To get back your wifi, type in terminal:


Code: Select all
sudo rfkill list




You will get back something like this:



Code: Select all
0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no
    1: dell-bluetooth: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
    2: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no
    4: hci0: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no




As you could see (0,2) the Wireless Lan has been soft blocked. We need to unblock it to get it up and working properly:


Code: Select all
 sudo rfkill unblock 0
sudo rfkill unblock 2






Restart your networking:


Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
