That means there's no Ethernet cable connected, which means it's not detecting your WiFi card/adapter at all (or that the Ethernet connection is taking priority).

Try reinstalling your wireless LAN driver from the OEM's website, and check your Device Manager. If the device is completely missing from there, it could mean the WiFi card has failed and needs to be replaced.

is this the right driver?https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/ca/en/downloads/ds112914,if not please send it to me
 

I'm assuming you have the right idea, even though I get a "page not found" from that link.

You didn't mention the make & model of your laptop. What are they?
