i need help here, I’m new for openSUSE, I’m installing openSUSE 11.4 at my Asus 1215K laptop, it’s work great, but when i try to turn on my wireless using wifi button, it’s still off. and then i try type lspci -vnn at terminal, i see the hardware(atheros AR9285) and the hardware was detected by openSUSE, can someone help me how to turn on the hardware ??? >,<
thanks for the advice, i was add the repo, and update the wifi kernel, but it still can’t make me turn on the wifi using wifi button.
and i was install rfkill,
result when i type rfkill list :
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked : no
Hard Blocked : yes
I’ve got an ASUS 1015pn, wifibutton doesn’t work there either, although I’ve changed the keyboard settings to an ASUS portable and other buttons work. Only thing I had to do was to install kernel-firmware to get the Broadcom wifi-card to work, maybe try that if you haven’t yet?
Same trouble with HP Pavilion dv2500 and 07:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02). Detected out of the box but turned absolutely off, rfkill lists all blocked, rfkill unblock all freezes. Previous installation of 11.4 worked OK, after new installation to ssd I am not capable of turning wifi on. No winOS on the disk, Ubuntu live starts with wifi turned off but switching the hw switch turns it on.
