Start -> Connect To->Show all connections
You should see an entry corresponding to your internet connection
(I think you said wireless net in your other thread)
Click that entry
Right Click -> Properties -> Advanced -> Settings
Make sure that the "On" button is checked.

Chance are, if you've tried the suggestion above and it hasn't worked, it may be due to the the Virus on your computer.
Help Virus Attack

Viruses can affect many aspects of the OS, and sometimes you have no control over settings, until the Virus is removed.
