    Re: Atheros AR9285/Ubuntu 11.04/Toshiba NB200 (Wireless Hard Blocked?)

    I deleted the file and run the command as suggested.
    the second lot is as per below
    Code:
     iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any  
              Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=off   
              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Power Management:on
    Code:
           
     rfkill list
    0: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: yes
    Code:
    sudo iwlist scan
    lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down

    There is no button, switch, etc.? Did you try Fn+F2?

    I have tried fn+f8 which is the Wireless button but didn't work either.
    Not other switch as far as i can see

    Re: Atheros AR9285/Ubuntu 11.04/Toshiba NB200 (Wireless Hard Blocked?)

    Is there the following module present?

    Code:
    modinfo toshiba_acpi
    If yes, try to load it via:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v toshiba_acpi
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    sudo service network-manager restart
    Check:

    Code:
    iwconfig
    dmesg | egrep 'tosh|radio|switch|kill'
    sudo iwlist scan
    rfkill list

    Ok, its the "wrong" one. Try these modules one by one:

    http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Baustelle...-nicht-geladen

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v modulename
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    and check after that with

    Code:
    rfkill list
    iwconfig
    lsmod | grep modulename
    dmesg | grep modilename
    If it doesnt work and the module is loaded unload it via

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rf modulename
    If it is not loaded try the next one.

    Re: Atheros AR9285/Ubuntu 11.04/Toshiba NB200 (Wireless Hard Blocked?)

    I have tried all of them, the below didn't throw a fatal error, however it i could not unblock the wireless card.

    fujitsu_laptop
    ideapad_laptop
    msi_laptop
    panasonic_laptop
    sony_laptop

    How do i check a module is loaded?

    Iwconfig has never changed from the below.
    Code:
     iwconfig lo        no wireless extensions.  eth0      no wireless extensions.  wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any             Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=off              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off           Power Management:on

    Check also the "_wmi" modules.

    Code:
    lsmod
    checks all the loaded modules (left column)

    Re: Atheros AR9285/Ubuntu 11.04/Toshiba NB200 (Wireless Hard Blocked?)

    I tried all the modules one by one, and all the others are simply not working. Only the above listed modules can be loaded on my machine.
    This is lsmod list before loading any wireless module. I was wondering if any of the below loaded modules can conflicts with my wireless.

    Code:
    lsmod

    Re: Atheros AR9285/Ubuntu 11.04/Toshiba NB200 (Wireless Hard Blocked?)

    Just a quick reply (I am getting lost in this thread ):

    Reboot twice, once with the key combination pressed, once with the combination pressed repeatedly during the complete boot time. Check also Fn+F2 with that
