Wifi hardblocked after suspend!

I’ve had this issue for quite a while but it would be nice to fix it.

Wifi is working fine, then, after closing the lid and reopening the wifi is hardblocked. There is no hard switch to press to get it back on.

I’ve tried adding acpi stuff to grub, fiddled with systemd, following discussions on this forum and others, but to no avail.

Not sure what the problem is. The driver is a few up from the device but not a clue if that’s relevant at all.

Anyone got any ideas? Thank you :slight_smile:

Maybe this helps:
