    Asus K54HR WiFi hard blocked

    Hi,

    I have a laptop (Asus K54HR) with dual boot (Ubuntu 19.04 and Win10), on linux wifi is hard blocked, on win10 everything works fine.

    I already tried some settings found online, I reinstalled ubuntu, I restore bios to default, there is no physical switch.

    Any help?

    Normally there will be an fn key combo that will turn on the wifi card. However the user's manual for your Laptop say's the following about wireless
    "Bluetooth / Wireless Indicator
    This is only applicable on models with internal Bluetooth (BT)
    and built-in wireless LAN. This indicator will light to show that
    the Notebook PC’s built-in Bluetooth (BT) function is activated.
    When the built-in wireless LAN is enabled, this indicator will also
    light. (Windows software settings are necessary.)"
    Notice that it says windows software is needed.
    But Please go to a terminal and type this command and post the output back here.
    Code:
    rfkill list all

    I have a Fn+F2 switch, it seems to work only on software layer.

    rfkill list all
    Code:
    0: asus-wlan: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
    1: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: yes

    Could be an "Asus classic". Please run

    Code:
    echo "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf
    and reboot. Please show
    Code:
    lsmod
    rfkill list
    afterwards

    A little better but it still doesn't work: wifi is green on boot, when I press Fn+F2 wifi led turns on/off

    I also tried wapf values 0,1,2,3,4

    lsmod

    Do not press Fn combo after rebooting, but show
    Code:
    rfkill list
    If it is soft blocked, then run
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
