[Bug 1387306] [NEW] unable to re-enable wifi


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I upgraded ubuntu from 14.04 to 14.10.
After disabling Wi-fi (uncheck "Enable Wi-Fi" in the upper right corner), rebooting, I could not find a way to re-enable it. 
I was unable to do it using the command line either, and had to eventually reboot with an old kernel to enable it graphically, then come back to the most recent kernel (3.16.0-24-generic). I have an intel card (iwlwifi-7260).
