Default Bug#601976: firmware-ralink: Wireless network unusable when kernel loads with the wireless function button powered off

Package: firmware-ralink
Version: 0.27
Severity: important

After a safe-upgrade on my testing system on 2010-10-23, when the system starts
with the wireless function button powered off in my laptop, the network
interface appears disabled, and it's impossible to enable it.

If the system starts with the wireless function button powered on, the network
interface works normally, and you can enable and disable it powered on and off
the wireless function button.

This is the output of "lshw" about mi wireless card:

# lshw -C network
PCI (sysfs)

Sounds like a missing rfkill driver. Please provide full output from
"dmesg" immediately after booting, "lspci -vvnn", "lsmod",
"grep . /sys/class/dmi/id/*_{vendor,name,version}", and "acpidump" as
attachments.

Sorry for the slow response,
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

The laptop with this issue is dead, so don't worry. I can't remember the details, but I think I solved this problem, althought I don't know how exactly.
It doesn't matter now, so you can mark this bug as closed.


Thank you very much, David.

Drat. Do you remember the make and model of the laptop?

Thanks,
Jonathan

Hi again,

Of course I remember. It was a "Targa", model "Traveller 1576 X2". If you need more details about the hardware, I have all the manuals yet.

Greetings, David.
