Ok figured it out, both my laptops with Vista have buttons to turn on wireless internet. My hp has a round button next to the power button and my Toshiiba has a button that you slide on the front of it. I tunred the Wireless internet button on and it worked. Both buttons look similar to this ((!)) it is a tower with 2 parenthesis on it side around it
