  • There are two aspect of turning on WiFi, the hardware and software. Unfortunately you have given no relevant information.

    Consult your setup guide to discover which functional key (or combination) enable WiFi.

    From the point of view os software, you may have installed wrong (optional) driver. Go to the vendor's support page and install recommended driver for WiFi.
