I have a problem with setting up my wireless connection. Recently I have installed Arch Linux on my machine without setting wireless at all (I used wired connection). Now, I want to configure my wireless connection but I when I try to turn it on:
idea-arch ~ # ip link set wlp8s0 up RTNETLINK answers: Operation not possible due to RF-kill
Here are some outputs:
idea-arch ~ # ip link 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: enp7s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP mode DEFAULT qlen 1000 link/ether dc:0e:a1:7d:af:5f brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff 6: wlp8s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN mode DEFAULT qlen 1000 link/ether 74:e5:0b:cc:80:ba brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff idea-arch ~ # rfkill list all 0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no 5: phy3: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes
I have tried using Fn+F5 but it leads only to soft block. Also, I have tried
rmmod iwlwifi and
rmmod iwldvm while I have my hardware switch on laptot off. Then I turn it on my laptot and did
modprobe iwlwifi and
modprobe iwldvm - still no success.
I am using Lenovo Ideapad Y570, shiped with Windows 7 but reinstall to only Arch Linux machine. My network adapters according to
lspci|grep -i net are:
idea-arch ~ # lspci|grep -i net 07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM57781 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) 08:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak]
I am sure that hardware switch is on. What else can I do?
