I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit on an Acer 7551 laptop. Every time I reboot my laptop, my Atheros 9k wireless is disabled. It's a very simple process to enable it each time (and then it works perfectly), but a process I would like to avoid having to do every reboot. I'm not all that interested in WHY this is happening, just want to know how to fix it - either by changing some config or by simply writing a script to enable wireless on startup. Since I'm fairly new to linux/ubuntu, I'm not really sure how to proceed.
A couple of notes -
- when I run "rfkill list" the wireless says it is "soft blocked".
- "lshw -C network" shows network -DISABLED for the wireless.
Let me know if you need any further info. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
