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?

i installed rfkill rfkill - tool for enabling and disabling wireless devices
then i checked " rfkill list " output and it said
# rfkill list

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
