SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132 in BackTrack5 [solved]

Lenovo S12 ION with BackTrack 5 Gnome 32bit edition

I’ve decided to install BackTrack 5 as my second OS on my netbook Lenovo S12. It’s pretty straight forward, but my Wireless wasn’t working.

It appears that some software is blocking it. Notice the first, it says Soft blocked: yes

My output from the terminal:

root@root:~# rfkill list

	Soft blocked: yes
	Hard blocked: no
