Hi all!
i have an Asus Zenbook UX303U laptop, quite a piece of hardware based on Intel Sky Lake architecture.

Things works quite well, but i have a strange issue with the WiFi. Upon each boot, i need to put it "offline" and then back online before i can actually see my WiFi netoworks... I am using Plasma desktop and NetworkManager.

It is quite annoying... specially because after i toggle it once, then it works flawlessly!

lspci says:

Code:

02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7265 (rev 59)


[UPDATE]
Well it seems that upon boot the WiFi interface is not enabled at all. "ifconfig" does not see it... i need to cycle it in the network manager applet, and then i see it. Is there a way to make sure the interface is initializated at boot?

[SOLVED]

Rfkill utility was missing, after emerging it, now it works.

Hi,

the wireless card can be disabled physically like when the wireless hardware button is press. Check the state of the card with the command
Code:
rfkill list

when it is not seen and if you see that the card is software and/or hardware blocked do
Quote:
rfkill unblock all

and check again it state with rfkill list.

I was missing the rfkill utility. After emerging it, it seems that the issue had been resolved and now on boot the card works. Most probably, i guess that rfkill should be a dependance of network manager?
