  sudo lshw -class network

claims that no interface is available, then you perhaps pushed the
laptop's button, to disable it. Or if it's not the build in Wifi, you
need to remove and plug in again the USB Wifi thingy or what ever else,
consider to post commands and their output.

What's the output of

  sudo lshw -class network


  pidof dhcpcd

and assuming you're using NM

  systemctl status NetworkManager.service

  sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager.service
  sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.service
