View Full Version : [ubuntu] 1 switch for 2 wireless network adaptos

October 13th, 2010, 05:00 AM
I am using 2 wireless network adaptors,
one intel 5300 AGN (driver iwlagn)
and the other one smc ezconnect ( driver zd1211rw), a usb adaptor
The intel 5300 AGN has a hardware switch.
However, everytime i turn off the hardware switch of intel 5300 AGN,
the smc ezconnect adaptor is turned off too. How to I prevent this(how to make 2 switch for 2 adaptors?)

I have the same problem with a Dell XPS M1330: Whenever I disable wireless with the built-in switch, all adapters (the internal one plus additional USB adapters) are disabled.
Is there any way to only use the switch for wlan0 (the internal adapter)?
