Bug#756947: unble to re-enable wifi/bt after hardware or software disable


You seem to be using '02:04.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation
PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)' with
ipw2200 driver (+ correctly loaded non-free firmware blob
'ipw2200-bss.fw') as your wireless card and '03f0:011d Hewlett-Packard
Bluetooth 1.2 Interface [Broadcom BCM2035]' as your bluetooth module.

Quick googling of an ipw2200 error message from your dmesg log
('ipw2200: Failed to send CARD_DISABLE: Command timed out.') returns
quite a few similar issues with your card.

However, you mentioned that also your bluetooth module gets disabled,
which suggests that the problem might not be directly related to your
wireless card. Can you please try rfkill as Russ suggested in his reply?

So, after your wifi gets disabled, execute 'rfkill unblock' and check if
anything changed.

BTW Which desktop environment are you using?
