Lenovo G500 After BIOS update WiFi Problem

I was installed Win7 more than 6 months ago. Today i installed Win8 back so i download drivers from lenovo site. I installed all driver without any problems. After BIOS update when i put my lenovo into sleep mode after wake up there is no LAN or WIFI network.

 

Tryed:

-Format other copy of Win8

 

-Install latest drivers.

-Changing Power setting on device properties.

I also have this problem- when waking the computer from sleep, the Wi-Fi is disabled and can NOT be enabled without restarting the computer. It says that the device is switched off via hardware button. The wired connection works, but it's frustrating having to restart every time I want to use Wi-Fi.

Try to go to Bios, then to comfiguration, theres an option there that regards the wiifi state.
Check thats its Enabled

It is enabled, I've checked several times. As I said, the wi-fi works at start, but shows as disabled by hardware button after the computer sleeps and wakes up... And the G500 doesn't have a hardware button for wi-fi. It has a button for airplane mode, which doesn't help either.

I'm g500s models have exactly the same problem after BIOS update.
Each time after switching on the laptop I have to reboot to activate the laptop's WiFi unit.
Please announce the solution there. Thanks

Windows 10 is installed with the latest Windows updates and drivers.
The latest version of the BIOS installed on Lenovo (version 7bcn38ww.exe) WiFi is still a problem.
Windows must be restarted to WiFi know his time.
Please help me fix up
