In my Yoga 2 pro, the Intel wireless-n 7260 chip is hardware disabled when using linux.
I checked it with fedora, ubuntu and suse. The output of "rfkill list" is always the same:
0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes . . .
How do i unlock it?
I have a dual boot with ubuntu & win 8.1 right now.
Solved! Go to Solution.

For others with the same problem, here's how i solved it:
There is a module called "ideapad_laptop" that prevents the wifi module to start.
A good workaround is to disable that module by blacklisting it. This worked for me with Ubuntu and Xubuntu. This guy seems to have done the same thing on fedora.
Make a new file for your personal blacklist
$ sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/myownblacklist.conf
and add an entry for the module
reboot and you are good to go!
To only disable the module without blacklisting it, do that:
sudo modprobe -r ideapad_laptop
