On every hardware information in web, i see that B570e have Bluetooth - where? System (Fedora 16) says, that there is no bluetooth adapters to use (what?). So - this laptop have or don't have this integrated bluetooth? I don't see any information in lshw about it.
Second - how to run integrated Wi-Fi card: AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express). It's disabled and i can't turn it on (even from Fn+F5). Official lenovo support in poland said, that theres support only Windows and if some hardware not working under linux - it's my problem.
HELP - i've spend last 4 days to do something with this problem.It's a brand new laptop and i can't use it fully.
ps: sorry for english, but it's not my native language
ps: about wi-fi, blocking acer-wmi is not working, because i don't have acer-wmi running.

Well - it's not a problem with acer-wmi, because on my Fedora, this module is't even loaded. Maybe acer-wmi is on some other laptops and on these laptops, this solution works. On software side - problem is solved, rfkill unblock all do the trick. The main problem is with hardware blocade (phy0):
# rfkill unblock all # rfkill list 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes 1: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I've just read some posts about this, that hard blocked is possible to solved only by some Lenovo energy managment software, but this software is only for Windows. Well... i'm downloading right now Windows 7 Enterprise, 90 days trial edition from Microsoft website. I hope, that i switch on wi-fi with that software, switch to Linux, delete Windows and everything will be just fine...but...i lost 6 days of life, only for fight with my new laptop, or fight with Linux.
Anyway - what with bluetooth?
2: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
But there is still no adapters found by the system. I think installing Windows solved all my problems, but i'm using Linux 4 years and i don't have many for buying Windows.
