Wireless won't turn on

My wifi was working just fine this morning, then my 1 yr old pushed some keys when I turned away for a minute, now my wireless won't turn on. I have tried the F2 + Function key several times, I've rebooted and tried to search possible solutions. Any ideas? My other laptop is connected to my router just fine, so I am sure it is just a computer issue. I have an Inspirion 1750. Also, is there any indicator of wireless on this computer? I have to go into network to see if it is on, it seems there should be an easier way (my other computers have a wifi light). Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Nevermind, I rebooted one more time and that did the trick. Odd.

@Riamac

just go to the settings in BIOS when you starts your laptop, and check to see if wireless adapter is enabled.

if it is ok, then uninstall and reinstall the wireless drivers.

Hope it will resolve your problem.
