Hi There and Welcome to Fixya!

Another way to turn on the wireless radio on your Lenovo Y510 is to press and hold the "Fn" key, then simultaneously press the "F5" key.

This is an alternative way to switch the wireless antenna on or off without using the physical WIFI switch.

Hope this helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

You may also want to check in Windows' Netwotk and Sharing Center / Change adapter settings. This view will show if your wireless adapter is enabled or disabled. If necessary, right-click on the wireless adapter icon and select Enable.

I have lenovo laser wireless mouse. Suddenly right click is not working in it, i have changed the batteries even though no use. Can u say a quick and better solution


It sounds like the Micro Switch for the Right Button has gone bad, if the Left Button is working, then you have a bad switch and it is cheaper to replace the mouse.

Right click "Wireless Network Connection" icon. Select "Enable." Enable Wireless via Switch Check your IBM Lenovo laptop for a wireless networking switch. It is usually on the front of the computer above the keyboard. Slide the wireless switch to the "On" position. Look for a wireless light on the front of the laptop.

Can't find a switch to enable wireless on new Lenovo T410


I had this same problem. The slider switch on the right side if the laptop enables both the wifi connection and the Bluetooth control. My laptop was only turning on the Bluetooth. If this is happening to you, true booting the computer and going in the BIOS settings, Network, wireless adapter. There you will have the option to turn it on or off. Mine was set to off. I clicked on and rebooted to Windows and it works now. Hope this helps.

Cannot turn on wireless radio on Lenovo Idealpad


Press FN+F5 button together on the keyboard to have the settings for display pops up on the screen. Check if the radio button was turned on both for wireless and bluetooth connection. If the radio button was off, just click ON and that should set the wifi to turned on. Always make sure that the wifi switch was set to on as well.

If this didn't fix the problem, kindly reinstall the wifi adapter driver by downloading the driver from the manufacturer's website. after reinstallation kindly reboot the computer.

Please leave comments if you have any other questions.

Cheers~
