comment How to make modprobe ideapad-lenovo permanent / run on startup (Ubuntu)?
Your command removes ideapad-xx; it doesn't load it. You'd need to blacklist the module if you want to keep it from loading. In addition, I believe the module is ideapad-laptop and not ideapad-lenovo.

Did you try: sudo modprobe -r ideapad_laptop? Any change?

comment Ubuntu 14.04 can't detect wireless card
If you have no internet connection and therefore have no linux-headers-generic and no build-essential, the package will never compile. Downloading all those two packages and all of their dependencies will be a long, tedious process. If you install Ubuntu 14.10, the driver is included by default.

Not sarcasm at all. I understand perfectly. Please try inserting the USB and press Enter.

Are you able to insert the DVD? Can you instead get a temporary internet connection by ethernet or tethered or whatever means? Your translation is just fine!!
