Thanks for trying.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, I've been away. Yes, the card is showing in device manager. I've uninstalled it & re-installed. It still says that it is turned off.
