Would this possibly help you? Read the last post. Maybe completely off base so sorry if it is.

Apologies for the late acknowledgement of your advice on rfkil

It is present in my M11. It comes up as:
Usage: rfkill [options] command
Options:
--version show version (0.4-1 (Debian))
Commands:
help
event
list [IDENTIFIER]
block IDENTIFIER
unblock IDENTIFIER
where IDENTIFIER is the index no. of an rfkill switch or one of:
<idx> all wifi wlan bluetooth uwb ultrawideband wimax wwan gps fm

I havent applied it as yet and wonder if you could give some guidance.

Regards

http://main.mepis-deb.org/M11packages.html
contains a download link for suitable ceni deb, so you can download it using your connected O/S.

My M11 has been connected using ceni for a long time.

Well, Peter, my version of rfkill still shows the same commands.
Agree with you that it seems rather drastic.

I can mail you a copy of ceni if you want to try it.
GuiGuy can probably be more help than I,
as he is running Mepis 11.

May I suggest going to the Mepis 11 manual to the network section here> http://www.mepiscommunity.org/user_manu ... tion05-6-0 and try to connect from a terminal. I remember sometimes having to run dhclient etc sometimes when the assistant would do that. Have not ran 11 for a long time but think it's worth a try. :cool:

Apologies in replying. I have been distracted with a wee problem with the new Firefox, but that is now resolved meantime.

I will work through the suggestions above and let you know what happens

Download it, copy to a USB stick, plug the stick into your M11 machine and install the ceni deb.
