Laptops, like desktops, need working hardware to function properly. When dealing with issues such as network connectivity, the drivers, how the hardware works together, becomes even more important. A wireless card needs to be installed and enabled for wireless Internet connection.
Make sure wireless card is installed properly. The card should be installed on the bottom of the notebook, connected by two wires; one black, the other white.
