some laptops have a physical switch somewhere on the side or in the front to enable the wireless network card and when enabled it should be indicated by a little light.
also there should be Fn+Function Key which allows to turn on and off the radio.
what make and model is the laptop that has the problem?

yes I have the wireless light on the lappy .
its a HP NC 8430
