Every time my networking service restarts, my wireless lan becomes soft blocked:
Code:
# rfkill list                                                                                                                                                                 
0: hci0: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no


Why is this happening? Shouldn't netifrc be smart enough to unblock my wireless when starting and restarting the service? I don't have anything unusual or special in my /etc/conf.d/net:
Code:
config_wlp3s0="dhcp"

Hello there. It would help if you posted a bit more information. Do you have wpa_supplicant as well as a network manager? For example I use wpa_supplicant + Wicd. Wicd is added to the default runlevel and there for I deleted my network interfaces from the default runlevel. Because of this none of my interfaces are soft blocked.

I do not have network manager, and I do have wpa_supplicant installed. My wpa_supplicant config file is also fairly basic:
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1

network={
        ssid=""
        psk=""
}
