    wireless not starting automatically?

    New to ubuntu and loving this OS.. Great to be back to Linux...

    Lenovo B575 is not starting wireless automatically...

    Have to run rmmod acer-wmi to get wireless to start.

    I have also ran this (below) on restart (found in a Mint forum) and this does not start it automatically either...Need help with a permanent fix....Thanks.

    Upon startup, input these commands:


    rfkill unblock all
    rfkill list
    (sudo) rmmod acer-wmi

    (sudo) ifconfig wlan0 down
    (wait a few seconds)
    (sudo) ifconfig wlan0 up

    Hi,

    blacklist the module:

    Code:
    echo "blacklist acer_wmi" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
