Never mind that, it's a bad device, not getting recognized now in previous kernel or windows machine.

Occasionally the wifi card on my HP Elitebook gets 'lost' no matter what distribution I try to boot. First time it happened I thought it was damaged wifi, but turned out to be some software had somehow changed BIOS settings in some as yet undiscovered way. I don't even know what BIOS change occurred since everything looked the same... Anyway, whenever that happens on my machine a fix is to go into BIOS and reset to 'defaults' - no idea why that works, as I say, and can't say if that would work on any other machine, but worth a try... Certainly, I would have considered my machine a wireless 'brick' had I not stumbled upon that 'wifi reset' procedure. Doing all sorts of rfkill command, on the other hand, did not fix anything...

@wiak, it's too late to try anything now, got frustrated last night and hit it with a hammer, it was old anyway, getting a new one soon as they're pretty cheap.

@rockedge, nothing wrong with your kernel if it doesn't runs bad hardware.

Thanks to all for help Smile
