Windows 7: Wifi not detecting network connections

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Wifi not detecting network connections

Hi Guys,
I am having problems with wifi not recognizing my network connection. I have done a troubleshoot & it tells me that my wireless adapter is not turned on. I have tried all of the solutions I can find on the internet, but cannot solve the problem.
A quick run down of what I have done.
1. Right clicked my wireless icon in network connections & enable it.
2. Stopped & started the service in the command prompt.
3. Made sure I had the latest driver.
4. Started the Wlan auto config in services.msc.
5. Checked that the Wlan was enabled in the BIOS.
All to no avail.
Any suggestions?
