[Bug 1324095] Re: [Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro] ideapad_laptop kernel module breaks wireless


I have to blacklist the ideapad_laptop module too if i want to get my
wifi ON. I have a Lenovo g50-30. Should it be added in the patch too
somehow? I tested ubuntu 15.04 beta2 live and still no wifi detected.

  [Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro] ideapad_laptop kernel module breaks wireless

Status in The Linux Kernel:
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux package in Fedora:

Bug description:
  With the ideapad_laptop module loaded there is no wlan0 (or other wifi
  device) present. Booting without any explicit blacklist config the
  ideapad_laptop kernel module gets loaded, and there are no wlan0
  device present.

  If I yet again load the ideapad_laptop module, using modprobe, the wlan0 device goes away. Here is the dmesg output from that.

  WORKAROUND: For the wireless network to work on my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Laptop I need blacklist/rmmod the ideapad_laptop kernel module. Running rmmod on the module results in the wlan0 device becoming present, and NetworkManager being able to connect to a local wifi network. Here is the dmesg output after the rmmod command:
