No wireless networks broadcast

Issue

I am only given the choice for Dial Up or VPN connections for my internet option. It won't show me wireless networks.

Environment

Windows 7 Dell Laptop

Cause

Wireless adapter turned off

Resolution

From the laptop keyboard, toggle the wireless adapter on by pressing the blue Fn key with the top row PrtScr key at the same time.

This should cause the wireless networks in the area to be visible in the network connections of the system tray in the lower right corner.
