    Default How to reconfigure network settings as WiFi is not working.

    Hi I am Rupesh from India and I have Toshiba satellite c55 b894 laptop and I have installed opensuse leap 42.3 about three months ago when it was launched. I have not made any modifications to setting's upto now.

    Up to yesterday I am able to browse internet without any problems but at present on the desktop status bar I am able to see messages such as "WiFi disabled by hardware switch", "WiFi hardware disabled" etc.,.

    In GNOME I have tried to make WiFi on but failed I mean it is always in off mode.

    As network is not working in yast network settings Network Setup Method I have changed to wicked and still there is no use I have changed back to network manager and even no use. At present network is managed by network-manager.

    For your reference I am providing the output of the commands iwconfig, hwinfo below.

    Code:
    linux-tg2q:~ # iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any

    Another issue is I have entered network services (xinetd) and it is showing as disabled and when I select enable and then finish I am getting warning as " All services are marked as disabled ( locked). Internet super-server will be disabled ". I have checked whether xinetd is disabled in services and found disabled so I have enabled it several times even no use I mean it is always showing as disabled.

    I am able to browse internet on Windows without any problems but not in opensuse.

    Please suggest how to freshly re configure the network so that I can browse internet properly.
    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    Surprisingly internet is now working properly and I dont know what happened. I am suspecting that it will not work again in future and trouble me.
