Default Can't connect to internet on laptop

Don't know what I did. My laptop was working....I had to restart. Now it doesn't connect to internet. It's telling me to push a button to enable wireless capabilitity. What button? Where? Its not finding any networks to connect to at all....mine or any others.

My desktop wired connection is working just fine. Tried rebooting. didn't work. How do you turn wireless capability "back on". Very confused.

Any immediate help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Using Verizon DSL service with ActionTec modem/router combo.

Close thread. Just figured it out. There was an "easy launch" button which I never knew about. Thanks anyway.
