Download inSSIDer from this site:
http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/

Load it onto the laptop, install, then run it to find out if the laptop can see any wireless networks. Mine sees 10 wireless routers from my family room. If you can see any networks, the laptop wireless equipment is working and the problem is elsewhere.

inSSIDer also is good for choosing a wireless channel that your neighbors aren't using and finding the wireless dead zones in your house..
