I have a Clevo MobiNote W130EW notebook with Ubuntu 12.10 running on it. When I start the computer it shows the wireless as hardware bloked:
$ rfkill list 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes
This is even though the actual physical switch is in the 'on' position. When I flip the physical switch to 'off' and then back; the wireless gets enabled. The same thing also happens when the laptop hibernates, i.e. the wireless is disabled despite the physical switch indicating that it should be on. The same "solution" works here.
I would like the wireless to correctly reflect the state of the physical switch.
Any help with debugging this problem would also be greatly appreciated!
