[Bug 1584533] Re: Lenovo X220 unable to wlan after resume from sleep


Rudolf Leitgeb, as per http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-
an update to your computer's buggy, insecure, and outdated BIOS is
available (1.42). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?

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.

Also, you don't have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, if the problem is still reproducible:
1) Please provide the output of the following terminal command (not perform an apport-collect):
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
2) Please make a comment specifically advising on if there was an improvement or not.
3) Please mark this report Status Confirmed.

If it's not reproducible, please mark this as Invalid.

Thank you for your understanding.

  Lenovo X220 unable to wlan after resume from sleep

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I just upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04, and now whenever I wake up my laptop
  from sleep (hibernate doesn't work due to encrypted home directory), I
  am unable to connect to any wlan network. After a hot reboot or cold
  start everything is back to normal.

  Network manager would allow me to select already known wlan networks
  through "connect to hidden network", however, it would not allow me to
  establish the actual connection (connect button never becomes active).

  I will attach four files to this bug report:

  1. dmesg-pastreboot: dmesg after a hot reboot
  2. dmesg-pastsleep: dmesg after wakeup from sleep
  3. syslog-pastreboot: syslog snippet from timeframe after reboot
  4. syslog-pastsleep: syslog snippet from timeframe after wakeup from sleep

  Please let me know, if you need any further data or info.
