ade05fr ...

if the card is 'hard blocked' this means the card is blocked via a hardware switch, and there is no way to toggle this via software, so, if you say there is no hardware switch then this can only mean there is an issue with the driver/firmware. Is the driver built as a module? I seem to remember some post here re iwl that stated that this is required. Sorry, but thats all I can suggest might be at issue.

best ... khay

A [SOLVED] post without any explanation is not really solved, from the forum point of view.
