try: sudo rfkill unblock all

The following Terminal output (that you sent us) shows the issue that your wireless card is
having:

"
*-network DISABLED
       description: Wireless interface
       product: AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)
       vendor: Atheros Communications Inc.

running connected disabled disabled enabled enabled

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any
          Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off

"

So your wireless card is disabled by a hardware switch, a
special key combination (Fn-F2, etc...), by incorrect BIOS settings for
wireless, or a combination of these factors...

There might also be a BIOS option that allows you to have the wireless
functionality controlled "By application"

Search for the "by application" option in the BIOS and select it (if
possible)....

Also run the following 2 Terminal commands to try to change the rfkill
state of your wireless chipset:

rfkill unblock all

sudo rfkill unblock all

Then retest wireless.

Thanks Mark Rijckenberg, that solved my question.

Thanks for the help, I might have compounded my problem by trying to use a RTL8191 usb wireless device at the same time.

I removed it and ran the command line rfkill unblock all and it now works on reboot after reboot.

THANKS1
