Hi there,

Welcome to the Games4theworld Forum!
I still think it's a driver issue though. First of all, make sure that you have all Windows Updates installed, including all the "Optional" ones!

Restart your PC afterwards. Is it still not working?
If not, go to: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/ideapad-y560?type=Laptops-and-netbooks&c=1 , and confirm that's your laptop.

If so, you can use one of the following download links to get the Wireless LAN drivers for your specific laptop model:
32bit: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/ideapad-y560/downloads/DS008558
64bit: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/ideapad-y560/downloads/DS007848

Note that these drivers are actually for Windows 7, but since there are no Wireless drivers for Windows 8.1 for your specific laptop model, we'll use these. They should work just fine though.
After installing the driver, restart your PC.
