Can you change it with: sudo rfkill unblock all? If so, we can make it persistent. –  chili555 Nov 12 '13 at 21:07

To remove the soft block permanently, please open a terminal and do:

gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local

Right above exit 0, add a single line:

rfkill unblock all

Proofread carefully, save and close gedit. You should be all set.
