Check your device manager. If there is a wireless adapter on device manager and it is enabled and you still cannot pick up wireless hotspot, make sure that there is actually a network there and the SSID is show to all.

I am having the same problem. Can't turn on wireless. Driver is there saying it's enabled and working but it's not turning on or picking up any connection. I can access with an Ethernet cable though.
