This post in no way belongs in "LQ Suggestions & Feedback".

If you disabled the wireless adapter in Network Manager. By reversing the process you used to disable it, you should be able to re-enable it.

Have you tried re-enabling it in Network Manager?

ok finally i found it and for anyone who has same issue u can try the same
i installed rfkill rfkill - tool for enabling and disabling wireless devices
then i checked " rfkill list " output and it said
# rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
2: hp-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

and here i noticed

hp-wifi softblocked yes

next i did
rfkill unblock all

and then i got the icon for enable wireless in network manager


thanks to all for their support

cheers
