Sony Vaio EA series Wireless issue

Postby racerdc on Wed Mar 13, 2013 1:59 pm

Hello! I am new to Linux and I am running Linux Mint 14 on a Sony Vaio EA series laptop. While troubleshooting a wireless connectivity issue at work, I turned off the hardware wireless switch on the front of the laptop (wireless had worked fine before turning the switch to OFF, connectivity issue was actually the AP). Now I cant turn it back on! Tried booting into Windows, but I cant turn it on there either. Card is an Atheros AR9285.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Found the answer on the Ubuntu forums. sudo rfkill unblock wifi fixed the issue.
