Alright, I have a wireless lan card I would like to use instead of my cable.
Going under hardware drivers shows my netcard and the driver that is needed to use it (Atheros 802.11 wireless lan card).

But I'm kind of stuck since my hardware is apparently turn off. I do have a button to turn on and off my wireless netcard but upon pressing it, nothing happens.
I have also looked into my BIOS to see if any options were available there. But I fail to see any options for my netcard.

So any idea how I can turn on my netcard?

I also have the same problem with a laptop with an Atheros chipset.
