 Make sure the the Wifi is Turned On on your laptop

Most laptops have a Wifi Button or use a Function Key to turn the Wifi on or off
-- If your laptop has a Wifi Button it should be located on the Keyboard or somewhere on the side of your laptop, pressing the button once will turn the Wifi on or off

-- If your laptop uses a Function Key (F3, F12, Etc.), it will be located on the Keyboard, you will need to press the Fn Key and then press the Function Key (F3, F12, Etc.) to turn the Wifi on or off

Some laptops have an On/Off switch for the Wifi
-- If your laptop has an On/Off switch, simply flip the switch

-- For some laptops pressing the Wifi Button will turn Airplane Mode on or off, when Airplane Mode is Off, the Wifi is On

2. Check if you have a Wifi Icon

Look for a Wifi Icon in the bottom right hand corner of your computer screen
-- If there is no Internet Connection Icon at all, you will need to make the icon visible

3. Make the Internet Icon visible

Click on the Show hidden icons arrow in the bottom right hand corner
Go to Customize
Scroll Down
Look for your Internet Connection
Change the Behavior from Hide icon and notifications/Only show notifications to Show icon and notifications
Click Ok

If still issue exits then check Lenovo G580 Manual for help.
