    Asus X450CC Wifi Hard Block

    Asus X450CC wifi has been hard blocked. Tested on other Linux distros and result is the same. Wifi cannot be turned on and remains hard blocked. Current Linux distro in use is Xubuntu 16.0.1 and is dual booted to Windows 10. The wifi works fine on Windows 10. Laptop has no physical wifi switch.

    https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2181558 did not work for me.

    Re: Asus X450CC Wifi Hard Block

    As far as I know, there are only a few things that can be done. The first is the asus-nb-wmi parameter. From the terminal:

    Code:
    sudo -i
    echo "options asus-nb-wmi wapf=0"  >  /etc/modprobe.d/asus-nb-wmi.conf
    exit
    Reboot and test the Fn+F2 button. If this is ineffective, try a different parameter:

    Code:
    sudo -i
    echo "options asus-nb-wmi wapf=1"  >  /etc/modprobe.d/asus-nb-wmi.conf
    exit
    Or else:

    Code:
    sudo -i
    echo "options asus-nb-wmi wapf=4"  >  /etc/modprobe.d/asus-nb-wmi.conf
    exit
    In all cases, reboot. I recommend that you disregard the wireless light or LED. Check by pressing the Fn+F2 key combination and check:

    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Press the Fn+F2 combination again and check:

    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Another option is to remove the module completely:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r asus-wmi
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    rfkill list all
    Please let us know the result of these steps.

    Re: Asus X450CC Wifi Hard Block

    Changing tha wapf value does nothing for me. I checked this by pressing the Fn+F2 combination.
    I also tried removing the asus-nb-wmi module and unblocking all. When I checked the list again, only the phy0 Wireless LAN was left and it was still hard blocked.
