I cant get both wifi and bt to be running simultaneously. when you start one, it just kills the other.

Could you run this command in terminal and post the output:

Code: Select all

rfkill list
Then please try to enable the wifi or bluetooth (whichever is currently down) and run the command again. Does it show any difference? Please post that output too.

Bluetooth appears to only work after rebooting. and wifi is turned off...
HOWEVER,,,because im trying to sort this out, i restarted to run the command again to get the BT on output, and now both are UP. first time ever

Mainly, I could care less about Bluetooth.
All i want is wifi to work after sleep and after boot consistently.
