Opensuse 15.3.18-150300.59.68 not starting my Intel 4965AG. Thinkpad laptop has a wifi switch that I usually leave off because I mostly use it on eth0. It’s been nearly a year since I travelled w/ this laptop and it’s been through many kernel & system updates since then. Perhaps with the wifi radio switched off the needed config did not get made? Whatever, I have tried a lot of stuff and get nowhere. Rfkill list shows software off, hw on. I can force it on but cannot make it connect to AP.
hardware probe sees the wifi radio. I booted into an old XP partition and the wifi works ok.
I had system set to wicked. I tried to change it to network manager but when I do the radio turns off again.
lsmod shows iwl4965 so I know that is not the proble.
I’m looking for info on what commands to run to fix this issue. Sorry to be so vague, this problem is so frustrating.
