First off - does this laptop have a physical switch for the wifi enabling? I've seen that be the culprit quit ea few times.

NExt - if it's a driver's problem go to your laptop's manufacturer site, plug in the make and model, download the appropriate drivers, and install them.

It has a button on the side of my laptop that let me turn the wifi on and off!

So you got it working? Stellar. That button was a nice feature but folks always forget it about it.

No it normally shows a light next to the Capital blocks so I know the wifi can be connected but ever since the reboot it has not come back on!

What is your computer manufacture and model number?

Go to said manufacturer's site, under 'support' (or something that is like support) plug in the model number, it should take you to a page with wifi drivers, go find the ones for networking, download them, and install them.
