    freshly installed Linux Mint: Wifi wont start


    Hi! So i read the FAQ and it told me to post here so.... I just installed linux Mint 17.1 cinnamon 64bit.

    When i want to turn on wifi in the system tray, the button pops right back to 'off'. Everything else seems to work fine. Also, the wifi hardware cant be broken because on Win7 on the same laptop it runs fine.


    I have a laptop with a built-in wifi card, the system readout from the FAQ is as follows:

    EDIT:

    Solved it! In Win7 i had to deactivate the hard block of my wifi. That key was only accessible in Win7 because it had the proprietary drivers for my laptop. Pressing the same button in Mint would only switch the soft block. the command rfkill list helped too.
