    Wireless not working under 12.04 / Lenovo B560 laptop

    Hi,

    I cannot get the wireless working on my new Lenovo B560 laptop with Ubuntu 12.04.

    Fn+F5 doesn't do anything.

    rfkill list all shows:
    Code:
    0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: yes
    1: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: yes
    and lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net shows:
    Code:
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications AR8131 Gigabit Ethernet [1969:1063] (rev c0)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:3956]
