I have a Asus f550c laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 installed. When it starts up, the wireless device is off, and the key combination fn+F2 to turn it on does not work.
To activate the wireless device, the work around I have been using is to hibernate the laptop and to recover it from hibernation. After the laptop comes out of hibernation for some magical reason the wireless card works.
Does anyone have a solution to avoid having to use this hibernation workaround, so that the wireless card works on startup?
