I have a Galago Pro running Fedora 29. The computer went into suspension because of low battery. Now, Fedora does not detect the wireless adapter -- meaning the gui manager returns "No WiFi adapter found...". The adapter was working correctly prior to the suspension.

rfkill list shows no hard or soft block.
lspci shows:

ip link shows:

link/ether a0:a8:cd:df:ff:84 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff  

ip link set wlp3s0 up has no effect

I have tried a hard (cold) reboot, restarting networking, and restarting network manager.

  • How about a cold reboot? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:28
  • I have rebooted. Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:30
  • yeah, but was it a cold or a warm reboot? Have your tried turning it off and on? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:46
  • Thanks. It was a cold reboot. I edited my question for clarity. Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:48
  • Was it recently installed? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 16:09

Run an

rfkill list

followed by an

rfkill unblock x

where x is the correct index taken from the list.

  • You did see that rfkill list shows no blocks, right? I still need to run this? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:45
  • Sorry about that. Read too fast. I thought it was a power saving feature, disabling the wifi. Does the keyboard have a function key to enable wifi? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:55
  • NP. No keyboard function, nor hardware switch Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:56
  • It's not in Airplane mode? Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:57
  • No, not indicated anyway. Shouldn't rfkill list show that? I'll double check that bluetooth is working, just to be certain Commented Jan 16, 2019 at 15:59

Posting for anyone who comes across this thread in the future.

It turns out that the low battery suspension must have caused some file corruptions. I did a DNF upgrade, and afterwards everything works correctly.

Thanks to all who helped.
