I have a Laptop Pavilion HP 2000, and it have dual boot on Linux Mint (Tessa) and Windows 10.
For some strange reason, the wifi led on the fn keys shows the wifi as disabled, and pressing it doesn't change the color of the led (from amber meaning off to white meaning on). I don't know how to resolve it.
rfkill list all shows this
0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes
And after pressing the corresponding fn key (fn + F12) it changes to this
0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: yes
Somehow, instead of trying to unlock via hardware, it is locking it and unlocking via software.
More information about my system here (lscpi and other commands output there)
I already verified that the wifi is not blocked by some way on the BIOS (It doesn't even have functions related to any kind of network there). And already reset the Bios like a lot of forums suggest it. Also, unplugged the battery and pressed the power button, and tried to press the wifi button while the computer is booting. Nothing worked.
I think it's important to say that in Windows 10 the wifi is working properly, but it is completely ignoring the led ambar (i think it just ignores the Hard block).
Another thing that i found interesting it's that i tried with a live usb of manjaro (latest version) and it also can't connect to the wifi.
The internet is working properly trough an Ethernet connection, actually, I'm posting this on the laptop that is failing.
Any kind of information will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
