Description Antti Kaijanmäki 2009-12-05 20:10:22 UTC
The new rfkill support introduced in rtl8187 driver does not work on my Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 laptop. The driver does not react on the state of the switch, it simply thinks that the kill switch is constantly on. Before the state of the switch was completely ignored and I could use wlan no matter if the switch was on or off.
