I have just installed elementary OS Loki and it looks great. I have one problem though. WiFi is not working. During installation it worked perfectly and I was able to connect to my home network and check on the boxes for download updates & third party software. Now my laptop WiFi button's LED is yellow instead of white and it says WiFi is disabled. What should I do?
nmcli radio wifi on through terminal
I also have some issues with wireless on Loki. What I did:
Open the terminal/console and type:
rfkill list all
You should probably get a result like this:
0: sony-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no 1: sony-bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 3: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 4: nfc0: NFC Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
So as you can see Wireless LAN has status: Soft blocked: yes
Now run in the terminal the command:
rfkill unblock 0 /* * or another number which coresponde to your wi-fi (example: sony-wifi): * rfkill unblock <number> */
- If the wireless is still off try to reboot your PC and check if wireless is on. If not try again the first steps.
