Hi Rindar,
Well this is a picture of what a Wireless Button should resemble:

If it's red it is off, if it's blue it's on..
But I can see from the picture below that the Toughbook cf-51 doesn't appear to have one in the 'normal' place:

So, maybe you can go to Control Panel and click the Intel Pro Wireless icon and run a diagnostic to tell you some more information. Since you mentioned that you have checked the device manager, I guess you'll have done this too.
So, all I can recommend is to double click on the networks connection on the bottom right hand corner of your screen and open Network and Sharing Manager, and make sure Network Discovery is enabled, then Manage Wireless Networks, and right click on your connection and click Properties, and check the 'Automatically Connect When in Range' box.
If it doesn't connect now, click on the network and press Connect now.

Hope this helps!
