Solution :

  1. Inside Terminal, execute the following command:
    root@riyaniezt:~# rfkill unblock all
  2. Inside Terminal, execute the following command:
    root@riyaniezt:~# cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state 
    
    [main]
    NetworkingEnabled=true
    WirelessEnabled=false
    WWANEnabled=true
    WimaxEnabled=true
  3. Inside Terminal, execute the following command:
    root@riyaniezt:~# /etc/init.d/network-manager restart
    Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
    utility, e.g. service network-manager restart
    
    Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
    Upstart job, you may also use the stop(8) and then start(8) utilities,
    e.g. stop network-manager ; start network-manager. The restart(8) utility is also available.
    network-manager stop/waiting
    network-manager start/running, process 7444


  4. Inside Terminal, execute the following command:
    root@riyaniezt:~# lshw -C network
      *-network
