Re: wireless not working on ideapad s10e with mint 12

if it is the same problem as my b570 its an easy solution.

in terminal type:

 

sudo service network-manager stop

sudo rmmod acer_wmi

sudo modprobe acer_wmi

sudo rfkill unblock all

sudo service network-manager start

sudo rmmod -f acer_wmi

 

after this it shoud be working temporarily

if it is then go back into terminal and type

 

sudo su

echo "blacklist acer_wmi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

 

after that you should be good to go.
