I take it you have something else thats wireless?

Like a wireless network? And the other computers have wireless cards?

What version of windows is installed?

Look for a switch or button which turns the wireless card on. ;) You should have the power light on anyway, regardless of any other wireless hosts nearby. Wireless cards use enough power that laptops should have the ability to turn them off when not needed to save battery capacity.
