[Bug 1288550] Re: wifi LED on laptop does not turn on when woken up from sleep


Sayantan Das, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu
better. As per http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-
support/product/vostro-3300/drivers an update to your computer's buggy
and outdated BIOS is available (A12). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?

If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, and the information above is provided, then
please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.

  wifi LED on laptop does not turn on when woken up from sleep

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Broadcom BCM4313 wifi card which works out of the box on
  Ubuntu 14.04 beta. The wifi LED also works when the laptop is started.
  HOwever, when the laptop is woken up from sleep, the wifi LED does not
  turn back on. The Bluetooth LED works as expected.  I am using the
  opensource wifi driver which comes preinstalled with Ubuntu 14.04.

  I am using a Dell Vostro 3300 laptop
