Maybe try rebooting your router and/or modem? The problem might stem from there ...

Did it lose the internet account or router

Password? If there has been a power shut off or blip of some kind, which we get here nearly every day, my wireless devices and/or Netflix have to have the password re-entered each time. Sometimes I have to push the button on the top of the router or take the device to the same room as the router and push the button. Good luck! Technology is great...when it works!!!

Always reboot first

I would shut down and restart the router and the computer. That will probably take care of it.

Is the wifi button turned off on the computer. Some computers have a switch and some just have a button the keyboard that looks like a tower. It's easy to do sometimes.
