Many laptops have a switch to enable/disable the wi-fi in order to save power. This may be a separate switch, or a combination of a key with the Fn key. Look for an icon of an aerial, that will probably be the right one.

The manual will let you know how to enable/disable the wi-fi.

You should also check Device Manager to check if there is any problem with the card's drivers.
