Hello there, since I upgraded my system to gentoo-sources 3.8.3 can't connect using my wifi device.

Code:

rfkill list                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   21:20
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no


I tried everything and nothing worked. My configuration and some testes:

Code:


/etc/init.d/net.wlp5s0 restart                                                                                                                                                                                                                21:24

zhushazang ...

I've had a somewhat similar issue with ath5k, for some reason a softblock is enabled when the interface is brought down, I assume it has something to do with the kernel setting CRDA (but I haven't had much time to look into the issue).

Anyhow, the solution is simple:

Code:
# emerge net-wireless/rfkill
# rfkill unblock all

As my block happens on bringing down the interface I've added a postdown() to /etc/conf.d/net (which allows me to restart the interface, change networks, etc)

Code:
postdown() {

rfkill unblock all

return 0

}

You could add a preup() function ...

Code:
preup() {

rfkill unblock all

return 0

}

Not sure what else can be done ... I think the issue arrived sometime in 3.7.x ... and seems its still present in 3.8 (though, that said, I haven't been able to boot 3.8.{1-4} and not for want of trying)

HTH & best ... khay

Thank for your attention man, but i've already tried to use rfkill

Code:

[root@ib02 ~]$ rfkill unblock all                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          8:34
[root@ib02 ~]$ rfkill list                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 8:34
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no


Or more hardly

Code:

echo 0 > /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/soft && cat /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/soft
1


But something still locking my wifi.

Regards

In which case I'm not sure what else to suggest. I assume you've checked to see if any process (like dhcpcd) may be running? Also, does modinfo show any parameters for the driver, like no_hw_rfkill_switch or similar?
