Subject description: ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill
 

Hi!

Precise 5.4.3 network scan with AR9285 gives me an error:

Code:

Error!
Failed to raise interface Wlan0.
Failed command was: ifconfig wlan0 up
Error returned was:
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill


Puppy network wizard detects the AR9285 as wlan0 with ath9k.

"rfkill list" gives:
Code:

0:  hp-wifi: wlan
                  Soft blockes: yes
                  Hard blocked: no
1:  hp-bluetooth: bluetooth
                  Soft blockes: yes
                  Hard blocked: no
2:  phy0: wlan
                  Soft blockes: no
                  Hard blocked: yes


The Notebook from HP has a f12/wifi button. It has effect on the "hard blocked" entries of points 0 and 1, but not 2.

Is there any solution?

Bye
Olaf

I have tried both a few hours before; have found that in an other forum-topic. Nothing changed.

I have boot Suse SLED, WLAN works: the f12 key has the correct function (wireless on/off), the Light/LED on the f12-button changed from red to blue, then it works.
But when I boot the Notebook (HP 635), the LED is always red, and change to blue when Suse is bootet.

I think puppy does not work correct with the f12-key.

Found the solution (hope so...):

Bios -> System Configuration -> Action Keys Mode -> change from "Enabled" to "Disabled" -> save -> boot puppy -> press fn+F12 -> Wireless Wizard -> scan -> .... it works!

This changed the way of using the F-keys from directly press F1/F12 to "fn + F1/F12".
I do not know why. Perhaps someone has the same problem and found this topic.

Bye

Hi audith

Welcome to the forum. Now this thread has been marked solved by the OP I recommend you start a new thread. Try to include as much information as possible, for example-

* which puppy version you are using
* what hardware you have - especially wifi chipset
* what procedures you have carried out already to attempt connection

you can get detail hardware info by going to
PuppyMenu > System > HardInfo

Network device will probably be under Devices > PCI Devices
