The Wireless Card in my Notebook will not wok anymore.
I do a fresh new Gentoo Installation on the x121e Notebook becouse i do a long time no updates and i put now a SSD in the notebook and remove the old HDD.
With Gentoo and Kernel 3.X and with sys-firmware/iwl1000-ucode the Wireless-Card runs fine.

lspci
Code:
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak]


I have emerge "sys-firmware/iwl1000-ucode", must i anything configure for this?

With "rfkill list" i see:
Code:
0: tpacpi_bluetooth_sw: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: yes
1: tpacpi_wwan_sw: Wireless WAN
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: yes


dmesg show me this

In the old Gentoo installation on the HDD i remeber there are 0, 1 and 2. The Notebook has a Modem for a Cell-Card.

What can i do that the wireless-card works again?

How can i see if the driver is correctly loaded?

Do i need any special configuration?

SarahS93 ...

does the X121E have a hardware switch (ie, on the keyboard F-keys)? If so does toggling the switch have any effect on the soft/hard block? Also, does 'modinfo iwlwifi' show a 'no_hw_rfkill_switch' (or similar) param?

Yes, it have a hardwareswitch.

Found the Problem, if i compile the driver as module, it works. Very strange. I do not understand why this so is.

SarahS93 ... firmware loading, you can't do that if the driver is builtin.
