If this is a laptop, sometimes there's a physical switch which is hard to see but easy to turn off. Other systems have a Function key to use in conjunction with the Fn key to the left of your spacebar. Does any of the Function keys have the little wireless icon on it?

What's the exact make/model of the machine? If a laptop, have you opened the access door on the bottom and made sure the wireless adapter is firmly seated?

Yes i opened it up and took it out and wiped all the contacts and blew out the socket and replaced making sure it was seated well.I have an Acer Aspire 9300 with a Broadcom BCM94311MCG WiFi card.But when i look in the Network Adaptors there is only NVIDA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet#2.I do have broadcom 802,11g Network Adaptor installed but it is not in Device manager :confused:

Check in the BIOS (Setup) to see if it possibly got disabled. If it is already enabled in the BIOS, or is missing, then probably the adapter is dead.
