If anybody knows how to make this permenant, that will be much appreciated. The only problem is it would only connect straight after boot-up – if I waited several seconds before switching the wifi on then the connection would fail as before, which suggests that something may be running that is blocking it. To post a comment you must log in. Ok, so the problem is definitely not the mainline kernel, but could still be our patches. No to Soft blocked: I’ve also tried wicd instead of NetworkManager. Then I did today’s system updates via Synaptic , which seemed to include a new kernel?

I also tried the work around and wirelezs following your instructions my wireless card was picking up networks but wouldn’t connect to them. And yes, the device number shown for phy0 changes from 4 to 1 after working, it is not a typing error.
Sorry for the delay, yes I had tried to just press ar0501 physical wifi button but it did not work it worked quite well to start this whole mess though.
I keep returning to netwkrk problem every few months to have another crack at it and to see if any updates have helped the problem but there’s still no joy. Hi Seth, thanks for looking at this. Once at work, I started the laptop again, and now I have the “wireless is disabled by a hardware switch” issue.
So we have the same problem, software-versions, and network-adator, but it seems we have different symptoms. This website is using cookies.
Hello Seth, I will try this a bit later on when I am at home and can connect it to the internet via wire: I see Matthew Garrett already suggested you try unblocking it. Even though I had my ethernet cable plugged into the laptop, it was still trying to reconnect to a wifi network ar501 the house, and there is no telling how long this dialog box had been up, causing my cpu to run hotter.

More information is better than no information. I can see all the wireless networks in my area and wirdless signal strength is good but it keeps asking me again and again for my passkey even though I am definitely entering it correctly.
Can you provide the output of ‘rfkill list’ before and after pressing the button?

Then nm-applet starts trying to find the connection again. I tried it for a while but found there ar501 no difference could see all networks but only connect to unsecured ones.
