Network Manager WiFi Hard blocked

Postby tomduese » 2017-03-15 08:26

Hi,

NM detects the wrong hardware status:

Image

OS: Debian Jessie
Kernel: Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.39-1+deb8u1 (2017-02-22) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Hardware: HP EliteBook 2540p & AWUS036NH: Bus 002 Device 028: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter
NetworkManager 0.9.10.0

What should I do? :D

Best regards.

Tom

It would also be a good idea to at least tell which version of Debian you are using and the specs of your hardware.

I think you should try unblocking them all. If that works, add a [keyfile] section to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and list the others as umanaged-devices by mac address. I guess you could pull the plug on the others also by removing the modules? or by listing them in any way in /etc/network/interfaces

I don't have a link handy about this, but man networkmanager.conf or so should be helpful, if unblocking all works to get the device showing up correctly.

Try:
Code: Select all
# modprobe -r hp-wifi
# rfkill unblock all
# modprobe hp-wifi

If that doesn't work, blacklist the hp-wmi module.

I think the idea is, selectively disabling or hard and/or soft blocking only some interfaces (multiple interfaces) with rfkill doesn't work?

Your right! - That's the way it works!
Thank you!

The workaround is to unblock all devices with the hardware switch and afterwards disable the unwanted devices by removing the modules with modprobe.

But the general question is: Why turns the hardware switch on the laptop an external USB-WiFi adapter in the Network-Manager off?
