Hi, you're right, it's softblocked

I successfully installed rfkill from the i586 repository and got this
reply

0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
1: hp-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth

The led (function key) indicates that wlan should be working. Perhaps I
made a configuration fault?


Hi
So what model HP, do you see any output from the following command?

Code:
lsmod |grep wmi
Hardblock means the Fn (Function key) + a key with the wireless icon on
it needs to be pressed a few times to cycle through bluetooth and
wireless enable/disable. Press the key combination and the run the
rfkill list command to see if any output changes.

Also try unblocking with;
Code:
rfkill unblock 0
rfkill unblock 1
rfkill unblock 2
rfkill unblock 3
