Wireless Connection

Hi...2011 Lenovo....for some reason when I try to get online it says I need to turn on wireless capability. I have no idea how to do this and its never been an issue until now. I've reviewed the message bed and it doesn't seem to be a power management issue. Can anyone help? Thanks!

please turn your system over, there should be a small label with type, model and S/N number on it.


We need the type/model number please do not write the S/N down here.
