    Re: How to ASUS K50IJ - Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

    In reference to the WiFi:

    Does the Wifi indicator light stay lit on the laptop itself?

    Does pressing Fn + F2 toggle the WiFi on and off? Does the indicator light itself also toggle on and off properly?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Yes, it's turned on at boot.

    Fn+F2 actually toggles wifi on and off....but sometimes (as it happens after suspend/resume) wifi link doesn't seem able to connect to any access point.

    I usually re-enable the link with following commands sequence:

    rmmod ath9k
    rmmod ath
    rmmod mac80211
    rmmod cfg80211
    modprobe ath9k
    echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/asus_laptop/wlan

    At this point I can connect to any access point through wicd.

    Wifi led stays on despite link is on or off.

    @moosesoom:

    Thank you very much for your detailed response. I was concerned that when the WiFi indicator light stays on that the battery will drain very quickly.

    Is this the case with ASUS K50IJ ?

    I've just found how to fix this bug:

    in /usr/share/acpi-support/state-funcs file

    change line 9 from
    if [ -d $DEVICE/wireless ]; then
    to
    if [ -d $DEVICE/wireless ] || [ -d $DEVICE/phy80211 ]; then


    change line 107 from
    test -w /sys/devices/platform/asus-laptop/wlan && echo -n "$action" > /sys/devices/platform/asus-laptop/wlan
    to
    test -w /sys/devices/platform/asus_laptop/wlan && echo -n "$action" > /sys/devices/platform/asus_laptop/wlan

    According to powertop's output it seems there's no such difference in power consumption with led turned on or off.

    (anyway I've found a previous remark of this bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rt/+bug/451108 )

    uh-oh....little problem, it seems the acpi scripts have no write permission on /sys/devices/platform/asus_laptop/wlan, so the automagical led power toggle is not working when invoked by Fn+F2 shortcut.

    Maybe clean install would help?

    Edit: I am loosing connection than downloading files with "Firefox"...

    So, the problem is not with a program, that is used to download files, but somethere else.
    I found another problem with wifi, it disconnected every 2 mins for a couple of seconds, due to Network Manager's background scanning (if I interpreted well from the googling it's some problem with ath9k driver). "wpa_supplicant[1142]: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS" in syslog and daemon.log every 2 mins show this.
    installing wicd (I installed the latest stable version using their repo http://wicd.sourceforge.net/download.php) solved this problem, it doesn't do background scanning.

    Has anyone tried upgrading to Lucid yet? Rather hoping to avoid surprise mystery black screen this time around.
