    Please post:
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    lsmod | grep wmi

    well, it just started working again... it seems to be going on and off. Here it is with it working, if it goes out again i'll post that too.

    Here's the output of rfkill list all:
    Code:
    0: hci0: Bluetooth
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: no
    1: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: no
    2: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: no
    3: phy0: Wireless LAN
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: no
    Here's the output of lsmod | grep wmi:
    Code:
    snd_rawmidi            30486  1 snd_seq_midi
    snd_seq_device         14462  3 snd_seq_midi,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq
    snd                    67382  17 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_hwdep,snd_pcm,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device
    Thank you so much for the help, i really didn't want to give up on ubuntu, but i wasn't sure i'd be able to get it working.

    I hope it won't go out, but if it does, post back and I'll be glad to help.
