I think the a900 has a WiFi button on the case.  Are you sure that's turned on?

I know that not all systems are the same, but my experience is that when the light is amber, the wireless circuitry is disabled, which would explain why you can't get it to work from the OS. There should be a button or switch of some kind that will toggle that between amber and blue.

Is it the a900 cto? Can you find the exact model you should see cto or es or ed.

Do you run 32bit or 64bit vista?
