Historically, there is an "Enable Wireless" option that I can have ticked or unticked that is just beneath the "Enable Networking" option when I right click on the network bar.
Suddenly this disappeared one day, and I can't connect to wireless, nor does the option even exist to enable wireless.
The output for rfkill list all is below:
rfkill list all 1: tpacpi_bluetooth_sw: Bluetooth Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no
And that is all. There is no wireless that is being displayed.
The output for sudo lshw -C network is:

Does anyone know how I can enable wireless? I have also tried:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
and have checked to make sure drivers are up to date as well.
