What is the brand of your computer/laptop?

You might have version of the problem that
the kernel module for acer laptops and wireless devices is loaded on
laptops of other brands
including Lenovo and Sony devices.
Compare threads tagged with -acer-wmi- (click on the according tag I
added at the bottom).
What irritates me is that your intel device is not shown at all with
"rfkill list all".

You may check if acer-wmi is loaded by 
Code:
--------------------
    lsmod | grep acer*
--------------------
.

Martin

After tinkered it a while i can make it work with this : 

http://tinyurl.com/7k8yohd

My laptop is thinkpad edge e420 , all i have to do is blacklist the
acer wireless 

so you have to vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf 

add the following line 

blacklist acer_wmi

I staggered a bit when i see the file doesn't exist , but when I create
one and added the line it's all working .. Hope anyone who have the same
problem don't take as long as me :) 

Thanks for your reply .. :)

I guess the file normally used for the blacklist has just slide an
other name under openSUSE than under Ubuntu, compare:
Tag: 'acer-wmi' (http://forums.opensuse.org/tags/acer-wmi.html)
->
Thread: 'Atheros ath9k driver: wireless won't connect, says WLAN
