Click on the area as shown above in the red rectangle. . If the box is blue, wireless is on. If it is gray, the wireless is off. You can click it once to turn it on or off.

You can also use the “Airplane mode” button right next to it. It does the same thing, and will also disable Bluetooth on devices that have it. Airplane mode DOES NOT disable your wired/ethernet connection. Both these options are only for wireless. Below is a screenshot of what you will see when Airplane mode is enabled.
