https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hi,I have installed Arch on an old Laptop (Medion MD96400) and have problems getting the Wlan to work. The Laptop has a  push-button to toggle the Wlan on/off - not a switch and the BIOS has only [last state/disabled] as an option (last state is activated).On this Laptop are ArchLinux and Slacko 5.3.3 (a PuppyLinux spin-off based on Slackware) installed and on Slacko the Wlan works out off the box (no need to push the toggle, but the toggle also works as expected) and on Arch it says it is hardblocked (and the toggle has no effect on this):[arch]$ sudo rfkill list0: phy0: Wireless LANSoft (HowTos)
