Please give us more information. Is your wifi adapter not being recognized? Do you see networks but can't you connect? And paste the output of lspci. –  OrangeTux Feb 10 at 21:04
    
Why is your wireless hard-blocked? This usually indicates that the wireless switch or key combination is set to turn the wireless off. Can you manipulate the switch and get it to work? –  chili555 Feb 11 at 14:35
