Did you get a manual with it? If not have a look in Device Manager, presuming it's got a MS OS on it. Haven't had any experience with wireless but at a guess there should be something in there.

Yes i do have a manual but am not sure about what to look for.
I have windows XP on my laptop.
I am not very good at this but, what would i be looking for in the device manager?

Go to Network Adapters and look for Wireless connection.

Look out for anything to do with wireless or 802.11a/b/g under network adapters in device control

You might also have a physical switch on your laptop to turn on or turn off the wireless - most (but not all) laptops with wireless have this switch so that you can make your battery last a bit longer by turning off the wireless when you aren't using it.

If you do a search in your favourite search engine, using the make and model number, you should find a page with all the specs.
