Everything was working fine on my Macbook PRO 2010 (a1278). I leave it suspended a few hours and when I get back the Wi-Fi wasn't working. Looks like a hardware failure, I rebooted it a few times without success. Now I reinstalled Mavericks but the problem persists. I mean, I don't have any option to configure Wi-Fi.

Any idea how can I solve this?

Once you get the Wi-Fi: No hardware installed, there is no option on the title bar to toggle on/off and doing in from network preferences does nothing.

I have this same issue with my Macbook Pro 15" Mid-2010 OS 10.11 and I have replace the Airport card twice and the ribbon cable once. No go.

I am now using a Linksys AE6000 USB adapter for wifi.
