first of all, I am new to Linux. My problem is that my WIFI and Bluetooth are hardblocked (rfkill list).
I am using a Thinkpad x220. It has a button to block the wireless connections (fn + f5). It seems that this cannot be unblocked.
I have “tried sudo rfkill unblock all” to solve the problem. Without success. Do you have any ideas?
Are you dual booting with windows? I had a problem where windows hibernates and then when I restart into linux I cannot start wifi.
This can happen if you don’t have Windows fast start up feature turned off in Windows 10 that uses hiber-file. So that is a possibility so i would turn that feature off in Windows 10 to start with.
Edit: Hard Block is the switch on the left side of the Thinkpad. x220
I did not notice the switch. I only bought the Thinkpad second-hand a few days ago. Thank you!
You guys are really helpfull. Thank you!
Does that work for you?
Yes, solved it immediately
You can mark it solved then if you could thanks.
