laptop wireless disabled after bootng

My hp nc8430 laptop has a wireless adapter that works fine. But, I have to enable it (wireless) after every boot.
The "edit Connections" dialog for this has the "Connect Automatically" box checked.

What am I missing?

I have an HP laptop (EliteBook 6930p) that does the same thing. W7 on one side works fine, boot into MX-14 and the wireless is turned off after booting. I fixed it by entering the BIOS and restoring defaults or resetting the BIOS, can't remember which now. But I think if I switch back and boot into W7 I have to reset it again--haven't been there for a while.

Try that, or do a web search like this (how I got it):

Code: Select all

HP <your model> linux wireless
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, SSD 120 GB, Data 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
Personal: XPS 13, 4.18.0-19.3-liquorix, 4 GB

I just click on "Enable Wireless" and it turns on. Tested this laptop on a couple other distros and don't have the same problem. Not that big a deal, just annoying.

MX Rocks, anyway!

Sure would be for me--sorry I misunderstood your OP.

Wonder why MX-14 is alone on this? Maybe this will help from the great Arch Wiki:

wireless is enabled after booting with Apodio & ArtistX but requires the rfkill trick for PCLos.
I've been looking for a distro that is good at or comes with fully installed and functional Programming IDEs and video/audio editors. You don't know until you try them. and oof course a distro that everything just works and uses minimal resources and MX fits that bill.
