I disabled WiFi and I cannot re-enable

Post by Minteum » Tue Jan 16, 2018 3:39 pm

It cannot be re-enabled. It seems dead after disabling it. It does not even show the list of Wi-Fi networks available.
What should I do?

Rfkill list all:

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blkcked: no

And then the "kill all" did not fix the issue.
