  • Rfkill listing not going to do anything... No errors there, actually no output , just a prompt $. Commented Apr 24, 2017 at 18:45
  • I enabled wifi through command line, by executing " sudo nmcli radio wifi on " and included this command at rc.local to execute each time at startup. Bug found... GUI network Manager wifi switch not working properly, if I disabled it, it stuck at disabled mode, untill I renable it again through cli. Commented Apr 24, 2017 at 18:49
  • I think I can submit a patch of this bug... How can I get the eOS source code ? Specially the network Manager part ? Commented Apr 24, 2017 at 18:52
  • apt-get source followed by the package name after enabling source code repositories

You can fix the issue with the command line (in a terminal window):

sudo nmcli radio wifi on
  • the command - $ sudo nmcli radio wifi on Worked perfectly. Thanks!

A lot of Wifi glitches can be fixed just by updating your linux kernel.
