Hi Seth, thanks for looking at this. So I decided to do “rfkill unblock all” and sure enough my laptop wireless was unblocked and the usb dongle was unblocked, so I tried to use my laptop wireless and it connect and disconnect 3 or 4 times, then went back to hardblock. However, once i do rfkill unblock all, further rfkill list never returns. Am I understanding correctly that when you unblock both 0 and 1 it works temporarily, but a short time later it stops working again and displays a soft block on the hp-wifi device? The problem is that the laptop is starting with the wifi default to off.

I’d assume you’ve tried this, but since you didn’t mention it specifically — pressing the wifi button doesn’t unblock your wireless? Join Date Aug Beans 2.
