Your wireless card's antenna is probably turned off. On the front of your laptop there is a physical switch... verify that it's turned on.

That switch is not turning off/on the actual wireless card... just the radio. So when you turn it off, it will still appear in your device manager and the wireless icon will still appear in your system tray. However, the radio is the major source of battery drain... so that's why they give you that switch.

Glad it worked for you.
