I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my new Yoga Pro 2 and the wireless is not working. It started with Windows 8 on it.

The Network Manager says Wi-Fi is disabled by hardware switch.

I tried putting a blacklist file in ect/modprobe.d as has been suggested in many places. I called the file "blacklist-ideapad_laptop.conf" and wrote in the file blacklist ideapad_laptop

I checked to make sure that the wireless is enabled in the BIOS. It is.

I ran rfkill list all and it displayed:

0: hci0: Bluetooth
         Soft blocked: no
         Hard blocked: no

2: phy0: Wireless LAN
         Soft blocked: no
         Hard blocked: yes

I ran iwlist wlan0 scan and it displayed:

wlan0    Failed to read scan data : Network is down

I ran sudo rmmod ideapad_laptop and it displayed:

rmmod: ERROR: Module ideapad_laptop is not currently loaded.

I ran ifconfig wlp1s0 up and it displayed:

wlp1s0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device.

I ran "lspci" and it displayed:

01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev 6b)

I ran sudo lshw -c network and it displayed:

This No wireless with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 7260 seems to be dealing with a similar issue. It suggests that I need to update my firmware. So I downloaded iwlwifi-7260-ucode-23.214.9.0 from Intel's website. I put the file "iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode" in /lib/firmware and ran "sudo lshw -c network" again. It displayed exactly as before.

After moving iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode to /lib/firmware I ran "sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi" and "sudo modprobe iwlwifi"

Is there something else I need to do install the new firmware?

  • Yes, it seems to have no effect. – user293004 Jun 12 '14 at 22:01
  • I haven't had any success with link or link thus far. Any help would be appreciated. – user293004 Jun 15 '14 at 19:05

Just a quick idea but try the following code:

rfkill unblock 2

I See that you have a blocked wireless
