I have a dual boot system with Ubuntu 12.04 installed within windows 8 (C drive).
Wifi was working fine, both in ubuntu and windows until yesterday, when I disabled wireless in ubuntu by unchecking the "Enable Wireless" button from the top panel. I wasn't aware that this option was bugged. It went grey after unchecking it, so I couldn't click on it to re-enable it. I looked up for solution to turn the wireless back on and I found a solution.
I followed the steps below:
- Use the command "rfkill unblock all".
- Uncheck "Enable Networking" from the top panel.
- Check "Enable Networking" from the top panel.
- Check "Enable Wireless" from the top panel.
The wifi is working in ubuntu after that. However, I cannot enable wifi in windows.
The following image shows that the Wifi is off.
The following image shows that Wifi adapter is enabled and the diver is working fine.
So I guess I need the "rfkill unblock all" equivalent command in windows to fix this. Any other solution which you think can fix this will also be appreciated.
