Wireless Radio issue

[ Edited ]
Own an N100   wife had machine away in a hotel recently and according to her she answered ano to some question that appeared as she connected to internet.
 
Anyway machine arives home and all of a sudden does not connect.
 
Followed all options presented on box but  Lenovo Diagnostic tool indicates   wireless radiop is off   please reconnect.  error code 163851
When I use Lenovo Care key on my machine  andtry to power on radio it indicates  internal device is set to 'Radio Off' in BIOS Setup or powered off by hardware switch.
 
Tried going into BIOS settings  on startup but no Wireless Radio stuff visible.
 
I tried Fn F5   saw Wireless Radio control  wont let me change status   currently disabled
 
Also went to Device Manager  and it tells me  that SM Driver - SM BIOS Service  Driver is corrupt or missing code 39
Any help   would be appreciated

Re: Wireless Radio issue

bostonrugby, welcome to the forum,
 
I don't have an N100 at hand, but is there a hardware switch for wireless on it? Probably located on/under the front of the notebook. It may be that the switch got turned to off, this results in similar messages to those you are getting.

I dont believe there is a switch anywhere,  I did look for something obvious, perhaps closer scrutiny in necessary -  I will check this evening when I get home.

Re: Wireless Radio issue

According to the Setup Guide the switch is just left of centre on the front edge of the notebook.
