    It appears to have all the driver it needs. However, it also appears that there is another problem:
    *-network:0 DISABLED

    Let's have a look at:
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    dmesg | grep ipw
    Thanks.

    Find the wireless switch on your laptop, switch it and you'll be all set.

    What is the make and model of laptop? Is there a physical switch or a key combination such a Fn+F5 or, as on my Lenovo, both?

    Off for the evening. I'll see you tomorrow.

    Just to say many thanks to chili555.
    I've solved my wireless issue ("Failed to sendPOWER_MODE: Command timed out") reading his threads.
    On Acer old laptop there is a wireless switch....
    Best regards.
