Answers :

Search wireless networks. If you find any, your wireless connection is working in your laptop, if not, try rebooting modem, and router and search again. If you find your network, problem solved. If it can't find none, look into your laptops device manager to verify that your wireless card is functioning properly.(No exclamations next to the adapter)
