Jeffrey Warren, thank you for your comments. Just to clarify, you
initially had the WiFi enabled in BIOS, booted into Ubuntu and updated,
then booted into the BIOS and found it disabled?

Title:
  14e4:4727 [Asus 1015PE] WiFi disabled in BIOS upon installation of
  Ubuntu 13.10

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete

Bug description:
  I successively upgraded from 12.04 LTS to 12.10 to 13.04 to 13.10 on
  my Asus EEE PC 1015PED, and upon booting, I saw "wifi disabled via
  hardware switch" in the network-manager toolbar menu. rfkill list
  returned

  4: brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: yes

  and I wasn't able to use the hardware switch (Fn-F2 or the custom
  button) or sudo rfkill unblock all to enable it. I struggled for a
  long time with drivers, but eventually found that it was simply
  disabled in BIOS, and by enabling it there at boot time, it worked
  again!

  I'm not sure if this is a bug in an installer, or if there should just
  be an advisory in network-manager or in the Network system prefs
  indicating ways to enable wifi, but I didn't want anyone else to have
  to struggle as much as I did.
