Thanks Camaleón, i have found a solution, when i plug a cable into my
wired NIC, my wireless card become blocked. I realized it when i had
rebooted into my second OS - Archlinux where this card always work without
any problems. My Laptop model is HP 625, so be informed that sometimes
such strange things might happen ;-)
