Wireless not working

Hello!
So I've installed arch linux a couple of days ago but can't get my wifi working. It is supposed to be hard blocked when I run the rfkill command but I already tried the physical switch to no avail. The problem might be with the airplane mode which is stucked on but I can't get it off. I have an hp pavilion g6. My wireless card is ralink rt5390. Thanks

Re: Wireless not working

How did you try to get it working? Does it have firmware support? What network manager are you using? Not using multiple network managers?

What is the output of

uname -a
lspci -k
ip a

Re: Wireless not working

You could maybe try to unload the "hp_wmi" module and then try to unblock with rfkill:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/393639/ … led/393652

I have also read something about resetting the bios might sometimes help, but then you might have to restore your boot entries.

Re: Wireless not working

I've already tried resetting the BIOS but nothing changes.
I've also tried the solution provided in the link you shared to no avail

Re: Wireless not working

sudo journalctl -b | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io

Do you have a parallel windows installation?
The wifi key on F12 doesn't work w/ and w/o Fn pressed?

Re: Wireless not working

Yes I have a parallel windows installation and the wifi works fine. No I don't need to to press the fn key in combination with the f12 key to get the wifi key working. I just need to press the f12 key.

Re: Wireless not working

Make sure it still is as windows updates have a habit of re-enabling it.

No I don't need to to press the fn key in combination with the f12 key to get the wifi key working. I just need to press the f12 key.

The idea was to use the complementary shortcut on linux since the Fn key might be reversed.

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=187274 suggests that suspending the system and waking it may help to release the block and last but not least try to deactivate https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Networ … domization (though there's no direct error itr in the log, this is the last time the wlo1 NIC shows up…)

Re: Wireless not working

That's only the second command. We need to see the modules as well.

I would try blocking any *wmi* modules from loading.

Re: Wireless not working

So try blocking the wmi_bof, hp_wmi and wmi modules. Or just unload them and see if that unblocks the wireless card.

Re: Wireless not working

I've also tried blocking any wmi modules as stated to no avail.
I used the command :

 modprobe -r hp-wmi wmi-bmof

then

modprobe -r wmi 

as I couldn't directly block the wmi module since it was used by hp-wmi and wmi-bmof.
After that I've restarted NetworkManager but it still didn't work

Re: Wireless not working

Did you try rfkill after unloading the modules?
