I installed 13.04 Ubuntu on my Asus U82U today and I can't find a way to fix the problem.I've tried almost everything, even reinstalled and tried on Linux Mint. Wifi worked fine with Windows 8.

Any suggestions?

Hard blocked: yes <-- Find a hardware switch on your laptop. This is really all over this site, really. –  gertvdijk Sep 2 '13 at 19:21
    
tried, didin't work. Even removed eth cable, still nothing –  user2488832 Sep 2 '13 at 19:22
    
In your command prompt type sudo jockey-gtk. Hopefully it would try to scan your available drivers and also fix it. Do it once and reply. –  Saurav Kumar Sep 2 '13 at 19:22

After an extensive serach I have found that most people recommend... installing Windows + wireless drivers, unlocking WiFi there and then WiFi should work. People who had the same chipset installed, but in different laptop model sometimes were able to invoke WiFi through BIOS, but I was unable to find anything in BIOS menu or the internet for Asus U82U. :-(
