This should have been fixed in recent kernels, and some patchs have
been sent to stable to fix that.
What kernel are you using ?

That was tried using Debian's 2.6.32-3-486 kernel packages.

Cheers,

*I* sent your previous patches to stable because you apparently couldn't
be bothered. I know which models you have blacklisted and the 900A is
not one of them.

I'm curious as to why this is only now an issue with 900A, as it seems
to be a recently developed problem (900A is an older model, supported on
2.6.26 since lenny, provided you use the rt2860 module for wifi from
non-free and atl1e from main). Do we think this is because newer
editions of this model have a newer BIOS? And in that case, is our
approach wrong? Should we be focusing on model at all, or on BIOS version?

This problem is due to a new and buggy feature in eeepc-laptop.

Could this also be what's keeping wi-fi and LAN from working on my 900HA? *Here's my post about it on the debian user forums:*http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=50498

Currently I'm running Ubuntu because it works and debian doesn't (for me, with my current knowledge of linux) but I'd rather be part of the Debian community.

Thanks for that (again) .
But you there is also
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=blobdiff;f=drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-
laptop.c;h=9a844caa3756717e9dd355d1309b6bf6c46cfb4 d;hp=6a47bb7066d8587410938665bd5558d9795379b7;hb=b c9d24a3aeb1532fc3e234907a8b6d671f7ed68f;hpb=ced69c 59811f05b2f8378467cbb82ac6ed3c6a5a
which may fix the issue even if 900A is not blacklisted. Did you try
this patch ?

> This problem is due to a new and buggy feature in eeepc-laptop.

Could you give me the concerned commit ?
Thanks

I'm not the one who owns an Eee 900A. How about paying a bit more
attention to who you're writing to?

I was referring to the rfkill support which is 'new' since 2.6.26.
