wifi detected but unable to connect

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 and Windows 7 Starter. I updated the BIOS but now I cannot connect to wifi anymore. The different wifis are detected, they are not password protected or anything. But I cannot connect them.

The little wifi-light on the front ridge is on. I have pressed the FN-F5 and made sure everything is on.

What can I do?

Re: wifi detected but unable to connect

Hello and thank you for this answer!

I did that but it didn't help.

What else can I try?

By the way, I know what DOS is.  A teacher told me back in the last century.

Re: wifi detected but unable to connect

I have updated the driver for the network thingy and turned everything off (all the routers) and on and now it works again!
