Default My Wifi won't be enabled on Mini 1018... openSuSE - 12-13-2011, 12:26 AM

I wonder how can tell the keyboard that supposes to enable wifi with F2 (without Fn pressed), to send a code that opensuse understands...

In /var/log/messages I see can't enable rawmode for keycode 240

rfkill says that all wifi cards (the internal rtl8188ce and two others that I plugged into USB ports) are hard blocked...

The kernel in opensuse 12.1 is version 3, and the working 64 bit module for rtl8192ce (the same driver that rtl8188ce), was included in kernel 2.6.38...

It is a real pain... could someone help me please?

Please note that the other two cards are a realtek and a ralink cards that work out of the box in any other computer, and all are equally "blocked by a hardware switch"... so I believe that the problem is with the switch and not the driver.
