I have a Lenovo W520 laptop running windows 7.

Till yesterday wifi was working fine on the laptop but today it can't detect any wifi connection.

When I press fn+F5 it shows me a message that I have attached as an image to this post.

I have restarted my laptop a few times and I have not installed any new software on this system recently.

Any help in resolving this will be highly appreciated.

Thank you

I'm assuming you have the physical switch that is located on the left side of the laptop set to ON ?  If so, and still getting that message, you could have an issue with the driver, a re-install of the newer driver would be a start.
