i am currently working on fixing the wifi on my friends lenovo V570 laptop and am having great difficulty. i have tried many of the solutions and none have worked!
wifi light not on
the wifi on/off button on the computer and on the control panel is non responsive
also the computer is running a fresh install of Linux Mint 13
and i do not believe it is a problem with acer_wmi because i blacklisted it and i dont think it is on this computer, but i wouldn't rule that out completely just because i'm not absolutely sure that its not on here.
