I'm trying to give an old laptop (HP Pavilion tx 2000z) to my nephew before he leaves Canada to UK tomorrow(!), but the hardware wireless toggle button is broken. The button simply feels like it's missing a spring.
Ubuntu does not show any Wifi hardware (should be a Broadcom). Any tips to look into it, maybe from the command line? The Broadcom Ethernet does work.
I also installed Broadcom's proprietary driver: bcmwl-kernel-source without any effect.
~$ rfkill list all 0: hp-bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: yes ~$ sudo lshw -class network PCI (sysfs)
Thanks a lot!
