$ lspci | grep -i wireless 0d:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000
OS is Linux Mint 12, using gnome2/compiz.
I've got HP Pavilion dv7 899AW, sandybridge 915 chipset
The problem is that the orange/blue light for the wireless won't stop flashing. Probably flashing due to activity.
I tried this fix, but it didn't work: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1699037&page=3
Also, the mute light stays permanently orange.
