Did you do internet search of your error message: Operation not possible due to RF-kill ?

That's usually best thing you can do, errors messages are good pointers to solve problem.

Try
Code: Select all
sudo rfkill list all

I did, and I see 2 solved posts that might be of use to the OP, maybe they should at least try, I wil share the links,:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=173808
This one first, but more important is the one suggested in that thread:

From:https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=173808

I had the same problem. I've solved it by blacklisting hp_wmi. Do this as root:

# echo "blacklist hp_wmi" > /etc/modprobe.d/hp.conf

Reboot, then unblock all WiFi with (as root):

# rfkill unblock all

That's all.

from: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1356823#p1356823 Try this as well :

$sudo rm /dev/rfkill

and reboot.

And what has that to do with arzgi's suggestions?

Please post the requested output.

That would only be relevant if the OP has an HP laptop, which they do not.

That's an, erm, interesting suggestion but even if it worked /dev/rfkill would be re-created at the next boot.

it is not a hp laptop

I used this iso file to install( maybe have bugs) : debian-live-10.3.0-amd64-lxqt+nonfree.iso
https://cdimage.debian.org/images/unoff ... so-hybrid/

I tried on these two 12 inches laptops same problem. by default ,there is no rf-kill installed

1: Thinkpad X220 (hardware switch button on left side and a Fn+F5 for wireless switch)

2: Panasonic CF-NX2 (hardware switch button only)

maybe "firmware-10.3.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso" have no such problem

It's not half as annoying as your refusal to supply details requested by forum users who are trying to help you... :roll:

FYI that rfkill problem is pretty easy to fix and if you start co-operating then we will show you how.
