WLan Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 2x2 AGN on Dell M4500

Hello
I installed Tumbleweed from scratch on Dell M4500.
However I have problems with using WLAN.

I cannot activate WLan in the Network Plasmoid:

On the drivers side, yes, but there is nothing that indicates the rfkill status.

  1. If not present, install package “rfkill”

  2. Have a look at the output of

/usr/sbin/rfkill list

  1. Read “man rfkill” if a soft block is indicated.

Hi Thanks for the advice.

rfkill was already installed. But I had to use it to unblock the device…

Thanks,
