I have hp 6730s base model notebook which has a wifi/bluetooth button to turn on/off the wifi and bluetooth .Also it shows yellow led when wireless devices are off and blue when on.

But in xubuntu 13.10 while downloading(or even surfing the net) the led's are blinking and changing color. yellow then blue then again yellow and so on(like disco lights)

How to solve this issue?

edit : I typed the command on the terminal and it says the following about my wireless module:

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection [8086:4237]

also this happens only when bluetooth is not enabled

Please edit your question to add details of your disco wireless device from the terminal: lspci -nn | grep 0280 –  chili555 Dec 5 '13 at 14:00
