    Code:
    ##### rfkill ############################
    
    
    0: phy0: Wireless LAN
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: yes

    Your wifi is Hard Blocked. Look for a hardware switch in your computer and toggle it

    Try a BIOS reset as this will sometimes clear a hard block, with some laptops you can shut them down, remove battery and power cord and press the power button for 20 seconds, reconnect battery and power cord and it will clear the hard block

    I am not sure how it works as I am not familiar with BIOS coding, all I know is that it does work for some computers when we can't see anything else wrong
