WiFi Button Greyed Out, Unable to Turn WiFi On

This question is not answered

L501X, working fine until this morning when I was unable to connect to the internet via my wireless connection.  Two other laptops can connect as normal.  If I hardwire the laptop the connection comes back.  When I looked further into this I saw that the wifi was turned off.  The problem is that the button in the Windows Mobility Center to turn the wifi on is greyed out and so I'm unable to turn it back on.  I'm perplexed.  Any ideas?  Thank you.
