Have a HP Pavilion x360 13-s000. Can't seem to get the wifi working on either Ubuntu 14.04 and 15.04. Did multiple Google searches, but now I'll just ask. The wifi card is a Realtek RTL8723BE [10EC:B723]. Can someone help me get this working?
This is what it said after running
lshw in terminal
*-network DISABLED description: Wireless interface product: RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:08:00.0 logical name: wlan0 version: 00 serial: d8:5d:e2:62:9d:e5 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless configuration: broadcast=yes driver=rtl8723be driverversion=3.19.0-28-generic firmware=N/A latency=0 link=no multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn
rfkill unblock all it still shows wireless is softblocked.
rfkill list all
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no 2: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I have followed the solution here, however the issue remains unresolved. My wifi has never once worked yet, if that helps at all.
The output of
rfkill list all is now
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: acer-wireless: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no
The Wireless LAN and acer-wireless seemed to have switched positions.
Solution: buy a different laptop……
