Ubuntu – Rfkill does not work for all the devices listed

11.10rfkill

when I write rfkill list I get this

0: sony-wifi Wireless LAN
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 acer-wireless does not change no matter what I do. I checked the switch gave the rfkill unblock all it works for all the other exepct for that one.

If you remove acer-wmi, does your wireless come to life?

    sudo modprobe -r acer-wmi
    sudo rfkill unblock all

If so, blacklist it:

    sudo su
    echo "blacklist acer-wmi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
