I have a problem with the wifi.
I need to plug to power to activate it.
- LAPTOP ACER ES1-522-223C
- Debian 8.7
firmware-atheros V 0.43 ath9k installed
lspci --> 02:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
I have to plug the power to make it change and I can unplug the power after it starts. Even when laptop goes suspend or any similar mode I need to plug the power to get wifi working again.
When rfkill list after pluging in the power I get the following:
sudo rfkill list [...] 1: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no [...]
I've tried everything I have read and I am beginning to suspect that it could be a BIOS problem or something related to the Fn+F3 key. The idea about the Fn+F3 is not really clear because the other combinations of Fn+FX are working.
