With hundreds of different models in G series it is impossible to help you without full Model or Product Number.

Many times a hard reset will fix missing/not working hardware like the wireless card. That is essentially what you did by removing power cord and battery. Usually a third step is added by pressing power button for 15 seconds with both removed. Happy it solved it for you!
