Windows 7: Wifi is disabled?

Wifi is disabled?

I have a Lenovo laptop and I all the sudden can't connect to the internet. I downloaded Speccy to check what is my NIC so maybe I can update the driver but the only thing I see is "You are not connected to the internet". and then "Wi-Fi not enabled".
Also the Windows says that the wireless utility is not on or somthing like that.

What am I suppose to do?

On laptops there is a key combo (for dell Fn-+ F2) to turn on (enable) wifi. Look in your user manual or google what they are for your model

so the key combo is Fn +F5 and when you do that the wifi light doesnt come on?

Then it is either the wifi card, or a driver.

Go to lenovo download the wifi driver and install it.

Does the wifi light go blue during Window's boot up and turn red after you login? Or does it just stay red all the time?

Moreover, I know that you mentioned pressing the Fn key, but have you tried physically pressing the wifi symbol on your computer? On my computer it is not just a light symbol, it is a touch sensitive button as well (which enables / disables wifi for me.)
