I have a HP Pavilion dv2500 (I think the exact model is dv2556ea?). I've installed Fedora 9 (dual boot with Vista) on it,
It has a Wireless 3945ABG/BG card built in, but I can't use the wireless on it. dmesg contains:
iwl3945: Radio disabled by HW RF Kill switch
I've seen a couple of other threads about this on other forums. Such as this one:
Some of them say you need to make sure the switch is off (therefore radio enabled) during boot. However, I've tried booting several times with the switch off and with it on, but it always gives the above message. I've also tried restarting haldaemon.
The LED next to the switch is always red too, in Windows it is blue when the wireless is enabled.
Can anyone help please?
