I installed 14.04 LTS if that helps. But honestly, I wasn't expecting anyone to compile it for me! Thank you so much for going that extra!

Thank you! Obviously the hardest part of this problem is that I want to avoid going and buying a USB-Ethernet cable - otherwise I could have followed any of the previous instructions (although with difficulty!)

I used sudo rmmod ideapad_laptop and then rfkill unblock... No success any of the times I tried it. Remember, Wifi has also been blocked within Windows too - the forum above suggests that linux has written some bits telling everyone to turn off wifi.
