I have a laptop, Lenovo G560, and I'm unable to connect to any wireless networks. It says that I need to turn on the wireless by pressing some button on the keyboard, but I don't have any buttons for turning on and off wireless. OS is Win 7. Any suggestions?

Download your user guide from the lenovo support – Moab Sep 4 '12 at 21:12
I'm not super familiar with IdeaPads, but it's either a Fn key combination or a physical switch on the side of the system. – Shinrai Sep 4 '12 at 21:16
Is the wireless switch turned off? Its located on the side or front of your laptop. – Simon Sheehan Sep 4 '12 at 21:31
There is no switch for wireless. – MladenB Sep 4 '12 at 21:34
According to the user's guide, the wireless switch should be at the front, to the left. – Indrek Sep 4 '12 at 21:42

Hold the Fn key and press F5. This should enable/disable your wireless adapter.

Didn't help. Nothing changes, I troubleshooted it again, it says "wireless capability is turned off". – MladenB Sep 4 '12 at 21:27
@MladenB Check the driver status. What does it say? – user142485 Sep 4 '12 at 21:27
I have only one driver missing, "unknown device". Network adapters seem to work fine. – MladenB Sep 4 '12 at 21:30
